Polynesian Village of 1976

Polynesian Village of 1976

The Polynesian Village was one of two original resorts that opened with the Magic Kingdom in 1971.  Located on the shore of Seven Seas Lagoon, the tropical retreat fits in wonderfully with the Florida sunshine.

The photos in this post were taken in the late summer of 1976.  All photos belong to Tom’s parents, who planned to visit for 1 night on their honeymoon.  They loved it so much, they added a second night.  Each night cost $50 plus $2 tax.
