4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The new kid's pool here is awesome! The monorail to the Magic Kingdom saves a lot of transportation time. Captain Cook's is our favorite quick service. I say just very good because a lot of the common areas still look very 70's despite the updates. Also, there is a lot of foot traffic here with all the dinner options.

My daughter and I stayed at the Polynesian over the Memorial Day weekend and it was a wonderful vacation. The hotel rooms have been upgraded as well as the pool and they are beautiful. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Disney. The location was perfect. We rented a car for the weekend and parked it at the... More

Disney's Polynesian Resort is a great place to stay on Disney property. It is located on the main monorail line and within walking distance of the Ticket & Transportation Center. There are a million ways to get anywhere in Disneyworld, so be sure to ask the concierge for the most efficient route. (Alas, a cab is almost always the fastest... More

After discovering the Polynesian, we have not stayed at another resort. Upon arrival, the interior water feature instantly told us we were on vacation and the kids could not wait to see the ducks playing in the water stream just outside. We were shocked and saddened to see them both gone. We were told the larger one was removed to... More

Fab hotel, staff are brilliant. Rooms were spot on and views of the magic kingdom were lovely. Expensive but well worth it. Loved the beach near by and such a good location to get to Magic Kingdom, can walk, get boat or monorail. Pool is beautiful! Was second to none to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks while swimming in the... More

Although a lot of construction work in progress at the time we were there and not100% clean, this resorthas nice accomodations and monorail/WDW or boat service is a must. Perfect for families travelling with children. Good restaurant and pool/beach area. Also a nice room view of the Magic Kingdom.

We visit Disney World a lot. So we think we know a few tricks. The Polynesian blew us away this time with how much fun we had. We planned three days, and made sure one was at the Magic Kingdom and one at EPCOT since we were on the monorail (no bus rides this time!), we ate off the dining... More

While watching fireworks on the beach at the polynesian my children found numerous rusty nail while playing in the sand. I brought it to the attention of the front desk and they were apologetic,but it does not excuse the fact of the poor quality of construction clean up. Having multiple state certifications and working for many municipalities and utilities throughout... More

Stayed here with our two boys 4 and 5 in December of 2014. We chose the Polynesian because of the tropical ambiance and its location on the monorail and boat service to select parks (Magic Kingdom and Epcot). Didn't have any issues with either modes of transport as in previous reviews. As per previous reviews we were expecting the construction... More

I am a Disney Vacation Club owner and just finished staying in the NEW Polynesian DVC villas. Building name was Moorea and we had a great view of the Magic Kingdom every morning, noon and night. Heard a lot of stories leading up to this trip and many of them were nightmarish but let me tell you my trip here... More
