7. Location: The Kona Café is located upstairs in the Polynesian Village Resort. This casual restaurant overlooks the great ceremonial house and has an open island feel to it. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is one of the most beautiful resorts in our opinion. The South Pacific culture, flora and fauna inspire the whole resort. The resort is also a stop on the monorail from the Magic Kingdom. It is a great place to take a break from the parks and have a relaxing meal.

6. Open Sushi Kitchen: One of the highlights of the café is the open sushi kitchen. The whole restaurant has a very open feel to it so you can see the kitchen from all angles. Traditional sushi chefs can be seen here hand rolling sushi, sashimi and more. The sushi kitchen provides over 10 sushi rolls and can even customize rolls for you!

Also available is a selection of sake, imported Kona beer.

3. 3 menus a day: The Kona Café is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This means that there are 3 menus of delicious American cuisine with a South Seas twist. For example at breakfast we would recommend the macadamia-pineapple pancakes. There is also a different kid’s menu available at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

2. Atmosphere: The atmosphere of this café is as relaxed as you would feel on a beach in Hawaii. The decorations are beautiful and provide a tropical paradise for you and your family to enjoy. Even though this is a popular spot the sound level is never high and you can always hear the faint sounds of island music. Make sure to look around for some tropical hidden Mickeys!
