Polynesian Theme Park View

I know there are at least 2 longhouses with a Theme Park View at the Poly. I want to request the one closest to the TTC. Stayed there in 2006 and it was so convenient. Does anyone know the name of it?

Try Tikiman's website - Site Temporarily Unavailable - however you may have to wait a couple of days. Tikiman (Steve) told me that at the end of each month the site is often down because it cannot sustain the number of hits it gets - or something along those very technical computer lines. There's nothing you won't find about the POLY here.

Tahiti is correct. We had a MK view room there and it was FABULOUS!

The access to the TTC was wonderful, and it wasn't really all that far from the Great Ceremonial House.

We had a castle view room only it wasn't Tahiti, it was a long name I can't remember; starts with an N? Only problem I have with Poly is I am very tall and the showers are only at about 5 feet 8 inches!

We had a theme park view and it was Tahiti....the view was great and that was about it as far as that longhouse was concerned.

Yes it is Tahiti...I went ahead and requested it. It's so much easier to just walk to the TTC and hit the monorails from there. And about the same distance to the Grand Ceremonial House. Thanks everyone!

Yes Tahiti is right next to the path to the TTC. The 3 longhouses with Magic Kingdom View rooms are Tahiti, Tuvalu and Aotearoa. The rest all have garden view rooms except Hawaii (concierge) and Tonga (concierge suites).

Tahiti use to be called Moorea - but they changed the names several years ago.

Tahiti is definitely the closest with a lagoon view/MK.

now Rapa Nui is close too - but it is only garden view.
