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

The construction really did not bother me, however the hotel does need updating. Food was better than I had expected, although the service at lunch in the Kona Cafe was extremely slow!!! Need another bar in the hotel. Did like using the "band" rather than a key. Might be my fault, but never understand the dining plan until the last... More

We go to Disney World a lot and was looking forward to the Polynesian Resort for New Years. Checked out the Construction yesterday. There is Construction everywhere, looks like a war zone. The Hotel is at 30%. The construction has the majority of the beach off limits. They do not expect to finish all the construction until July or so... More

First let me state we did not stay at the Polynesian but across the street at Shades of Green. We had eaten at Sanaa and then decided to visit Downtown Disney. Well we ended up getting soaked in a downpour that caught us out in the open. We were heading back to SoG but the line for the bus to... More

FYI, I am a travel agent that specializes in Disney. The Polynesian Resorts has been under construction for months. I hope when you booked someone mentioned this to you. If not they were not educated on this. Always book with someone whether a travel agent, who spends hours studying and visiting the properties etc, many of the reservations people are... More
