    We will be going to Disney this December and staying at the bungalows at the Polynesian. We usually stay at the hotel. Is it a long walk to the pool from where we are staying? I have two grandchildren ages 7 and 3 they love the pool.

    Welcome Home!

    Janet, I am thrilled to hear that you will be enjoying your own private plunge pool on the deck of your magnificent Bungalow! I think you will be very impressed.

    While it can all be a bit relative, I don't believe that you will find the Bugalows to be far from either beautiful, access restricted pool at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. In fact, you are staying where I consider the very best location on Resort property. You will have a very short stroll to the Transportation Ticket Center for a quick monorail ride to either Magic Kingdom Park or Epcot. You are going to be just steps, perhaps 3-5 minutes from both swimming pools. It will only require a few minutes to reach the dock for Motor Launch transportation to Magic Kingdom Park. Of course, you will have a most spectacular view of Cinderella Castle and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. It will be incredible. I'm confident that your grandchildren will agree!

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions, Susan!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
