During my first trip to WDW I remember traveling on the monorail and going by the Poly and thinking to myself, "Eww. Why would anyone want to stay there? It looks like big brown buildings. I don't get it."
Then I actually went to the Polynesian for dinner when I was 17 with my family. I walked in the doors and before me was this lush, tropical atrium. I could hear the polynesian music playing all around me. I was sucked in! Finally, I understood what the big deal was.
For those of you that haven't been to the Polynesian, here are some amazing photographs.
This is what you see as you walk through the lower level doors.
A beautiful view of the atrium from the second story.
Boats of all kinds are available to rent right at the resort.
The beautiful beach at the Polynesian Resort.
The volcano pool has a slide and as well as an amazing view of the Magic Kingdom.
There is a quiet pool at the Poly as well.I just can't believe I get to spend 8 nights at this... my dream resort.
