Ohana is a popular family-style restaurant located in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World in Florida.
The restaurant is inspired by the Hawaiian concept of ohana, meaning “family,” and serves up a variety of Polynesian-inspired dishes.
Guests can enjoy a dinner experience that begins with a warm welcome and a Hawaiian-style welcome lei, followed by a meal that features all-you-care-to-enjoy dishes served family-style.
In addition to the delicious food, Ohana boasts stunning views of the Magic Kingdom fireworks display, which guests can enjoy from their seats in the restaurant. This paired with the live ukelele entertainment while you dine is what makes Ohana one of the best places to dine in Walt Disney World.
Menu items include grilled steak, chicken, and shrimp skewers, pork dumplings, noodles, stir-fried vegetables, and a bread pudding dessert. Ohana also serves breakfast, which features a character experience with Lilo and Stitch.
Ohana really lives up to its hype. The food is delicious and bountiful, which is always a bonus. But we need to talk about this bread pudding. Dessert at Ohana should not be considered an afterthought. No, no, no, save room! In fact, eat lightly through dinner for the bread pudding!
It is a coconut pineapple bread base that has been baked in a custard with bananas. Then it is served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top, and lastly a Cast Member will pour a hot pitcher of caramel sauce on top.
