Just okay at the Poly

Have always wanted to stay at the Polynesian. Finally got the chance after staying at several other Disney deluxe resorts. There are a few things this hotel has going for it; the pool, the tropical grounds, and the distance to magic kingdom. The rooms are big but feel like you stepped back in time to 1975. Decor was very bland, lighting very gloomy. The elevator was old and small, the hallway carpets were dirty. Hard to believe Disney charges this much money for a very mediocre room. You would think with the amount they charge they can invest some money Into the maintenance of the buildings and the rooms. Also, why doesn’t every room have a balcony?

The pool is honestly the star of the hotel. Nothing beats relaxing in the pool with the magic kingdom in the background. The one downside about the pool, it gets too crowded during the afternoon.

I did enjoy my stay at the Polynesian, but I think 75% of the value is in the short distance to the magic kingdom. If you don’t care about this aspect, I would recommend staying elsewhere. There are better, more updated, Disney resorts out there.

Reminds us of Maui

We visited the Polynesian resort for a character breakfast. It is so beautiful and the people are so nice there. It really reminded us of Maui. We had a great time looking around the gift shops and checking the place out. The pool looked amazing with a zero entry at one end. I saw they have snack stand that offers dole whip which is a tasty frozen treat you find in Magic Kingdom. This is a nice place.

Beautiful and all good things, but BAD internet.

We LOVE it here. Great pool. Beautiful scenery. And monorail station in lobby?!? The best. This place is fantastic. I wish there were some extra American items in Capt Hook, but Grand Floridian is in walking distance and Contemporary is a monorail ride away. One big issue, at least for our stay in Pago Pago, is that the internet REALLY stinks. The WiFi is atrocious, and only got two bars on LTE. So after a long day of parks and kids, I want to watch some Netflix and chill, but the connectivity is bad. For the price, it should be perfect. Still, that’s one real problem amid so much beauty and perfection. We also love the path to the transportation center so we can get right on the monorail for Epcot.

Good and bad

We stayed May 5-11. The room was clean & comfortable. Large with plenty of room for our family of 3. We did have a few incidents here that put a bad taste in my mouth though & therefore we are unsure if we'll be back. The smoke detector went off at 5:30 am one morning. To most this wouldn't be a big deal but we just had a massive house fire a year ago. We also have a child with ASD &SPD. You can imagine how scary this was for us as it woke us out of a dead sleep. My poor child sitting in the hallway shaking & covering his ears b/c of the sound. This isn't the resorts fault but when I told them why I was upset they just said "sorry" & that was that. The maintenance man was the only one that seemed to have any concern for how we were feeling. Not what I expected from a Disney resort. To show such little care when I explained why this bothered us so much was a little upsetting. The next day we went to Moana's Mercantile, my son is autistic & while he was walking around with something. He then turned around & placed it on a shelf. I went to correct him to go put it back where he found it the sales lady shouted "Go put it back where you found it!". I was stunned but looked at my child who was also shocked and said "go put it back buddy" I have never in my life been a store when this has happened. Clerks usually say something like "I'll put that back for you" but instead shouted at my child to do it himself. I was so embarrassed. I assure you that if she had offered I would have had him do it but it was the way she approached it. The people who work in Captain Cooks were amazing. My son really struggled in there b/c it was loud & busy but they really went above & beyond when they saw him have a hard time. They helped me find a quiet place for him & our whole stay were very helpful. THIS was the customer service I expected from everyone there. The pool & splash pad were AMAZING. The view of the fireworks each night was pretty unbeatable. Aside from the incidents I mentioned above it was a pleasant stay.

Amazing stay

We had another wonderful stay at the BEST WDW resort. The tropical theme made this hotel so serene and relaxing the minute you entered the hotel lobby. Everyone is friendly and helpful as usual. The room is spacious and clean and super comfortable. The ground was well-kept and just absolutely beautiful to walk around. Just love everything about this resort and it is my absolute favorite.
