Aww....thanks so much, Becky. But much of the credit for this thread goes to the live reporters like you. I have been pleasantly surprised by all the people who have volunteered to do updates. You guys are awesome!

As for me, I am truly enjoying this. I'm getting to know so many great DISers, like you Becky. Plus of course, I love never knowing what Disney food is going to pop up on my phone next.

Today is the last full day of Paula & Hunter's trip and they finally made it over to the Polynesian Resort to have breakfast at...


KONA CAFE




They started their meal with this...




100% Kona Coffee French Press Pot





And then Paula finally got to try these...




Macadamia Nut-Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and bacon




After Paula sent me this pic, I told her that I would award her Bonus Points if she cleaned her plate.

She then sent me this pic...






Needless to say, I was quite impressed and was about to award her the Bonus Points anyway when Paula said...


"Hunter has told me we are not leaving until I finish them!"


And sure enough, a few minutes later I received this pic...







So let's give it up for Paula...the first live reporter to conquer the Kona pancakes!!!

Wow major kudos to Paula for finishing those pancakes!! Her poor stomach must be apt to burst so I don't blame her for delaying the cupcake .

This thread has me more excited with each passing day for my own trip. Only 13 more sleeps!!
