Kona?

We are 43 days out and everything is set but the closer we get the more I'm worried about Kona. Its one of the few places my husband picked out, so I don't want to change it, but the menu doesn't look great to me. So my question is, how good is Kona? We have dinner reservations there. Thanks!

I haven't eaten there yet, but there's a review on Allears.net on the main page. You can also read additional reviews under rate and review.

I really like Kona. When we had the std DDP we would go there once, or twice, per trip for dinner. My favorite thing there was the Tuna Oscar-which is no longer available but we've enjoyed every meal there but one. My DM had a steak that was basically inedible. But it wasn't a problem getting something else.

The sticky chicken wings are also very good! I could make a meal out of those.

When I called Disney the guy on the phone said I needed to try the sticky wings so they must be something special!

Best dessert ever at WDW, in my opinion, is at Kona. Banana Crème Brulee!! AHHMazing!! Plus my hubby loved his steak. Kids enjoyed the pan noodles.

Enjoy!

Please stop licking your monitor. It's hard to clean the smudges off, and electrocution sounds painful.

Thanks! I'm starting to relax. Now if I could figure out this magic band stuff I'd be fantastic ;-)

Pot stickers or sticky wings, and then the pan-asian noodles wth shrimp. Always a staple for me.
