Kona Cone

Is that one of the dessert options for a child on the dining plan? It looks so neat! We would be there for lunch (if that makes a difference).

No, the Kona Cone is an option for an adult dessert. Children get a make your own sundae

This USE to be on the kids' menu and was called the Kidde Kone, but was moved to the adult menu as the Kona Kone now. We get it and let the kids help with it. If you're on the ddp, you can always get it and give it to your kids and take their desert instead.

Its about a halloween sized pack of mms, a handful of cotton candy and 2 scoops of ice cream. They do not pack the cone it just sits on the top. I eat a full meal at kona and a good 2/3 of this after and I'm a very light eater usually. Its just that yummy and its Disney so its a fun treat!

I was wondering that myself. It doesn't look quite like the one I had in January. Mine was a little more "toned" down. But still had the basic elements. It's fun to eat. There is always room for ice cream.

I ate it last week after my steak dinner.

But it has been toned down quite a bit, Disney gives a lot less now with the cone then they use to.

Thanks to the dining plan.

Dining plan or economy... I know many restaurants are cutting back on portion size to avoid price increase. At many of the Mcdonalds here, they used to stuff the fries in the holders to the point of overflowing and have cut back significantly. Lesser cuts of meat, fewer sides, cheaper fish are all tricks of the trade.
