Relaxing at the Tambu Lounge

Right next to ‘Ohana, in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, is the Tambu Lounge. One evening, we decided to take a break from the parks, grab a quick dinner at Capt. Cook’s (to use up some of our Quick Service Dining Plan credits), and then hang out at the Tambu Lounge for a while. Sure, we could have gone to the much newer and flashier Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, but we had our boys with us, and Trader Sam’s has a 21-and-up policy after 8 pm. So the Tambu it was. That was fine with me, as I’d long been wanting to try their famous Lapu Lapu. This best-selling tropical drink lived up to the hype. The icing on the cake, so to speak, was that our server persuaded us to try a serving of ‘Ohana’s renowned pineapple bread pudding. It was amazing! The boys enjoyed their non-alcoholic mocktails while we all soaked up the relaxed after-dinner vibe of the Tambu Lounge.

Lapu Lapu, anyone?

How about some bread pudding?

Do you take advantage of the Tambu Lounge’s offerings? What’s your favorite thing on their menu?

    You make this sound like the place to go. Never been there, but heck, the pineapple bread pudding sounds like it’d be worth the trip!! Great photos!

  2. Heather, we’ve only gone out of the Disney parts and Downtown Disney to go to one of the hotel resorts and that was to a beer tasting where they brought like 8 smaller glasses of different beers from around the world. We still talk about that and how much fun it is. We really want to go back to Disney.

    The Tambu Lounge sounds wonderful. Maybe next time. And I hope that is soon!!!

      Susan, we’ve just recently started exploring the Disney resort hotels more. They’re quite amazing! The nice thing about the Tambu Lounge is that, being located in the Polynesian Resort, it’s just a monorail ride away from the Magic Kingdom. So fun, great food, and a relaxing oasis away from the busy theme park.

  3. J.Q. do you go to Disney World much being in Florida for the winter?

      I’m following along for Janet’s reply 🙂 Rich and I are meeting with our financial advisor next week to discuss retirement goals. Mine, of course, include winters in FL!

      Susan, When we lived near Orlando, we went at least once a year. Now we are farther away and only go if our kids come with us. which is not often.
