Disney's Polynesian Resort

1600 Seven Seas Dr.
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

Aloha! Step inside this resort and get transported to an island paradise. The lush, tropical foliage and intricate wood and bamboo accents make this one of the best themed resorts on property. Located on the Monorail Resort loop (with stops to Grand Floridian, Magic Kingdom, Contemporary and the TTC), the Poly sits on the white sandy beach of Seven Seas Lagoon right across from the Magic Kingdom. The beach is one of the best places to watch fireworks over the castle, if you're not in the theme park. Along with the Grand Floridian, despite its close proximity to the Magic Kingdom, you are not able to walk to the park. For a fun afternoon, head to the marina and rent a boat to see the resort area in a new way.

You can also find select liquor, beer and wine at Captain Cook's. You are paying for convenience here, so don't expect resonable prices.

Barefoot Pool Bar

This tropical full service bar is located right next to the pool and just steps away from the white sandy beach.

12pm - Magic Kingdom fireworks

Specialty Drinks
Good News! You can get the Lapu Lapu (sans pineapple), Island Sunset and Tropical Macaw from the Tambu Lounge at the Pool Bar! The Backscratcher is unavailable because they don't have the fruit juices needed.

If you're hungry and just want a quick bite, behind the bar in the hotel you'll find Captain Cook's counter service restaurant which serves a limited menu 24 hrs a day. Bonus - you can get a Dole Whip here!

Tropical tiki bars are always a hit with us and this one is no exception. You have a great pool area with a volcano slide and narrow, lush walkways all around the pool. Let's not forget the best part - its white, sandy beach that has a great view of the Magic Kingdom. Curl up with a book, or a loved one, in one of their hammocks and waste away an afternoon. Stick around after the sun goes down and watch the water pagent parade float by and have a nice view of Magic Kingdom's fireworks without having to be in the crowded park.

There is a marina right around the corner from the pool bar where you can rent the little mouse boats, pontoon boats, sailboats and more. Prices in photo as of 8/2012.

A tropical bar calls for tropical drinks to be enjoyed. Thankfully, there's no shortage of that while at the Poly.

Do you like dark beer? How about coffee? Then may we be the first to suggest the unique Pipeline beer. Pipeline's looks are deceiving, the dark amber color may trick you into thinking you're in for a seriously hoppy beer or possibly a very heavy beer like a Guinness but you're in for a surprise. Pipeline is moderately hopped so it's not too bitter and sweet roasted malt combines with a touch of the rich flavor of good coffee to deliver a nicely balanced, yet creatively different beer to your tastebuds. Maybe not the beer for you if Bud Light is your imbibe-ary of choice but its intricacies make it a definite contender if you feel like something different. This is something that we will be craving in the future. Pipeline however, is only available during the "winter" season months.
