    where is the best room location to stay when at the polynesian that is close to transportation? also, should I request an upper or lower level room with a 6 and 8 year old? will we be able to see the fireworks from a lower level room?

    Greetings, Tracey, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for your question regarding Disney's Polynesian Village Resort hotel Guest rooms.

    Imagine staying in a South Pacific setting amidst lush palm trees and authentic tropical decor being so close to Cinderella Castle. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is among Disney's Deluxe Resorts conveniently placed on the Resort Monorail line, minutes away from the pixie-dusted Magic Kingdom Park. You're so lucky to be planning a stay at this Disney Resort hotel where you'll bask in exclusive and convenient amenities!

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Guest Room buildings closest to Great Ceremonial House (main building and transportation) would be Tonga, Niue or Rarotonga. Fireworks viewing from these buildings on a lower floor would be very limited, if possible at all. The best buildings at this Resort hotel for the viewing of fireworks would definitely be any of the Lagoon View Buildings where the Guest Rooms actually face the Seven Seas Lagoon. Tracey, feel free to play around with the interactive map in the above-mentioned 'Guest Rooms' link to discover more about the layout of this Resort hotel to select the building which best suits your needs and preferences.

    Viewing fireworks from this Resort hotel can be enjoyed from the Lava Pool, or nearby on the sandy areas. Riding the Monorail during the fireworks is great fun and if you happen to be on a Boat Launch through Seven Seas Lagoon the views are spectacular.

    May I offer Disney's Planning for Kids online resource in preparation for your vacation.
