Just a reminder that we have another Live Reporter arriving tomorrow...


Smiling Chesire Cat- Rachel , her DH (Brian), and son (Chase), will be returning to Disney World in September and staying at AKL from 9/27 - 10/2. Rachel has started her PDR.



Also I have heard from Lori (vettegirl) and she and her friend, Sue, have checked in at Coronado Springs and are now off to get some lunch!

Ginamarie & family were at the Polynesian Resort this morning to have breakfast at...


KONA CAFE


First the menu pics...





Kona Cafe Breakfast Menu as of 9/26/12







Ginamarie said, "Menu seems the same except for higher prices, but I could be missing something???"






100% Kona Coffee French Press Pot






Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes with macadamia nut butter, pineapple sauce and your choice of ham, bacon or sausage


Ginamarie said, "These were light, fluffy, and delicious with those nuts! They did not need any syrup. I had to get help to finish these. It was three large pancakes!"






Tonga Toast - banana stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with Strawberry Compote and your choice of ham, bacon, or sausage


"Picture taken before we got the strawberry compote, which came on the side."






Mickey Pancakes - buttermilk pancakes shaped like you-know-who


"Son already stole a slice of bacon."





Goofy Toast - Only Goofy would fry an egg in the middle of a piece of toast
And as an added bonus...a girl with a beautiful smile!

This from Alice & Snow...



"So change of plans today. Snow lost her ticket and we didn't discover this until we were waiting for the bus to go to lunch. At first, we thought she just left it in the room but after spending 30 minutes tearing it apart (and canceling our ADR ) we decided it is lost. So lunch was at the resort."



Intermission Food Court







"We both had chicken nuggets with fries, she had a side of cheese and then we got the ice cream cookies for dessert 90 minutes later."


Alice also said, "The nuggets were white meat only, which was nice and the fries were hot and salty (in a good way). While this meal was good, I'm glad I'm not eating it every day!!"






Alice said, "The cookie was HUGE. You choose your cookie and then your ice cream. Amazing use of a snack credit, although ours was considered our dessert. Very good, but more than I could possible eat."
