    She and her DDs had breakfast this morning at the Polynesian's...

    "We love the juice and fruit!"

    [​IMG]

    "This is DD's food, she also had some eggs and bacon."


    "This was our first character breakfast and we were sadly disappointed in the character interaction. We were a group of 9 and so were sat in the back room. We were there for an hour and a half and saw only 3 out of the 5 characters, one of which was Mickey who you get your picture taken with at the beginning, he does not walk around. I had gone up and spoken with the restaurant lead and after waiting another half hour with no characters we had to leave as we still had to finish packing and check out."

    "This was supposed to be our last hurrah before everyone had to go home and it turned into a dud. I was so excited for this meal as I'd heard so many great things about it. And while the front room got tons of interaction the back was ignored. I felt bad for the other tables there with us as they'd only seen one character in an hour and for $300 for all of us it just wasn't worth it."



    "The character interaction we did get was great."
