Recently my daughter and I stayed at the Walt Disney World Polynesian Resort for a few nights.
When you arrive, you’re greeted with tropical plants and water falls both outside and in. (You can see in video below).
Everyone from the bell hops to reservation check in and room service are all polite, happy and greet you with “Aloha” everywhere you go.
There are two pools at the resort as well…a “volcano” one which has a water slide and is heated featuring beach entry into it.
If you want to go for a jog or just walk and enjoy the scenery there are paths throughout the resort.
To get to the theme parks, you have a choice of the Monorail (which stops at the Disney Polynesian Resort) so all you have to do is walk out of your room, go to the platform and you’ll be in Magic Kingdom moments later. You can also catch a boat over to the theme park too.
Depending on which end of the resort you are staying in, you may be within walking distance to the Ferry that transports you to Magic Kingdom or the main ticket sales center for the monorail.
We had a lake view room which gave us view of Magic Kingdom. (You can see it in the video below)
Cinderella’s Castle and Space Mountain could be seen across the lake.
(except early in morning when the lake was covered with fog!)
The Kona Cafe (which also offers room service) had yummmy Pan-asian noodles and a coconut almond crusted chicken that my daughter enjoyed.
There are countless things to do while staying at The Polynesian Resort.
Below is video of a few of the outdoor tropical falls, kids activity and the room, lake view.
