Quiet and secluded, with lovely water views from most buildings, this is a costly hotel that may be worth every penny. It was for me. The beach overlooking the lagoon stays busy at night when families gather to watch fireworks, from beach towel or lounge chair. It's wonderful. The pool complex stays open late, adding another layer to the evening... More

We are Disney veterans, having been there at least 50 times. We love the quality we get with Disney, and we love their resorts. My husband and I went for a quick long weekend getaway to meet some friends and celebrate my birthday. We knew in advance that the Polynesian is under construction, so we expected that. The recently redone... More

This is a great hotel if you are on a budget, but want something a little more than the usual. Of the three "monorail" hotels on the pod, this is the "midgrade" hotel. (see my other reviews for the Grand Floridian and the Contemporary). This hotel has a pacific theme...it used to have a "jungle" area in the middle, but... More

As a regular visitor to Walt Disney World I have always loved the Polynesian. I've stayed in every resort and there has always been something special about the Polynesian: the convenience of the monorail, a short walk to the Epcot monorail, beautiful grounds and pool, great food, an incredible fun and relaxing atmosphere, one of the original resorts with the...

Love the location room was nice but man oh man was the hotel crowded. You could not move in the food court,the lobby or the pool more than once there were no seats at the pool. Strollers were left in the hallways so it made it difficult to get to your room. We have stayed at many a Disney hotel... More

My family and I took a quick trip to Disney and stayed at the Polynesian Resort. We were so excited and couldn't wait. This would be our second stay and was excited to return. It didn't really meet our expectations the second time around. Everything we did required too much waiting. We waited to be seated at the restaurants, we... More

When I booked 2 nights at the Poly in the new DVC studios I was really excited. I had done a tour of the rooms and the properties before they were finished and was really looking forward to staying here. Unfortunately my expectations were a bit higher than the reality. The resort is still under fairly major construction and while... More

We went on a trip to WDW and decided to get married there after we booked it. We decided that since we'd be getting married at the Polynesian we'd spend our wedding night there. The resort is officially our favorite resort. The theming was so relaxing and beautiful. We could see the castle from our room! The bed was comfortable... More

1st time at the Poly with a family of 4. We debated switching because of the construction works but things seemed to have improved, according to reviews, by the time we visited in early August. Sadly the whole experience was a real disappointment. It felt as if we were in the middle of a constant flow of guests in all... More

Managed to fit 2 adults and 3 kids comfortably into a standard room. 2 of our kids slept on a sofa bed and the other on a very cute little bed that folds out below the TV, with pictures of Lilo and Stitch on the wall. Strangely enough our standard room had 2 separate bathrooms! The resort is nicely spread... More
