We went to the character dinner at the Swan on Easter after getting rave reviews about the food from the hotel reservation person. While the kids liked the characters, there were only 3 that showed up, disappointing. Then there was the food. It was bad buffet stuff, really bad. I gave them a 2 only because when there was not even a green salad on the buffet, staff had the kitchen make one for us, otherwise perhaps a 1 would be appropriate. How can a pricey hotel like this one justify this total rip off? AVOID this.

The characters are great and spend time with the kids to make them feel special.They take time to have their pictures taken with your kids and autographs etc..

You are never too old for Pooh and Friends! We have 2 girls - 11 and 15. The 15 year old was not so excited about this as it has been 7 years since we ate here. But once Tigger put his head on hers while she was eating - the smile on her face was wonderful. The 11 year old was excited, got her autographs and the pictures are great. Buffet food is decent and fresh and has healthy options. Adult pricing starts at age 10 - which I think is a little crazy - but at the kids had a nice lunch and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice.

We went to the Polynesian for Christmas breakfast. The food was outstanding served family style. Lilo and Stitch lead a parade through the restaurant and everything was so festive. The Polynesian Resort was decorated beautifully and all in all, it was a wonderful experience on Christmas Day.
