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

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
