    Help! Need some expert advice. This is our 4th trip to WDW, but our 1st time staying on property. We are having a hard time deciding Where. We def. want a deluxe resort - room size, transportation, price, dining and pools are all imp- Is the Poly worth it?

    We have stayed at the Polynesian Resort a few times. It is a perfect spot to feel like you are immersed in the magic of WDW.

    The rooms are very large. Transportation is via monorail to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. It's not as expensive as the Grand Floridian but offers many of the same fabulous amenities. Dining is offered at the resort with the Kona Cafe and 'Ohana's. Plus you are only a monorail ride away to the Contemporary and Grand Floridian resorts. Many more restaurants await you nearby, including at the Wilderness Lodge. For casual, fun dining visit the Whispering Canyon Cafe. More intimate dining can be found at the Artist Point.

    The pool at the Polynesian is beautiful. The Nanea volcano pool offers a slide, zero depth entry and a view of Cinderella's Castle. One of my best memories is swimming in the pool while watching the Wishes fireworks.
