We just got back from a 4 night stay at this fantastic resort. Yes, there is construction going on but it's really not a huge deal. They are giving out free passes to Blizzard beach to make up for the main pool being closed. The pool that is still open is still very nice with incredibly warm water. Rooms are... More

Stayed at the Poly the week of August 5th. This is my second time staying here. Stayed in Tuvalu lagoon view room. We had a great view looking out towards the water. We were able to see the top half of the castle and watch the fireworks and water parade each night. Fantastic! The room was very clean and mouse... More

I recently stayed at the Polynesian Resort Club Level, Magic Kingdom facing room and thought it was fabulous. The food throughout the day was convenient and the food was pretty good. Mostly snack type items but good enough for a days calories while visiting the parks. At night adult beverages were available as well as other great drink choices. The... More

We knew going in that the Poly was under construction for the new DVC villas. And despite a few inconveniences, it was still a very comfortable stay. Disney did a nice job of blocking the view of the mess with temporary walls that were painted to match the decor and added photo op cut outs of Disney characters. But we... More

I didn't know what to expect since I didn't research this hotel at all (my co-worker chose it and I followed along). I arrived and was pleasantly surprised. It was almost like a Hawaiian experience (I say almost because nothing compares to being at the real thing). You are greeted everywhere with "Aloha" and when you arrive you are given... More

This hotel is undergoing extensive renovation. It will be fantastic when finished but at the moment it isn't fair to be paying top disney prices to stay here when there are so many other great disney hotels. Several areas are boarded up and there isn't really much of a disney feel and several facilities are closed.

We were here for a long weekend last month and had a pleasant experience. We have two small children and the proximity to Disney and the monorail was ideal. We knew about the renovations beforehand, so it wasn't a shock. I read some of the complaints before our stay, and frankly I think those are the type of people who... More

This hotel is great because it also has access to the monorails! I usually stay at the Contemporary, but sometimes it fills up. The tropical theme is cute, and the lush garden like landscape is a nice touch. I haven't used the pools, but the grounds are nice and the rooms are nice. Be careful staying in the garden rooms!...

It's a nice themed hotel but compared to the others I've stayed in the parks I found the layout complicated, maybe because it was under renovation on the main areas. It was raining at times so getting to and from the room was a hassle. The pool area is really nice with water slides and a great view of Magic... More

This hotel is really nice and service is great. It's right inside the Magic Kingdom which is an excellent choice to begin with. You can either use the monorail or ferry to get to and back from the Magic Kingdom. Also, you can use the monorail for Epcot as well. The only time you need to use the shuttle is... More
