Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Great Ceremonial House lobby
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a Deluxe Resort, conveniently located just a monorail ride away from the Magic Kingdom. It is also a short walk from the Ticket & Transportation Center, making it easy to catch the Epcot monorail. The Polynesian Village Resort is one of the original Walt Disney World Resorts, and it opened in 1971 along with the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. It was built in the same modular construction style as the Contemporary.

Rooms are decorated with Hawaiian touches
The Poly, as it is affectionately called by some, consists of several buildings or "longhouses" named Tuvalu, Fiji, Aotearoa, Tonga, Hawaii, Samoa, Niue, Rarotonga, Tokelau, Moorea and Pago Pago. There are standard rooms, concierge rooms and Disney Vacation Club studios, villas and bungalows available. The Polynesian’s newest additions are the Bora Bora Bungalows, located along the Seven Seas Lagoon. Standard rooms sleep 5 with 2 queen beds and a day bed. Rooms at the Polynesian Village Resort are decorated in serene, earthy colors with Hawaiian touches.

Kona Cafe
There are several excellent dining options at the Polynesian Village Resort. Capt. Cook's is a quick service restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner, located on the first floor of the Great Ceremonial House. ‘Ohana and Kona Café are both full service restaurants located on the second floor of the Great Ceremonial House. ‘Ohana is a popular choice for both breakfast and dinner as breakfast is a character meal served family style and dinner is an all you can eat feast. Kona Café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is the home of the famous Tonga Toast.

Spikey Pineapple from Trader Sam's
There are two pool bars, the Oasis Pool Bar and Barefoot Pool Bar. The Tambu Lounge is located by ‘Ohana and serves the Lapu Lapu, or the “drink in the pineapple.” The Pineapple Lanai is where you can find the infamous Dole Whip and rounding out the food and beverage offerings is Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, a fun and unique experience new to Walt Disney World. Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Show also finds its home at the Polynesian Village Resort, and is a fun dinner show for all ages. You can also walk to the nearby Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and enjoy their dining locations.

Recreational opportunities are available at the Polynesian Village Resort. Boats are available to rent, and there are 2 large swimming pools-one of which includes a hot tub, slide and splash pad. There is beach volleyball, a jogging trail, movies under the stars, and a nightly campfire. At Lilo’s Playhouse, guests ages 3-12 can enjoy activities while their parents have a quiet dinner.

From the time you walk into the newly renovated Great Ceremonial House to your first breakfast at Kona Café to your evening stop at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, you won’t regret choosing Disney’s Polynesian Village for your next Disney vacation.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The décor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
