Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • Among the most expensive Deluxe Resort Hotels
  • What villa you book largely depends on what's important to you, but as a smaller resort, there is less walking
  • Bus services is shared to Disney's Hollywood Studios® and Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park

Notable Facts

  • Underwent recent renovation on the Great Ceremonial House lobby and Lave Pool, and to add deluxe studios and the over-the-water Bora Bora bungalows
  • Each of the bungalows is 1,650 square feet, and includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private deck and private plunge pool
  • Each of the longhouses are named for Polynesian islands
  • John Lennon signed papers to officially break up the Beatles at the Polynesian on Dec. 29, 1974
  • Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is currently rated as a AAA 4-Diamond resort

Frog Family Tips

  • Take the boat to Magic Kingdom® Park — it's often faster than the monorail, especially during less busy times
  • Try the Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe — it's banana-stuffed sourdough French toast rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with a strawberry compote
  • For a friendly and fun night away from the kids, head over to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto; most drinks are big enough for sharing!
  • Get your Dole Whip fix outside of the park at Pineapple Lanai
  • Select the Tokelau longhouse for the best all-around access to pools, dining and lobby
  • If you want to be closest to Transportation and Ticket Center, select Moorea (water views are deluxe studios)

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families with longer stays, who love the relaxed, island vibe, being close to Magic Kingdom® Park and Epcot®, plenty of dining options and amenities, and don't mind paying for the convenience

Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows Information

At this Disney Deluxe Resort, nestled within the island-themed reimagined Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, guests can savor in the splendor of Polynesia as they settle into a warm welcoming world that celebrates the passing of time in languid tranquility. Upon arrival, Cast Members will welcome you into an 'ohana family as cherished cousins.

The overwater bungalows are sure to make for a one-of-a-kind stay. Each of the 2 bedroom bungalows comes equipped with a full kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, additional privacy, and a washer and dryer, making them the perfect choice for families.

The deluxe studios are a great option for smaller travel parties and shorter stays.

  • Early Theme Park Entry for Resort Hotel Guests - guests of Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels can get a 30-minute jump on their Disney day with early theme park entry—available at all 4 Walt Disney World theme parks—for each day of your stay, subject to capacity
  • Extended Evening Theme Park Hours – guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels or Disney Deluxe Villas and other select hotels can enjoy extended evening hours—experiencing select attractions, shops, and dining after regular park hours—in select theme parks on select nights.

Planning to visit a theme park? To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid theme park ticket, for the same park on the same date, are required for Guests ages 3 and up. Keep in mind: a hotel reservation does not guarantee theme park access (though Disney Hotel Guests do have access to a separate pool), and you’ll need a Disney account to make a separate theme park reservation. Prior to booking, be sure to view theme park reservation availability as park reservations are limited in availability and not guaranteed. You can check the reservation availability here.

Face coverings are optional for Guests in both indoor and outdoor locations. However, face coverings are not permitted while experiencing water slides or in the water.

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Park Transportation - Overnight self-parking at the hotel is free and depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Skyliner, Monorail, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also within walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants, and more.
  • Merchandise Delivery and Pickup – Merchandise delivery is available for purchases made in-store at select Walt Disney World® shops and through the Shop Disney Parks mobile app (for in-stock merchandise).
