Review: Big Kahuna Sandwich and Thai Coconut Meatballs at Captain Cook’s in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

Okay, so YES, we are checking out something called the “Big Kahuna” at the Polynesian Village Resort.

But — before we get your hopes up — we’re talking today about the Big Kahuna SANDWICH at Captain Cook’s. Sadly, the Big Kahuna Breakfast has not returned to the menu at Kona Cafe.

Still, taken on its own, the Big Kahuna Sandwich deserves a look in its own right. I mean, anything called the Big Kahuna Sandwich should be able to measure up to its name, right?

That’s what we’re here to find out!

The Big Kahuna Sandwich consists of turkey, ham, salami, roast beef, Swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato with a red pepper spread, all tucked into focaccia bread. The $11.29 entree comes with a pile of French Fries.
