Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has a LOT of fantastic dining options.
For starters, there’s all-you-care-to-eat ‘Ohana, where family-style sides accompany huge skewers of grilled meat. Then there’s Kona Cafe, where plated table service meals — most with an island twist — fill diners’ stomachs. This one also offers a super fun character breakfast! And we can’t forget Tambu Lounge, where you can get not just the iconic Lapu Lapu (served in a pineapple!) but can also now order up favorite ‘Ohana bites like noodles, chicken wings, and (of course) ‘Ohana Bread Pudding. Then there’s Pineapple Lanai, where you can satisfy your craving for all things Dole Whip. Finally, we have two words for you: Twilight Feast (AKA — the most awesome in-room dining option on earth!).
But if you’re not full on swirls of fruit and Pineapple Coconut Bread, there’s a proper quick service option, too: Capt. Cook’s! Located on the lower level of the Great Ceremonial House with an exterior entrance on the Lagoon-side of the Resort and an interior entrance off the lobby en route to Trader Sam’s, Capt. Cook’s serves up a small menu — much smaller than the large food courts at Moderate and Value Resorts — of both Polynesian-inspired eats and American classics.
We’re trying some of each. So put down that skewer of ‘Ohana’s grilled shrimp; it’s time to grab some counter service eats at Capt. Cook’s! [Read more…]
