    I have a current reservation at Polynesian (lagoon view), I wanted standard view but wasn't available. How do I go about requesting standard if it becomes available?

    Hi Jane,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I adore Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The tranquility calms my nerves after a hectic travel day or hours in the park!

    To note your request, I suggest calling to speak with a cast member at 407-939-5277. Also, keep checking the Special Offers online. If you see a difference in price and the standard view is less expensive, call to see if a cast member can apply the special offer to your existing reservation. Although this is not guaranteed, you should definitely make the request! In the past, I have been able to get a newly released special offer applied to my existing reservation. Also check again when you arrive. 

    Jane, I know you will absolutely love this resort. The pools are gorgeous. Our girls loved the waterfall area in the Lava Pool. The food at 'Ohana was simply fabulous and our view of the Happily Ever After fireworks show during dinner captivated us all. We loved having such easy access to the Resort Monorail. If you have not made reservations yet, consider experiencing Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. Though all of the dancers were amazing, the fire dancer was unbelievable!

    We had a first floor room with a lovely patio and also took some time to wash clothes in the laundry facility. We made good use of Capt. Cook's beverage refill area with our resort refillable mugs. We love those mugs!

    Sending pixie dust your way hoping you are able to reserve that Standard View room!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
