Aloha lovers! When Walt and Lillian Disney visited Hawaii multiple times in the 1930s and 1940s (before statehood status) Hello, Aloha and Hawaiian Holiday were the “souvenirs.” When they took a romantic vacation to Tahiti, Bora Bora, Papeete and Fifi in the 1960s, their fascination with all things South Seas seemed to be sealed. Disneyland’s Tahitian Terrace and The Enchanted Tiki Room are evidence. But prominent on Walt’s Florida Project drawing board was a Pacific Island get-away; a resort that he wanted to be so much more than a typical hotel. It was to be an escape to the islands that he and Lillian had fallen in love with. I think of them every time I take a stroll through the bamboo tiki torches. This destination is perfectly suited for duos, just like Walt and Lillian! Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for couples is the perfect tropical retreat.
Every inch of this property is covered with lush, tropical foliage. Lava rocks, Polynesian rhythms in the background, the white sand beach, and a waterfall complete the romantic setting.
Whether a Standard View or Lagoon View room, with their warm hues these rooms ooze comfort and casual elegance. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for couples means the Honeymoon Suite is always a consideration! If you are one of the truly fortunates, you will secure one of the twenty over-the-water Bora Bora Bungalows for maximum privacy and magical views of Cinderella Castle, Seven Seas Lagoon, and Wishes; all from your private balcony How’s that for exotic??

Romantic Dining & Entertainment
Share a Dole Whip from the Pineapple Lanai. To truly immerse yourself in your South Seas paradise the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show in Luau Cove is a must. After the show, you can proudly display your lei at the Tambu Lounge and try an after dinner Lapu Lapu.
If a good chuckle is more your desire, then head to the newly opened Trader Sam’s Grogg Grotto and Tiki Terrace for Adventureland kitsch and a libation that comes with its own routine. Uh-Oa for two!
Spend a leisurely day lazing around. The newly modeled Lava Pool is a perfect spot to luxuriate in your surroundings; the zero-entry hot tub and Barefoot Pool Bar easily within reach. If you find the nearby Kikis Tikis Splash Area disrupts your mood, the Polynesian East Pool remains a quiet sanctuary.
Be sure to start your evening with the torch lighting ceremony; held every evening, Tuesday through Saturday at 6 pm. It truly is something special and unique to this resort.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for Couples
To me, nothing says “love” like a moonlight stroll around Seven Seas Lagoon. So does a beach hammock or swing for prime fireworks viewing. But then again, so does a Specialty Cruise (perfect for those pixie dusted proposals guys!), a surrey ride for two, Movies Under the Stars, a sailboat rental, a sprint along the lagoon on the New Balance Jogging Trail… You get the idea- fantasy is everywhere.

The absolute best part of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for couples is this: the sentimental traditions that are tailor made for future anniversary rendezvous.
