That Tonga Toast brings me back to breakfast in bed on our honeymoon! . I love the food at the Poly! I will FINALLY be eating at O'Hana when we go in Feb. Reading your review makes me wonder if I should squeeze in a breakfast at Kona ....

Those pancakes are my favorite! Nuts and all! Kona is my must do breakfast and I can't wait to go there in Feb Sorry that the nuts were a bit too much for you - you'll have to switch back to the Big Kahuna next time. My DD's favorite is the Tonga Toast so it's nice to be able to steal her breakfast too! LOL!

Your pictures are great. Too great because they are making me really crave some pancakes!

Boatwright's

Eating at Boatwright's had not been the plan for dinner, but after a very filling breakfast at Kona, we realized there was no way we would be ready to eat again at the WCC for a late lunch as planned.

We were going to eat at Boatwrights later in the trip, but easily walked into the restaurant for dinner that evening. (We canceled the ressie for later in the trip)

Let me just tell you that this restaurant is Aaaaa-mazing! Everything was crazy delicious, and unexpectedly so. Honestly, this was my second favorite meal of the entire trip.

The meal started with the best cornbread on the planet: so warm and soft - perfect in every way. Yeah, we had to have our basket refilled. (I'm telling you - amazing expandable stomach)



Ummm....we're gonna need some more butter...

For my entree I chose the Steak Medallions with Mac and Cheese and Crawfish Beignet



Now I'm not really a big meat eater, but this steak was delicious. It was cooked medium well and was really melt in your mouth flavorful. The crawfish beignet was good too and the asparagus was buttery and yummy.The star of this dish though was the mac and cheese. Oh my goodness.... my mouth is watering just thinking about it. It was so cheesy and tasty and just darn good. (At this point i was regretting all the corn bread) Definitely a lick-your-plate-clean dish!

T had the Jambalaya



She pretty much loved everything about this dish. It was mildly spicy with large succulent shrimp and spicy sweet sausage. She said she get it again in a heartbeat.

We were on the dining plan so dessert was gonna happen (blast you corn bread)



This creme brule was light and delicious. I generally enjoy this dessert and I'd say it was on par with most you will find at the world. (Though there is one I had later in the trip that pales all others in comparison). Still, this is a good option.

T had the banana's foster on angel food cake. I think it came with ice cream, but she asked to keep that off the dish. She really enjoyed this dessert.



So, Boatwright's was a huge success. If you are in the area Give it a Try!!! You won't regret it.

We've stayed at POR several times and I've always said that Boatwrights is one of the most underrated restaurants on property. :-)

We stay at Riverside a lot and the CS is really good. We also like the FQ food. The beignets...Oh so good. We ate at Boatwright for the first time in a long time and really enjoyed it. I didn't like the bananas foster tho. Just my taste I guess. Looking forward more! Thanks! I know these reports are not as easy as they look!

Food and Wine Festival

I absolutely love the food and wine festival. All the booths smell so good when you walk past them but there is never enough time and tummy room to sample everything that you want to try. EPCOT is my favorite park and it was a beautiful day.


We were prepared

First stop was Greece. Griddled Cheese with pistachios and honey

This was pretty tasty.


Canada- Chicken Sausage with corn polenta

The corn polenta is the best part of this. T loves the sausage. It's spicy.


Belgium is one of our favorite booths, mainly for the Godiva iced coffee. It is soooo good.

Belgium waffle with berries

The waffle was deliciously warm and soft. Some of the berries were a little too bitter for my taste though.


Lobster Roll from Hops and Barley

This was just OK. The seasoning on this was way too strong for me, and the roll was buttered, but just tasted greasy.


From the Florida booth: Shrimp Ceviche

Wow, this was great! Slightly spicy with fresh chunky tomato and juicy shrimp. Yum!


Grand Marnier Slush



Vegan Chile

This tasted like the real deal. It was really flavorful, and the fried chips were a great accompaniment


Kahlua Pork Slider

This was my absolute favorite F&W pick. The pulled pork was deliciously pared with spicy mayo and pineapple. Amazing.


A trip around the World Showcase isn't complete without a mickey pretzel


Next up: Raglan Road

Raglan Road Irish Pub

Raglan Road is my favorite downtown Disney restaurant. The atmosphere is fun! We got to see an Irish dancer perform as well as a band and it made for a fully enjoyable experience.

Bread Service



I had the Burger R Way with chips.

Best burger of the trip! It was so juicy and flavorful and the chutney and Dubliner cheddar… sooo good. The chips were piping hot and delish.


T had the Fried fish and chips and really enjoyed it as well.

The fish was flaky and of good quality. She loved it.


I had Ger’s Bread and Butter Pudding on my first trip to the World, and thought it was the best dessert ever.

I think over the years I’d build it up in my mind. Though still good, it just wasn’t as amazing as I remembered. The butterscotch drizzle was my favorite. Pour it on liberally people


Dunbrody’s Kiss.

I snagged a bite of this. It is a rich decadent dark chocolate mousse. T loved it as would any chocolate lover. I would get it again for sure.



Raglan Road is a great option if your looking for a fun meal in downtown disney.

Next: Ohana Character Breakfast
