5 (or more) Reasons To Love Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Disney's Polynesian was one of the two original Walt Disney World Hotels and it continues to be a perennial fan favorite. Though refurbs and make-overs there are some things the "Poly" has always done better than anywhere else. I thank the Aloha Spirit that permeates the atmosphere and greats every guest to this tropical paradise. The resort is currently undergoing a multi-year re-imagining - the largest transformation since it's 1985 additions. In addition to the renovation of its guest rooms, feature pool and its centerpiece Great Ceremonial House, the entire resort will once again take its original name Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Hotel. This started out to be just 5 reasons, but I had a hard time narrowing down all the things to love.





Location & Transportation - You just can't get a whole lot closer to the Magic Kingdom. This property sits across the Seven Seas Lagoon from Adventureland and adjacent to the Transportation and Ticket Center. It's at the hub of all things Disney and one of the three resorts that gets its own stop on the Magic Kingdom's Monorail Line. The central location offers guests a broad selection of transportation options to get you where you're going fast from the heart of the magic.

Landscaping - Of all the Walt Disney World Resorts, the Polynesian has always been the one that I find most conveys its theme. Lush tropical foliage, walkways lined in volcanic rock and fiery torches, clear pools of water, bubbling streams and cascading falls. Tikis watch over guests bringing good fortune to travelers and transporting them to another time and place - twilight is magical.

Restaurants & Lounges - Do I have to chose just one? This category could take up 3 or 4 spots on this list easily. Eating at the Polynesian is always on my advanced dining reservations list, and a Lapu Lapu at the bar kicks off my monorail crawl. For breakfast, Kona Cafe is home to the famous Tonga Toast, Macadamia nut pancakes, and rich Kona coffee. At dinner time my family heads over to 'Ohana for a family style meal with a tropical flair. The bread pudding dessert is enough in itself to bring my husband.

When the current construction is complete the Polynesian will be home to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto - based on the popular themed lounge at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, Calif. Trader Sam's fun and adventurous highly-themed lounge featuring tiki cocktails and Polynesia-themed small plates. atmosphere will only make the reasons to stop by the "Poly" for dinner and drinks a must. Check out what the Disney Food Blog has to say about it.

Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show - This celebration of the spirit of aloha creates a fun an festive night out with south pacific dancers, drummers and Auntie Wini, hosting a fun filled luau. The open-air theater in Luau Cove, plays host to this enthralling dinner show highlighting traditions from Polynesia, including dances from Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand and Hawaii. The verdict on the value of this show can be split amongst guests, but I relish in the kitsch of it all.

The Cast Members- A high level of service is always called for at Disney's Deluxe Resorts, but the friendly cast at the Polynesian has gone above and beyond expectations for me more times than I can count. I believe that it all comes back to the way of Aloha. Not only do the cultural ambassadors at this resort offer warmth, joy in the sharing of life with south pacific traditions such as lei making, the hula or torch lighting; but all of the cast members jobs always seem to be done with a little extra care too.

It's difficult to limit the reasons we love the "Poly" to just 5 choices, even now and when the renovations are completed there will simply be a whole lot more! Disney Vacation Club Villas are being added to the Polynesian Village, The Neverland Club is being rethemed, some restaurants are getting facelifts, there's speculation of another pool area, and according to the tikiman website surprises in store at the old Tangaroa Terrace building.

I think that Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Hotel will continue to be one of the most loved Disney resorts far into the future. Are you a fan of Disney's Polynesian? Leave a comment and let us know what your 5 reasons to stay here are!
