Earlier this year I had the exciting opportunity to stay at the new Polynesian Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. The Bungalows are one of the newest additions to the Disney Resorts, and I’ve gotta say they’re pretty top notch.
Each Bungalow is its own little tiki hut over the water of Seven Seas Lagoon, with a master bedroom (king) and attached bathroom, second bedroom (queen) and separate bathroom, full living room with additional sleepers (to sleep up to eight adults in total), full kitchen, spacious dining area and laundry room equip with a washer and dryer.
Access to the Bungalow’s deck is granted through the master bedroom or through the sliding glass doors of the living room. I especially loved this feature, as I got to sleep in the master. The deck includes a plunge pool to cool off during Florida’s hot summer days, a full set of patio furniture for ultimate relaxation and outdoor dining, and a view of Cinderella’s castle.
The Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks show can be seen from the deck and heard through the Bungalow’s personal speakers. (Another one of my favorite parts!)
Our Bungalow was closest to the ferry boats at the Ticket & Transportation Center, which is perfect for traveling to the Magic Kingdom.
This trip was extra special for me because Disney’s Polynesian is where my family and I stayed every year before we moved to Florida. My parents always booked us a room on the first floor, in the same building. Of course I’ve visited the hotel to hang out and grab a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar, but I haven’t been a guest since my parents bought our house. I was at a breakfast with Captain Hook in this hotel when they signed the papers. It was always home away from home, before it became home.
Disney’s Polynesian Bungalows range from $2,000-$3,000 per night and can be booked online HERE.
