This article shares a preview of Christmas at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, including holiday decorations and the resort’s beautiful tropical Christmas tree.
Mele Kalikimaka, or better yet, Aloha, from Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Christmas is already in full swing at the Polynesian this holiday season, and we’re always happy to see the tropical decor! Most will agree that a stay at Disney’s Polynesian Resort equates to the ultimate vacation experience at Walt Disney World.
Between the peaceful vibes and tropical grounds, the resort is unlike any other. But at Christmastime, Disney’s Polynesian offers a festive look reminiscent of what you might expect from the Pacific Ocean Islands. From florals to fruit, the Poly’s Christmas decor is in a class of its own.

We’ll start at the front entrance to the Polynesian’s Great Ceremonial House. A paved walkway leads up to a bridge that crosses over to the lobby doors.
This is an area where guests tend to linger. Each side of the entrance has planters filled with tropical flowers and gorgeous greenery. At night, Tiki torches light the way.
During the holiday season, poinsettias are added to the beds for a touch of Christmas. Here are a few photos:
Several wreaths feature tropical decor and light globes suspended in fishermen’s nets.
At the front door, you’re greeted by a beautiful holiday display.
Cheerful planters decked out in holiday colors welcome you to Disney’s Polynesian.
Inside, you’ll see a splash of holiday decor here and there. It is true that the resort is more subtly decorated than others during Christmas. But the Polynesian has an exceptionally unique vibe. So, it only needs a gentle dusting of Christmas to pull things off.
Everything works well together.
The almost two-story tree sits toward the front corner of the lobby near Boutiki.
If you take the time to inspect the tree, you’ll notice it’s accented with gorgeous ornaments.
Here are a few photos of the ornaments:
The iconic Tiki statue in the lobby’s center is the perfect place to get a photo. A PhotoPass photographer is usually out near the tree during the evening to take photos of guests during the holidays.
