Rooms

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is the most popular hotel at Walt Disney World Resort. It even has unofficial fan clubs and events. Much has to do with nostalgia being one of the original hotels at Disney, opening in 1971. But it's also about location, location, location! It's perhaps the most conveniently located hotel, not only is it on the Magic Kingdom monorail line, but you can also walk over to the Epcot monorail.

Rooms are located in outer buildings known as longhouses behind the main lobby. The majority of the longhouses have 3 floors. First floor rooms have patios and third floor rooms have full balconies with seating for two. Most second floor rooms do not have a balconies. One of the most requested longhouses is Rarotonga, it's centrally located to the lobby, transportation and the pool. 

>> View Recommended Standard View Rooms at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Standard rooms are among the largest on Disney World property and are well appointed. Rich woods and an earth-tone color palette are beautiful, but make the rooms a bit dark.

Vanities are located inside the bathroom so it isn't possible to rotate people around when getting ready in the morning. Bathrooms are large and have been recently refurbished. 

Most standard rooms have two queen-size beds, or one king-size bed and a
day bed and can sleep up to 5 guests plus one child up to age 3 in a pack n' play.  Connecting rooms are available upon request but cannot be guaranteed. 

There are a limited number of suites at the Polynesian, tucked away in a one of longhouses. They are often occupied by celebrities and are some of the most costly rooms on Walt Disney World property.  

 

Club Level accommodations at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are considered to be the best at Walt Disney World. If you stay club level at the Polynesian, you'll receive personalized concierge service from a team of dedicated Cast Members even before you arrive. Perhaps most beneficial is the VIP lounge with continental breakfast, midday snacks and evening wine, hors d’oeuvres, cordials and desserts served daily. Club Level rooms are standard rooms but located in the Hawaii Longhouse. Garden View Club Level rooms overlook the lush, tropical  landscaping of the hotel. Also available, Lagoon View and Theme Park View which come at a higher cost. Garden View is fine for most -it mostly about access to the lounge anyway.

Pools

There are two heated pools with slides, whirlpools, interactive water feature, leisure pool, and poolside cabana rentals. Both pools are well themed to fit in with the South Seas theme of the resort and were recently refurbished where several improvements were made. There's also a health club, tennis, fishing, marina watercraft rental, arcade and recreation activities including Disney movies under the stars.
