Monorail to Disney
The Disney Polynesian Resort in Orlando, Florida is a really nice resort. The resort is basically right next to Disney World. You can actually ride the monorail to Disney and be there in minutes directly from the Polynesian Resort.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort feels like you are on a relaxing island vacation in Hawaii filled with lush plants, lagoons, and more from the moment you step on to the property. The resort offers an included Disney’s Magical Express bus from the airport. They have an area for beach volleyball and a sandy beach area to lounge at overlooking Disney World off in the distance.
The entrance of the Disney Polynesian Resort is beautiful. Before you enter the building there are beautiful waterfalls, tiki luau’s and a little bridge to walk across to get to the entrance. As you walk into the main entrance you are welcomed with the beauty and feeling of being in Hawaii or a tropical island.
The Disney Polynesian Resort has so many great restaurants to choose from. They have the Spirit of Aloha, which is a dinner show. This is amazing. You really feel like you are in Hawaii. The Barefood Pool bar is great to go to if you are looking to get drinks by the pool and enjoy the view. Captain Cooks is great if you are looking for a quick, but tasty meal. Trader Sam’s is a bar that has a nice tropical feel. Kona Cafe is a great place to eat as well. Ohana is is a really nice place to eat overlooking the resort. It’s pretty cool because Lilo and Stitch come around to the tables and you can get their autograph and take pictures with them.
There are 2 pools at the resort and you can swim in them until 11 pm. The one closest to the entrance was more like a traditional pool. The other pool was really neat. It was a volcano pool with a slide. You can go up the stairs in the back of the volcano and come down the slide. This pool was very nice. I couldn’t get any great pictures from the front because there were people alway coming down the slide and in the pool. As we walked around the resort there were speakers playing beautiful island music. It was very pretty and peaceful.
It is so nice to return back to this island-themed oasis after a day full of fun with Mickey Mouse and the gang. This resort is a total bliss. I highly recommend checking it out.
