I just returned from a WDW vacation and I was really impressed with the Polynesian Resort. The lush tropical setting really made me feel as if I was in Hawaii rather than Disney. The rooms are very clean and impressive. The plush beds and large flat screen TV are wonderful after a long day at the parks. The restaurant Ohana... More

My family and I stayed at the Polynesian for 6 nights, 5/3/08 - 5/9/08. I booked this room via AAA Travel Services for the cost of $399.00 per night. For spending almost four hundred dollars a night, I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. There was mildew almost everywhere in the bathroom, mold all around the air-conditioning unit, squeaky beds,... More

We thought we'd splurge and stay on property. I love Polynesian themes, so stayed there. I was absolutely delighted on entering the lobby...genuine Disney-Polynesia!! We were excited as could be to see our rooms...and found....Motel 6...for the price we paid...and a LONG walk to the main lobby (who knew?) How disappointing. (Next time we tried the Grand Floridian and were... More

Just returned from a Tues-Sun stay. Everything went great. Smooth check-in room - wasn't ready as we were early but they got it ready quickly and we got adjoining rooms per our request. We had great views of the gardens, the rooms were quiet and the beds very comfortable. Ground level is great b/c the kids could play outside the... More

My family & I just got back from a 6 night trip to Disney & stayed @ the Polynesian & I would go back in an instant. Everyone was very accommodating. The room was a nice size for 3 adults & 2 small children. The monorail service was excellent ( especially for small children). We were in Magical Kingdom in... More

The stay was quite pleasant and quite uneventful, except for terrible customer service at the Disney Magical Express shuttle and billing. Yea~ that lady just barked orders at everyone: "Next time please open your Magical Express reservation to the BARCODE!" I must say it was shocking when I had done case-studies at school about how "friendly" you had to be... More

We just returned from an amazing week at WDW. We decided on the Poly because we had our 4 year old niece and wanted monorail access to MK. We paid $399 plus tax per night in April. While this is pricey, I wouldn't think twice in booking again if we had the little one with us. The ease of walking... More

My family and I just got back from a 3 night stay and we won't be coming back. We splurged and spent the extra money ($600 plus) a night for a Magic Kingdom view. The fireworks were amazing to see, but that's about the only plus to these rooms. The rooms were very small for suites. The amenities are old... More

We (2 boys 7 & 10, husband & myself) stayed in a Garden View room in the Tuvalu building for 8 days ending April 13th. The grounds are very beautiful and reminded us a lot of our trip to Hawaii. The kids pool which includes a volcano spouting smoke and a water slide was very enjoyable for my sons and... More

My daughter and I visited WDW 2 weeks before Easter and stayed at the Poly. This was a wonderful mother/daughter trip. We have stayed here before, but this was our first visit since the rooms were rehabbed. We loved it!! The rooms are very big and now each room has a flat screen tv and a fridge. The rooms comfortably... More
