When we arrived to the Polynesian, I was starving. So we headed directly to Captain Cook’s, which is the quick service location there. I hadn’t stayed at this resort for 5 years, and this location had undergone some renovations since then. Here’s the lunch/dinner menu posted (August 2018):
Each quick service location seems to operate differently. For this particular one, there was a queue set up and 3 registers. You order at the register and they give you pager. You can order “for here” or “to go.” If eating here, you simply go to your table and sit putting the pager on the table. If taking it to go, there’s a to go counter just to the left of the registers. If you are ordering a kid’s meal, be sure to note what all comes with it! It’s usually 2 “sides” and a drink. The sides may be carrots, grapes, apples, a cookie, fries, etc. At this location you have to go to the refrigerators and retrieve any of the cold items, including the kid’s drink.
Another random note…if you are on the Quick Service Dining Plan, or the Standard Dining Plan, as your beverage you can get a single serve alcoholic drink. Pictured here you can see some beer. This would count as your beverage if you don’t want a soda, etc!
And my choice for lunch, Pan Asian Noodles and Vegetables with Chicken:
Being the planner I am, I already had a list of all of the food I wanted to try on this trip! I had googled menus, pictures, review, etc. I knew I had to have these noodles!
My review: They were just okay. Boo. I was expecting more flavor! I did eat almost all of it, and it was a good portion size. Good mix of vegetables, chicken and noodles. I don’t think I’d order it again here though! I might try the Pork Fried Rice or the Hot Beef and Cheddar (which looked amazing!).
Stay tuned for more reviews from here! We did have a few more meals here for breakfast and lunch.
