Capt. Cook’s Pork Nachos

If you find yourself at the Polynesian Resort and in need of a quick snack (and Tambu Lounge hasn’t started serving appetizers – they start at 5pm), stick to the first level of the resort and visit Capt. Cook’s.

There, you’ll find this great value that’s perfect for sharing: Pork Nachos! Priced at $7.59, you’ll receive a huge plate of their Polynesian Chips (potato and fried wonton skins) topped with their tangy pulled pork, cheese, tomatoes, and pineapple salsa.

If you’re not looking to share this is EASILY a filling meal.

Polynesian Chips feature these fried wonton skins, which also come with the Crisp Breads and Dips appetizer at Tambu Lounge.

The house made chips are a crispy, thick cut variety, which stand up well.

The best part is that there were plenty of toppings to accommodate every chip on the plate, had we made it close to the bottom!

Here’s a look at their lunch and dinner menu.

1/3 lb. Angus Cheeseburger with Asian Slaw

Capt. Cook’s Pepperoni Flatbread

Offerings from the cooler cases:

Tonga Toast can also be found here at breakfast:

And if you’re looking for something sweet as opposed to savory, try one of their Lemon Ginger Cupcakes!

Or, if you’re a chocolate fiend, try their Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Cupcake!

  1. There’s another place I walked past a few times and never stopped….
    I’m not a big nachos fan (something I have with messy foods) although I definitely order and share when having some margaritas with a group of friends… The potato and wonton chips instead of tortilla chips sounds really interesting…
    Now, I must try the chocolate-macadamia cupcake!!! That looks yummy!!

  2. Last I knew, you can just order the Polynesian Chips for a few bucks, so you can still enjoy them without the mess! 🙂

  3. I had these last Sept. and they were very good! I’m planning on having them again this Oct. Personally, I haven’t been that big of a fan of Capt. Cooks (except for the Dole Whips, of course) so I was very happy to find something I really liked. We like to catch a meal here before heading down to the beach to watch the fireworks. Then we stop by on our way out and pick up a few Dole Whips.

  4. I think that on my next trip to WDW, I’m just going to spend a day wandering around the Polynesian eating everything!

  5. Terri – Their menu never really strikes me either, though the Pepperoni Flatbread was decent. The nachos were definitely something I’d order again!

    foodfitnessfantasy – It’s sooo easy to spend the day eating there! And if you need a break, just hop on the monorail and wander some of the other resorts to burn some calories!

  6. I’ve definitely zoomed over to the Polynesian in the middle of the afternoon to hit up the Tambu Lounge and have a few drinks served in pineapples to break up a long day at the Magic Kingdom. But I definitely need to get my nachos and Dole Whips on next time! 🙂

  7. Wow! Those nachos look delcious. The down side is that it’s too much for one person and I frequently do solo trips. I wish they would offer different sizes on some of their items.

  8. Many times I run to parks solo and ask for a lid for the plate so I can take a portion of it home (or back to my room if I’m staying on property), depending on the time of day. You might be able to plan some of these quick service items at the end of your park visit to bring back to the room for a snack!

    We begin our 7 night stay at the Poly in 4 days. My heart is sinking as I notice that the chicken and waffles are no longer on the menu. Gone too are the coconut curried meatballs and rice. 😦 The nachos do look fabulous though!

  10. You can still get Chicken and Waffles at Fantasy Fare Food Truck at Disney Springs as far as I know. It looks like they took them off the menu at ESPN Club at the BoardWalk Inn though.
