Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Tambu Lounge Review

You’ll enjoy this Tropical Oasis located on the second floor of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Lobby.

The Tambu Lounge is conveniently located between the Kona Cafe and ‘Ohana. It’s a great spot to get a fruity drink or your usual favorite.

Disney's Polynesian Village Resort Tambu Lounge Review


This smaller bar has stools wrapping around 3 sides and low comfy chairs off the the side. More comfy seating extends out across the full rear of the building.

During dinner time this area can get quite busy with those awaiting reservations in the two nearby restaurants.
