Disney's Polynesian Resort monorail station looks set for a mid-August reopening

Disney appears to be expecting the Polynesian Resort monorail station to be complete for a return to service in mid-August 2021.

In an update this afternoon about the reopening of the EPCOT monorail beam, Disney has indicated that direct bus service to EPCOT from the Polynesian will end in mid-August, leaving guests with the monorail as the primary mode of transportation to EPCOT.

In our latest update from the Polynesian, the station still appears some way-off being complete. As always, dates may be subject to change as construction conditions dictate.

The resort itself will reopen to guests on July 19 with newly refurbished rooms.

I wonder how he got his helicopter so low in order to take these pics?!? bonus points if you know the movie this screen grab is from.

Wow. I am so disappointed in the lack of detail for the new entrance. I really hope that they try to cover these structures to bring that wood look of the old entrance. If not... it looks like the cost-cutting continues. I've seen better displays at Six Flags.

The construction pace is frustrating slow and they need to kick it in gear. Please get this open before October.

I agree and maybe for the same reason. That said, if they were to do something about that, I'd say this is coming along better than I was expecting.

Maybe it's because I already know it's metal, but it doesn't look like wood at all to me. It looks like a steel/aluminum sheet. I'm not planning to stay at the Polynesian anyways, though, so it doesn't matter to me.

Honestly, with these decent shots showing the underside, I don’t mind it. Just looks like wood planks painted white. Works for me.

For as slowly as Disney moves at construction, I'm consistently impressed by how quickly and secretly the horticulture team is able to transform spaces.

Maybe someone who is there will report back if they see this over the derailed non- Poly posts! 🤣 🌺

It goes a bit deeper than cosmetics. Some demo and reconfiguring is needed first then the application of styling.
