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.

Great food! It is a family style buffet so they bring everything to your table. The dessert was the best part. We had to wait a little past our reservation time and our silverware was dirty, but other than that this place is great!!!!!

“quite simply the best at wdw”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

not much i can add to all the other comments. We loved the food it was all excellent, if I think about it now my mouth starts to water, I loved every single mouthful.
I was full but had to eat more, when I finished I couldn't possibly eat another thing but they brought the desert, well it would be rude not to try a tiny bit wouldn't it... how good could it be right? yup you guessed it too damn good. So you get the idea I love it, its great, just go and try it..and send me the left overs cheers!

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

After trying multiple times to get reservations, I was finally able to on one of my last trips to Walt Disney World, and I wasn't disappointed. Ohana has a great vibe in the restaurant, withe the decor and entertainment. The staff were great (as they always are at Disney) and last but not least the food was amazing. The service is family style, and there are lots of options.

If you are heading to Disney, this is a must-stop on your dining plan, just make sure to make a reservation early!

P.S. After dinner head out to the beach and enjoy the Magic Kingdom fireworks :)

“Best restaurant in disney”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Disney has many really good restaurants but this is disney dining at it's best. If you only ever eat at one disney restaurant this should be the one. It's family style which I am I fan of. The chicken is perfect. The grilled shrimp maybe the best in the world. We have been many time's and they never disappoint. Adding mac n cheese and french fries for the little ones was brilliant. This is a must do at disney!!!

“Simply a must for dinner!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Ohana is not to be missed for the delicious wide variety of food and atmosphere. Make your reservation months in advance and bring your appetite. We are a family of 4 and come here every time we visit Disney. Ohana is located inside the Polynesian hotel which is on the monorail. Once seated you start of with bread and salad (everything is served family style). This is followed by noodles, dumplings, vegetables. Next your server brings to the table skewers of grilled pork, steak, chicken and shrimp that are the most flavorful wood fire cooked meats you will have! Save room for dessert too! We were there rather late at night and got to watch the fireworks out the window which was an amazing treat during dinner. Waitstaff were excellent. When we checked in, there was a grumpy customer at the desk complaining about the wait time and the lady behind the desk handled her with a smile and an ear. We did have to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time but it was still reasonable. Do make a reservation early before your trip or you won't get in here.
