Disney Polynesian Resort Christmas 2021


Every corner of Walt Disney World seems to have unique and themed holiday magic. The Polynesian resort brings its own special something to the season with Hawaiian flair. This resort goes a little lighter on Christmas decor than Disney Vacation Club resorts but still has a special seasonal glow throughout the entrance and lobby. Let’s take a look at Disney Polynesian Resort Christmas 2021 decorations.

Disney Polynesian Resort Christmas 2021

Guests can say aloha to Christmas time as they are greeted with pretty garlands in the Polynesian porte cochere. This resort had some extensive renovations over the last year or so including a fresh look for much of the entrance area and exterior above the lobby. It still has the same beautiful style and, of course, smell of the ‘Ohana grill goodness inviting you in. There is a large Christmas tree in the Polynesian resort lobby with ornaments inspired by the islands. Pineapples, fish and garnishes in natural textures cover this tree that’s lit in warm white and orange lights. Tropical flowers that look like orchids and crotons bring this tree to life. Look closely for the intricate details of carved and woven ornaments.

Mele kalikimaka is the thing to say in the resort shop BouTiki. While the Polynesian doesn’t have a fancy holiday goods stand or gingerbread house there are still some seasonal treats to be found. The BouTiki has boxes of Honolulu Cookie Company shortbread cookies in packaging decorated like gingerbread houses. It’s a little something special to bring back to your dog sitter or, let’s be honest, to eat in the room. Remember to visit the DVC resort next door. The Grand Floridian Christmas treats and gingerbread house display are just a short walk or one monorail stop away from the Polynesian. BouTiki actually has some really nice decor with fun glittery bulbs and big, beautiful garlands. The window display for this shop has some sparkly ornaments to complement the 50th anniversary visuals. Walt Disney World is celebrating 50 magical years and so is the Polynesian Resort specifically as it also opened on October 1st, 1971.
