Special request for the older crowd maybe?

My grandpa retired from Disney with his last job being a manager at a restaurant in the Polynesian. I think it was the Kona. I remember going there almost every weekend with my mom and we had breakfast there. We always ordered the Apple Crepes that were beyond words with a fabulous apple cream sauce on top. If I close my eyes and think about it, I swear I can still remember the exact taste. I have searched unsucessfully for years for a close recipe, I even emailed Disney inquiring about it and they could not figure out where or when this dish was served. Does ANYONE here remember that far back? It would have been in the very early 80's maybe?

I have a recipe book from 1987 and in it are many recipes from the Polynesian. I have one called Apala which has poached apples, brandy and whipped cream. Does that sound right? If so I can post the recipe. It says its from Papeete bay verandah which I'm guessing is an old restaurant in the poly.

FWIW, Papeete Bay Veranda was the space currently occupied by O'Hana. Kona was previously Coral Isle Cafe.
