Recent guest reviews

Excellent location. Great restaurants and amenities.

Beautiful hotel it is the best hotel I’ve stayed at at Disney. Wonderful ambience and the rooms and beds are very comfortable and roomy.

A wonderful stay to end our honeymoon. We had a club level room and loved spending time at the resort pool. Room was large and cast members were friendly. We had a great stay!

I have stayed here many times . I enjoy the Polynesian because of its Island feel. It is so convenient to me it is worth the money.

Beautiful hotel! Worse bed I ever slept on. Tried to reach the front desk and housekeeping for over 45 minutes before I was able to get in contact with someone.

I wanted to take my children to Not So Scary Halloween. I was able to book this room and purchase tickets to the evening party. We were so pleasantly surprised how nice and large the room was and so convenient to get to the Magic Kingdom. It was perfect for our get away. I will return to this resort as of now it is my new favorite resort. Thank you Disney World for helping me make memories with my small children.

My son got sick and the staff was so accommodating that my husband who had proclaimed he'd never come back is now planning our next stay.

Excellent choice close to Magic Kingdom with fabulous pools. Only complaint would be mediocre food.

Staff was friendly and helpful. We loved that this hotel was on the monorail with easy ride to the Magic Kingdom. Pool is great for kids with play area for small kids and a water slide for older ones. Hotel is very clean and well maintained. We will definitely come back.

I used to love going to the Polynesian Hotel. Sadly it is no longer what it used to be. At best a Holiday Inn is the way my daughter discribed it. Gone are the cute little Disney logo soaps and towels. Everything was so run down. For the astronomical price we paid, I could have stayed at the Ritz Carlton in a suite! This was my last time. I won't be coming back.

We checked into Disney's Polynesian Resort before the 3:00 PM check-in time, and our room was ready. There was no line to wait in at registration, however the process took well over 30 minutes due to technical difficulties with their new reservation system. The Cast Member helping us apologized and let us know they went live with the new system that week, however she was trained on the system over three weeks ago, and she was already rusty. The room was spacious, clean and quiet, however for a room that costs $300+ per night, I would expect an alarm clock and a couple bottles of water. I booked this trip at the last minute, so I didn't have time to do all the research to learn the do's and don'ts for Disney...however it would have been helpful if they told us upon check-in that reservations are almost required to eat at any sit down restaurant (on the property or in the park). On our first day we arrived for breakfast, which we knew we'd probably have to wait, but only to be turned away because we didn't have a reservation. Same went for another restaurant we tried eating at for lunch inside Magic Kingdom. We quickly learned our lesson and booked reservations for the next day through the Disney app. Overall, it was a fun trip and the staff was friendly.

Great location, a fun laid back, Island family vibe. Simple , Simple acess to the Magic Kingdom.

Hotel was great. Rooms were clean, close to the monorail, good food at the restaurants. But, typical of any Disney Hotel, this place is really starting to show its age. My family enjoyed our stay, the staff was awesome and the proximity to the park(s) could not be beat. Mahalo Disney's Polynesian Village Resort...You made a once in a lifetime family trip great.

We had a great trip and a wonderful stay. Classic Disney hotel

we enjoyed our stay here. The club room was well stocked. Only downside was the monorail wasn't running all the time.

The hotel is in a great location, right off the monorail, but the staff was not as friendly as other Disney hotels.

We had another wonderful trip to Disney. However, the Polynesian did not live up to expectations. The pool and new children's area was amazing. The staff at the pool bar was also amazing. The rooms were not. Air-conditioning didn't work well, cleanliness was pitiful in the rooms. Managers were told but nothing happened during our stay. After we returned home, I did contact guest services and did receive a phone call asking for input, which I very much appreciated.

First time staying at a deluxe property on site. It was awesome and I would recommend it! Check-in with Mollie was easy. She was very helpful and assisted us with setting up our magic bands. Room was great. Lots of room to move around. Loved having the sofa bed for extra room. This hotel is on the monorail and it is so easy and fast to get to Magic Kingdom. Also LOVED the fact that we could get a dole whip at anytime at this hotel! Would also recommend dining at Ohana, which is on site as this fabulous hotel.

The grounds and room was great, clean and had the Disney feel. The bungolow/sands area was lackluster but the location of the hotel cannot be beat. Aulani is definitely still miles better but the Polynesian is still an above average hotel

the rooms are very large and comfortable. There is some construction, but they try to make it as seamless as possible
