Review of Disney World Polynesian Village Resort

Polynesian reviewDisney’s Polynesian Village Resort is one of the best themed Disney World resorts. You’ll feel like you are in Hawaii or another Pacific island, which is perfect for Lilo and Stitch, who are prevalent at this resort. One of my earliest childhood Disney World memories are staying at this hotel, even though a lot has changed since then! In fact, the resort is currently going through a major renovation and is expected to be completed late in 2015. It’s still open though!

Here are the best features of the resort:

  • Located on the monorail system
  • Family-friendly dining, including the Ohana character dining (features Lilo & Stitch)
  • On-site child care
  • Boat service to the Magic Kingdom
  • Luau dinner shows with hula dancers, fire dancers, and all-you-can-eat buffet
  • One of the best theming of any Disney World Resort
  • Covers 39 acres of the Seven Seas Lagoon
  • Three white sand beaches and volleyball courts
  • Superb rainforest landscaping, both inside and out with dozens of tropical plant species
  • Near golf courses

There are a few drawbacks, but not many:

  • As a Deluxe resort, you’ll be spending at least $400+ per night
  • The refurbishments have some areas blocked off (will be done soon!)
  • No spa or fitness center
  • Shares bus transportation to Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, and water parks with other monorail resorts. Sometimes there’s a wait.
