Polynesian Village Resort construction - March 29 2021
Posted: Friday April 2, 2021 8:32am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The all new monorail station at Disney's Polynesian Resort is really starting to take shape this week with the concrete platform now clearly visible.

Moving beyond the Great Ceremonial House work is still underway on the interior room renovations, with multiple buildings being worked on at the same time.

On the grounds, a lot of utility work is taking place, with new pipes being laid between buildings.

The work is planned to be complete for a late July 2021 reopening of the resort - read more about the details here.

This definitely looks like the station will be completed by 5/1 :cool:🙏. It's just a big deck with plantings, right?!

Likely the area was flatten for easier access for the larger construction equipment used for both the roof of the main building and the demo of the monorail station. I would expect the landscaping to start taking shape after the bulk of the Monorail station is complete.

There’s still a lot of construction left of the new entrance so I’m sure there’s time yet for them to redevelop a water feature! No need yet for such despair! :)

Looks like they dug the original ponds out and then flattened and leveled the ground...I would think if they were putting the water feature back in they would have already started site prep for the new ponds... Plus they would probably have already generated some concept art of the new entrance... Unless it is so underwhelming they are just keeping it quiet. My guess it will be a lot of uninspired landscape and a few torches and fiberglass tikis... It's like they just can't stand to leave a beautifully designed original hotel that is wildly popular alone...they have to get in there and value engineer it... So sad.

Walked past the rooms the are redoing. It's a total redo down to the studs. Through the plastic on the interior of the patio doors there are stacks of RockWool.

I never consider the coconuts (allergic) but I always consider the pineapples (lapu lapu)

I hope so! It was really depressing to watch them rip out that garden area. I'll be watching... Always watching. :D

Can see what looks like the new roof trusses staged in the parking lot.
