Although this is one of the oldest resort at Disney World there are many good reasons to stay there. The rooms are really large - much larger than the other hotels. You have the most options for transportation...The monorail, the ferry to the Magic Kingdom, buses from the Transportation center to just about anywhere. The transportation center is just steps...

Rooms are great - clean, sizable, etc. Location is great - monorail to Magic Kingdom is outside lobby (second floor) and buses elsewhere are 30 paces to the left of the entrance. This place didn't grab us however. I suppose if you had Stich&Lilo fans this place would be intriguing - but we've been to Hawaii and this place is... More

Although we are Disney veterans, this was our first stay at the Polynesian. We were thrilled on checkin to be informed we were chosen family of the day, complete with an upgrade for our entire stay to Club Level with theme park view! What could be more magical? We found our room spacious, clean, and comfortable. The view was great.... More

Stayed at Polynesian with two toddlers (age 3) and three adults. From the perspective of making a brief holiday trip easy for parents and grandparents with small children, this hotel has it all. The logistics of air travel were as smooth as silk: the Disney magical express delivered us to the hotel front door, enabled us to check our bags... More

So we booked the Polynesian Resort for a quick family vacation weekend getaway. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel, which is one of the Disney originals never felt old or outdated. It really is a nice hotel. The staff were true to Disney fashion always friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious enough for us and the pool was... More

The best thing Polynesian Resort is its location and the convenience of getting around especially with young children. The mono rail and bus service is first rate. The resort is old but the rooms are large and comfortable. We were able to get adjoining rooms with my daughter and grandchildren. This worked out extremely well as we were able to... More

We love the Polynesian. It is definitely the most convenient hotel on the property with easy access to the resort monorail, excellent bus service to other parks and a short walk to the TTC for a trip to Epcot. The rooms are larger than most and can easily fit us and our two teenagers. We like the one site restaurants... More

The positive - We love Disney and the location was great ( just a quick boat ride to Magic Kingdom). WE loved Ohana restaurant and the Dole Whips ! The resort has a wonderful Hawaiian tropical feel. The negative - small dark gloomy rooms. I guess with the age of the resort it should be expected but we found a... More

This is one of the oldest resorts at WDW. It was so well planned out that even after 40 years it's a beautiful and perfect resort. One of the best meals served in the whole park is the Ohana dinner. It's an all you can eat, multi-course meal, that includes shrimp, beef, turkey and pork. They continually come to your... More
