Y'all gotta know that I can't go very far talking about Disney resorts without talking about my favorite tropical paradise on the monorail line, the Polynesian! So it should come as no surprise that that's the resort for today's post!
Even the parking lot at the Polynesian makes me happy. That's saying something.
I see Port Cochere swags and wreathes!!
Note how the Christmas green and red becomes awesomely tropical in those hanging baskets with the twirly ferns and red flowers. Also note how I got monorail red whizzing by above. I was kinda proud of that. ;)
Someday I'd like to incorporate longboat oars into my holiday decorating scheme. I just think it'd be fun.
The first of many big beautiful wreaths, this one over the kids' tv area.
No, we're not back at Coronado! But there were some pretty poinsettias at the Poly too!
At the resorts there are always two prime decorated areas: the lobby itself, and the shops!
cool tropical tree.
I LOVE how they dress up the bouTIKI torches!
Look at how pretty that bow and ornament are. It's like the presents in the display are wrapped in presents!
More wreath love! There was just a profusion of delicate tropical flowers, yet somehow they worked perfectly in the wreath and became christmas-y instead of summer-y!
So it's no secret that from the hammocks to the palm trees to the cool closets in the rooms, I want basically everything from the Polynesian. I seriously want this wreath though...it's definitely high up on the list!
The main Christmas tree is around back. It's too bad they don't have the ceiling space to do a really mammoth tree like at other resorts. I do think they could do something in the center on top of the little waterfall feature if they tried though...lol, they need to put me on a Disney decorating team!
More lovely flowers and ornaments!
Hey! It's me!
So the main concentration of holiday swag is in the Grand Ceremonial House, and I just have two last photos to share...
On the left, don't know if you can see it, but probably the largest Christmas tree at the Polynesian is not in a public area...it's secreted away upstairs in the concierge lounge, where they do have the vertical space for it! It looks really pretty all lit up at night. And to the right, a few wreaths at Captain Cook's.
Well, here's wishing, oh by golly, you all have a holly, jolly, POLY Christmas!
