Polynesian Resort on DVC points

Want to stay at the Polynesian Resort with my DVC points and I was wondering what type of room they give you. I just see on the points chart that they have a choice of garden view, lagoon view, or club level but it doesnt say if the room is a suite or a regular room. Does anyone know what the room type is? Thanks.

We did this several years ago. We were given a nice room on the first floor of Aeotearoa (?) with a garden view. It was a nice, standard view room.

I'm sure you would get a standard room unless you request Club level with the extra points. Last year we stayed Club level at the Polynesian and it was so worth it. It was a nice first floor room facing the Magic Kingdom and the perks were wonderful.

Yup, get get a standard room, but it is quite large. We stayed on New Year's Eve a few years ago. All of the DVC units were full, so we stayed at the Poly on points. I requested a Lagoon View room and we got it. That year it poured cats and dogs on New Year's Eve. While everyone was getting drenched at MK for the fireworks, we went to our room and opened the blinds... nice and dry.

Anywhere from 42 to 120 points per night. Three views, five season, Sun-Thur and Fri/Sat.

This is great info! I am calling today to change my ressie. We had to add days and I am wait listed but in talking to my DBF we decided not to add days at the park or the dining plan. Poly concierge would be a perfect fit! We would have the lounge and we can hang at the pool.
KKCannon-Im happy to hear someone who thinks it was worth it. So many people say don't ever use your points on non DVC resorts because it's not worth the extra points. We have a high surplus of points right now because we banked last year AND we unfortunately will not be traveling to WDW next year.

If you purchased your contract(s) resale after a certain date (not sure which date), you won't be able to use your points for WDW hotel rooms. Or for Disney Cruises, for that matter.
