Description: 'Ohana restaurant in Disney's Polynesian Resort offers a Character Dining breakfast and a Polynesian-inspired dinner menu. Both meals are served family-style—quite fitting since 'ohana means family in the Hawaiian language.Character Dining at BreakfastJoin Lilo and Stitch for 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast! Feel like you're a part of their intergalactic 'ohana when you join them for an American breakfast influenced by the exotic tastes of the Polynesian islands. Menu selections include scrambled eggs, Island-style fried potatoes, Hawaiian pork sausages, smoked bacon and a variety of fresh fruits and breads.Family-Style Polynesian DinnerWhen the doors open for dinner, the bellow of conch shells welcome you to 'Ohana. Adding to the island ambiance are tikis, storytellers and coconut races, in which children sweep coconuts with brooms across the hardwood floor down the center of the restaurant. The family fun continues as everyone is encouraged to play with hula hoops and dance to island music.The 'Ohana servers add to the festive atmosphere, as they dash between tikis and tropical greenery to bring plates of Polynesian specialties to your table. Choose from skewers roasted over an expansive 18-foot oak fire pit, and side dishes include stir-fried vegetables, fried dumplings, lo mein noodles and a salad starter.

“A Great Experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We went to the Ohana character breakfast with Lilo and Stitch. My son loves Stitch so, this was a must on our trip.

The characters are great! We got to see Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto! They came to our table and were great with the kids. I gave Mickey a hug and Stich stuck up behind me, it was fun!

Ohana is beautiful, you can see Cinderella's castle from the waiting area!!!

The breakfast was served family style in a skillet. We had eggs, potatoes, sausages, bacon, sweet rolls and fruit. We all loved Lilo & Stitch's favorite fruit drink. We drank a lot that, it was great!

“Tough to decide on breakfast vs dinner...do both!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We have eaten here for breakfast and dinner..only breakfast is a character meal, so the kids like that the best! However dinner is unlimited meats on skewers that they bring to your table and includes dancing and parades/coconut races for the kids. My husband and I enjoyed the dinner meal immensely...it was different and served differently than any other place...breakfast is the regular breakfast fare (but there's nothing wrong with Mickey waffles!!) It felt like two different restaurants, so if you can, do Ohana for both. As a bonus, walking around the Polynesian is fantastic and if you eat late, you can walk out on the beach afterwards and watch the light parade on the lagoon or the magic kingdom fireworks.

“Easy Character Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

My husband and I took our two year old to the character breakfast here in late April. I had tried to get into Chef Mickey's since we were staying at the Contemporary, but was unable. O'Hana ended up being a wonderful breakfast and character experience. The food is served family style- a fresh fruit platter and basket of bread, then eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes served on a platter, and Mickey waffles passed around. You can ask for more anytime and I think my husband drank two carafes of juice on his own. The food was pretty good. Some people may prefer to have a menu to choose from, but with very young children, I found the family style to be very handy. We didn't have to flip through a menu, wait to place our order then wait for the food. It just comes out. They are also very helpful if there are any dietary restrictions or allergies.

The characters are spaced out through the room (Mickey, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch) and about every 30 minutes they have a parade. Waiters hand out maracas and everyone can line up and parade around the room with the characters. The down side is that it takes Mickey and Pluto much longer to make the rounds than Lilo and Stitch. We were seated immediately after Mickey had left our table and had to wait nearly an hour!!! for him to return. Our waiter kindly mentioned to Mickey that we had paid up and were waiting, so he stepped over quickly for us to say hi.

All in all, it was a great breakfast and our son enjoyed eery minute of it! We will definitely go back to this breakfast (maybe try the dinner?) during our next visit.

“Our first ever meal in Disney!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was our first time to Disney! We kicked it off with breakfast here. The service was AAAAAMAZING, the characters were great, the kids had a blast with the dancing. It was so great that my daughter started crying when she walked in and sat down. The food was eh, but it wasn't too bad. The atmosphere made it all worth it. We will eat here again for sure!

“Great food and fun for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

There were 14 in our group three children. We had reservations for 6:20pm but the Disney bus were running late and got there late so we had to wait. They were able to have us all seat in one long table. First started with bread and then dumplings and chicken wings. They were delicious! Next were noodles and vegetables. The noodles were amazing!! Then came the meats - pork, chicken, shrimp and beef. Got the children up an danced the Hula. Kept bring more food and food. Dessert was so yummy bread budding and ice cream. Also chicken nuggets and fries for the children. Wait staff great. Our group liked this restaurant and my husband said it was number 1 dinner. I liked all our restaurant picks. I would go back. Also we had the dinning plan for this meal.
