Aloha! We have returned from a wonderful (and much needed) vacation at Walt Disney World. As promised, I have put together a room tour of our lake view deluxe studio at Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows. We were fortunate enough to obtain a room with a spectacular view of not only Cinderella’s Castle and Space Mountain, but the Grand Floridian and The Contemporary too!
Our room was located on the third floor of the Moorea longhouse. While this longhouse is not the closest to the Great Ceremonial Longhouse (resort lobby and main pool), it does provide you with quick access to the Ticket and Travel Center. We found the most direct route to and from the Magic Kingdom for us was to use the ferries at the TTC.
The room itself was very clean, but it did show signs of minor wear and tear from the last three years (mostly just build up of soap residue on bathroom fixtures). We had the first few nights to ourselves while my brother, his wife, and infant son joined us on the third night. We managed to sleep 4 adults, a child, and an infant in the room with no problems.
If you tend to run cold like I do, I recommend bringing some warm pajamas for your stay. The beds have a sheet and thin blanket (no thick comforter). Even my husband and Lil’ Man were a bit chilly at night. You will see in the video that the room is not very bright. We had every available light turned on during filming. Like Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, these rooms have a darker decor and do not light up as brightly as those you would find at other resorts like Disney’s Beach Club.
Despite a few minor flaws, we enjoyed our stay at our home resort. The Polynesian offered a peaceful respite from the park crowds. We have tons of footage from our trip, so I will be posting a resort tour and review of the Poly in the near future.
