First and formost I am in Corporate Management in the Hotel Industry . I work very hard at what I do and manage some of the best brands in the business. The hospitality industry is tough but so rewarding if you like to make people happy. When it is time for vacation I am so ready to finally be "The... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing. We arrived on August 4th 2009. Initially I was extreme displeased as I booked a club level room and was not treated as such. I was ushered inside to check into the hotel instead of my personalized check in. This guy at the counter was rude and extremely unhelpful. We found our way to the... More

My family and I had stayed at the Polynesian Resort in February 2006, and had a wonderful stay. Cast Members were great, and so was housekeeping. Our last stay before this present one was at the Yacht Club in December 2007. It was nice but we missed being at a monorail resort , so for this trip we decided to... More

I have always wanted to stay at the Polynesian since I was a little girl! It finally happened! I have stayed at several Disney properties, but the only other Disney Deluxe property was the Wilderness Lodge. We couldn't wait to stay at the Polynesian. However, so many weird and annoying things happened during our stay and it took way too... More

We have been to Disney 9 times and this is the first time at the Polynesian. We could not have been happier! We stayed in a room with 3 teenagers in the Figi building which was close to the Ceremonial House. Big rooms, clean and prompt service! The hallways were on the dark side and I didn't like the fact... More

Went to WDW with my children in October 2008, just before Halloween. We're thinking fo returning this year for a weekend visit and I remembered I hadn't reviewed this hotel. We stayed at the Polynesian and I completely agree with all the reviews that say if you can afford it, it is the best place to stay with kids. Not... More

We have stayed at the Polynesian for the last 3 years and we always love it! The lush greenery of this resort is so beautiful, you feel like you are in Hawaii (yes we have been there and its our favourite vacation spot). The rooms are a bit on the dark side, but are comfy and roomy. The MK view... More

Not that location should be the only factor when considering where to stay at WDW, but it must be at the top. And, for us it was. When you consider you'll have access to both MK monorail onsite and the TTC monorail within easy (yes EASY) walking distance there is no other comparable property. I suppose the closest rival would... More

This property is so large you need a golf cart to get anywhere. We booked a Magic Kingdom view room which was about a 1/4 mile from the main building, NOT HAPPY. You needed a pair of binoculars to see the Castle. When I found out the location of the room we decided to move to the Contemporary which was... More

We stayed in Rm# 1020 of the Tahiti building. It looked like it had not been really cleaned in a long time. Cob webs on the walls. DUST and lots of it on every surface not easily reached by the half hearted dailey housekeeping. MOLD all around the tub, a stopped up sink and broken faucet handles. When paying these... More
