I was in the mood for something Hawaiian, so my roommate and I headed on over to Captain Cook’s at the Polynesian Resort. (Named after the famous British explorer who discovered the Hawaiian Islands in 1778.)
The Polynesian underwent an extensive remodel for most of 2014, including Captain Cook’s. Gone is the self-serve Dole Whip machine, now you have to go outside and order it from Pineapple Lanai.
I love the sandwiches at Captain Cook’s!
Aloha Pork Sandwich – Pulled Pork on a Pineapple-Coconut Bun with Cheddar, Asian Slaw, Cucumbers, and Tomatoes, with fries – $9.49 [recommended!]
Grilled Chicken Sandwich – with Cheddar, Bacon, Teriyaki Sauce, and Pineapple Salsa – $9.49 [very good!]
Lobster Roll – Lobster Salad on a Split-top Roll with Chips – $16.29
I got to see the remodeled lobby. Not everyone likes it.
Earlier in the week, I got to go to Trader Sam’s, the new tiki bar at the Polynesian, with my friend, Amy Jo.
Two Girls and a Mouse Tale
by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
