Listen. 2020 has been a WILD ride. There have been times when even the animatronics wanna throw in the towel and fast-forward to 2021. We found something today that really brightened up our day, year, and possibly entire life.
We wandered over to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to grab a cold one and take in the view of Seven Seas Lagoon. We expected it to be a typical day at the Poly with construction updates and possibly eat a new treat. We did NOT expect to be swept off our feet with the return of an INCREDIBLE coconut cup.
Friends, we’d like you to formally meet…THE COCONUT MAN. (Adventurers Club members might know him as Monkey Nut…even though this guy is a little bit different from the Monkey Nuts we know and love. Thanks to our commenter for the reminder! Our Adventurers Club days are getting hazy in our old age.) He’s cute, he’s functional, and he wants you to have fun! Ok, Coconut Man! We promise to have some fun!!
The real coconut is hollowed out in the middle and the perfect size for spiked Dole Whips.
We haven’t even gotten to the best part. He’s also a coin bank! That’s right, this lil’ cutie is a two-for-one souvenir and he’s DEMANDING you to take him home!
Once you’re done sipping on Pineapple drinks, empty out your coconut head and fill it with precious pennies. You know what you should spend your pennies on? More coconut cups, of course!

You can find Coconut Man at the Barefoot Pool Bar. He costs $10 without a drink. Feel free to buy any of the listed drinks for an additional price and fill up your cup throughout your trip.
The bartender told us that it goes hand-in-hand with the Frosty Pineapple cocktail and we couldn’t agree more! They gave us the drink in a disposable cup so we could fill it with as much or little cocktail as we wanted.
Thank you, Coconut Man, for adding a little brightness to our day! We’ll gladly take you home and have fun while we’re at it!
