Are you headed to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in January? Here is a look at the Recreation Activities you can find at the resort during your stay as we kick off 2022.
Disney Resort Accommodations
The theme parks are the main draw of a Disney vacation, but many guests enjoy spending some time at their resort. It can be nice to take a “day off” from the parks or enjoy some time in between park visits to enjoy a resort’s accommodations.
Disney resorts also offer many recreation options for guests to take advantage of, and many are free! There are a variety of activities offered that appeal to all ages as well.
The last year and a half has featured many refurbishments around the Polynesian resort. There are new Moana rooms, DVC refurbishments, and club level enhancements. In addition there was a new arrival experience and water features (like the one pictured above) added to the front entrance. The links above can get you caught up.
Here is a look at the January recreation schedule for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Welcome to 2022!
