I love this place!! I love the theming but the only downfall is that they didnt have a hot tub. The grounds are beautiful. I love to eat at Ohana and Kona for lunch or breakfast. We usually rent boats and drive around Bay Lake. The monorail access to the TTC makes this a perfect place for families with small... More

We booked the Poly back in February for our July trip. We knew nothing of the upcoming construction at the time. This was our first trip to DW and we wanted a resort that was nice and would make travel to the parks less hassle. We were willing to pay more for this. When we first arrived, a cast member... More

We love Disney and have been many many times. Last year we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge @ Concierge Level and the year before same level at Yacht Club. We usually stay at Wilderness Lodge because my teens have their own bed due to the bunk beds. So when I booked this hotel with Disney I was promised we would... More

During my first ever visit to Disney World, my family and I stayed here. IT WAS AMAZING!! The rooms were comfortable and clean, the pool is awesome, and the hotel itself is GORGEOUS! The restaurants- Ohana and the Kona Café- are delicious; I definitely recommend eating at both of them! The Polynesian is truly an exceptional resort, and I would... More

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
