You Can’t Beat Tonga Toast, Can You?!

Hey!  How about a … “Big Kahuna with a smaller version of Tonga Toast instead of pancakes”?  Offered up by one of our readers, that’s an excellent idea!  Don’t you agree?


When it comes to Tuesday’s Kona Cafe breakfast poll, several comments displayed affection for The Samoan – poached eggs with Hollandaise served over smoked pulled pork hash.

Plus, I clearly underestimated the allure of Macadamia-Pineapple Pancakes.  Fans raved over those, as well.  And, of course, Hawaiian Kona “Maragogype” Press Pot coffee got a lot of love too.

Having said that, when it comes to breakfast, we’re all about the Tonga Toast.  The Big Kahuna ran a close second.  The poll is still open, folks.  If you haven’t voted, go back and register your opinions!

Now, as for the “signature” adult beverages that can be found at nearby Tambu Lounge, pineapples rule.  Lapu Lapus for everyone!

My favorite response, given that I asked which drink was better, was …

“Depends.  Do you want to continue drinking or only have one drink?  Lapu Lapu is big … and potent!  The Backscratcher isn’t nearly as devious.  Both are yummy, though.”

If you still need to (want to) weigh in with your pick, my friends, stop back to Wednesday’s post.  Lapu Lapu?  Backscratcher?  You choose!  Cheers!

Best Signature Drink at Polynesian’s Tambu Lounge?

Let’s stick around the Polynesian for another day, OK.  Let’s see a show of hands.  Who else – other than Mrs. All in WDW and I – loves Tambu Lounge?

Hah!  I see you all out there!  Great lounge, isn’t it?  Whether you simply stop by for a quick refreshment or are waiting for your ADR at nearby ‘Ohana, it’s a very fun spot!

Reminiscing about good times at Tambu got me to thinking about Disney’s “signature” drinks.  Each resort seems to have their own special “creations”, eh?  Tambu is no different.

Bacardi Superior Rum, Myers’s Original Dark Rum, and Passion Fruit Juice.  Top that with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and add a Bamboo Backscratcher!


Now, that’s a cocktail, folks.  Hey!  The backscratcher is a “take home” souvenir.  We have three of them!  Do you have any?

Myers’s Original Dark Rum and Tropical Fruit Juices topped with Goslings 151 Rum!  Serve it up in a fresh Pineapple and you have an infamous Lapu Lapu!


Same “challenge” as yesterday … how in The World can we choose between these two?!  Well, that’s what I want you to do today, my friends.  Backscratcher.  Lapu Lapu.  You choose!
