This May was our first visit to Ohana for dinner. I must say that the food was very good and the came quickly and often and the wait staff was very accomodating. What really ruined my whole meal was the the entertainment. There was a woman playing the ukelele and singing that was incredibly annoying. First, she couldn't sing on key if her life depended on it and her voice was like nails on a chalkboard. She also was far to loud. It was like a very very very very intentionally bad Vegas lounge act. If she had been a bit campy, maybe it would have worked, but it was just painful. I would only return if she was not going to be there.
The served buffet breakfast to the table left little choice and if you didn't like it you went hungry. The speciality bread was a good if you liked that thing but if not there was no alterative.
On a plus the character interaction was good.
Having researched a lot on here I made a reservation for Ohana in April 2013. May I start off by saying I have already made a return reservation!
Ohana is a hidden gem!
With a family atmosphere, entertainment for adults and children and with food you cannot fault Ohana is a must do.
The food is fantastic , juicy and well cooked, with a great selection of meats and shrimp with a large salad and noodles. The all you can eat style does not disappoint.
The dessert was very tasty too and a great end to a great meal.
Top tip don't eat before hand, you need all the room you can get for this amazing food.
I've eaten dinner here with family many times. We've never had a bad experience. We typically time our dinner with the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. The food is fantastic, service typically is top notch. Its family style serving so as soon as you sit down and get your drinks order, the food starts to come out shortly after. Ohana's has always been packed when I've gone so its not exactly a quiet atmosphere. But its a memorable experience and it has become a staple of our vacations to WDW.
Only drawback is you can feel rushed. No one ever says anything, but I think most people are taken back how quick the food comes out and can mistake that for the servers rushing you. But, if you understand that the food will come quick, you'll understand that they are not trying to rush you.
