Polynesian Village Resort in the Evening

Polynesian Village Resort in the Evening at Walt Disney World

As the sun was setting, the Polynesian Village Resort and the Contemporary Resort were reflected in the waters of Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World.

After we had visited Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, we walked from there to the Polynesian Village Resort (still then known as the Polynesian Resort), enjoying the nice evening weather and the lack of rain that had often been present on our trip. It was a good evening to be out, and the views were nice, too.

I don’t know how much this view will be affected by the new bungalows that are still under construction, but as this is on the far side of the Polynesian Village, I would think that the building here blocks most of the view. I also got the feeling that the walking path between the Wedding Pavilion and the Polynesian Village doesn’t get all that much traffic, which is fine with me, as we like out-of-the-way kinds of experiences.

Also, looking at this brings back memories of the old days when swimming was allowed in Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. We swam a few times at the beach at Fort Wilderness, and we lived to tell about it. I know they are concerned about bacteria in the water, which can be controlled much more easily in a swimming pool, but there was still something nice about swimming in a natural body of water.

I wonder about the popularity of these beaches these days. I’m not a big fan of getting a tan, so I don’t see the need to visit the beaches at any of the resorts now, except to enjoy the view across the water. But at least the view here is quite nice.
