    We are visiting in Aug. We were going to get a package including DP at a val resort but a relative graciously used their credit card pts to book us a room at Poly. I know we can't get the dining plan but are all the other hotel perks available to us?

    Aloha, Melinda,

    What a wonderful treat to have been gifted a stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. While my family likes all of the Disney resorts, I think this one continues to be our favorite as we love the theming, the large rooms, and the convenience to the parks.  

    The resort has many amenities that you will be able to enjoy as a guest of the resort. You may also want to take a peek at the independent website Tikimanpages.com to read further about the resort.  My family really enjoys the Torch Lighting Ceremony, watching the Electric Water Pageant from the beach, and Movies under the Stars. And if you are a coffee fanatic, I'd include a visit to Kona Island in the morning for a cup of Kona coffee.  

    Wishing you a magical vacation!  -Kara
