    This was my first time staying at this hotel and probably won't be my last. I've stayed at other onsite hotels like the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Wilderness Lodge. The Pop Century is more expensive that those two, but the quality is maybe about the same. Actually I have to say I enjoyed the Wilderness Lodge more than this... More

    The Poly was not my first choice for this trip. I mean, we know it's a construction zone right now and I must be honest...the resort, while convenient and the best resort viewing for Wishes, just never appealed to me. Still, it was the only deluxe offering a room discount for our dates...so I figure, why not? I mean, I've... More

    We stayed at the Polynesian Feb 21 thru the 28th. Overall we did have a great time and did enjoy our stay. However if you are looking for a perfect visit DO NOT STAY UNTIL ALL CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE! It is very noisy in spots and it absolutely does not have that tropical oasis feel that it did before the... More

    The Polynesian is my favorite resort on Disney property. It's premium location is easy to get to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. The monorail system is awesome! The grounds at the Polynesian make it feel as though you are somewhere tropical and we loved seeing the fireworks from Magic Kingdom right on the beach. It was also nice having the... More

    We were recently at Disneyworld for the Princess Run. We stayed at the Polynesian for the convenience of its being on the monorail. It is also a short walk to the transportation center. Our room was in one of the outer buildings. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. It contained a small refrigerator. The staff were all helpful... More

    just spent two nights at the Polynesian while we were at Disney. We were traveling as a family of 10 with two connecting rooms. We requested those rooms at booking and although there was a bit of a lag checking in and getting the rooms together it was great we were accommodated. The first night we asked for extra blankets...

    We booked a 3 night stay here Feb 22, 2015. You really think you are staying in a hotel in Hawaii. We arrived after 11pm and were presented with a live flower lea greeting.

    Construction did hinder our views and the walkways. Overall our experience was great. The lobby was upscale casual with a twist of tropical modern. The cast was very nice. The small pool was heated. Tuvalu was a fantastic spot for the 9:00 boat show and the 10:00 fireworks, worth every cent of he lagoon view upgrade. Both 'Ohana and Kona... More
