    I am booking my first trip to Disney and have gotten lots of suggestions, but want to know what you think of the Polynesian Hotel?

    Hi, Alison!

    Oh, the Polynesian is fabulous on so many levels. From the minute you arrive, you'll appreciate the Resort looks - and feels - like a tropical paradise inside and out, from the lush landscaping around the longhouses to the gorgeous plants and fountains adorning the lobby.

    The rooms are spacious and bright, with two queen-sized beds and a daybed providing ample sleeping space. No in-room amenity is overlooked, including a flat-screen television, a refrigerator, and high-end toiletries.

    Kids and adults alike love the pool, which features a 120'-long volcano-themed waterslide,  Cast Members offer activities throughout the day, both poolside and in the water, for children, who love the games, dance parties, and contests almost as much as they love the Parks!

    The nearby beach area is a perfect viewing spot for the nightly floating Electric Water Pageant, and makes for a beautiful setting to catch fireworks over the Magic Kingdom;

    Restaurants include 'Ohana, where Lilo and Stitch will join Guests for breakfast, as well as Kona Cafe (home of some incredible Kona coffee!) and Captain Cook's, where you can get a delicious Dole Whip.

    Another bonus: the Polynesian is on the monorail line, so service to Magic Kingdom and Epcot is literally just outside the door.

    This answer does not even address the Neverland Kids' Club, the Spirit of Aloha luau, the shopping, the outdoor activities available ... The Polynesian is a gorgeous Resort that will offer you relaxation and excitement, whichever your pleasure. Truly, you can't go wrong at this world-class Resort.


    See you later, celebrator!
