DINING AT DISNEY’S POLYNESIAN VILLAGE RESORT
Disney’s Polynesian Resort has some of the best dining at Walt Disney World, most of it in the Great Ceremonial House.
The counter service offering is the first-floor Captain Cook’s–also with outdoor seating.
The menu (click to enlarge).
The well-known Polynesian treat, a Reuben sandwich.
Outside of Captain Cook’s is a spot where you can grab a Dole Whip or Pineapple Sundae.
The first floor bar, Trader Sam’s, is based on the famous one at the Disneyland Hotel. On my visit it was too crowded for me to get in to the indoor part of this bar other than for a quick, out-of-focus shot. I promise do better soon!
There’s also an outdoor section to Trader Sam’s–an image of it is at the top of the page.
The Trader Sam’s review from The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2017:
Upstairs there’s two table service restaurants, the family-friendly ‘Ohana and the Kona Cafe.
‘Ohana (review here) does a breakfast meal with Mickey, Lilo and Stitch, and a no-character evening meal with skewered meat.
Here’s the review from The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2017:
‘Ohana gets booked up in advance and its staging area gets quite crowded.
Kona Cafe, around the corner from ‘Ohana, has two areas. One serves as a coffee bar in the morning and a sushi bar in the evening.
The other is the restaurant proper.
The Kona Cafe review from The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2017:
‘Ohana is best loved by families; Kona Café is an under-appreciated gem, best known for its Tonga Toast. Neither is a truly distinctive adult dining experience–for that, you’ll need to go to another Disney World deluxe resort.
Also on the second floor floor you’ll find another bar, Tambu Lounge–usually a little more happening than this image suggests…given that I took it at 7.45a…
Outside and towards the Grand Floridian you’ll find the luau dinner show. Our lukewarm review from The easy Guide to Your Walt Disney World Visit 2017:
There’s also a bar at each pool, and the smaller Oasis pool has a limited-hours grill with an interesting menu (click it to enlarge it):
