Snapshot – Polynesian Village

Snapshot – Polynesian Village

We are beginning a new series on the blog called “Snapshot.”  Periodically we will share an image from a Disney adventure along with a brief story of what this image means to us.

For the first post in this series, we go back in time to 1976…


The Polynesian is currently undergoing significant changes, including regaining its original moniker – the Polynesian Village.  This vintage view from a room’s balcony overlooks the marina, the Contemporary in the distance.  It is from a honeymoon scrapbook that chronicles the beginning of a 38 year marriage.  The title for this page, “Paradise,” sums up what they felt waking up together each morning.  One half of this whole has gone to a better place and we know he’s enjoying his own paradise in the sun.
