    Best coffee at Disney. The pulled pork hash is DOPE but they won't let you swap it for breakfast potatoes. They do allow for lots of other swaps and subs. Goat Cheese!!

    The BEST pressed pot of coffee in all of Walt Disney World! Pair it with the fabulous Tonga Toast and you cannot go wrong.

    Very good coffee for a reasonable price compared to bad park coffee. Service here could use some work. Took 3 requests to get more coffee which was eventually too late for us to enjoy it with our meal

    The Big Kahuna (macadamia nut pancakes with pineapple compote) is my fav, but my hubby swears by the Samoan (poached egg over pulled pork hash) with Kona coffee. Either is a must try!

    Get Sticky Wings and Lump Crab Cakes for appetizers. For your entree, get the Grilled Curry-crusted Lamb Chops. It will change your life. The Lapu Lapu and Island Sunset cocktails can be dangerous :)

    The bar serves a full menu. If the restaurant is full, which is often, grab a seat in front of the sushi counter. Or, have your meal at the window and watch the monorail go by!

    The pork chop is lovely, especially if you like a smokey flavor. Compliment your dinner with one of the tropical cocktails– a Mai Tai perhaps– offered on the bar menu and your night is set.

    The Big Kahuna includes smaller portions of many of the best items from the rest of the menu (except Tonga Toast, which is an experience to itself). Great if you like variety.

    So exactly how big was the KIDS Mac & Cheese at Disney's Polynesian Resort? Big enough that my 7 year old son ate only half of it, and I just had the other half for lunch. No, not a snack, but lunch.
