Well…if you love Moana and cupcakes then you might be thrilled to know that there’s ANOTHER Moana cupcake also available at Disney’s Polynesian Resort right now, and this one is the official treat released in celebration of World Princess Week. We’ve been trying all kinds of new princess desserts (like the Belle cheesecake or apple pie Snow White cupcake) around the parks and resorts lately, so we just had to stop by the Poly to check this one out.
Even if you plan out every detail of your Disney World trip, things can still be unpredictable.
Rides can shut down, the weather can be bad, or transportation can be late. Sometimes you can even have issues with where you’re staying on property, which is exactly what happened today at a popular Disney hotel.
Aloha from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!
The Polynesian Resort is home to a ton of delicious eats and treats, like the Pork Dumplings and Noodles at ‘Ohana and the famous Dole Whip served at Pineapple Lanai! Recently, the Barefoot Pool Bar, located right beside the main Volcano pool at the Polynesian, started serving food! With so many incredible options already available, is this little spot worth a visit?
There are LOTS of hotel renovations happening in Disney World.
Some that we’ve been following are the renovations coming to Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows and the updates coming soon to the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Now, Disney has announced one big change that’s coming to the villas at both of these resorts!
UPDATE: As of September 4th, 2021, POG Juice is returning with a new distributor, Nestle, and is expected to return to all Disney World locations that previously served drinks with POG by the end of this week.
Have you had POG juice at Disney World before?
It’s made of Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava juices all mixed together to create a delicious, fruity drink. We usually find POG Juice (sometimes also referred to as Jungle Juice or potentially by other names) in places like Dawa Bar and Tusker House Restaurant in Animal Kingdom and ‘Ohana and Kona Café in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. But lately, we’ve been seeing some things with POG Juice have been changing! And many readers have been reaching out with concerns! So what’s really going on with this delicious drink?
There are few Disney World treats as beloved as Dole Whip.
Yes, we’ll admit, we’re obsessed with this frozen fruity snack, but it is ICONIC for a reason! There are endless possibilities when it comes to Dole Whip combinations — we’ve tried Coconut Raspberry, Lemon Lime, Pineapple Coconut, and SO many more! But today, we found something that will make fans of spice VERY happy.
This menu was apparently very temporary because they’re already switching it up and bringing back some old favorites! We’re back at ‘Ohana today to try the new, er, old? menu items again! Take a look at what we found!
If you’ve taking a trip around the Magic Kingdom Resort Monorail loop recently, you have probably noticed that you currently cannot get on or off at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
The resort, which has gone through extensive renovations along with a re-theming of their guest rooms inspired by Moana, has had no working Monorail station for several months now as the station undergoes some renovations.
We’ve seen quite a few restaurant reopenings at Disney World in the past few months!
We tried the newly reopened Columbia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom, Toledo at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and Yachtsman Steakhouse just recently. Back at the beginning of July, the ever-popular ‘Ohana reopened at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort reopened, and now it looks like the restaurant is getting some major changes!
Extra Magic Hours haven’t been available at Disney World since the reopening last July. Disney recently announced new perks for hotel guests that aren’t quite the same as Extra Magic Hours but do allow guests more time in the parks.
Hotel guests on Disney property are able to get Early Theme Park Entry to all 4 parks starting on October 1st. This includes guests at every Disney-owned hotel on property as well as Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels, Disney World’s on-property military hotel, and other local hotels. We have a full list of all the hotels eligible for Early Theme Park Entry here.
However, ONLY guests at Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resorts will have access to Extended Evening Hours. But the big question: would YOU be willing to shell out Deluxe resort prices for this perk? Here’s what our readers said!
