  • Overall Impression: The room was not as well kept as I would have liked. There was a black spot on the bed runner and the fold down bed under the TV was banged up pretty bad. The view of the Magic Kingdom more then made up for any issues.

  • Overall Impression: I love the Polynesian. It truly makes me feel like I am in an exotic tropical locale. You can't beat the DVC Villas (with two bathrooms in the studio), the bars and lounges, and we love having the boat the Magic Kingdom as a transportation alternative to the monorail. Given a choice, I would choose the Poly over any other Disney resort.

  • Overall Impression: We had a wonderful stay at the Polynesian Villas. i was a bit concerned about the horn from the ferry at the TTC, but it wasn't a problem at all. Being in easy walking distance to the TTC and catch the Monorail to Epcot was a game changer. After staying at several resorts around Disney World property, this one is my absolute favorite.

  • Overall Impression: It’s a tie between the Polynesian and Beach Club for my favorite Disney World Resort. But this resort checks a lot of boxes. Big and clean rooms, great decor, amazing food, and a fantastic pool. It’s hard to beat.

  • Overall Impression: Yes because I’m DVC but service here is awful bad lately. The service is bad on all fronts from reception to housekeeping and has been getting worse over the years. If I had choice I would stay elsewhere but it’s my home resort so I will have to stay when I’ve no other available choice but would be reluctant because of service levels

  • Overall Impression: We stayed in a Lake View room on the second floor. This is one of the best views in WDW. That being said, I have received a room on the 1st floor in the past, and you cannot see the castle or fireworks from your room. This is a real downside considering the amount of points a Lake View costs.

  • Overall Impression: 1st dvc stay. When we arrived to our room it was very dusty. I can overlook that. When I went to sit on the bed it was covered in someone else's hair. Not a strand or 2, covered. SO GROSS. Went to front desk and all they did was offer to reclean, said no other rooms to move to. Went to the pool so the could clean. Came back to take showers only to find hair in the tub! Another trip to front desk to speak with a manager. No manager to speak with. CM did give a small credit back to our room. I have wanted to stay at the poly forever. Unfortunately this was my 1 and only stay and was so glad it was only 2 nights. We spent our 1st 7 nights at BLT which was AMAZING. We felt like is was a huge downgrade to go from BLT to Poly. The room was so gross and felt so dark and dated. We will not stay again

  • Overall Impression: It was always a dream of mine to stay here and after staying here, it’s just ok. For the amount of money it costs, there are nicer resorts. If they did some updates and I got a really good deal, maybe I would stay here again. Probably not, though, because there are other resorts that I like so much better.

  • Overall Impression: We enjoyed the convenience of staying on the monorail loop. We booked this resort for two nights of relaxing and each evening found ourselves going to the Magic Kingdom, because who can stare at Cinderella Castle all day and not go? The pools were great, the food was fantastic, the dole whips were on point, the second bathroom area was incredible but we couldn't wait to get home so we could sleep.

  • Overall Impression: We really liked it. We stayed on a cash reservation. In the process of buying DVC at BLT but would definitely come back if we only needed a studio type room. The second shower was great. Laundry was a little disappointing. I would prefer it to be by quiet pool so you can swim while doing laundry.
