Polynesian Village Resort Great Ceremonial House refurbishment - December 2 2020
Posted: Thursday December 3, 2020 9:10am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Today we have a quick update from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort where work is continuing on the remodel of the arrival area at the Great Ceremonial House.

Nearly everything is cleared from the entrance area as crews prepare to renew that part of the structure.

On the rooftop, installation of the new beams is continuing.

The project is planned to be complete for a reopening in the summer of 2021.

Looks like just some massive root removal for something that was left alone for far too long. Any piping or pits would have been compromised by this strangling horror.

That trees has been missing for a couple weeks now. Based on the size of it I’m assuming it was becoming a hazard with either the roots destroying something or too big/tall to have so close to the building. The trunk/stump structure that was left over was MASSIVE probably 4-6’ wide

FWIW, another site (MickeyBlog, if it's allowed) reported that they asked a CM about the construction walls by the Pineapple Lanai. The CM said the workers were replacing the grease traps for the restaurants, which are buried in that location.

There was previously an entrance/exit into that lot from Floridian way for working cast to use. It was recently removed as part of the Floridian Way project. This entrance is meant as a replacement for that one.

I’m willing to be wrong, but no one knows yet what they’re rebuilding. So shouldn’t we all wait a little longer before deciding what’s going in that space?

Yeah even so, just having another entrance they have to secure and turn lanes form that road.
