Kona Cafe Breakfast


Everyone knows Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. It is one of the original Walt Disney World Resorts, located on the Monorail loop and across the Seven Seas Lagoon from the Magic Kingdom. Many people know about 'Ohana restaurant within that resort, famous for it’s all you care to eat dinner and character breakfast, but hidden away just around the corner is a gem for breakfast called Kona Café.

Located in the Great Ceremonial House, just down the hallway from 'Ohana, Kona Café is a quiet and unassuming location with some of the best breakfast choices on property at Walt Disney World.  It underwent a renovation in 2022, but fan favorite menu items remained once it reopened. 

Beverages start the offerings with all of your traditional offerings but with a few unique choices that differentiate this dining location.  A press pot of coffee featuring a Hawaiian Kona Blend of coffee is offered as well as Liliko’i juice, which is a blend of orange juice, passion fruit juice and guava for a delicious and unique option to have.  This can also be made into a mimosa!!! For kids, they offer a Moana or Stitch smoothie to start the morning with.

The dish that is best known here is the Tonga Toast, a French toast taken up several notches.  It is stuffed with banana, fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar and served with a strawberry topping along with your choice of breakfast meat.

But as with the beverages, Kona has more than that to start your day off right.  My go-to option is the Pineapple Macadamia Nut Pancakes.  This selection will give you three HUGE pancakes made with chopped macadamia nuts in the batter.  The batter is also slightly sweet with a very light vanilla taste to it.  These are served with a macadamia nut butter and grilled crushed pineapple on top of the pancake stack.  I prefer the toppings on the side but the combination of the tastes for this is incredible.  No syrup needed for these pancakes!!!  A little bit of butter and the pineapple brings out the flavor perfectly and doesn’t need anything more than that!!

Of course all of the regular offerings of eggs and other breakfast staples are available as well, but we recommend you try the unique dishes here for a standout meal.  You wont want the same old options that you can get anywhere else after that.  Allergies and special diets also have options to select from at this location. 

Start your day with the great food and beverage options at Kona Café, and see why this is such a fan favorite!!!

Top 10 Must Do's at Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris, formerly known as Euro Disney, opened on April 12, 1992. When traveling to different Disney parks, it's hard not to compare it to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida. Each park is unique in it's own way. With so many wonderful attractions, it was a little difficult to come up with a Top 10 list. I would have picked "it's a small world", but that was closed when we were visiting. Here are my Top 10 things to do at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris: 10. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, or Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril in French, is a roller coaster attraction that travels up to 59 feet. It does go through an inversion and travels up to the speed of 36 mph. The attraction is on the shorter side but it was fun to experience this unique attraction. 9. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a maze attraction in Fantasyland. The goal is to reach the castle of

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res

Carthay Circle Review

The Kingdom Konsultant team had the pleasure of being invited to the Disneyland Resort for agent training recently, and the first night the whole group was there, we went to Carthay Circle for dinner. The restaurant is a model of the famed Carthay Circle Theater, where Snow White debuted in 1937. The restaurant is elegant and beautiful, but not pretentious. They are used to people in theme park attire. We had trouble securing a reservation for 18, but we were able to get 3 smaller reservations and the restaurant was accommodating to seat us at tables next to each other. We had beautiful tables on the balcony overlooking Disney California Adventure and a dazzling sunset.  Some of us ordered entrees, some ordered appetizers but mostly we ordered a lot of things to share! Every table tried the Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls, which were served with Calabrian Chili-Pine Nut Romesco Butter. These were delicious , and the butter was the real star.  Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls & Calab
