Captain Cook’s at Walt DisneyWorld’s Polynesian Resort reopens


Disney’s Polynesian is getting a major makeover, and a return to it’s roots. Part of that all new makeover includes a total revamp of the popular counter service restaurant, Captain Cook’s. The restaurant closed briefly for a new look, as well as new menu. Also, as August comes to a close, we get a look at more Halloween around the Magic Kingdom!




The new look of the restaurant includes several travel posters, and a removal of the touch screens. Guests once again order with a person, which once again gives everything a more personal touch. The new look isn’t all just a new look, the biggest change comes, of course in the food offferings.









The new menu is a mix of regular “mainland” items and Polynesian inspired. Pork Nachos are still here, but there’s a new emphasis on sandwiches, as well as fish tacos and a ton of unique items. Most notably is the chicken and waffles, which just seems to be an odd mix with buffalo chicken, and a salad.

Meanwhile, at Magic Kingdom, a big beautiful tomorrow never stops moving as walls go up for various projects.


With the completion of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in The New Fantasyland, work continues in front of the castle. Yankee Traders in Liberty Square has also closed to make room for an all new Haunted Mansion gift shop, which will be home to many signature new items inspired by the classic ride.






Halloween is popping up all over the park as more decorations and merchandise are starting to sneak out from the shadows. Window displays showing off your favorite Disney characters getting ready to trick or treat are only matched in cuteness by the specialty pins.
