This is one of my favorite Disney properties. We have been to Disney every year since 1971, sometimes more than once a year. We have been to all of them.I brought some of my family here- my oldest son and his kids, and my sister and her kids. For sheer beauty you cannot beat this. The lobby is literally a... More

Just returned from a few days with Family at the WDW Polynesian Hotel in Orlando Florida. Construction is still going on but was not an issue. Even the construction people we met were friendly. The staff was very friendly at the hotel and seen to our every need. Food was quality meals and the servers were excellent. People complain about... More

We stayed here in October 2013, before construction really got into full swing. We stayed on the third floor of the Rarotonga building, which was great - we were close to the Great Ceremonial House for food/Magic Kingdom monorail and it was a short walk to the Transportation & Ticket Center, which was GREAT for catching the monorail direct to...

this is a great hotel for a number of reasons, but the construction could make you rethink it for now. Pros: On the monorail system and it's proximity to ticket and transportation makes it the best location in my view. We had a great room. the fireworks and electric parade were visible from the room, which was great. They have... More

My husband, 7 year old niece and I stayed here the first week of July. I previously stayed for a night in April and loved it so I booked again, mainly for the convenience and location to the Magic Kingdom and Transportation and Ticket Center. This was my niece's first visit! :) I still can't give the Polynesian 5 stars... More

This is a great resort to stay in when it's the middle of summer and hot! It's a short walk to the monorail and most of it is covered, keeping you out of the sun until you reach the Magic Kingdom. My family rented a pontoon boat and cruised around the lagoon. Very fun! The rooms at the Polynesian are... More

We stayed here on an extended hour park day, we were allowed to ride rides in Magic Kingdom from 1 to 3 am, after the park closed at 1. We watched the fireworks from the beach area and we could see the display above the castle and to the side, where a more elaborate display was held in conjunction with... More

we have stayed at this hotel at WDW many times in the past, and always look forward to staying here. the staff is always wonderful and the check in is always smooth. The hotel is, in my opinion, one of the best ones to stay at when visiting WDW fro vacation. Transportation is always close and handy, no matter what... More

First - let's get the elephant in the room out of the way. Yes - they are undergoing construction but that did not deter in any way our experience. We stayed in Aotearoa with a view of the lagoon. It was quiet. If we hadn't run into people occasionally in the hallways, we would not had known anyone else was... More

How can you tell you are in a Disney Resort? I mean beside the exaggerated prices on your Receipts? The meaning of this is that we agreed for the Disney price as we expected a WOW effect. We did not get it. The room was a standard Hotel room, unless the wristband on your hand to open the door with... More
