BREAKING NEWS: The Polynesian Monorail is Back!
We’ll how is this for a Labor Day Weekend surprise! We’re over at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort after hearing a rumor that the monorail stop at the Poly had reopened!
MickeyBlog is happy to confirm that this is 100% true!
With construction on the second floor monorail platform at the Poly currently underway, we were surprised to hear that the station stop was in operation.
But sure enough, here’s one of the monorails passing through.
Everything has been opened up at the platform from inside the Polynesian. The doors are no longer blocked off and monorail signage is in place!
Here’s a look at the platform which received an upgrade while Disney was creating the new Porte Cochere on the first floor.
You can see the beautiful multicolored panels on the exterior of the station.
We love how these add some bold pops of color while maintaining that Mid-Century Modern feel of the property.
As you can see, construction is not completely finished. The far end of the platform is still roped off with teams still finishing up the project.
Here’s a look at the cast members now presiding over the platform.
After months upon months of construction, we cannot tell you how amazing it was to be there and see the monorail stop to pick up guests!
As we were hopping on board this morning the platform was relatively empty.
Above is a quick video of us boarding Monorail Red from the Polynesian platform!
We suspect that not many of the resort guests have heard the exciting new as of yet.
What an exciting sprinkle of pixie dust to wake up too!
This is such a momentous day for this beloved Deluxe Property. With the monorail running and the recent guest room refurbishment, it doesn’t get much better than a stay at the Poly!
The image above gives guests a first look at the updated lightning fixtures that have been put into place.
We love the new accents added to the platform giving guests a more dynamic arrival to the Poly.
The monorail officially opened three hours ago and cast members are hard at work this morning to make sure that the reopening goes off without a hitch!
Not only the reopening of the monorail convenient for Polynesian guests going to and from the theme parks, but it’s also great for theme park and other deluxe resort guests.
Now getting between the Grand Floridan, the Polynesian and the Contemporary is easier than ever. It’s also super convenient for guests visiting the Polynesian to visit Ohana, Kona Cafe or Trader Sam’s!
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely!
