Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Walt Disney World, Orlando

The hotel

Tropical gardens, lavish luaus and calm waves characterise Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Gentle people, laughter and good cheer help every member of the family to capture that laid-back South Pacific mood in no time at all. Rooms are airy and have a tropical feel with bamboo and wood décor. When exploring the resort, tell the kids to look out for the unique Kukai Nut tree. The only one of its kind in the state of Florida, the tree was brought to the Walt Disney World Resort from its native Hawaii. The hotel is on the monorail system that will whizz you to the Magic Kingdom Park.

The magic starts when you book the room. Be sure to download the MyDisneyExperience app for your phone. You can even use it to open your hotel room door! Of course the magic bands do that too. You can signup for notifications about when your room is ready and skip the front desk all together. But about the hotel and grounds. Top notch,… Read more
The magic starts when you book the room. Be sure to download the MyDisneyExperience app for your phone. You can even use it to open your hotel room door! Of course the magic bands do that too. You can signup for notifications about when your room is ready and skip the front desk all together. But about the hotel and grounds. Top notch, immaculately maintained, and a lot of fun just wandering around. It's nice to see the Magic Kingdom just across the lake. We had a Deluxe Studio room - it was nice to have a 1.5 baths and the rain shower with a seat was great. The only problem with it was now I have to put one in the house at home. The pictures online are 100% correct and give you a good feel for the place. Hope to be back again soon! Read less

We loved this resort, however the front desk made several mistakes (only mistakes we experienced the whole time). They didn't do our pin numbers correct, our keys weren't working, and they forgot to give us our shuttle cards. These all sound like simple mistakes, but we were only at the hotel for 2 nights, so it was just more time wasted in line… Read more
We loved this resort, however the front desk made several mistakes (only mistakes we experienced the whole time). They didn't do our pin numbers correct, our keys weren't working, and they forgot to give us our shuttle cards. These all sound like simple mistakes, but we were only at the hotel for 2 nights, so it was just more time wasted in line when we didn't really have the time to waste. Other than those mistakes it was great. We did the character breakfast and that was cute! Watched the fireworks from the beach (too tired to go back into the park) and that was nice! Great resort, just fix the issues with the front desk! Read less

From the theming to location to service this resort was awesome. The whole family enjoyed our time here. All the staff we interacted with were spectacular. The kids enjoyed being able to hop on the monorail and head to Magic Kingdom or Epcot. The breakfast with Lilo and Stich was our favorite character breakfast of the trip.

The Luau is great. Feels like you are in Hawaii. The dances are performed beautifully. Each one tells a story. The servers were very attentive and the food was delicious as expected. Enjoyed it very much. Come hungry.

We went to the Spirit of Aloha dinner our last day at Disney. It was a neat experience that the kids enjoyed, even though they were tired. The fire, of course, was their favorite part. Everything was well organized, and they got a lot of people in the seating very efficiently. Definitely pay the extra money to sit up front. When you sat down… Read more
We went to the Spirit of Aloha dinner our last day at Disney. It was a neat experience that the kids enjoyed, even though they were tired. The fire, of course, was their favorite part. Everything was well organized, and they got a lot of people in the seating very efficiently. Definitely pay the extra money to sit up front. When you sat down you had your salad and fruit ready to go. The servers came around for drink orders fairly quickly so you could start your complimentary all you can drink selections of coke products, beer, or wine. Once everyone was seated, they started bringing out the food. It was a good size portion of pulled pork, rice, chicken, and ribs. Everything was tasty. The ribs and pulled pork were a little dry, but still tender with a good flavor. The chick also had a good unique flavor to it. You can also order other options for the kids if they don't like that kind of food for no additional charge. The show was involving and moved quickly. Great experience! Read less
