    We have a studio at Polynesian located near the villas, not sure about this location is it a far walk from the lobby and the spray pool. I have a 3 year old. What is the benefit of staying in this area?

    Welcome back!

    The Deluxe Studio Villas at Disney's Polynesian Villas and Bunaglows are the largest and newest at Walt Disney World Resort! I just know you will really enjoy your stay.

    You will find these spacious accommodations in the Tokelau, Moorea, and Pago Pago Longhouses. They are conveniently closer to the Transportation & Ticket Center side of the Resort rather than the side that houses the pavilion for the Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, which is nice.

    You will discover that Lava Pool, the feature swimming pool complete with the brilliantly designed water play area, is centrally located just outside the doors to The Great Ceremonial House. Oasis pool is located even slightly closer to the Longhouses on this side of the Resort. I would expect the walk from your Longhouse to anywhere in this fairly compact Resort to take between 5-8 minutes. It really is just a wonderful area to vacation.

    Finally, I'm confident that your granddaughter will be delighted when she discovers what my daughters like to call the "magic bed" hidden in the television console in your Deluxe Studio Villa. A dreamy painting of starry night will lull her to peaceful sleep in this bunk-sized bed perfect for your youngest Mouseketeer.

    Please let us know how else we can help, Janet! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
