Thanks for the tip! I'm downloading it now and will test it out!

I don't like pulp either but I've never noticed 'pulp' like OJ pulp in my lapu lapu. Although I adore pineapple so I may not have cared...or maybe the rum got to me before I could formulate a sentence...

They make tons of yummy virgin drinks - frozen and on ice - for the kids! And yes, get it in a pineapple but be ready to spork out your money

A couple years ago, the Poly served an X-rated lemonade. It was X-fusion liqueur (passion fruit flavored) with vodka and minute maid lite. It was delicious!!! I now buy the ingredients at home for a refreshing drink that is not too sweet (and lower on calories with a mixer that has only 10 calories per 12 oz!) Now they have a poolside lemonade you can get at just about any pool bar at Disney. It's very similar but I'm not sure they use the X-fusion brand anymore. And if you bring your own vodka, you could certainly mix it with the minute maid lite they have at the refillable mug station - it tastes good just like that!

I was just reading about some new cupcakes at Capt. Cook's. They sound delicious!
http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012/0...ooks-cupcakes/

So what do all of you think of Capt. Cook's? What is your favorite item there (ok, I know Dole whips but besides those)? I am interested in trying the Grown Up or Adult Grilled Cheese. They look pretty good. We won't be eating there too much due to being in the parks and ADR's but probably will stop in our first day and our pool day.

My dh loves the Adult Grilled Cheese. We haven't eaten too many meals there, but I don't remember eating anything I didn't like.

OMG ... chocolate macadamia cupcakes!! Those look delish!!

My favourite at CC's is the turkey club with the homemade chips (I don't like blue cheese, so have never tried the adult grilled cheese). DH also likes the noodle bowl.

OMG! Those cupcakes look amazing!!!

DH and I both love the Adult Grilled Cheese and the Aloha Pork Sandwich. Sometimes we each get one and split. We also really like the Margherita Flatbread when they have it and the Stir Fry Noodles. The Pork Nachos are a pass as is the Polynesian Salad. I wanted to like both but they were just... meh.

Great now I'm hungry!

I just pulled up the cupcake page..................

AND HAD A MOUTHGASM! I love all things tart and lemony, I can't wait to try to that cupcake!

As far as CC's goes, we usually just use it for breakfast, because you can get Tonga Toast with bacon. I think I had an underwhelming flat bread there once. If we don't have reservations for dinner and are eating "in", I usually go up to the Kona bar and get some sushi. The Kona Crab Cake Roll is divine!

As a side note to that review on the food blog, does anyone else get a tad, just a little, irrationally irritated that so many people suggest you, "just take a quick ride to the Poly and sit and eat?" I KNOW it's open to all, I KNOW that you don't have to be a resort guest to sit on the beach or eat at CC's, but there is a small part of me that is always screaming on the inside for people to NOT take that advice.

Yes, I'm terrible, I know.
