Get ready to experience the wonders of the South-Pacific without leaving the mainland! From tiki torches to koi ponds, every detail of the Polynesian Resort contributes to a unique and immersive tropical-themed environment. In the video below, the Fidelity Team takes a look at some of the best features to discover with the top 5 reasons to stay at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
#5 – Hula Lessons
Learn to shake it like they do in the South Pacific with free hula classes. You’ll learn traditional dance moves and chants native to the islands under the guidance of a professional hula instructor with decades of experience. It’s a great way to start the day and get the blood flowing before trekking through the theme parks!
#4 – Jogging Trail
Your Disney vacation doesn’t have to be plagued by guilt. Get your fitness fix on the 1-mile scenic jogging trail which takes you along the waterfront from the Polynesian over to the Grand Floridian Resort. On the way you’ll pass the Polynesian waterside Bungalows, white sand beaches, the Grand Floridian Wedding Chapel, and fantastic views of the Magic Kingdom Resort.
#3 – Lava Pool
Only the magic of Disney can bring hot and cold together like the Polynesian Lava Pool where guests can swim through a waterfall cascading from a volcano! This unique aquatic attraction also includes a 142-foot waterslide, plus a lounge and bar.
#2 – Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
Ready for an escape to the islands? Don’t forget to bring your appetite, because the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show will satiate your cravings for both delectable Pacific cuisine and a one-of-a-kind cultural experience. Watch in awe as performers demonstrate traditional dances from across Polynesia. All the while, you’ll savor the flavors of authentic island dishes. This endless smorgasbord of tasty tropical treats includes pulled pork, BBQ ribs, roasted chicken and fresh salad with mango poppy seed vinaigrette, honey-lime slaw and pineapple-coconut bread. The symphony of flavors will have you convinced that you’re in paradise!
#1 – Villas
By far, the latest and greatest reason to visit Disney’s Polynesian has to be the brand new bungalows! Reminiscent of resort cottages in Bora Bora, these one-bedroom bungalows over the water are completely unique to the Polynesian Village and you won’t find similar accommodations at any other Disney World Resort. Each bungalow sleeps up to 8 guests, includes a private boardwalk, and a plunge pool. From the balcony you’ll have a spectacular view of Magic Kingdom and the nightly Electrical Water Pageant. The perfect combination of modern design and distinctive South Pacific theming, vacation photos of the Polynesian Bungalows are bound to be the envy and family, friends, and Instagram followers!
