Updated Review of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

By Dave Shute

Updated Review of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort from

This morning I published my updated review of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, based on my stay—my sixth here—in mid-July.

The Pool at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort from

The updated review begins here, and includes all-new room pictures, better pictures of the new Oasis Pool, a new photo tour of a Bungalow, updated restaurant reviews from The easy Guide’s 2017 edition, and more.

I also re-ordered the flow of material as I have been lately with my updated reviews, so that the overview of accommodations now comes before the photo tour of a standard room. Which makes sense, I think!!

Here’s the topics covered in the review, in their new order:

This visit was my first in a Club room at the Poly, and also my first in a Magic Kingdom view room there. While you’ll see photos related to both in the updated review, I didn’t not write in much detail about either.

Wishes from a Theme Park View Room at Disney's Polynesian Resort 2 from

Rather, I’ll be doing a separate post on club rooms later (it’ll be similar to Tom Bricker’s post, based on my room, here), and will do a post on theme park view rooms (an image shot from my balcony is above) in September, after my stay in a Grand Floridian theme park view room on my next visit.

Thanks for another great review. Based on the information here, we switched our room at the Polynesian from a standard room to a DVC studio suite. It was only $91 more for the whole week and I think the extra shower will be a boon for us in the mornings.

Great, Anthony!
