We just got back yesterday from our 5 day stay at Polynesian. Was with my BF and his 12 year old son. We loved it. Check in was a breeze. No wait time. Manager was present and made sure everyone was in place and ready to check our DME bus in. We were greeted with a lei and lots of... More

Just spent a night at the Polynesian and I thought it was back to the future! The decor screamed 70's or at best 80's. The rooms are not soundproof so we heard kids running back and forth all night. The one good thing is the employees were friendly but it took us forever to register and check-in. For the price... More

We have stayed at a good majority of the Disney Resorts over the years. It has been one of our most looked forward to aspects of a Disney vacation is "Where are we going to stay this year?!?!" We tour the resorts every year we go to get an idea of where we think we might want to stay next,... More

We stayed her in August during a period of construction at this hotel for a discounted rate. It was still my favorite experience at a Disney hotel and we've stayed at all the big ones. The staff is professional and courteous, the restaurants are great (make sure you make your reservations before your stay) and the atmosphere is one of... More

Staff members at the hotel could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The hotel was clean and appealing overall, and while we knew renovations were happening, we were unprepared for the scope. About 50-75% of the resort views were hidden by fences, the small ponds at the entrance were half-drained and scummy. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and... More

We have always wanted to stay at the poly but being one of the most expensive resorts we just haven't justified the cost. Finally early December they had great pass holder rates so we decided we would take a quick trip. We were so bummed it didn't have a holiday feel, plus the weather was crappy and you have to... More

We choose the Poly for our disney trip because it was in our opinion, the coolest theme for a monorail hotel. We previously spent our first trip to Disney at AKL which was an awesome stay but just a little too remote. Liking the idea of staying in a hotel on the monorail, we quickly settled on the tropical Polynesian.... More

We did not have the luxury to stay at this Resort, however we were staying at another Disney property. It was our Son's bday and we had visited AK and Chef Mickey for dinner. After Dinner we were suggested by a cast member to take the monorail to the Polynesian Resort and to follow the paths to the "pool areas"... More

We booked here again for the third time this year not knowing what to expect with construction. We stayed between Aug 25-Aug31, four friends in a Club Level Garden view room. I cant express how "worth it" club level is. The appetizers, cocktails, breakfast, and snack are. The little touches like chocolates on your pillow and not having to wait... More

While there was construction present because of the updates they are doing, the overall experience that we had was fantastic. The staff were courteous and were extremely accommodating. Because the pool was closed they were offering free passes to Blizzard Beach to all guests that wanted to attend. Additionally, no construction noises could be heard, and the only crews we... More
