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.

I stayed in the moorea building room #1026 omg the view is amazing I could see the bungalows and space mountain in the background. I loved the two bathrooms especially the rainfall shower head. I love how you can take the monorail to the other resorts or to MK and Epcot. This is my favorite Disney resort!

I stayed at the Polynesian back in 2014 and it is my favorite resort I have ever stayed at! I loved the rooms, I loved the view of the Magic Kingdom, and I loved the overall atmosphere of the resort. The Polynesian has some amazing dining options as well. Ohana is a great experience for the character breakfast and the dinner that offers views of the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom. Kona Cafe was also very good. I highly recommend the Tonga Toast. Dole Whips are also served at the resort. Every time I go to Disney, I make sure I stop by the Polynesian at least once. Read less

The Polynesian is my all time favorite Disney World hotel. It is beautiful, and is very close to the Magic Kingdom, just one monorail stop away! They have 2 great gift shops at the hotel, with exclusive merchandise that’s Hawaiian themed! The scent in the lobby is amazing too. The rooms are always beautiful and clean, the gardens are beautiful too. 3 great restaurants are located at this hotel, and they are: Capt. Cook’s, Pineapple Lanai, and Ohana. All three are great! The volcano pool is great, and you can sit at the beach and watch Happily Ever After at night. I love the little tiki statue in the lobby as well, and it’s always great to get a lei when you check in. I cannot wait to be back at this hotel. Pin trading here is also amazing! See ya real soon, Poly! Read less
