DisneyDan  Friday, February 17, 2017 4:08:15 PM
Hello everyone,

During the last week of December we visited Walt Disney World for Christmas and New Year. In this first part of my trip report I am going to share with you our adventures at Disney's Animal Kingdom and some of the resort hotels, including character dining and more.

Let's start with Animal Kingdom.

At the front of the park, the giant Christmas Tree was on display, looking exactly the same as it has for the past ten years! Despite its age, it is a nice tree.

Hello everyone,

At the end of May Jon and I spent a week at Walt Disney World. We hadn't been down there since February since we travelled to Australia in the spring instead. You can read my currently-ongoing Australia trip report here on my Two Lost Boys blog.

In this part of my report I will be sharing with you our adventures at the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, the resort hotels we stayed at and visited, the Boardwalk, and Disney Springs.

Let's start with the Magic Kingdom.   [ Read More... ]
Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, at Disney's Polynesian Resort - A Review

Hello everyone,

Today's dining review is of the Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, at Disney's Polynesian Resort in Walt Disney World.

Located on the main level of the Great Ceremonial House, inside the 'Ohana restaurant, the breakfast is simply superb, and one of our absolute favourites at WDW.
The Polynesian Resort can be reached from the Magic Kingdom and TTC by monorail, and from all other resort areas by bus.

Taking a trip over to the Polynesian Resort

The food is served what they call "family style", whereby the food is brought out on great platters for your entire party, and you can just pick what you want. It's like having a buffet, but the food options are all brought to you! Items include potatoes, sausages, bacon, Mickey waffles, fruit and tasty breads, including a pineapple bread. If there is anything else that you want or need, you can just ask. For those with food allergies, as with all WDW restaurants, just tell your server and they will do their best to accomodate your needs. For example, Jon has an allergy to melon, and of course being the Polynesian Resort, the fruit on the breakfast inevitably includes melon. We asked for additional other fruits and our server was more than happy to provide us with copious amounts of pineapple instead!

We have always had excellent service here, and the restaurant is very well themed. The views towards the pool and Seven Seas Lagoon are so pretty, and from certain areas of the restaurant you can even see the spires of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom!

Of course, it is a character dining experience, and you can normally expect to find Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto. Mickey wears a special costume, while Pluto gets a Hawaiian lei over his collar.

In the past Chip, Dale and Goofy used to be in attendance, but I haven't seen them there in a long time.

During the meal children will be invited to parade around the dining room with the Disney characters, making for cute photo opportunities.

Overall I would highly recommend breakfast at 'Ohana to anyone. The setting is perfect, the food and service are excellent, and the character interactions are always fun.

Prices start from $22 per person for adults, and $12 for children aged 3 through 9 inclusive. All prices are plus tax, and plus gratuity.
Standard drinks are included. Beware that prices at Walt Disney World table service locations can vary from season to season, and may be considerably higher during peak times.
Annual Passholders are not entitled to discounts at most Walt Disney World dining locations, including 'Ohana. Tables in Wonderland members may receive up to 20%, but again this may vary depending on the time of year.
Reservations are recommended, and can be made at any guest service location at the four theme parks, any Disney Hotel concierge, on the official Walt Disney World Resort website, or by calling the Disney Dining line up to a massive 180 days in advance on (407) 939-1947.
