A very unexpected gift from friends. I've been told these may date back to the late '70s or early '80s ...


Meanwhile, at the Polynesian, they've gussied up the construction area in the GCH:

But from the photos I've seen on Tikiman's Facebook page, it appears to be getting pretty ugly out at the closed pool and the beach. The bungalows are coming along, however, and are now getting paint, windows, etc.

A small detail, but notable:

The original name will also be in the delightfully vintage font that graced the Polynesian Village in the 70s.

That's the temporary map they're using this summer, right?

Yep, but it's got the new name!

The Disney blogosphere is all atwitter about the re-opening of Captain Cook's. Nothing to get too excited about. Tikiman has all the latest news here:

There was some grumbling about the menu, but my thought is that they may be waiting for the opening of Trader Sam's and the new GCH refurb is completed before rolling out any major menu upgrades.

Makes sense. Digging those new travel posters. Lovely art.
