This iconic resort offers rooms inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana.” Spectacular room views are available at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and rooms can sleep up to five adults, with suites sleeping up to eight adults. Need more room for your party? Disney’s Polynesian Bungalows are the perfect solution.

And with washers and dryers, can you say no laundry when you return home?

Tip: A stay at the overwater Bungalows is highly recommended. The gentle sound of water around you will give you a great night’s sleep after a busy day in the parks!

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort definitely does not disappoint when it comes to dining. Let’s start with two words … Tonga Toast. This divine delicacy and many other tasty items can be found at Kona Café, which offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Another guest favorite is ‘Ohana. Located in the Great Ceremonial House, this restaurant offers family style meals with a uniquely themed dining experience. Quick service is available at Capt. Cook’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And oh yeah, you can get Tonga Toast here too! However, we can’t talk about food and beverages at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort without mentioning Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.

An island oasis would not be complete without water, so how about two amazing pools? Get ready for a splashing good time at the Lava Pool, complete with a towering volcano, waterfall, and 142-foot-long waterslide! The zero-depth entry to the pool will have you feeling like you are truly at the beach. Tranquility more your speed? Be sure to grab a chair and your favorite book at the Oasis Pool. This is the perfect pool to unwind and relax.

Tip: In the evening, visit the Pineapple Lanai to grab a yummy DOLE Whip treat before taking a seat on the beach for a beautiful view of the nighttime fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park.
