Disney Polynesian Restaurant – Ohana

Disney Restaurant Review Ohana

Disney Polynesian Dinner is served family style where they bring everything out in large dishes and place them on the table.  Be sure to see pictures below!  It is truly a Wonderful Hawaiian Feast.  A friend of mine insisted that we try dinner at ‘Ohana.  We were reluctant especially since we had already planned our meals out and made all our reservations.  We typically only book character meals.  

Dining with Characters

Even though my children are getting older, they still enjoy eating dinner with the characters.  About a month before our trip, we called the Disney Dining reservation number and tried to make a reservation on-line daily to see if we could get a reservation at ‘Ohana.  There were no reservations for dinner at ‘Ohana the entire week we were going.  Luckily, my daughter Carly checked every day and found one cancellation which we took.  It was meant to be for us to try ‘Ohana for the first time.

Disney Polynesian ‘Ohana Restaurant the best meal at Disney World

The dinner at Disney Polynesian ‘Ohana was the best meal we have ever had at Disney World.  We enjoyed it so much.  The Hawaiian bread was excellent.  It was sweet and delicious!  The salad had an excellent honey-lime dressing.  The appetizer was Pork Dumplings and Honey Chicken Wings which were both exquisite.  The stir-fry vegetables were appetizing, and we had a side dish of noodles.  These noodles were so delicious and were probably one of my favorite things besides the shrimp.  The noodles tasted like they had some coconut milk and pineapple juice on them.  

Meat, Meat, and More Meat

The main dish was meat, meat, and more meat brought to the table on large skewers.  The skewers were filled with either chicken, pork, steak, and, my favorite, shrimp.   Each of the different meats was moist and had a different Hawaiian glaze on it.  The food is delicious, and it is all you can eat.  Whatever you do, save room for the dessert.  The Bread Pudding with the Banana Caramel Sauce was some of the best bread pudding I have ever had.  It was just Awesome!!

I asked each of my family members what they enjoyed doing the most on this Disney trip.  My plan is to write a post about each family members’ favorite things to do in Disney.  Casey, my son who will be 17 this August, said eating at ‘Ohana Disney Polynesian restaurant was his absolute favorite meal!  He enjoyed this restaurant.  I am sure it had a lot to do with him being 16, and he could eat all the delicious steak and shrimp he could possible hold.  This is one meal that when we were finished eating, even Casey was full.

  1. Wow, everything looks so delicious. I can see why Casey got hooked on the shrimp.

    • Don, Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a message. Be sure to check out the Roark update. Hopefully, I am going to start doing a monthly update. Have a great day today! Love, Diane

  2. Was looking for inspiration for my “at home Ohana” dinner tonight and found your great post. Made me even more excited. Thanks.

    • Kelly,

      I hope you enjoyed your meal from Ohana. We really love it. I just wish I would not eat so much so that I could eat more of the WONDERFUL Bread Pudding. YUM! I would love to hear your experience at Ohana if you get a chance.
      Thanks so much for stopping by.
      Blessings,
      Diane
