    We are staying at the Polynesian for the 1st time during our visit in September '10. What area/building do you recommend? We are traveling with our 2 daughters, ages 8 and 4. I really want to make it as magical as possible!


    Oh the magic of the Polynesian, one of my favorite resorts.  The building we request is Tokelau because of its central proximity to all forms transportation and it is right next to the quiet pool; perfect for a quick night dip after a long day at the parks. However, with your little ones that may not be as much of a priority. The other feature we love about this resort is that while it has garden views, many of the rooms have sneaky Magic Kingom views.  When we stayed on the first floor, all we had to do was go out the patio door and look to our side; there was the castle! If you'd prefer to be right next to the Great Ceremonial House and main pool, you might prefer Samoa. 

    If you'd like to explore all the longhouses and more details about the Polynesian, I highly recommend an amazing website:  It explores everything and anything about the resort, including extensive information on all the longhouses and photos of them. By seeing all the details, it may help you see something I've overlooked in sharing that you'd like.
