There is much to do at the Polynesian but some love to shop and there are some nice things to browse or buy. Browsing the Polynesian shops is sort of like shopping in Adventurland but with much better food options close by.
Many guests from other resorts take a trip over to the Polynesian just to shop.
There use to be a few different stores. A few of them were combined and put into one large store called BouTiki. BouTiki has gifts with a tropical feel and items for the whole family. There is even many items with the Polynesian logo available. There are sections of the store that have Disney character wear and some more expensive items like Tommy Bahama and Quicksilver. BouTIki is open from 8- 11 PM.
Also on the first floor of the GCH is Wyland Galleries. Wyland is well known around the world, especially in Maui and the other Hawaiian Islands. Discover the beautiful fine art ocean paintings and other ocean art by marine life artist, Wyland. Whether you're looking for whale art, dolphin art, sculptures, or other marine art.
Trader Jack's Exotic Imports & Native Exports
On the second floor is Trader Jack's Exotic Imports & Native Exports. There is plenty of Disney Character merchandise in this store as well as gifts, toys and stamps. Trader Jack's is open from 8-11 PM.
There is a pin trading cart located just outside Trader Jack's next to the exit from the monorail.
The last store located on the second floor next to Trader Jack's almost belongs on the Food Page. Samoa Snacks is where you can buy Sundries, liquors, wines, beer, juices, sodas and snacks, but I put it with the shopping because you can get newspapers, magazines, stamps, paperbacks, kitchen items and sun tan lotion. Samoa Snacks is open from 8-11 PM.
