Welcome to the South Pacific. The moment you walk inside you can smell the tropics and hear the waterfalls. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort open in October of 1971 and is one of the original Disney resorts. Each night take a walk down the torch lit walks and experience the lush atmosphere. This is a beautiful resort to experience the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom on the white sand beach along Seven Seas Lagoon.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has various rooms to offer from Standard to Suites or Concierge services. You can have a standard, lagoon, or theme park (Magic Kingdom) view for each of the room tiers.
Make sure to visit the pools at here too! They are beautiful. The Nanea Volcano Pool features a waterfall and waterslide. There is also a quieter & larger pool in between longhouses, both pools are heated.

At 9:00 pm each night head down to the lagoon for the Electrical Water Pageant. It’s a must see! Also, on Tuesday to Saturday evening go to the Great Ceremonial House at 6 pm for the torch lighting ceremony.

To get to the Magic Kingdom or EPCOT there are a few ways to use Disney Transportation. You can get on a monorail that stops at the hotel or take a Disney boat. If you choose the monorail and want to get to EPCOT – you will need to transfer monorails at the TTC (Transportation & Ticket Center). You can also walk to the TTC to get to EPCOT or take the Big Disney Ferry over to the Magic Kingdom. To get to another park or downtown you will need to board a Disney bus.
Don’t forget that last minute gift! You can purchase that at BouTIKI or Trader Jacks!
