Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort | Walt Disney World Resort
We highly recommend the Theme Park View Club Level rooms. This Club Level Lounge is another favorite of ours. The location with a view of Cinderella’s Castle in the distance and daily offerings to delight your tastebuds. A DisneyWorld favorite.

A second expansion took place in 1985, with the construction of two additional longhouses. In that same year, the resort adopted the shortened name “Disney’s Polynesian Resort”.
