DVC & Polynesian

That is what they say to you when you arrive at Disney World and belong to the Disney Vacation Club.   We spent most of last week at Disney World and stayed at our home resort -The Polynesian!
We could NEVER afford the Polynesian without our DVC membership.  It allows us to go twice a year and stay in a top resort on the monorail.     If you stay in a monorail resort, you can jump on and ride directly to the Magic Kingdom  OR  ride to the ticket and transportation center and ride a monorail to Epcot.  

We enjoyed time in Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios.  The Beauty and the Beast show is my favorite at the Studios.

Mom usually is on her scooter and they set us up in the first row.   What a view!   The singing and acting is wonderful!

It is interesting getting to the Polynesian Resort.  You go through the Magic Kingdom gates (to the left) and announce you are heading to the Poly.  They will happily send you on your way.    When you arrive you are treated like, well,  like a princess!  It is beautiful with all the plants and gas torches.  Waterfalls and ponds surround you.  In you go to the lobby and a lei will be placed around your neck.   

I believe the room is the largest of DVC rooms throughout Disney World.  It will sleep 5.  

The Disney Bungalows are on the water and sleep 8.  But the points needed!!  WOW!!  It might world out for 2 families to share.

The rooms we stay in have 2 bathrooms.   One has a sink and a shower with the rain shower head.  Oh my goodness!  I have to remind myself that water is expensive!

This cabinet opens up into a single bed.   Best for children. 

Some great reasons to stay at the Polynesian:
  • On the monorail.
  • Restaurant Kona Cafe is upstairs.
  • Ohana's is a popular restaurant upstairs.
  • Pools are easy to get to and wonderfully fun to use.
  • Tikki gas torches are wonderful at night to create a tropical mood.
  • You can see the Castle across the water and watch the fireworks.
  • The evening light boat parade goes right past the Polynesian.
  • One of two places that you can purchase the famous Disney World Pineapple Dole Whip ice cream.
  • You also can take a boat to the Magic Kingdom.

We love going to Disney and still have not seen everything so each time we go we like to add a few new things to our agenda.

Other than that, all is great here.  The weather is sunny in the upper 70's.  Can't use the pool yet because the water is too cold.   Dad is making a table for Mom to keep items next to the bed.  She wanted a couple drawers in it so he is out in the garage - either building or chatting to the many people that stop by.
Take care!
