Very confortable, and the monorail access is awesome! But the restaurantes are frequently overcrowded (don't forget your reservation!), and the lake area is not suitable for bathing. Still, a very good place to stay.

This resort will be lovely............. but not until construction is complete! I was aware at the time of booking of work taking place at this resort but thought it was now only down to the main pool area. The lobby renovations are complete at the time of our visit. My husband and I arrived yesterday for a three night visit... More

Disney's Polynesian Hotel is getting old compared to some of their other properties despite the new construction, especially taking the price into consideration. The magic appears to have been lost. Too bad!

Stayed over New Year. There is construction at the pool, but didn't inconvenience us, and they gave us passes to Blizzard Beach which was great. Stayed in the Tuvalu building which has great fireworks views. Rooms are gorgeous, service great. Not cheap but a great spot for special occasions. We took the dining plan which is also great, especially at... More

We have loved staying at the Polynesian Resort for the past 3 years. The hardest part for me was walking into the lobby when we arrived and not seeing the waterfall...it was unexpected change and I really felt disappointed. Next, they said that our favorite building (tokleru) that we had requested the past few years was now being converted into... More

We just returned today from the Polynesian Resort. We had a great trip. We read reviews which people complained about the construction noise etc. and we were concerned. It was not a problem. We never heard a thing and our building was the Hawaii building right next to the pool construction. The staff was great. Everyone was so attentive and... More

Food was terrible! Room was to far from lobby and ferry. Each staff member answered the same question differently giving false information. We actually hated it so much we spent the night at a different hotel just to get away and have a good meal.

Just returned from a full week at the Polynesian. Yes, there is construction. It didn't bother us as we were in the parks most of the day. You can't beat this location if you have small kids. The monorail to the parks and the boat back from Magic Kingdom make life so much easier. We did rent a car from... More

My wife and I just stayed at this resort to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We honeymooned in Tahiti, and thought this would be a clever substitution for the real thing. Despite the chilly temperatures we endured, it actually did remind us of our time in Papeete. The hotel was undergoing extensive remodeling when we visited (a fact we knew... More

Our stay at the Polynesian Resort was basically one problem after another. To begin with, despite traveling with two adults and two children and notifying the hotel of this well in advance (and providing all of the detailed traveler information that Disney requests), we were provided with a room with a single King bed and informed that no other rooms...
