Years ago, my family's favorite breakfast place was the Tangaroa Terrace at the Poly. Nothing fancy, but it was the original place to get Tonga Toast.

Papeete Bay Verandah was the original name for the place that is now 'Ohana. At one time they served a nice buffet lunch.

We have dined at 3 places that are now gone:
Concourse Steakhouse (at CR) and Spoodles (at BW) and Cap'N Jacks (at DD). We thought Concourse was okay and Spoodles was really good and Cap'N Jacks was blech.

Wow! That's an interesting fact! Now, Disneyland Hotel has a Tangaroa Terrace...I wondered how they came up with that name...now it makes sense!

The original at the Poly was table service. We recently had lunch at the new Tangaroa Terrace at the Disneyland hotel. It's counter service, but has some interesting menu items.

Ahhh, so many memories for me....

Coral Isle Cafe - now Kona, simple homemade food
Tangora Terrace - for the Tonga toast, and character breakfast you could do the buffet or a la carte
Papeete Bay Veranda - now Ohana, had a great character breakfast buffet

Ariels at the BC - awesome fresh seafood

Chef Mickeys - the original at DTD where RFC is now, was not a buffet back then

My parents miss the Top of the World at CR, where they had entertainment shows. We were too young to go, but old enough to be on our own at the Poly.

I miss old Chef Mickeys and all the restaurants that used to be cafeteria style-Crystal Palace, Hollywood & Vine, and Le Cellier (it may have had a different name). I miss ordering from a menu at Biergarten. I miss the chicken sandwich from Tusker House CS.

I can't remember the name of it, but it was the TS resturaunt at Port Orleans French Quarter, where we had an excellent buffet breakfast.

It was called Bonfamilles and I loved their crawfish pasta dish. I learned how to make it, though. Just find any Crawfish Monica recipe.

I use to love the cafeteria style Crystal Palace, I have an older cookbook that had a recipe for the wrap sandwich they use to have there!

Those cafeteria-style ones were some of our faves.

We miss Fireworks Factory. Great ribs!!
