    Standard non DVC room at the Polynesian only have beverage coolers, but the medication we need to bring requires it to be colder. Can we get a real mini fridge? Which floors have balconies you can sit on with chairs. Hearing some don't.

    Aloha, Sara! Welcome to planDisney.

    You are in for a treat with a stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! The rooms at this beautiful resort have recently been themed after one of my favorite Disney movies, Moana. The rooms are stunning and you're sure to love the subtle Disney touches in the tropical decor. 

    You'll be happy to hear that the rooms at this resort come equipped with a standard mini-fridge, not a cooler. These mini-fridges should maintain similar temperatures as full-size refrigerators. Be sure to check out the other resort amenities available at this resort!

    Regarding balconies at the Polynesian, there is a range of options. Some rooms have a balcony with chairs, others have a patio with chairs, and some simply have a sliding door. If there is a specific arrangement that you are looking for, you can make a room request during the online check-in process. Please note that requests cannot be guaranteed, but it never hurts to ask. Furthermore, in my experience, the fewer requests you make, the more likely you are to get your request. If having a balcony is very important to you, only request the balcony as it is easier to fulfill one request rather than many!

    When completing online check-in through your My Disney Experience account, there will be a section for making room requests and you can likely make your request there. If the options given do not meet your particular needs, you can speak directly to a Cast Member by calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line. They will be happy to note your request on the account. Sometimes I make the request through online check-in and call to ensure the best chance of getting my request!

    I can't wait for you to experience everything this resort has to offer, including some of my favorite dining options!

    Have a magical vacation,
