The vanity and shower are in one space, while the toilet is separated by another sliding door.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-19-5629581

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-18-9279299
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-17-4025561

The vanity has two basins and a small amount of storage. A hairdryer is located on the shelves beneath the vanity. The panels are not cabinet doors, they are for accessing the plumbing.

A variety of Disney H20 products are provided, including a vanity kit, shower cap, mouthwash, body lotion, and bar soap.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-12-6376398

Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are provided from large dispensers affixed to the wall. There is also a shaving ledge (one of the smallest we’ve seen).

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-15-2645497

There’s a small shelf for your own toiletries.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-14-9583191

Even the tile in the shower is themed.

image-from-ios-2-5099666

The toilet is behind another sliding door.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-21-5499545

If you’ve seen a room tour from us before, you know we love toilet art. It really livens up an otherwise bland space.

The bedroom has two queen beds and a day bed.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-41-5577152

Even the vent cover is themed!

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-3-3449900

The main light fixture features some of the same Polynesian-style patterns.

Beautiful “Moana” art hangs on the wall by the beds.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-74-6052566
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-72-4180522

Themed sconces provide additional light. A small counter serves as a nightstand on the far sides of the beds. Outlets are provided above, making it the perfect place to charge your phone overnight. To the left of the sconce on the headboard frame, you will find a built-in reading light.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-68-8866965

Benches for extra seating or storage are placed at the end of each bed.

The bedding looks plain from afar, but upon closer inspection, more geometric patterns decorate the fabric.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-11-9746228

A floral bolster adds a burst of color to the bedding. Bedrunners may not have made a comeback, but we’re happy to see decorative pillows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-71-8477502

The headboards are patterned with geometric shapes in ovals reminiscent of canoes.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-69-6563017
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-70-1628628

The headboards have embellishments shaped like the Heart of Te Fiti.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-8-3573789

A nightstand with a drawer and cabinet sits between the two queen beds.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-9-7190769

Additional outlets and ports are available (including USB and USB-C)

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-10-9899866
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-27-3629815

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-12-7901913

A chair and ottoman sit to the side of the beds nearest the windows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-15-6770190

Above the chair is a very neat lamp whose shade is decorated with various “Moana” characters. Here we can see Maui, Te Fiti, and a Kakamora.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-14-5325919

On another side are Pua, Moana, and Hei Hei.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-13-3603422

Moana’s father, Chief Tui, is on another side, as well as Tamatoa and Gramma Tala.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-28-2590386

Wall art over the television and daybed depicts Moana and Maui in the style of Maui’s tattoos.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-26-9812284

Our room was a connected room with a door beside the television.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-19-7333087

The day bed, which doubles as a sofa, is a deep blue with orange throw pillows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-4-8793637
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-20-8876066

Both pillows have Polynesian art in shades of orange. One features an octopus.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-21-8454634

Another shows a sea turtle.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-6-5310735

Instructions for the daybed are attached for your convenience.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-63-2332066

We had some trouble getting the back panel to fold down. You will need two hands to hold the lever down and pull on the straps. The bed itself is fairly comfortable.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-62-8835901

Bedding is provided in the closet by the entry, and you can request extra bedding as needed.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-49-2558433

A small end table with a lamp sits between the sofa and the TV. The curved design flows well with the room.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-25-9410877
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-23-9561188

A closer look at the wall art shows Maui and Moana.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-51-3780932

The television stand has three drawers for additional storage. A large Samsung TV is mounted above.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-53-6527024
disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-52-8526722

More outlets and ports are available here as well.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-54-2445816

A receptacle for trash and recycling is next to the television.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-24-5964147

A different style of sconce is mounted beside the windows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-16-9254372

The curtains are shades of white and blue that match well with the rest of the decor.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-18-7468794

Tropical flowers and spirals resembling the Heart of Te Fiti are patterned on the curtains.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-17-2590283

Two small tables are available beside the windows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-46-8377244

We had a theme park view, offering stunning sights.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-60-7591239

Out the windows, we could see Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-59-2081952

We also spotted the dock for the water taxi to the Magic Kingdom and some of Disney’s Polynesian Bungalows.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-57-8386439

We also had a view of two of the islands on the Seven Seas Lagoon.

disneys-polynesian-village-resort-moana-room-tour-58-6414190

We were pleasantly surprised by how much we like the rooms. They’re modern without being bland. The “Moana” theming isn’t overwhelming, but adds a subtle Disney touch. We hate to encourage more IP updates, but the Polynesian really needed an update and it looks great.

Watch our full room tour below.

I see they’ve taken out the tub. This is a redesign that it is supposed to appeal to families and they remove something that families with small children actually need. I just don’t get it.

I did notice in another vlog that surprisingly there was a tub in a newly renovated room. Perhaps you can request this feature.

Overall, it looks pretty good. Not as in your face as The incredible will be or the Hotel New York where it looks like Stan Lee and Hulk threw up on each other.

First off, I loved the movie Moana and the Poly has always been our absolute favorite resort. That said, the walls/carpets in the hallways and common areas are horrific. The overly bright and busy patters are jarring. I know they were going for the island theme, but they quite overdid it. The rooms are well done, the bathrooms are beautiful, but again, the fabrics on the furnishings are garish and unharmonious. We are going there in April. Hopefully, it looks better in person.

First of all, thank you TO ALL who write their articles on a daily basis herein this blog. I truly appreciate all of your hard work and continued dedication. My family and I enjoy all of the insight and helpful information that really makes our visits to Walt Disney World so enjoyable each and every time.

Getting back to the topic here……I like the updates made here at Disney’s Polynesian Resort! The color pallets and textures really seem to thematically harmonize with the entire space. I look forward to taking my family there next year!

Although I miss the dark Poly Pop vibe of the older and DVC rooms, I love the “sand” coloring and beach bleached wood accents, which still are very appropriate. You are right about the theme not being overdone, it’s just right. There is an architectural phrase for this and that is ‘having a sense of place”. Disney accomplishes this well.

All rooms, or just a part of the resort?

All non-DVC regular rooms.
