    We are staying at the Polynesian for 6 nights in May. I have heard that some of the rooms have been recently renovated. Which ones have and what is the best location for a family of four with two kids under six?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    You have picked a magnificent resort to stay at during your time in Walt Disney World Resort!  It is one of our favorites.  With its convenience to the Magic Kingdom via the monorail and the island mood of the waterfalls and fragrant floral smells as you enter the Ceremonial House, this hotel has lots to offer. While I have not heard of any recent renovations (a major rehab was done to the rooms in 2006), I can offer some advice for ideal locations to request for various reasons.

    We stayed in the Tokelau building which is one of the larger longhouses and the rooms are a bit larger offering more room to spread out during your stay.  If you are looking for a building that is closest to the Ceremonial House (which houses the restaurants, front desk, concierge and the monorail station), Rarotonga, Tonga, and Niue are your best bet!  The Samoa and Hawaii are closest to the Nanea Volcano pool.

    I hope these suggestions can better help you plan your trip.  Keep in mind that any request is not a guarantee and are subject to availability.

    Enjoy the tropical atmosphere and the 'Ohana spirit of this resort during your stay!
