Absolutely beautiful resort. I've had this on my bucket list for a long long time. It was everything I expected and then some. We had a room walking distance to the ticket and transportation center which was fabulous. We were able to watch the fireworks from the hotel common

We stayed at the Polynesian for three nights in early November - it was one of my first Disney experiences as a kid and this trip was just as magical! It is a gorgeous hotel with a consistent South Pacific style/theme. The staff is amazingly helpful and they all go out of their

Mahalo to you for submitting this fantastic review of your visit to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! The Polynesian is perhaps my favorite Walt Disney World Resort hotel, so it brings me so much joy to hear you loved it, too. From watching Happily Ever After on the beach to enjoying a Dole Whip by the pool, if you want to relax, you're at the perfect place! Club Level at this Resort really is such a great value for families, for all of the reasons you mentioned, especially all of the delicious food and beverage options offered throughout the day. I'm glad you got to visit Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, too. It really is a full entertainment experience. It seems that even after all these years, the Polynesian was still the perfect fit for your family. Thanks for being a part of our 'ohana, and we can't wait to welcome you back for another tropical getaway soon! Kristina Disney Social Reviews

We are a family of four, with two small kids, that stayed at the Polynesian for our first trip to Disney World. We chose this resort due to monorail access and its loyal fan following. It was an OK stay; in retrospect, given our personal circumstance it may have been better to

Thanks for visiting us! You’ll never forget your first visit and I’m glad to hear that while you had some disappointments with the upkeep of the Resort and the quality of your room, you enjoyed your stay overall. I am sorry to hear that the crib we provided was not the best fit for your infant. We also offer complimentary Pack ‘n Play playards, which may be a better option for your next visit. I hope the next time you visit us, you’ll consider another locale. I would recommend either Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge or Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Both of these Deluxe Resorts offer childcare options for kids aged 4-12. Additionally, the independent company Kid’s Nite Out provides options for In-Room Babysitting at any of our Disney Resort hotels. We can't wait to have your family of Mouseketeers visit us again!

Went to WDW September 2-8, 2018 and stayed at The Polynesian. This had been my dream resort forever and I couldn't believe I was finally staying here! Prior, we have stayed at Caribbean Beach Resort and the Fort Wilderness cabins. When we got to the resort, we did not receive a

Aloha, Felicia! Mother-daughter trips are so special and when they include staying at an oasis of tropical palms and island ambiance, the experience is unique and exotic. Though you felt some disappointment with the check-in process, it seems that you and your daughter fit right in and enjoyed that spirit of the South Pacific that permeates this location. This classic Walt Disney World Resort is so iconic and charming, it’s no wonder why it continues to be a Guest favorite. The multiple transportation options, including direct access to the Walt Disney World Monorail, is a definite perk to staying here. We hope that you and your ‘ohana will return to stay with us again when your travels bring you back our way. Kendra Disney Social Reviews

Great resort with a true island theme, O’Hara is a great restaurant but is very busy. Rooms are very nice, great stores and shops. Don’t miss out on getting a dole whip out behind the hotel. Excellent place to stay.

Yes, you can look up the show times on the Disney website or just Google Electric Water Pageant Walt Disney World. I say show times because the WP can be seen at different times in different resorts

I’ve heard the Minnie Van services from MCO is amazing. It’s the same as Limo, they have someone waiting for you at baggage claim, they pull your luggage. Refreshments available in the car. Based on what I have seen, I would take that. Plus it’s super fun since it’s red & white polka dots!

"Splurge and get Club Level lagoon or theme park view, your on Vacation!"
"My favorite standard room at the POLY is the beachside of FIJI, 3rd floor."
"If you love the water, beach, seeing/hearing boats, Tokelau far end perfect!"
