Poly CL is often sold out! But definitely call. They can upgrade your current reservation if there is availability.

If there is "no availability" the first time you call, don't give up - keep trying (every few days, or every morning if you can!) - cancellations happen! Good luck!

When I was making our reservations, I checked for CL and it was never available, so we just made gv ressies. When we checked in, we were upgraded to CL for free!! Don't undeerstand it but I won't question it either: Also, since we have been home, I have tried to price another trip at the Poly with CL and it is never available. Strange!

The path of that one is headed towards Haiti, Jamaica and on into the Gulf of Mexico. Orlando should be perfectly fine.

I seen something in your post that I have questioned myself. If you are staying CL is the dining plan worth it? I booked my trip withou and was considering the new Quick Service Plan they have available next year. Really only my younger son is the only one in the family that eats alot (he is 6 feet 5 inches tall) and the other 3 of us can survive without much. I priced out some counter service meals and thought I would come out ahead paying out of pocket. Any thoughts?

More Captain Cooks photos

My camera battery died on me so I apologize for the photo quality. SeaSpray, if you want to link to this post or want me to consolidate these photos into my other post, let me know.



Breakfast menu. I noticed the Tonga Toast at Captain Cooks tasted 'lighter' than that at Kona. Still very good!


Soda dispenser #1. This one has Minute Maid Apple Juice and Hi-C Fruit Punch.


Soda dispenser #2. This one has Barq's root beer, Vault energy drink and Coke Zero!


Dole Whip machine! The CMs told me that I won the 'Dairy Queen' award for how much dole whip I managed to get into the little cup. LOL!


Bakery case. So many yummy options! And yes, they do count as a snack or as a dessert option on the DDP.


Just a few more things. There are two dispensers for NesCrapFe (uh, Nescafe coffee), iced tea and coffee creamer. There are take out bags, plastic covers for the kids Mickey plates and adult platters available. There is also a toaster oven and a microwave available. Both times that we dined at Captain Cooks there was someone there constantly cleaning.

We originally booked LV with the DDP. Thinking about breakfasts and snacks, my kids have to be eating constantly, I upgraded to CL. Not sure if that will end up being too much food or not but I can let you know soon ..... we leave in 3 days !!!
Sorry, I know that's not much help to answer your question but I'm basically going through the same scenario and will find out soon how it turns out.

Have fun and enjoy Captain Cook's tomorrow....lucky duck!
Thanks BCV. We had a great time! I will say, Captain Cooks was packed to the gills for breakfast. We wound up eating at a table outside but that was okay. Had to keep away the ducks, birds and cranes who thought we would feed them. LOL!

Different strokes for different folks because I absolutely love the Polynesian chips. I think there are some that are fried sweet potatoes and they're yummy!

Yes, you definitely can--at least for adult meals! LOL!!! I usually rotate between having a brownie, a dole whip and then a cupcake as dessert selections.

You're very welcome! I'm also a Diet Coke addict and I haven't seen the dispenser at CCs go dry yet.

That's hilarious! I tried doing that once but I think I embarassed my DF. I think half the fun is trying to fit as much as you can in the cup.
