As frequest Disney goers- we like to stay at a different resort each time we stay. The Polynesian is probably our favorite deluxe style resort. We generally stay during the Holiday time when we are visiting at a more slower pace so we can enjoy the hotel. If you can, stay in the Samoa building, it offers a great view... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Polynesian and were pleased with everything but the service. We arrived late at night because of airline delays but found no one at the hotel ready to check us in. The kids were exhausted from the trip and there was no one to help us with luggage, which was even more of a problem... More

Prior to this visit to Disneyworld, we had stayed only at value resorts, figuring that you spend so little time in your room. After some stressful transportation issues last time we decided to upgrade to a luxury resort. We chose the Polynesian because it is on the monorail. However - the best part about it is how close it is... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Polynesian at Disneyworld late Sep '09. The grounds were beautiful and well kept up. The room was great - large room with nice sized bathroom and patio with garden view. When we checked in, we were told the building we requested was not available (we wanted to be close to the family pool), but... More

The service & staff were exceptional - the maid accidentally took our son's bathing suit w/the towels & Disney immediately replaced it with a brand new bathing suit from the store in the lobby (we didn't even have to tell the management - the maid did!) They actually have staff from the Polynesian Islands that work at the resort which... More

We had heard a lot of great things about the Polynesian, so we had high expectations going in, and we were not disappointed!!! The location is so conventient - a monorail or boat ride away to the Magic Kingdom and a monorail away from Epcot! Being able to see Cinderella's Castle, the fireworks, and the electric light parade from the... More

My mother and I had never been to Disney before (I am 32) so we decided to go all out and stay at the Polynesian based on the recommendations of friends. The Ceremonial House was just beautiful. Room: The room was spacious and included a fridge which came in very handy. The bathroom was very nice and clean. We were... More

Well, she did it again! Carol at the Polynesian was wonderful AGAIN! But this time, she had help! She was busy with another guest when we arrived, so David helped us get checked-in. He was GREAT to work with! Very friendly and helpful! We consider ourselves a "tropical" family so the Polynesian is usually our first choice when it comes... More
