Best Poly feature.

If I had to choose one feature of the Polynesian Resort that I liked best I would choose the Kona Cafe. I am a big breakfast person and the Tonga Toast and other breakfast items are great. The Lilikoi juice is not to be missed.

We just returned on 12/19 from our first stay at the Poly. We enjoyed the resort so much that we are planning on returning in 2005. I think the location is one thing that we liked. We have yonger children so we spent 4 of our nine days at MK. We could either take the boad or Monorail. The boat was very quick. Also the bus service was great, never more than a 10 min. wait. The resort thememing was wonderful and the kids had a great time at the pool. On our previous trip we statyed at the WL and prefer the Poly.

The best feature for me was the monorail! It was great being able to just hop right on!

Another vote for monorail accessability and Kona Cafe. . . Can't be beat.

Transportation! While I love the resort's lush surroundings, the first and most important reason we stay there is that the Poly has the best transportation options than any other resort - monorail, walking distance to TTC, and boat launch to MK.

For me its the whole atmopshere/feel that I get when there. Theres something about just being there.
Of course, a close second would the Ohana, Kona, Tambu Lounge, the monorail, the pool & beach, the view......

Too many to choose. . .

If I must choose one thing--it's got to be atmosphere, especially at night! Tiki torches burning brightly in the night, lovely soft Polynesian music playing in the background, the MK across the lagoon. . .what more could one ask for?
