I have stayed at several Disney properties with my family and we were excited to stay at the Polynesian Resort..........huge let down. The check in process was rather rushed...the woman basically said here is room location and did not explain any of the amenities or things at the resort. She did not even tell us where guest laundry was, shows...

I've been to Walt Disney World a number of times over the past few years and this is my first stay at a true Deluxe resort at WDW (I've stayed at The Disneyland Hotel at DLR, which I will compare to below). This may be a bit confusing, but I have stayed at the Polynesian Resort before, but in the...

This is quite an expensive hotel to stay at, so we had very high expectations for the price we were paying.. I can tell you that it definitely did not disappoint!! What a fantastic resort! Our room was lovely and spacious (we had the standard room), the resort grounds are stunning - well managed and clean. All members of staff...

I loved it. We have a 2 1/2 year old son and I've found a rekindled love of Disney. We live only about 90 mins from Disney World so we are lucky that we can drive over easily whenever we want. We used Chase Ultimate Rewards to book two nights at the Polynesian and were not disappointed. We got an...

We had a very large lake view room, by Disney standards the room and bathroom are huge. The food was O.K, but even the quick food breakfast were just not as good as other Disney hotels. The signature dining food was also just OK. The location with water taxi, monorail was excellent for the parks.

We have stayed here a number of times and love it! The two things we love most about it are the pool and the Ohana restaurant. The pool has an awesome volcano slide that I believe they recently remodeled. The Ohana restaurant is our favorite place to eat on the entire Disney property. It has a unique serving style where...

Definitely lives up to it's name. It really felt like you were in Hawaii. The view of the park was great. The view of the boat parade was fantastic. Food selections were very limited if you were not a fan of Asian, buffet or luau.

2 families booked rooms traveling together to Disneyworld for 3 nights. We wanted to be on the monorail, close to the parks. Check. We wanted some place with a pool. Check. We wanted nice rooms. Not quite check. They were clean, but very dated. Looks like little has changed since the 70s and the rooms had a funny smell (all...

Have visited Disney World at least 10 times over the years and have stayed at the Polynesian several times. Beautiful resort, rooms and staff. Great to be able to come and go to the parks on the property. Also early admission. Can't beat staying here

We have been DVC members since 1997 and enjoy staying at different hotels. We were very excited to stay at the Polynesian since DVC rooms were available. We received our room number on the app, so proceeded directly to the room. My band worked to get us into the room, but my husbands did not. Great view of the parking...

There is a queen bed a queen pull out and a twin bed in wall like Murphy bed. It will be fine for all you with two areas to bath and only one toilet. But there is a closet and trunk so you will have room for luggage but I didn't see much draw space. That's the only thing missing. The terrace has two chairs and a small table. Any more questions just ask

Yes it's very expensive. I said in my review you can't put a price on the convenience of the location. With that being said I've done Disney twice in my life, last year and this year. Same for my husband and children. I don't plan on going back for a very long time so to spend that kind of money to give my kids the best experience didn't bother me. Disney cost me more than what I would spend at a high end all inclusive resort. Next year I'm going all inclusive!

Always try to make reservations. You can always cancel by midnight the day before for no fee. We make reservations for what we definitely want and leave some days open and if we are able to get in on an earlier date, then you can change things around

We didn't get one when we were there March 1 2017. We were sent a text message saying our room was ready and we could use our magic bands to access the room. Never went to the front desk. In a way, that's really efficient. But I have to say I miss the personal touch a little---but I could have gone to front desk to check in too if I wanted.
