Disney's Polynesian Resort

I love the Polynesian! It is my home away from home. The Polynesian is the most beautiful resort on Disney property (strong opinion) and it is truly an authentic, tropical oasis! It was one of the first Disney resorts established along with the Magic Kingdom in 1971. It is on the monorail route, with the Magic Kingdom, Contemporary, Ticket and Transportation Center, and Grand Floridian.


Fiji is one of the best (non-concierge/club level) longhouses. It is in close proximity to almost every attraction at the Polynesian, with the exception of the Ticket and Transportation Center, being a 10 minute walk from this longhouse. The main pool is visible from most rooms in Fiji, as is Space Mountain on the other side of Bay Lake, as well as the Great Ceremonial House from across the marina, just a short walk away from this longhouse. You cannot receive a bad view at the Fiji longhouse!
