Aloha and welcome to the spring 2015 edition of the Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Information Thread!
In 1971, along with the Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort opened as one of Walt Disney World’s first on-site hotels.
Located on the monorail loop directly across the Seven Sea’s Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has gone through two major expansions since its opening. The first was in 1978 with another in 1985. At that time the name changed to Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Beginning in 2014 and continuing into 2015 Disney’s Polynesian Resort began undergoing many new changes with several major refurbishments, including the lobby of the Great Ceremonial House and the Nanea volcano pool as well as the addition of Disney’s Vacation Club to the property. The Polynesian also reverted back to its original name.
The goal of this thread is to answer any questions that you may have about Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Detailed information is provided in the first several posts, along with photos of the resort. As they become available the thread photos will continue to be updated to reflect the ongoing changes to the Polynesian as they are completed.
If you have any questions that are not answered in the information section please feel free to ask and hopefully one of our Poly faithful will be able to help!
I would like to acknowledge the contributions and hard work of the former keepers of the Poly thread, Seaspray, BreezysMom and Guitarob, along with any that carried the tiki torch before them. Mahalo!
