Although there have been some adjustments to ensure social distancing and other safety measures are carried out, spots like California Grill and Biergarten Restaurant have reopened with some delicious items for guests to enjoy. Now, we’ve gotten word that a LOUNGE at one of the Disney resorts may be reopening soon and we’re incredibly excited!
Select Disney World restaurants have now reopened, and we’re checking them out! So far, we’ve swung by Captain Cook’s to try the gorgeous Welcome Back Cupcake and gotten a quick Dole Whip fix at Pineapple Lanai!
Now, we’re headed to Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to scope it out — let’s take a look!
You know we are full of expert Disney tips, but even we make some odd choices when it comes to our Disney trips sometimes.
This may not be what people would classically recommend, but trust us — we have our reasons! Would YOU make some of these crazy choices on your next Disney World trip? Or have we just lost our marbles? 😉
‘Ohana means family, so we’re not leaving anyone behind and heading to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to chow down — TOGETHER!
And since we’re looking to feed our whole crew, we’re heading back to ‘Ohana to fill up with their all-you-care-to-eat dinner. Our past few trips have varied wildly food-wise, even though the atmosphere is consistently spot-on. So we’re back to give the entrees another shot and find out if this restaurant is worth adding to your must do Walt Disney World list (and because you KNOW we can’t resist their bread pudding!).
Have you ever wondered how Disney’s Polynesian Resort celebrates Christmastime in Disney World?
Although their approach is a bit more lei-ed back, their Christmas decorations are totally on point!
has always been a guest favorite spot to grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But with a big menu change, is it still as crave-worthy?
Located in the Great Ceremonial House that serves as the centerpiece of the resort, the restaurant is airy and open…but still relatively boring when it comes to decor and theme. But since the Polynesian is on the Monorail, Kona Cafe is relatively easy to access even if you’re not staying at the resort. And, of course, the food has been fairly consistent over the years: good with moments of greatness.
Now the recent menu change has guests wondering whether Kona Cafe should stay on their must-get Advance Dining Reservation list or whether they should head elsewhere. We reviewed lunch shortly after the menu change, and overall, we were impressed by the offerings! In particular, we thought the sushi was a terrific value, and we enjoyed the Hawaiian-Style Reuben sandwich. Even dessert had some pleasant surprises with Key Lime and Tiramisu cups bringing good flavor.
But I wanted to get back to dine from the Dinner Offerings portion of the menu, which is where you’ll find Steak and Seafood that isn’t available for lunch. [Read more…]

On the second floor of Great Ceremonial House in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a beloved Disney World watering hole: Tambu Lounge.
Nestled next to ‘Ohana, many a guest has enjoyed a drink at this casual, welcoming lounge. And perhaps a Lapu Lapu — Tambu’s famous concoction served in a pineapple — has been on (or been checked off!) your Disney Food Bucket List. Maybe you’ve enjoyed the spot’s savory Pork Nachos, or polished off a single serving size of ‘Ohana Bread Pudding while bellying up to the bar. Or maybe you’ve even started your day there because… VACATION!!
If any of the scenarios above is the case, then you’re likely as glad as we are that Tambu Lounge is reopen TODAY after a lengthy refurbishment! In fact, they were just putting on some finishing touches before getting ready to start serving.
