The latest color trend, Imagination Pink, has popped up all over Disney World and Disneyland in the form of merchandise and treats.
We’re hopping on the Walt Disney World Monorail Resort Loop to see What’s New at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Grand Floridian Resort, and Contemporary Resort. There will be rain coats! There will be cupcakes! There will be other new things! Please stand clear of the doors, and let’s glide!
What’s New at the Transportation and Ticket Center
Our first stop is the Transportation and Ticket Center where we browsed Mickey’s Gift Station. [Read more…]
We’re getting ready to celebrate the 90th Birthday of Mickey Mouse! All over the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, specialty treats will be available to mark the very special occasion.
If you’ve perused the list of all of the snacks on the way, you’ll notice that the treats are scheduled to be available throughout various locations all around Disney World from November 16th through 18th. However, Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort is getting ready to celebrate Mickey’s birthday a few days early with Mickey’s Birthday Cupcake, which is now available at Capt. Cook’s, the Resort’s quick service location! [Read more…]

from Disney’s Polynesian Resort!
Capt. Cook’s is the Polynesian’s Quick Service option — famous for Tonga Toast in the morning, and Pork Sandwiches and Nachos in the afternoon into the evening (more on their also-famous Dole Whips later in the post). You can typically find a few unique and stellar cupcakes here, too.
Well, its original location is currently closed for refurbishment from now until later this summer. We’re definitely looking forward to the new-and-improved digs, but in the meantime we thought we’d swing by to give you a quick look at the temporary location.
If you head to the original location for Captain Cook’s, you’ll see signs directing you to the temporary location. From the original space, it’s just to the right of the set of stairs that bring you to Tambu Lounge.
The first thing to greet you is the main seating area.
Captain Cook’s signature tables made the move…
And additional seating can be found to the left of the main area.
Past the seating, you see the food area.
The kitchen space appears roomy.
Flow in the costumer area is a bit [Read more…]
UPDATE: Dole Whip is no longer being served at Captain Cook’s, is no longer self-serve, and is no longer available 24 hours a day. You’ll now find Dole Whip at the Pineapple Lanai in Disney’s Polynesian Village in addition to Aloha Isle at the Magic Kingdom. You can also find Dole Whip available intermittently at Animal Kingdom’s Tamu Tamu Refreshments, and at Epcot during some special events. On the upside, you can also get a Dole Whip Float at Pineapple Lanai!
There are two important things you need to know about Captain Cook’s Snack Company and why I consider it to be one of Disney’s best kept secrets:
1. It offers two of Disney’s most beloved menu items — Tonga Toast and Dole Whips.
2. It’s open 24. Hours.
Those two are reason enough to visit, but when you add in the fact that the place serves up some pretty unique and delicious eats, there’s no reason NOT to escape the crazy of the Magic Kingdom for a quick boat ride over to the Polynesian Resort and a visit to Captain Cook’s.
This joint looks pretty much like a fast-food location decorated in stereotypical Hawaiian style. Because that’s what it is. But it’s also so much more!
It was one of the first locations to pioneer [Read more…]
