Disney’s Polynesian Resort

It began operation on October 1, 1971 as one of Walt Disney World Resort’s first two on-site hotels.  It’s part of the original plan that Walt himself designed.

Did you know…

John Lennon signed the paperwork that officially broke up the Beatles at the Polynesian Resort on December 29, 1974.

The resort is located between the Transportation and Ticket Center and the Grand Floridian. It’s just across Seven Seas Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom. The Magic Kingdom monorail runs right through it, and it’s a short walk to the Epcot monorail.

I think the Polynesian is one of Disney’s most iconic resort hotels. The rooms are spacious and clean, the facility is beautifully decorated and very easy to find your way around.  It’s always magical to step into the lush tropical forest in the lobby and very convenient to take the monorail to the parks.

With 11 2-story and 3-story village longhouses that flank the Great Ceremonial House—built to resemble a royal Tahitian assembly lodge—the Resort has 847 luxurious rooms, decorated with rich tropical colors and furnished in traditional bamboo and rattan. It really has the polynesian feel. It is one of my favorite resorts on property.

  1. I always thought I would like the Polynesian the best, or the Animal Kingdom hotel (can’t remember the name right off the bat).
    Is the Polynesian expensive?? Have you seen the Contemporary yet? I heard it needs updating, although it may have already been since I have been out of the “biz” for so long. LOL.

  2. I like them both. The contemporary not so much and it does need a rehab. I like the more themed properties. I do have pics though I will post those shortly also. And I will make a visit to Animal Kingdom also 🙂
