Disney's Polynesian Resort
- What's Included
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 servers come around with different foods and you take however much of it you want. We always make a reservation there even if we are staying at another hotel. Another great thing about the polynesian is that it is on the monorail system which makes it super easy to get to the magic kingdom and Epcot. We have also been to Hawaii many times and it truly feels like you are on the islands when you are staying at Disney's Polynesian resort.
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 of them). Good parts were the location, view of the fireworks at night, pool was fun for kids (lots of chlorine). Service was good. Bad parts were rooms (beware - not queen beds - only doubles), and the food was horrible. We ate at 3 different restaurants on property. Breakfast was pretty awful.
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 lot, by the way. The room was a beautiful room, with a very nice murphy bed for a fifth guest. The second shower and sink would be great if we had 4-5 people in the room, so I commend Disney for adding they extra shower. Certainly helps when trying to get everyone out the door at the same time.We tried to make our way to the front desk to get my husband's band to work. We got lost. We did have a change in people on the reservation, so they were not able to make that happen. He had to have a key card, however, he could only use it for the room and not for charging or park tickets. When we were at the front desk, there was no welcome home, no lei's and the cast member was somewhat standoffish, annoyed that we had this issue. We asked for a late checkout since we were not spending time at the parks and wanted to enjoy the resort. We were told that because we were not paying guests, we had to leave at 11. Not paying guests? Owning a timeshare for 20 years doesn't count for anything? We asked to speak to a supervisor, and was told one would call us back. We went to the pool because we didn't have a whole lot of time and were back in our room at 10:30 to shower and get ready to leave. We then got a message saying it was ok to stay until 1. A little too late. We were already showered and ready to go. Quite frustrating, especially because it was a Sat night, so we paid a premium in points. Getting sooo disappointed with Disney. I wish it weren't so.
