This South Seas-themed Polynesian Village opened more than 45 years ago as one of Disney World’s original hotels, and recent renovations have made the AAA 4-Diamond resort a great choice for travelers.

New additions to the 25-acre property include a volcano pool with a 140-foot waterslide and a revamped lobby with a three-story atrium. Koi ponds are scattered between thickets of palm trees and hammocks support napping guests along the torch-lit walkways connecting the thatched roofed buildings. Cinderella’s Castle is visible from the lake’s beach and is the perfect place for guests to watch the nightly Electric Water Pageant sail past the grounds.

In the evenings, hula dancers perform at luaus alongside fire dancers and a buffet dinner. Visitors can rub shoulders with Mickey and the gang at a character breakfast and fill up any time of day at one of the property’s many restaurants. The resort offers a supervised kids club and free outdoor movie screenings. The hotel has two pools, an outdoor lounge and bar offering poolside service and a spa. Visitors can rent boats, roast marshmallows at the campfire, fish on a catch-and-release excursion or work up a sweat on the property’s sand volleyball court. The new Trader Sam's Grog Grotto is very popular for adults who want to kick back with a tiki cocktail.

Accommodations are laid out in two- and three-story longhouses, each named for a tropical island in the South Pacific. The recent renovations added 20 bungalows balancing on stilts above the lagoon and offering incredible views of the Magic Kingdom. Even standard rooms at this family-friendly resort comfortably accommodate five guests and feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers.

Located on the monorail, the property is less than 20 minutes from Magic Kingdom and Epcot. The property also offers free water taxis and buses to the theme parks as well as roundtrip airport transportation.
