CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Work Continues On Poly Porte Cochere
Good Afternoon Disney friends! Our MickeyBlogger is out adventuring at Disney World today and popped by Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to see how construction is coming along!
Last week we shared with you the first images focal point of the Poly’s new Porte Cochere which is a wonderful colorful A-Frame that will have pride-of-place as guests pull up.
During our visit today, it looks like work is still being carried out on the piece.
It is currently being constructed in the parking lot adjacent to the Polynesian Resort.
It will eventually be attached to the crane and moved into place at the Poly entrance.
We can’t wait to see it up in all it’s splendor.
It’s hard to see with the shade in these pictures but the front of the structure is striped in beautiful hues of orange and red.
It’s perfectly in keeping with the theme of the Poly and has a real Mid-Century Modern feel to it.
We’ll continue to check throughout the week and promise to let you know as soon as it has it’s rightful place at the Poly entrance.
Below you can see that work continues on the Monorail Platform.
There are still segments of the roof that need to be added.
As well as painting to the exterior which is still sporting a base coat.
As you can see from this image we took below the monorail track, the flooring for the station is still being worked on.
Disney said they hoped to have the whole project completed by next month when the resort will start welcoming back guests.
As we reported last week, the bulk of the room renovations have been completed.
Progress on the new entrance seems to be moving a bit slower but things can seemingly change overnight.
We haven’t yet been able to pop inside to see if any work is being carried out in the Main Ceremonial Hall.
Disney has said that the renovations will include a new fabulous chandelier and other small scale renovations.
It is nice to see the Poly Entrance and Monorail Stop get a bit of sprucing up as arrival at this resort isn’t as grand as some of the other deluxe properties.
We’ve got a feeling that’s all about to change..stay tuned!
