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.

“Character breakfast”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We loved seeing Lilo & Stitch at the character breakfast. The characters came along frequently and it seemed like there was always a character at our table during our meal. The food was good and was served in family buffet style at your table. The chef was came to our table to discuss the food allergies and made us dairy free and gluten free Mickey waffles to go along with our potatoes, bacon and sausage. Overall, the characters and the atmosphere was great.

“Great food, poor service”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Booked this for my sons birthday so was looking forward to great food in a good atmosphere. Wait was short, 5 mins from check in to seating- good start but that is where the good service ended. Our server ran round like a headless chicken but completely ineffiecient! We did not get drink refils the whole time we were there even though the boys were without a drink or half an hour!! The table next to us were waiting 20 mins for there salad to turn up- another server sorted them out thank goodness which left our server very red faced. The food however was delicious and I would consider coming back due to this. The activities for the kids were fun too. Service aside the meal was very good however disney please sort out the service at this restaurant as it really did let you down

“We LOVE O'Hana!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This was our second time have dinner at O'Hana and it didn't disappoint us again! From the yummy coconut family gathering bread they give you, to the endless amounts of proteins from the skewers, it's so yummy! The yukelale is always entertaining, and the view of the castle fireworks is awesome as they always pipe in the music from "Wishes". You must save room for the bread pudding, yummy! Will go back again for sure! Maybe next time we'll try the breakfast, I've heard it is as great!

“A fantastic array of food, served to your table!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My family and I were all looking forward to eating here. We were on the DDP and everything was included.
Served "family style" which is basically a buffet brought to your table.
We started off with the bread, but for the 5 of us adults, did not last long at all but was replenished.
We were then brought the salad, followed by the pot stickers and chicken wings, which were yummy.
Straight on then we were served with endless Chicken, pork, steak and peel your own prawns. My daughter doesn't like prawns so gave hers to her dad, however, the server than came back with more and put the entire contents of a full skewer onto his plate, so there was an abundance of food. Our server kept coming and asking if we wanted more. The steak, I have to say, was done just right and melted in the mouth.
During the meal we were entertained with a singer and the coconut race. Between the entrée and dessert we were further entertained by the same man who had sung earlier who asked if anyone was celebrating a birthday or anniversary. As it was our anniversary we got up at the anniversary section and was presented with a plastic lei each. He went around each couple asking how long they had been married, which varied in length. As ours was the longest at 21 years he presented my hubby a real flowered lei to give to me as a present. This was such a lovely gesture and certainly will remain in my memory for a long time.
When we got back to the table we were then served with our dessert of bread pudding with vanilla ice-cream banana-caramel sauce - yummy! We had seconds of this too.
All-in-all we all loved this restaurant and was only outdone by "Be Our Guest". A firm favourite, which we will return to in the future. Thoroughly recommended!

“YUM!-Family favorite”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

we LOOOVE the Ohana. Highlight of visiting the Orlando area. Our group has a wide range of people and different ages and we all enjoy the experience. You get so much food and everything is delicious. We usually go during the water light parade which is very neat. Its not cheap, but worth it.
