Location of Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows
Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows can be found at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort – one of the resorts connected to Magic Kingdom by monorail, and directly across the Seven Seas Lagoon. The studios were converted from hotel rooms in the Pago Pago, Moorea, and Tokelau buildings. The bungalows are nestled on the sandy banks of the Lagoon.

Dining options at Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows

Counter Service and Snacks
Captain Cooks – food court style
Kona Island – for snacks and drinks
Tambu Lounge – bar next to Ohana
Barefoot Bar – poolside bar serving drinks and snacks
Kona Cafe – mixes an Asian twist with American meals, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you go for brekkie, make sure you try their famous tonga toast – fried french toast stuffed with bananas and topped with sugar and cinnamon.
‘Ohana – meaning ‘family’ in Hawaiin. offering Family Style meals – i.e. they put a big platter of everything on your table and you all help yourself and if you run out of anything, just ask and they’ll bring you more of it. They are open for a regular dinner in this style, or for a character breakfast with Lilo and Stitch.
Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show – a family style meal offering amidst a luau with hula dancing and fire eating, located in Luau Cove. This is a pretty noisy show and you might hear it in the evenings if you’re in a nearby longhouse.
Transport to and from Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows
The monorail is a huge benefit to this resort and will take you right from your hotel to the doors of Magic Kingdom. Or you have the option of a boat across the Seven Seas Lagoon to get to Magic Kingdom. The monorail will also take you to the Grand Floridian and Contemporary if you have dining reservations at these hotels; a real advantage as they have some great restaurants and no other Disney transport goes between resorts so directly.
You can also take the monorail to Epcot but you need to transfer to a different monorail at the Transportation and Ticket Centre. If you don’t want to change trains, you can also walk to the Transporation and Ticket Centre, and just get the one monorail from there.
Disney buses will take you from the front of your hotel to all of the other parks, water parks and Disney Springs.
Good to know
- One of the few villa resorts connected to a hotel, that has its own concierge and lobby.
- Access to a leisure area (including BBQ pit) next to the spa.
- A covered walkway links the Villas to the main Grand Floridian building.
