Your welcome. It's not the same but 'Ohana is our favorite! I didn't know if I would feel the same with the new menu when we went but I liked it even better! The kids can eat what everyone is eatting and also order chicken fingers... They have coconut races for the kids, hula dance (adults too, I did it!). The food is great and it's lots of fun. My kids enjoy it as much as us.

It has been about 20 years, but our younger DD, fell fast asleep in her high chair during the luau when she was 22 months old.

GOOD to know. We plan to go to 'Ohana as well as Kona while we're there. The girls both love asian-type foods (Hmm, perhaps b/c they are 1/2 vietnamese? ) and I know they'll totally enjoy 'Ohana's! Do they do the coconut races all the time or is there a specific time we should make our ADR? THANKS again!

They say every 20 minutes they do something but it's more like every half hour or so.Ask to be seated in the main dining area where you can see all the action.

TIA!
The self-serve laundry is located in the same building as the Neverland Club (the building is right across from the Poly bus stop). It is to the right of the club. I believe it is $2.00 to wash and $2.00 to dry.

Hi,

Can I ask advice on what the grocery store sells please?

Am I right in thinking it's just the basics, such as milk/water/soda....do they sell bread/butter and other items too?

So...don't carry your laundry there without having your key to save a trip back to your room. There are also vending machines there for detergent, bleach, softener etc.
I also believe there is a TV there to help pass the time while waiting.
Thanks JRDMAN!!

Anyone happen to know approx what a bottle of Apple Juice costs? Trying to figure out if it's better to bring along juice boxes to take to the park or buy the bottles there? I'm guessing bringing from home is much cheaper....but def not too convenient.

We bring the juice boxes that come packed in a box so it's not too bad
I think it's like 12 in a box
Then we just throw them in a cooler or a fridge when we arrive

My kids are 5, 7, 9 and we are booked to go the Luau on the first night of our trip. They are really looking forward to it - I hope that they like it! Honestly - it's our first night and I really didn't want to do it but I was outvoted 4 to 1!!! I'll have to remind them of that if they start squawking during the show.

I can't believe I'm under 2 months to go to the Poly!!!!

Oh - my TA emailed me after the discount rates came out - she couldn't get me a discount for the Poly but offered to look at other resorts. I said okay - but secretly hoped she wouldn't find anything so we wouldn't have to stay somewhere else!!!! LOL

You're very welcome! Me and my DD8 live off of Silk Soy milk.

I'm in Chicago right now (waiting for my flight back to Orlando) so the second part of our Disney trip is set to begin on Wednesday. Have to go back to my Aunt's house today--she lives about 2 hours north of Orlando. I am so hoping the weather will be better because all those days of rain from Fay while at Disney got old QUICK!

Bringing from home is *definitely* cheaper and I do this all the time. However, last time I checked an Apple Juice Box (Minute Maid) cost about $1.59 and a bottle of apple juice was around $2.59. It definitely adds up.

However, if the fountain drink machine is working, apple juice is available for the refillable mugs and as a fountain drink selection.
