Ohana is a character dining location during breakfast and a table service location for dinner at Disney's Polynesian Resort. For breakfast you can meet Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto in their Hawaiian outfits whilst you enjoy a family style buffet breakfast.
Ohana serves only breakfast and dinner and prices range from $35-$60 per person plus sales tax. If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, Ohana is one Table Service credit. Both breakfast and dinner are all you can eat family style buffets with a Hawaiian twist.
Ohana is extremely popular so I highly recommend getting your reservation as early as possible to avoid disappointment. There have been multiple times we have been unable to book to visit Ohana. Breakfast is definitely easier to get a reservation for; I have still not been able to get in for dinner.
If you arrive to the Polynesian by the resort monorail, stay on the level you enter at as Ohana is located on the first floor of the Polynesian. Check in is located at a podium on the opposite side that you enter on. There might be a bit of a wait when you check in for your table, so take a look around the lobby if you can.
Before you enter Ohana, you might already meet a character. It always depends on the day to who you meet first, so be prepared for that!
You will then be greeted by a server, or a cousin as you are referred to at Ohana, and taken to your table with a portion of pineapple bread. This bread is incredible - I don't like pineapple but I like the bread! Your server will then ask if you want some of the juice (passion fruit and orange juice) which is often referred to as jungle juice. Definitely have some! I then also got a coffee and, for good measure and no meal in Disney is complete without it, chocolate milk. This is all included in the price of your meal, so make sure you make the most of it!
Then the food came out.
This skillet is massive and the photo doesn't do it justice. For breakfast you get Mickey waffles, maple syrup, eggs, breakfast potatoes, thick cut bacon, biscuits and sausages. This is a family style buffet and you can ask for more of anything you want. We asked for more waffles and ended up with a mini skillet of them.
During this time, the characters will come round and take photos and interact with you. They don't stay as long as I have had in previous character dining experiences, but it was a good amount of time to make sure you had photos. The characters also do a routine with all the children (and big kids!) around the restaurant with instruments and it is the cutest!
The food is pretty standard breakfast food you can expect in Disney, but the presentation of it, the views over the Polynesian and the experience of Ohana make it worth it.
It is pretty pricey if you are a family of four and you aren't fussed on meeting the characters, you can get a similar meal at a quick service location for a fraction of the price. But if you are looking for an experience for your breakfast and you love the Polynesian as much as I do, definitely give it a go.
