We visited the Polynesian Hotel on the grounds of Walt Disney World in November. Although they have maintained this facility reasonably well in its many years of operation, we did have some issues with our stay. We did not realize that the Polynesian is situated in such a way to simulate the experience of island living. This means that the... More

We chose the Polynesian for the location and couldn't have been happier; after staying at the Animal Kingdom Resort two years ago (and having to deal exclusively with the buses), we were thrilled to have the monorail and ferry so conveniently located. We would never again stay at a place where we had to rely solely on the bus service;... More

We have stayed at the Polynesian 4 times now and have never been dissappointed. When we arrive, they greet us with Aloha, Welcome Home and a lai. The landscaping is gorgeous and the rooms with the Hawaiian decor are fantastic. The rooms are always clean and if you ever have any slight problem, they remedy it on the spot. My... More

My Family and I just returned from 8 days/7 nights from Disney World and the Polynesian. Over all, our stay was great. We go to Disney every 12 to 18 months and pick a different resort each time. This resort needless to say was awesome. Some may complain about a stain here or dirt there, HEY! It is a motel,... More

Still a very good hotel. I have stayed there 4 times now and overall it seems to be slipping a bit. They left a room service tray in the hall for almosy 18 hours one of the days. The bedding is getting old.

We visited Disney World in June, 2008. We booked one night at the Polynesian before we left on our cruise with the intent of spending the day at the hotel. We were thrilled we had done that. We were upgraded to the conceirge level, Hawaii House with a view of the lake and the castle. Our 4 year old was... More

I was very disappointed with this hotel. We stayed in the Tahiti complex of the hotel. The room was dirty. There was dust all over the headboard. The curtain liner was stained. The bottom part of the toilet (where it hinges to the floor) had dirt and urine stains. The shower curtain was stained with who knows what and had... More

The Polynesian was a great place to stay!!! The staff was very nice....every one of them. The food is awesome! The luau was such a wonderful show with exceptionally great tasting food. The "Captain's Cook" has awesome food as well....definitely try the double cheeseburger with homemade Polynesian chips as your side. For dessert, get the brownie. They have the best... More

Ok, I've stayed at a ton of hotels all of the world so I have a lot to compare this hotel to. The bottom line, however, is that Disney markets this hotel as a five star resort and it really is not. You are strictly paying for the luxury of being close to the magic kindgom and the monorails. The... More

We feel this is the best resort if you are going to focus on the Magic Kingdom. Unfortunately our observation is that during peak periods it tends to be overpriced and better value can be obtained elsewhere at Disney. Nonetheless it is a nice resort. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable. We easily fit 2 adults and 2 children... More
