Disney's Polynesian Village Resort


The Resort is currently undergoing a large transformation and refurbishment into a DVC Resort. From 1st April 2015 there will be additional accommodation available, in the form of 20 luxurious lagoon villas.



On the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon, just south of the Magic Kingdom Park, sits Disney's answer to a South Pacific paradise. One of the many benefits of being on the Lagoon, is the potential for romance. The beaches or boat dock are great spots from which to view the Electrical Water Pageant or Magic Kingdom Park fireworks with that special someone. Disney's Polynesian Resort is one of the two original Walt Disney World resorts that opened in 1971. The centerpiece of Disney's Polynesian Resort, is the Great Ceremonial House, the resort's main reception area. This tropical paradise has a 3 story high garden that takes up much of the lobby area. Cascading water falls over craggy volcanic rock amidst an atrium that has 75 varieties of tropical and subtropical plants. The theming continues throughout the grounds of the resort with white sand beaches, torchlight walkways, tropical landscaping, waterfalls, colorful costumes and longhouses fashioned after South Pacific lodges. The rooms are located in the eleven A-frame longhouses that have exotic names such as Tonga, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tuvalu, Hawaii, Samoa, Niue, Rarotonga, Tokelau, Tahiti, and Rapa Nui.

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is on the monorail route and the station is located on the second floor of the great Ceremonial House. This monorail route stops at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Contemporary Resort and the Ticket and Transportation Center as well. To get to Epcot, you must transfer at the TTC to get on a separate train that travels to Epcot'. There is a walkway to the TTC that is just a short walk from the Tahiti and the Rapu Nui longhouses. Guests of Disney's Polynesian Resort who wish to go to Disney-MGM Studios, Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park , Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, or Downtown Disney' Area , can take the bus from the stop in front of the Great Ceremonial House. After 4 p.m., those wishing to go to Downtown Disney' Marketplace, Downtown Disney' Pleasure Island, or Downtown Disney? West Side , must take a bus from the TTC.
