    We’re staying at the Polynesian with a car. What provision does the hotel make when all parking spaces for guests are filled?

    Hello, Rudolf. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I am so excited for you and your upcoming trip. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is an incredible place to stay. It's one of my very favorites. When I visit Walt Disney World, for the most part, I always drive. I love having the flexibility of just hopping in my car and going, whenever I feel like it. I think you'll be happy to know that in all my years staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, there has always been a parking spot for me. I visit every year over Christmas, the busiest time of year, and still have been able to park - no matter which resort I might be staying at. I wouldn't worry about that at all. There is plenty of parking for resort Guests. In fact, Guest staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort receive priority over parking spots if it looks like the lot is filling up. Day Guests visiting for dining reservations and whatnot must first stop at the security gates before being allowed into the resort. If it seems busy, security will actually send those Guests over to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and have them ride the monorail over to the resort to make sure there is room for you to park. 

    Even when I am not staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, I make it a point to head over there to enjoy a meal or a cocktail at one of the fun bars located in the hotel. Trader Sam's Grog Grotto is a fun spot to spend some time in the evening, if you get a chance. The theming of this lounge is amazing and there's even a mini show put on for each drink on the menu. If you order the Shrunken Zombie Head, for example, your server might put on some googly glasses and limp your beverage over to you, and don't even get me started on what happens if you order the Uh-Oa! That one you'll just have to find out for yourself. If you are looking for a fun, family-friendly lounge to spend an evening in, this is your place! 

    I hope this helps ease your mind about parking Rudolph. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
