    Hi there. We have a reservation for a pool or marina view room at the Polynesian in October. I was wondering if both type rooms are Moana themed. Also, is it possible to request a pool view room? Thank you, Ashley

    Aloha Ashley and welcome back to planDisney!

    It's so great for us to see you coming back year after year with your questions about Walt Disney World Resort Hotels ahead of each trip down to Florida, and it's wonderful that you're heading to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for your next autumn adventure.

    You'll be happy to hear that according to a friendly Reservations Cast Member, all of the rooms (with the exception of the Disney Vacation Club Deluxe Studio Villas and Bungalows as well as select Suites) have received the recently reimagined look celebrating Moana's story. Some of my favorite details include the tattoo tapestry that Maui wears on his skin spread out onto the accent walls of the rooms, and be sure to spot Hei Hei hiding behind the coffee machine! Sometimes it is possible to make certain requests on your reservation, especially when you speak with a Cast Member to make sure that a note is made about your request so that you can follow up with the Front Desk upon your arrival. Note that this is never guaranteed and priority may be made for guests with certain needs including accessibility, but in my experience you may have some success if you request certain buildings like Hawaii, Samoa and Tokelau for a greater probability of receiving pool views. 

    In my opinion there's something really special about spending the first day of your stay just enjoying the amenities; I recommend waiting for your room to be ready with a visit to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, checking out the volcano at the Lava Pool, and ending the evening with fireworks at 'Ohana or barefoot on the beach. Be sure to check out the planDisney Pocket Guide to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and during your stay you can even take a chance to peek at some of Imagineering in action as a new tower expansion continues to be built this year! You're always welcome to come on back to planDisney to ask me any more questions you may have ahead of your upcoming visit!

    See that line where the sky meets the sea? That's your upcoming voyage just on the horizon, and I hope it's one filled with a lot of adventure!
