History of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Throughout the late 1960s WED Enterprises (Walt Disney Imagineering) drafted plans to create a man-made lake with a lagoon, around which the Magic Kingdom and five resorts would reside; the Asian, the Persian, the Polynesian Village, Tempo Bay Resort, and the Venetian.

The location of The Tempo Bay Resort (Disney’s Contemporary Resort) and the Polynesian (Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort) was no mere accident. Walt personally and intentionally placed these resorts, fashioning Disney’s Contemporary Resort as the backdrop for Tomorrowland, and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort as the backdrop for Adventureland.

One initial concept for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort featured a twelve-story tower, mirroring that of a luxury hotel on Honolulu’s Waikiki Beach. However, by 1970, plans progressed to the architecturally authentic village layout familiar to visitors today.

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort was designed by WED Enterprises (Walt Disney Imagineering), the California architectural firm of Welton Becket & Associates and United States Steel Corp. This dream-team employed a unique building process known as “unitized modular construction.” Construction began as late as February 1971, less than eight months before the first guests were scheduled to arrive.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort opened on October 1, 1971. The Grand Opening ceremony, held on October 24, 1971, featured a stunning luau upon the shores of the lagoon, starring several Polynesian entertainers, as guests dined on a plethora of authentic island fare.

Throughout the years, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has played host to notable guests, such as; Lucille Ball, Bob Hope, John Lennon, Fred MacMurray, and the Disney family.


How do Magic Bands Work at the Resort?

This vibrant wristband is known as “an all-in-one device that effortlessly connects you to all the vacation choices you made with My Disney Experience.”

About Polynesian Village Resort Longhouses

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort divides rooms into eleven longhouses. Each longhouse is unique in size, number of rooms, and is named after islands in the South Pacific.

Tonga Longhouse at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Here is a list of the current longhouses, along with a few facts about what makes them distinctive;

Aotearoa: 415 square feet rooms, offering a selection of Standard, Lagoon and Theme Park views. Aotearoa is the only building at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort with Standard view rooms that face the lagoon. Long walk to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), short distance to the Great Ceremonial House and Luau Cove.

Fiji: 415 square feet rooms, offering both Standard and Marina views. Long walk to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), short distance to the Great Ceremonial House and Luau Cove.

Hawaii: 415 square feet rooms, Club Level rooms, offering Garden views, Lagoon views, Theme Park views. Short walk to the Great Ceremonial House, close proximity to the beach and the pools.

Moorea (DVC): Great Lake views and near Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC).

Niue: 415 square feet rooms, offering 22 Standard view rooms, featuring views of both pools. Close to the Great Ceremonial House and pools. The Niue longhouse is one of the smaller longhouses at the Disney Polynesian Village Resort and is the only one without an elevator.

Tokelau (DVC): Roughly 476 square feet rooms, offering Standard views with views of the lagoon and castle in a few rooms. The Tokelau longhouse is the largest of the longhouses at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Tokelau is centrally located, convenient to the Great Ceremonial House, the pools, the laundry, and is just a short walk to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC).

Tonga: Club Level Suites ranging from the small Honeymoon Suite (385 square feet) to the immense, 2-story, King Kamehameah Suite (1863 square feet).  Intimate and unique, Tonga is the home to all the suites at the Polynesian Village Resort. Tonga is centrally located just outside of the Great Ceremonial House.

Tuvalu: 415 square feet rooms, best non-Club Level Lagoon and Theme Park views but not great Standard views. Practically seated in the Seven Seas Lagoon, the Tuvalu longhouse is the most remote of the longhouses at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. However, it comes with a tradeoff, as this location requires you to walk around the marina to access almost everything except the luau.

Pago Pago (DVC): 415 square feet rooms, close to its own parking lot and Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC).

Rarotonga: 415 square feet, offering pool and monorail views. Rarotonga is considered the best longhouse at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort due to its close proximity to the Great Ceremonial House, pool, laundry, and bus stop.

Samoa: 415 square feet, offering pool views with some views of the lagoon. Much akin to the Rarotonga, the Samoa longhouse at the Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is exceedingly popular due to its close proximity to the Great Ceremonial House, the pool, and the beach.
