New Excitement at Disney's Polynesian


It’s been closed for many months now, but Capt. Cook’s, found at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has now reopened from its refurbishment. The quick-service location has seen quite a few changes. First, the ordering touch-screens are gone. The dining room area has also seen an overhaul, with a new brown color scheme, as well as fun Polynesian Resort-themed artwork adorning the walls.

Guests searching for Dole Whips will also be sad to learn they have not returned to this location. (The pineapple treat will eventually return to The Polynesian at a new location called Pineapple Lanai, which will be opening soon, but no specific date has been announced. Guests can currently still get their Dole Whip fix at the Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle.)

The lunch/dinner menu has also seen an update. Many items remain, and many new items have been added. (Unfortunately my Grown-Up Grilled Cheese didn’t make the cut…boo…) It does seem as though the menu is more extensive now. Menu items include:

  • Chicken and Waffles ($7.99) – crispy buffalo chicken fritters on a waffle topped with romaine and ranch dressing
  • All-Beef Hot Dog ($8.59) – with mango relish and garlic-ketchup
