Stayed at the Polynesian in the last week of August with hubby and two children. While the resort is nice enough its definately not a five star resort-more in the area of 3 stars. The best perk for staying at this resort is the Monorail service, quick and convenient. The room was nice and large for all of us, but... More

We just returned from our fabulous stay at the Polynesian. We arrived and a room was ready in a building we didn't want so we waited until one was ready. The room was spotless and remained that way for the entire week. We had towel animals daily from Mousekeeping. The view from our room in Fiji was fantastic. The pool... More

We spent 7 nights here and had a great time. We stayed in the Hawaii Building (concierge) with a great castle view. The location is great. The pool is great. We ate at all 3 restaurants and they had great food. The resort is spread out and it can be a walk to your room. You just have to be... More

We just returned from a 4 night vacation at the Polynesian. We booked this last minute so we did not have first choice as far as the hotel was concerned. I heard the Polynesian was revamped so we gave it a try. I was a bit disappointed with this hotel. I had many minor complaints but they all added up... More

We stayed at the Poly in the 80s and weren't impressed. After reading rave reviews recently, we decided to give it another chance-wrong move! The staff is indifferent. They didn't give us the right directions to our building-sent us to the oppspite side of the resort. There was a bra in the dresser, the bathroom wasn't clean. Captain Cooks has... More

The Polynesian Resort was awesome! At check-in, we were magically upgraded to Concierge and were immediately transported to the Hawaii building. Our room was on the Seven Seas Lagoon with a beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom. The kids enjoyed stepping outside right onto the beach and laying in the hammocks. They also loved the volcano pool. We all enjoyed... More

We traveled as a family of 6 (our kids are 6, 5, 4, 4) with my in laws from Sept. 17-23 to the Polynesian and had a great time. We had two adjoining rooms in the Tahiti but were upgraded to a Magic Kingdom View which was unbelievable. We were able to see fireworks every night along with the electric... More

I am a travel agent and have stayed at many deluxe hotels as well as many budget hotels in my lifetime. The Polynesian is an amazing resort and I would go back in a heartbeat!! I think some of the posters that have left poor reviews are just sticks-in-the-mud!!! Seriously, Polynesian is awesome. Upon arrival we were welcomed with Hawaiian... More
