Disney Polynesian Resort

There’s just something special about Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, wouldn’t you agree? An intoxicating oasis of tranquility, this tiki-haven offers guests a tropical hideaway, adorned with immersive theming, festive décor, and exotic cuisine. Delicate details are abound as you enter the Grand Ceremonial House, each working harmoniously to draw you in and seduce the senses. Suddenly, the sweet aroma of ‘Ohana’s culinary masterwork stirs your appetite and leads you blindly to the top of the stairs. One look inside and you find a cozy atmosphere, brimming with an endless feast of aromatic delicacies. Alas, one particular dish manages to steal your gaze. Your eyes grow wide, your craving deepens, your mouth begins to water… If only you had made your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days out.

    1. Great question! We used refrigerated fresh noodles. We followed the directions on the package first and then added them cooked. Dry noodles will work if you cook them first. Enjoy!
