I think johnsonet posted the hours of the Kona Coffee bar a month or so ago. 6:30 comes to mind as opening but I'll try to look for it.

I do know that Kona Cafe's normal opening time is 7:30am.

I believe you are correct. I never had to distinguish b/w child and adult when using counter service credits. For table service, the children HAVE to order off the children's menu if there is one (not at a buffet). At Captn Cook's, we just got 3 orders of the Mickey Waffles with bacon and it counted as 3 CS even tho one was actually for my dh. And I had the same experience with the CM's coaxing me to get the bigger drinks b/c I was on the dining plan.

All this coffee talk reminds me that I was sooooo disappointed two weeks ago when we were there. It was naptime for the kids and my afternoon coffee time. I walked to the Kona Island/Sushi Bar thing to get the famous Kona coffee. Sorry, they don't open until 5pm and neither does Kona Island Restaurant. UGH. I go to the bar, no Kona coffee there either. So, I went downstairs and had a cup of their Nestle coffee or whatever it is. If you put a lot of cream in it, it's okay but I was so sad not to be able to get Kona in the afternoon. Did I miss something? Also, one morning in Capt Cook's, a woman was going around taking a survey of the coffee down there. Maybe they're thinking of replacing it? Some day, I'll have Kona and Tonga Toast!!

They should have Kona everywhere in Poly. They don't even have it at O'HANA'S . It's time to change the coffee all around Disney. We bring our own coffee with us we are fans of Dunkin Donut coffee . It's Kona or DUNKIN DONUT coffee or nothing.

I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

The cs credits are not lumped together however, they can tell how many adults and children are in your party. If you order say, 3 adult cs meals, they will tell you you can't do that as there is only 2 adults in your party - specifically this happened at the Flame Tree BBQ in AK. As for Capt. Cook's, my husband was purchasing the mickey waffles for my dd's, tried to use the ddp and I see him motioning to me to come over as there was a problem, the cm specifically said that we couldn't use the child's credit for the adult entree - it could only be used on the child's breakfast platter - like I said previously, it could just depend on the cm.

Thanks, glad I could help! I'm supposed to swing through the Poly tomorrow for EMH at the Magic Kingdom. Hopefully I can get some more photos.

I know you can get it with non-fat milk for sure. As for an iced latte...I want to say they do have them but I'm not 100% sure. I'll double-check when I'm at the Poly tomorrow. And trust me, that Starbucks withdrawal is

I saw that coffee stand but I wasn't sure it was "real" coffee. From one coffee addict to another, I am beyond grateful for the tip!

That is great the cancellation fee would be small. Stay safe, okay?

That really sucks...cosidering I'm sure a waffle costs a heck of a lot more for them to make than a bkfst platter with eggs, meats, etc. Well here's hoping I get lucky and get nice CM's b/c my girls LOVE waffles.

I would not have been happy with any CM who tells me I cannot use an adult CS credit for my child,

They are our credits to use as we see fit.... not for them to tell us we can only use 2 at a time... if we want to use 6 in one go, that is our prerogative, or has someone changed the rules recently?

I hear ya.....but I THINK what happened is that they know by the program that they had 2 adults and 1 child and tried to use all 3 credits (including the child) to buy an adult meal. The plan clearly states that you must order from the kids menu.
NOW I've never been to Disney using the dining plan so I do not know the ins and out but I am suppose they could have just used 3 adult credits and at the end they'd have ended up with one less adult credit and one extra kids credit? Not sure on that....

It's not that they would not allow us to use as many credits as we wanted, it's how we used them. We are 2 adults w/2 children - our order was for 1 Tonga toast, 1 adult breakfast platter, and 2 mickey waffles - they only allowed us to use 2 adult credits since the mickey waffles were not "child credits" they specifically have a "child's breakfast platter" which she told us was the only thing that would count as a child's credit.

The coffee stand at the TTC is real coffee. It's Joffrey's Coffee and Tea Company (Florida).

Poly Address?

We leave in a little over 2 weeks and I am sooo excited! Thanks to everyone on this thread for all the great tips and info. The one thing I haven't been able to find yet (though it doesn't mean it's not here!) is the Poly address to use if you want to have something delivered to the resort.

Can someone post that please? I want to have one of those fruity edible arrangements delivered for our anniversary! Thanks!
