This was my 5th trip to Disney, but I had never been to Kona. I had heard lots of hype about it, especially the "Tonga Toast." So on our most recent trip, we made sure to get reservations there for breakfast. I'm SO disappointed that...More

It's painful to write a negative review for this iconic eatery at the Poly. We've been eating at the Kona practically since it opened. A recent visit confirmed what we thought on the last two visits, the Kona cafe has given up. The employees look...More

Two thick slices of sourdough bread, sandwiching banana slices, dipped in a cinnamon-y batter, fried to perfection and served with a strawberry compote. You're welcome.

I will start by saying the service was not as great as usual. They seemed a little "off" and were not working as a team. Even with this, the meal was fantastic! We brought guests from New England and my friend's mother. The sushi was...More

We always order the Tonga Toast and an order of the pork shoulder and share each. Service is always quick and only a few steps away from the monorail

My husband and I are on the dining plan, but I thought that we could eat here one morning for breakfast and pay out of pocket. We don't want to eat too much for breakfast since we have so much food on the dining plan already. Normally, we just split a breakfast plate, but I wasn't sure if that was allowed here. Does anyone know if we would be able to just order one order of tonga toast and a couple of drinks?

I am hosting a birthday dinner here, for 16. We have a dinner reservations at 6:50, but we are all supposed to be in front of Epcot by 8:00PM, for an escort to our 8:30PM dessert party (They will wait for us out by the flagpole, so maybe there will be a few minutes of leeway?). Can anyone tell me if this is even remotely feasible, or am I crazy to think we could order, be served, eat, and get to the flag pole in 70 minutes (or so)? How about if I arrange for taxi vans to take us over? Does that change anything? Help! Thanks.

Dine in the evening on delicacies such as a selection of fresh fish, grilled ginger-crusted ribeye steak or coconut almond chicken.As you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this Polynesian restaurant, feast your eyes across the onstage open pastry kitchen that prepares divine desserts.
