Party at the Polynesian!

3 Jan

A few weeks ago, we were invited to our first birthday party at Walt Disney World.

I have to be honest, that when I read the invitation and it said that the party would be at the Never Land Club at the Polynesian I freaked out a bit. I mean who has birthday party at Walt Disney World? But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense!

The birtday party lasted for two hours, and there was never a shortage of things to do!!! During the party, the kids had free reign over the club where they could play dress-up, play Wii or Playstation, color, and could even play in the nursery from Peter Pan.

Here is the sign showing that Never Land Club would be closed.

The party was also “hosted” by two cast members who greeted and directed party guests, led activities and crafts, served the food, and did all the general party duties.

During the party Mickey and Minnie hung out with the kids, and Zoe had a ton of fun coloring with Mickey.

Included in the cost of the party in the basic package ($34 per child with a minimum of 10 children) is Use of the Never Land Club for two hours, Lunch (Two slices of pizza per child), Drinks (Juice Boxes), Birthday cake, Goody Bags, Decorations, A cast member led activity/craft, Disney video (shown during lunch), and Disney video games. If you want to kick your party up a notch, you can upgrade to the Premium level ($69 per child, with a minimum of 10 children). At the Premium Level you get everything in the basic package plus a visit from a character for one hour (broken into two 30 minute sets). If you would like extra characters, it is an additional $400.

There are six party themes with characters available to visit during each one…

  • Luau – Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy
  • Mickey/Minnie – Mickey and Minnie
  • Pirate  – Captain Hook, Smee, Peter Pan, Wendy, Mickey, and Minnie
  • Princess – Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Aurora, Snow White, and Mulan
  • Sports – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy
  • Tinker Bell – Tinker Bell, Mickey, and Minnie

Birthday Parties can be booked a few weeks in advance by calling (407) WDW-BDAY.

I have to say that this was an AMAZING experience that we will all remember for quite some time!!! 

I hope you enjoy the pictures!!!

    I have to admit — we probably spend that much (the basic level) per child for a party at one of those inflatable places so if I had to choose, I’d pick WDW too!
