Updated Polynesian Village Resort

Monday, November 30, 2015
When we disembarked the boat in Orlando we boarded a bus to the Polynesian which would be our home away from home for the next two nights. It definitely helped temper the "cruise is over" blues knowing we had a couple more days of Disney fun in store.

We are Disney Vacation Club members which means we can stay on WDW property on our points. Our home resort is Animal Kingdom Lodge which is beautiful, but we are having fun using our points elsewhere as well and exploring all the different DVC properties.

We were so stoked when we came off the waitlist to get our two night stay at the Polynesian Village. Because number one it is on the monorail and number two it is finishing up a long renovation and the rooms are all new and shiny.

The lobby of the Great Ceremonial House is stunning and has the coolest lanterns hanging from the ceiling. The area is all opened up now and you can literally see Cinderella's castle through the back windows when you walk in.

We didn't take nearly enough pictures of the resort. To busy just taking it all in. We loved the DVC studio rooms. First off they have two bathrooms. In a standard hotel room. One has a bath, sink and toilet. The other has a shower and a sink. Awesome for getting multiple people bathed and ready to go at night or in the morning.

The rest of the room is beautiful but pretty typical of what you can expect from a DVC studio. I love what they have done with the new color palettes to lighten up the furnishings and linens.

Except there is the cutest little pull down bed under the TV. Perfect for a Perry-sized human (or even a bigger kid). Perry loved having a bed of his own that appeared from the wall. It has a sweet Lilo and Stich theme painted on the side and a little light that the child can control.

P was a fan. I heard him fall out once, but he climbed right back in bed without waking up. We told him not to get used to that level of freedom because he is still sleeping in a crib at home.

Despite one bad night of transportation...where the boats and monorail were backed up till Kingdom come...we loved our brief stay at the Poly.
