Our 12 Favorite Counter Service Restaurants at Disney World

4 – Capt. Cook’s @ Polynesian Village Resort

While Capt. Cook’s is not located at either a Disney theme park or at Disney Springs, it IS still on Disney property – at the gorgeous Polynesian Village Resort. We place Capt. Cook’s counter service so high on the list because of their Hawaiian-inspired dishes that will have guests asking which Hawaiian island they are on! Try the famous Tonga Toast for breakfast. For lunch and dinner Capt. Cook’s serves up favorites such as the Big Kahuna sandwich, Thai Coconut Meatballs, Fish Tacos, Hawaiian Flatbread, and the Aloha Pork Sandwich among many other selections. The best part is anyone is welcome to dine at the resort restaurants – just catch the monorail on in to the Polynesian for these fantastic flavors.


About Mike & Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire as many MagicBands as possible while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 13 years and are blessed with two children - our 8-year-old daughter and soon to be 2-year-old son. As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
