Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is Located just across the Seven Seas Lagoon.  The South Seas come to Florida at the Polynesian Village Resort. Each of the eleven buildings in this resort are named for a different island in the South Pacific. The guest areas complete the experience with tiki torches, waterfalls, a beach with castle view and lots of lush, tropical landscaping. Amenities abound at this resort and the restaurants are a destination in themselves. Guests can even attend a luau at this resort and cap the evening off by viewing the fireworks from the beach or a dip in the volcano themed feature pool.

Check our Rehabs and Closures schedule for any refurbishments or work taking place at the Polynesian Village Resort during your visit.

Disney’s Polynesian Village VIP Top Tips

Watch the fireworks from the beach, snagging a hammock if possible. It’s a nice way to get a different view on the fireworks.

Try to catch the torch lighting ceremony performed in front of the Polynesian Village Resort. Check with Guest Services for times and dates.

If you have monorail fans in the family, some of the standard rooms have a great view of the monorails coming and going. Do a little bit of research ahead of time about the monorails to make it more interesting.

If you are heading to Epcot via monorail, you may want to walk over to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Depending on which longhouse you are in, it may be quicker than taking the Magic Kingdom monorail and switching monorail lines at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

Visit the Pineapple Lanai just outside the back entrance for a Dole Whip!
