Are you headed to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in February? Here is a look at the Recreation Activities you can find at the resort during your stay, including some new special events as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
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 February recreation schedule for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, including some new special activities for the 50th Anniversary Celebration!
