    We're staying at poly on our next trip. I know there is a sand beach, but is there access to any water? Not for swimming, just maybe a spigot or something a kid could fill a pail? My 6yo is dying to make a sand castle.

    Hi David,

    At Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, you're in for a treat with its stunning sand beach and poolside paradise! While the sand beach offers a delightful spot for families to enjoy during the day, it transforms into something truly magical at night, providing a picturesque view of Happily Ever After, the beautiful fireworks show at Magic Kingdom Park.

    However, it's important to note that guests aren't allowed to access the water along the beach. After all, it's Florida, and you never know what might be lurking in those waters! But fear not, there are still plenty of ways for your little sandcastle enthusiast to enjoy their beach time.

    During the day, the pool area is brimming with activities for families to indulge in. Your child can have a blast participating in poolside games or splashing around in the refreshing waters. And if they need water for their sandcastle adventures, they can easily ask for a cup of water from Barefoot Pool Bar or maybe even fill up their pail from the pool or restroom and carry it over to the beach.

    So, while the water along the beach may be off-limits, there's no shortage of fun and creativity to be had at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Enjoy building those sandcastles under the sun, and don't forget to catch the breathtaking fireworks display in the evening!
