Let me preface this review by stating that my extended family stayed in the Polynesian in 2013 and absolutely loved the property. This last stay however was not the Disney standard that I am used to. The website states refurbishments, however it is more of a major construction site, with a active hotel running. - The walkway into the hotel... More

Eight of us stayed in 3 rooms for a week and had a wonderful time! Staff was friendly, extremely helpful, always smiling with "Aloha" greeting. Rooms were clean and quiet. Construction was ongoing but did not begin until 10AM and it was interesting to see the 'volcano' coming down. Restaurants--fast service was excellent and had great choices for all of... More

I have wanted to stay at the Polynesian resort for probably more than 20 years. My love of the South Seas, Hawaii, and all things tiki make it a perfect dream hotel for me. After living in Florida for 10 years and moving away, I knew I wanted my kids' first trip to Disney to be at the Polynesian, even... More

After reading reviews to determine what we might be in for when staying during the refurbishments, it seemed that it would not be a problem. This was a mistake. We were in the Hawaii building, which was the Club level building and luckily had the only access to the small beach during the renovations. Otherwise, the main building is somewhat... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. We got to enjoy the magic of Disney and almost feel like we were on a tropical island somewhere. The staff was excellent while we were there. I will say that we had a club room and had express check in at another desk that made it really easy. They went through everything with... More

The construction is not the issue, the lack of signs, the distance from the restaurants to the rooms, the staff that really doesn't seem to want to be there, the overpriced rooms, and not enough restaurants to serve the number of guests at the hotel. Also the monorail service was very spotty and the boats are unscheduled. Really - would... More

This hotel has been our favorite Disney resort to stay in. We are from the Florida West Coast and come her for long weekends or short vacations. This property is one of Disney's first and is due for some serious improvements. They have begun upgrading but the buildings are still very dated - the elevators especially are slow and clunky....

We stayed at the Polynesian for 4 nights and had mixed feelings. The resort is very well kept, a bit dated but nice. But for us the main problem was "eating". Maybe it is because we did not study the disney dining plan with necessay care. Disney has a centralized dinner reservation system which, allows, knowledgeable users to reserve in... More

You would never have known there was so much construction happening around the resort......it had minimal effects on our stay. Disney offered us tickets to Blizzard Beach but we never needed to use them. Kona Café breakfast was very good and drinks at Tambu Lounge were delicious. We loved the convenience of the monorail......buses were efficient too. It was nice... More

We were there in may of 2014 for a week. The construction was ongoing but ok. Looks like it will be awesome when done. The rooms are just ok, but I think it's the best location in the park. Upgraded to the club level which was worth it. Concierge service and lounge alone are worth the dough. There are so... More
