Walt Disney World Resort
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Review
October 31, 2022

Here at Get Away Today we love exploring all Walt Disney World has to offer. From four headlining theme parks, two incredible water parks, an entertainment district and more than 25 Walt Disney World Resort hotels, we have done it all!

Today, we’re taking a closer look at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Walt Disney World groups their onsite hotels into four categories:

  • Deluxe Villa
  • Deluxe Resort
  • Moderate Resort
  • Value Resort

This is one of Walt Disney World’s deluxe properties, which means you can expect unique theming and experiences unlike anything else. While deluxe Resort hotels do have a higher price tag, they usually come with amenities that warrant the higher number.

Other value resorts at Walt Disney World include:

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom)
  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort (close to Disney’s Polynesian Village)
  • Disney’s BoardWalk Villas (close to EPCOT)
  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort (close to Magic Kingdom)
  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (close to Magic Kingdom)
  • Disney’s Wilderness Resort (close to Magic Kingdom)
  • Disney’s Yacht Club Resort (close to EPCOT)

‘Ohana Dinner

One of the most sought after dining options at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has to be the ‘Ohana Dinner! This feast includes tons of food served family style along with family games instead of character visits.

Kona Cafe

This casual eatery offers family-friendly dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy American cuisine, Hawaiian foods and Asian-inspired meals including sushi. You can even watch the chefs at work in the onstage sushi kitchen while you dine.

Polynesian Village Resort is the first stop on the Monorail dining journey. After each course, you board the Monorail and head to the next destination. Advance reservations are recommended.

We Recommend…

Experience your own island escape with tons of Disney magic. Book your next Orlando vacation at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! Remember that all 2-Night and longer Walt Disney World vacation packages include complimentary concierge services from a Get Away Today travel expert.

For a stay this exquisite we recommend staying at least 5 nights, with 4-day 1 Park per Day tickets. This will give you time to not only enjoy your resort amenities but also allows you to experience one day at each of the main theme parks. If you have less time, we recommend considering a Park Hopper ticket so you can still experience all four parks.

We also recommend the Water Park and Sports Option add-on to visit the nearby Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon during your stay at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

A specialist can help you book available experiences, dining and the perfect Disney resort hotel room for your vacation, including a stay at Polynesian Village Resort. Check out our Walt Disney World vacation packages online or call an agent at 855-GET-AWAY.
