Top 10 Disney Resorts and Hotels: Disney's Polynesian Resort
It’s okay if you’re not familiar with Disney’s Lilo and Stitch – you will be when you experience the unforgettable Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show at our No. 3 Top 10 Disney Resorts and Hotels choice, Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Lush flora, thatched roofs and lively koi ponds set the stage for your Disney encounter at this Lake Buena Vista destination. It sits next to the Seven Seas Lagoon and across from the Magic Kingdom, giving you a quick escape to Cinderella’s Castle – but we bet you won’t want to escape from this tropical dream very fast. Meander through more than 75 different indigenous plant species adorning the inside of the Great Ceremonial House – built to resemble a royal Tahitian assembly lodge.
While grass skirts aren’t required, you’ll definitely feel the spirit of the South Pacific move your hips with the authentic drum beats and chants at the famed dinner show. This Polynesian welcoming of the night includes a dazzling torch-lighting ceremony and an impressive fire-knife dance – and of course, a delicious Tahitian feast!
