Breakfast is the most important meal of the day… unless you have allergies and you’ve head straight to the theme parks. Spoiler alert, the options inside the parks for an allergy friendly breakfast are still very small, and you’re much better off eating before you get there!
If your headed to Magic Kingdom or staying at the Polynesian or Monorail Loop, I highly recommend you make reservations for this delectable Breakfast (and we’ll talk about how you can safely mobile order this breakfast spread as well!)
AND, even though they did a menu refresh with reopening in November 2022, they still have the Tonga Toast!

Kona Cafe Allergy Friendly Breakfast Review- Polynesian Resort Disney World
Like most Table Service Restaurants, we’ve got an allergy menu here. I stated my allergies to the cast member at check in and then reiterated them to the server and the chef.
Now, the Tonga Toast is *not* listed for my allergies, but after speaking with the chef I did confirm that it could be modified!
Since this is a shared fryer, I had mine hand fried separately. This does take a long time, like 20-30 minutes, so plan accordingly!
This tonga toast is made with Bloomfield Farms bread and is good for gluten, soy, dairy, and nut allergies (fish/shellfish too!) These rolls do contain corn, and are made in a facility that has sesame.
NOTE: the strawberry compote that comes separately does contain COCONUT. not yelling here, just want you to be aware that the fixings on the side contain an allergen, but the rolls themself do not.
What about the other breakfast options?
Glad you asked! There’s top 8 friendly Bloomfield Farms Waffle Mix (I ask for mine cooked well so they aren’t doughy inside).
There’s oatmeal listed for gluten allergies… but it’s quaker oats steel cut with no gluten free label (So proceed with caution).
Then there’s fruit, yogurt, potatoes, bacon and sausage options.
So how can you get Tonga Toast without a reservation? You can mobile order… but I don’t recommend mobile ordering! HOWEVER, I spoke with the Chef, and at *this* option, the Chef is more than happy to come speak with you before placing a mobile order and get your name so that this can be made correctly.
Overall, this is an excellent option for all the meals of the day if you are on the monorail loop! Check out all the monorail loop options!
