Club lounge breakfast details please!

Could someone give me some details on the breakfast available in the Hawaii club lounge? We are going for a week and I'm curious whether we should do that everyday or if we should plan on doing a few character meals. I was hoping to just do the club lounge (since we're already paying for it!!), but there are 10 in our group and I'm wondering if there is enough variety each day to hold everyone's interest for that long? Is the same thing everyday or does it change each day? Is there any hot food at all or is it pure continental breakfast?

Thank you!!

I read on another Disney site that Hawaii may be opening back up today? Just wondering if we might get some pictures of the new rooms! Anyone?

We haven't been there since 2011, so this may have changed, but the only hot food they had was oatmeal (with different toppings - raisins, brown sugar). They did have bagels, assorted mini muffins, croissants, 3-4 different cold cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt (although I think we had to ask for the yogurt?). Can't remember if there was anything else, but our family was easily able to use this for breakfast each morning. As far as changing each day - I think just the type of muffin changed? Again, others can chime in here!

With a group that large it will be hard to please everyone! Don't forget about Cap'n Cooks. Since you get free beverages and stuff at CL someone could grab themselves some eggs etc from there. Location pretty close too.

We did the club lounge most mornings, but also did a couple of character breakfasts. Breakfast with Pooh is a tradition for us, so we couldn't break that one, club level or not.

We got 25% at the Poly with the AP rate the GP rate was 20% for our dates. I've seen AP rates up to 35-37% this year. You never know. It's all about how crowded they anticipate the place to be at any given time.

Mousesavers.com has a nice breakdown of the historic released discounts.

That's what we had for our 2 trips at the Poly, too. IMO it did get boring after a few days... For a party of 10, I could see booking one or two breakfasts if you are worried people won't be happy with the same spread day after day... or just go to Captain Cook's to add a bit of something.
