Located in the Great Ceremonial House at the Polynesian Village Resort you’ll find a tropical island restaurant filled with great meal and snack options. Captain Cook’s is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day and also offers a wide variety of snacks, beer and wine.


Like everything else at this resort, Captain Cook’s is themed to the South Pacific. There is plenty of seating in the bright and whimsical dining room or enjoy your food outside on the patio looking over the pool area.

Breakfast offers platters, breakfast pastries and a breakfast burrito but if you dine here for breakfast you MUST try the famous Tonga Toast. This is the same dish served upstairs at the Kona Café (table service) restaurant so it’s a great option to be able to get at Captain Cook’s – no reservation required!


Lunch and dinner share the same menu which includes soups, salads, flatbreads and entrees such as pulled pork sandwich, lobster roll, pulled pork nachos, fish tacos, sandwiches and burgers.


There are lots of snack options here. If you are using one of the Disney Dining Plans simply look for the logo next to the price to see if it’s included as a snack credit (most items are).


This is also where you will find the refill station for the Rapid Refill Mugs. These are included for guests using one of the dining plans so make sure you stop by Captain Cook’s after check in to pick up your mugs. Beverages at the refill station include sodas, powerade, iced tea, hot tea and coffee.


A variety of grab and go meals are also available in the refrigerated section as well as beer and wine.

When using one of the Disney dining plans Captain Cook’s will utilize 1 quick service entitlement per person.
