Oh. My. GOODNESS. My breakfast rocks! This is the Tonga Toast, a super giant banana-stuffed sourdough bread that’s battered and deep-fried, then dusted with cinnamon sugar. 
This is available at one other restaurant at the resort, but only at the Polynesian does it come with a choice of spiced ham (read Spam) and strawberry compote. It was fantastic, amazing, wonderful, great, exquisite… Need I say more? 
This has got to be the best French toast I’ve ever had in my life. The cinnamon and sugar dusting made for an almost caramelized crunchy crust, while the inside remained fluffy, creamy, and a little gooey! The compote along with a little butter made this absolutely decadent. 
I am rejuvenated & ready to conquer the day MY way! #disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #disneyrestaurant #foodie #eater #foodgasm #foodporn #yum #yummy #tasty #foodphotography #foodsofdisney #spam #spamforspam #tongatoast #frenchtoast #stuffedfrenchtoast

Time to head over to Kona Cafe! This Polynesian Resort restaurant is an underrated gem just a monorail trip away from the Magic Kingdom. 
Why here, you ask? Kona Cafe is noted for its signature breakfast dish...Tonga Toast, consisting of French toast stuffed with deep-fried bananas and covered with sugar and cinnamon, created by the resort's cultural advisor, Auntie Kaui. The minute I read about this treat I was as SOLD as GOLD! #disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #USA #ustravels #florida #orlando #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesian #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #disneyrestaurant #foodie #eater #foodgasm #foodporn #yum #yummy #tasty #foodphotography #foodsofdisney

Longhouses, house all of the resort's rooms. The longhouses are named for islands on the Polynesian isle map, with chosen longhouse names matching the relative geographic position of their namesake island(s): Fiji, Tonga, Niue, Samoa, Rarotonga, Tahiti, Tokelau, Rapa Nui, Tuvalu, Aotearoa and Hawaii. #disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #USA #ustravels #unitedstates #florida #orlando #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesian #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #longhouse #sevenseaslagoon #whitesandbeach #naneavolcanopool #volcano #volcanopool #πŸŒ‹ #πŸ–

The resort's Nanea Volcano Theme Pool was constructed in 2001 replacing the resort's original pool. The theme pool features a large, volcano-type structure with waterfalls and a water slide that feeds into the main pool. The theme pool offers a zero-entry sloping entrance, as opposed to traditional stairs or step ladder. #disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #USA #ustravels #unitedstates #florida #orlando #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesian #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #longhouse #sevenseaslagoon #whitesandbeach #naneavolcanopool #volcano #volcanopool #πŸŒ‹ #πŸ–

White Sand Beaches of the Seven Seas Lagoon - There is a large expanse of beach fronting the Seven Seas Lagoon, with lounge chairs, hammocks, and cabanas placed throughout the area. For a short period following the resort's opening, swimming was permitted in the Seven Seas Lagoon, with wave machines and other features built to increase the authenticity of the location. Due to land erosion concerns, the wave machines were not used beyond their initial testing period. With other operational considerations in mind, swimming/wading is not currently permitted in the Seven Seas Lagoon.#disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #USA #ustravels #unitedstates #florida #orlando #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesian #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #longhouse #sevenseaslagoon #whitesandbeach #πŸ–

The resort's mascot, affectionately dubbed Tikishrug by some, is actually intended as a stylized representation of the god Maui, with material from early in the resort's lifespan revealing the connection. (This dude was actually around the resort a long time before Moana came out!) He's planted front and center of the Great Ceremonial House, itself designed after a Tahitian royal assembly lodge. It houses guest services and most of the resort's dining and merchandise locations. #disneyworld #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneygram #disneylife #USA #ustravels #unitedstates #florida #orlando #disney #epic #disneyparks #disneyresort #polynesian #polynesianresort #disneypolynesianresort #disneyhotels #luxuryhotel #🏝 #🏨 #tiki #maui #tikishrug
