Review of Ohana (Dinner)

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve written, but today I am hungry and thinking about dinner at one of my all time favorite on property restaurants, OHANA!

So when you view the Disney website and visit the Ohana menu, I don’t think it quite does the restaurant justice. It is an all you can eat, family style restaurant. If you leave this place hungry, there might be something wrong with you. Also, I should warn, this is a meat eaters paradise!

When you get to Ohana you’ll be welcomed to your table, and you’ll be served with some delicious pineapple coconut bread and a mixed green salad. I will start by saying a like salad. I’ll even eat it for lunch, but man do I LOVE carbs… I’ve even described myself as a “Carbiterian” on more than one occasion. So with that being said, I will say their bread is absolutely outstanding. It’s not too heavy, and the flavor of the pineapple and coconut is not too much, it’s subtle, but just enough!

Then comes my FAVORITE part, the appetizer. Now, don’t get me wrong the main course meats are amazing, but the pork dumplings… oh the pork dumplings. Along with the pork dumplings you’ll also get honey-coriander chicken wings. Both are amazing, but the pork dumplings keep me craving them in between trips. I’m a big fan of potstickers, but nothing compares to these. I’m salivating even as I type this, just thinking of them. They are without a doubt my favorite part of Ohana. And guess what… it’s all you can eat, so you can always ask for more!


Along with the appetizers you’ll also be served the side dishes of stir fry veggies and teriyaki noodles! Both are great, but now it’s time for the meats. For your main course, a server will bring you skewers of all you can eat meat. Your options are chicken, steak, and shrimp. All are grilled over a wood fire and delivered to your table on a skewer. Your server puts it in a bowl for you to enjoy. You can have one, two, or all three meats. I usually go for all three, at least a few pieces of each. With the the meat you’ll also get some amazing dipping sauces. It’s definitely worth trying it all!

So you’ve eaten your dinner and you’re about ready to roll out of the restaurant, but oh wait… there is dessert! And it is in my top 5 favorite desserts on Disney property- Ohana’s bread pudding. It’s absolutely delectable, and is served with a caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream. So as amazing as the dumplings, and meats are, don’t forget to save room for dessert, because you won’t regret it!

So my official statement about Ohana- “Be sure to check out Ohana. Your tastebuds will be tantalized from the bread at the beginning of the meal, to the bread pudding at the end of your meal. ”

Day 8 in review

Today was our last non-park day of the trip. We took today off because we were transferring resorts. We decided to resort hop on the last two days, and Disney makes resort hopping super easy!

All we had to do when were all packed up was call bell services! They arrived at our door a few minutes after we called, and collected our luggage! The delivered it to Pop Century Resort for us! When transferring luggage between resorts the delivery could happen between 1 and 5 pm.  Ours came around 4 and in my mind is such a great service that Disney offers!

So in our original plan we were going to head straight from French Quarter to Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon, however I received a text by 9am saying that our room was ready at Pop Century.  We decided to use Uber to transport ourselves to Pop Century, rather than wait and transfer busses etc, plus this allowed us to get settled in our new room a little sooner.

After we were settled in our new room we did head to Blizzard Beach for a little while.  We hit the lazy river and a few of the slides.  It was a fairly cool day for Orlando (around 78-80 degrees) and very overcast, so Blizzard Beach was not packed at all.  We didn’t say long because we did want to enjoy our day of rest

We further deviated from our plans by canceling our reservation for Beaches and Cream and picking up a reservation at Kona Cafe.  We essentially did this because we really wanted to go back to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto again!  I am so glad that our plans were flexible and that we were able to make that switch!  We had an amazing meal at Kona and followed by more amazing beverages at Trader Sams, and another souvenir glass!
