Disney Polynesian Deluxe Resort

Tranquil beauty awaits by the shores of the South Pacific, but wait, what is that across the water? The Magic Kingdom is seen from the shores of the Polynesian Resort at Disney World. Lush tropical plants with gorgeous flowers surround you from the entrance to the quiet garden areas. White-sand beaches from the Seven Seas Lagoon make you feel as if you are on an island surrounded by the ocean in the South Pacific. One of the first Resorts created at Disney World, the Polynesian Resort has great views of the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom every night. Theming is everything, and the Polynesian Resort takes you to the Islands without having to take a lengthy trip to get there.

Hawaiian Style Rooms

Multiple buildings, created to look like a Tahitian Assembly Lodge, are placed around the Disney Polynesian Resort which houses a total of 847 rooms. Accommodations are decorated with vibrant, earthy tones offering a feeling that you are staying on one of the South Pacific islands. Continuing to study the detail, notice subtle decorations and items all around the rooms that make the island come out. Things such as carvings on the furniture, the details in the lighting fixtures, and even the fabrics used in the furniture and the carpets are designed to give you a feeling of island living. Most of the Standard rooms are the same size and will accommodate up to 5 people. If privacy is important, there are several 1 Bedroom Suites that also sleep up to 5, but the bedroom area is in a separate room from the Living space. On the upper floors overlooking the Lagoon, each of the rooms have a very nice balcony to enjoy viewing the landscape and all of the fun things going on around the Disney Polynesian Resort.

The Spectacular Views

The views are truly striking and not surprisingly, choosing the right view for your room is one of the more important decisions to make when booking your stay. Many varieties of living space are available to you during your stay with standard hotel type of rooms or a one bedroom suite, but either way, you go, consider the view you would like to have. If you are a Disney Club Member, some of the rooms offer more for those who have these privileges.

Disney Polynesian Village Resort Reviews


Choose the Disney Polynesian Resort if you want to feel like you are in one of the Hawaiian Islands. What great fun we had with our family. The Disney MyExperience App made check-in a breeze. Once we arrived, the flowing Palms and vibrant colors of the flowers made us feel like we were on a true island getaway. Opting for the Club Level room, even though it was a little more expensive, was well worth it for what we got. The kids loved the pool having a towering volcano backdrop and a big water slide. Our littlest one was having her splashing fun at the kids splash park. It was fun taking the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.


For the most part, guests have a lot of good things to say about the Disney Polynesian however there are a few complaints along the way. One of the main concerns discussed is that the resort could really use some updating to get to the Deluxe Resort status like the Grand Floridian or the Wilderness Lodge. Some discuss the worn carpets and outdated rooms. The cost is also talked about in many places. This is one of the top Disney Resorts though, on the Monorail line and across from the Magic Kingdom.
