“O’hana” means family and that is exactly how they make you feel at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
On our last family trip to Disney in January of 2017, our family had the privilege to stay there. Upon arrival, we were greeted with leis. No matter how you choose to arrive at the resort (car, bus, taxi, etc), the décor makes you feel like you just stepped off of a boat onto one of the islands of the South Pacific. We were surrounded by amazing tropical foliage and rock formations. While we were on the property of the Polynesian, we had picturesque views of Bay Lake and a breathtaking view of Cinderella’s Castle. We loved our room. At 415 square feet, it is one of the largest rooms on Disney property and can sleep 5 in 2 queen beds and a day bed.
Some of the advantages to staying at this resort include: monorail transportation, some of the best dining on Disney property, exclusive kid-friendly activities-- including a supervised kids club so the adults can enjoy a special dinner (additional fee), and a “volcano-themed” swimming pool. The monorail gave us direct access to Magic Kingdom and the Transportation and Ticket Center, which will brought us to Epcot. While all Disney resorts provide transportation to the parks, the monorail is by far the most magical way to arrive.
A Place to Stay
During our family vacation, we enjoyed watching the fireworks from the beach. Our kids loved being in the pool and loved the slide and kids water play area. At their young age, they thought they were at a waterpark! We also enjoyed the quick-service restaurant, Capt. Cooks-it was great for late night snacks when we got back from the park. I loved the pulled pork nachos! Oh, and don’t forget my personal favorite feature- you can get Dole Whips right at the hotel! Because of all the amenities that Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has to offer, I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about staying in a Deluxe resort on Disney property!
