Disney chef Michael Thompson, who was a Polynesian Resort chef for seven years, says he can't give exact numbers on the volume of Tonga Toast sales, but sums: "Let's just say we receive our bananas by the pallet load!"
To make the dish, Disney's cooking team tucks bananas into thick slices of sourdough Pullman bread (a sourdough version of square-loafed Pain de Mie), dunks the stuffed bread in eggwash, deep fries to toast and then liberally coats the golden result in cinnamon sugar. Served with strawberry sauce and choice of breakfast meat, "Tonga Toast is a "Wow! item that now has a legacy following," says Thompson.
When they first shaped the dish, Thompson says Disney chefs tried stuffing the toast with marinated peaches, mango slices and other fruits, "But bananas won out.

Mic Thompson, Choreographer
...
Minnie Madden and Grover Dale have successful dance magazines and Mic Thompson is dancing and choreographing up a storm.
...
Mic started dancing at 10 years of age and was working illegally in Las Vegas at the "Casino De Paris" at 16. Don't tell the Sheriff's Department but he lied about his age. He toured with Michael Jackson in "Dangerous" and "Ghost". He was a regular on Dick Clark's "Your Big Break" and he's Jay Leno's dance double on the "Tonight Show". You never know where dance is going to take you!
Always learning, Mic went to Brigham Young University to choreograph "West Side Story" and was bitten by the choreography bug. His big break came when he started choreographing for Disney with The Mickey Mouse Club.
...
If you're considering auditioning for Mic Thompson, you should know that his pet peeve is dancers not having the right shoes. Bring jazz shoes and character shoes to his audition. Don't bring tennis shoes. He is a stickler for exact rhythms and his choreography has a strong musicality. He will give lots of corrections and looks to see if dancers can take direction.
