April 2015 visit-Great place to stay-so close to Magic Kingdom. Yes, sections were under construction but didn't bug us a bit while sipping a dole whip at the Lava Pool-still enjoyed all the ammenities at the pool. Steps from the pool to the beach. Watched the Fireworks while on the beach. Liked the lobby decor and all the same shops... More

Took the family on Disney vacation staying at the Polynesian Resort. Despite recent renovations it still appears dated. Staff and location were excellent. The Disney experience is loosing some of its magic.....very expensive and not a lot of new innovation.

We are vacation club members and couldn't wait to stay in the new Polynesian villas, and it totally lived up to our expectations. Yes, they are still under construction but they were very clear up front this was going on. Plus since the main pool was still under construction they gave us a free week at Typhoon Lagoon. Families will... More

Love this hotel. Did not stay here but visited. I love the new lobby. I know the old time Disney fans were upset about how the old lobby was being torn down. I think this place needed remodeling and a face lift. The lobby is nice and open now and really looks modern and welcoming. The new Disney vacation club... More

The Disney Vacation Club has really spoiled what once was one of my favorite places on earth. They have taken up the best longhouse and the bungalows completely destroy the view. You can no longer see the castle across the lake and only half of the light show is visible. I was very disappointed to say the least. However, when... More

I'm just leaving today with my husband, 4 yr old daughter , and 1.5 yr old son. There's not much to do here for kids. The monorail wasn't working one day (which isn't the hotels fault) however we requested a late checkout at check in and they refused it to us. We thought they could be more accommodating bc of...

Really enjoyed the trip but next time as just a couple another place would be better. Some said that not changing the bed with clean clean sheets is standard now to conserve but when your outside for 8+ hours and come back to the same sheets with yesterday's sweat it's not that appealing. At least give us a little note... More

Whilst we were waiting to be called for our Ohana diner reservation we decided to sit at the bar in the Tambu lounge. Well considering we were at the Polynesian resort the only thing we could really try was the cocktails. We both ordered a Glow Tinni which was really nice & not too strong. Then we both had an...

I have only stayed at this resort once or twice, but have come for dinner many, many times. The rooms are very spacious, and even the standard rooms have a good view. The resort is linked on the resort monorail with a short trip to Magic Kingdom with one stop at Grand Floridian. If you wish to go to Epcot... More
