    Hi! We are planning a trip for December 2021 with four adults and 4 kids (15, 13, 13, 9). We want to stay at the Polynesian but are debating multiple rooms vs. a suite or bungalow. Any tips for what type of room we should get and how to reserve?

    Hi Mary!

    To quote the lovable Stitch: “Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind.” Here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, you are like family, and we surely will make sure you won’t get left behind when it comes time to make your booking for December next year!

    You'll need to wait a little longer to finalize your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Currently, 2021 reservations can be made through late September, and no announcements have been made beyond that. But I’d say the best resource to stay on top of Disney developments is the Disney Parks Blog

    For a family of six, you have several options for your Disney Resort stay. True, you absolutely could do two hotel rooms and request that they be adjoining. You can also consider Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows since you do not have to be a Disney Vacation Club member to reserve a stay. You would have either two studios or a single bungalow as your choices. I would suggest that as soon as you hear the booking window has opened for your dates, jump online or call a Cast Member or your travel agent. Be sure to book as early as possible as availability is limited.

    There are so many reasons why my family adores Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort so much:

    -The Lava Pool with its giant volcano and twisty waterslide wins with the kids.

    -The resort’s location on the Walt Disney World monorail system means we are mere minutes away from the Magic Kingdom.

    -Dining at ‘Ohana. The Bread Pudding is hands down one of my all-time favorite desserts!

    -My husband and I love the fun atmosphere and inventive drinks at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.

    -Being able to have a DOLE Whip® at Pineapple Lanai.

    -Waking up only steps away from my favorite breakfast dish: the Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe.

    One thing is for certain after reading this list: food is clearly the way to my heart!

    You don't have to speak Stitch's Tantalog language to know that he would say, "Iki bah bah" which means "come on"...as in come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions. Wishing you good luck with your planning and a fabulous vacation!
