Youre already going to Chef M and Tusker, I would drop Ohana breakfast. Even thou I like ohana characters and food, & atmosphere, no point seeing Mickey 3 times. Also, I honestly didnt care for the food at dinner. Slimy wings, dry potstickers, poor quality meat. Pork & beef were gross. Id probably drop the dinner ADR too (but im probably in the minority with this). Lol.

I would do both. Two totally different meals. One character, one not...totally different food too.

I wasn't a big fan of the 'Ohana breakfast, but if you have small kids they may enjoy it. The food is nothing to write home about (but the specialty breads and the lilikoi juice are good).

However, I loved the 'Ohana dinner! We'll be doing that again.

I would keep both if you've never been as they are both great, IMO. But if you do change, Cape May at the BC is one our favorites and is a must do for us every trip (for both breakfast and dinner).

I'm a big fan of the breakfast at 'Ohana. It's your standard breakfast fare (eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, fruit, Mickey waffles), but it's all quite tasty. Character interaction is decent and kids (and daring adults) get to participate in a parades with the characters around the room. Down side is that it gets very loud, but the interactions between Lilo and Stitch are hilarious!

I was very disappointed in the dinner. I was really looking forward to it, but the food was just not impressive. A lot of quantity, but I was expecting more quality (from a Disney restaurant). I thought the noodles were your typical cheap Chinese lo mein and the meats were all a little chewy. The salad was good and I enjoyed the wings, particularly with the various dipping sauces. And the bread pudding with Bananas Foster sauce was delicious, but really: how can you go wrong with that??

Other suggestions:
Breakfast - 1900 Park Fare for Character Breakfast. Though it repeats Tigger and Pooh, Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins always put on a good show. Since they're face characters, they tend to spend a lot more time interacting (making for more memories!). The food selection is also more varied and all very good.
Kona Cafe for a la carte breakfast. The Tonga Toast...

Dinner - Kona Cafe. Everything I've had has been very good, and the macadamia nut butter is amazing
Cape May Cafe. If you're into seafood, the buffet is really good. If you're not a seafood lover, there are still several options available, but it may not be worth the trip.

We did the breakfast there a couple years ago. It was very very yummy! The character experience was cool too. I would think dinner would be a little more crowded, so I'm glad we went with the breakfast.

The breakfast at ohana is pretty awesome. The atmosphere is gorgeous and its one of the most relaxing character breakfasts around. The food is great! They serve you, so all you have to do is sit and wait for characters. stitch is hilarious!! He put mickey waffles in his ears and started running around and teasing mickey with it. Lol.

Keep'em......2 very good meals, & very different experiences.......Ohana's Breakfast was my 2nd fav. breakfast but just got pushed down to 3rd, only because of 1900 PF.

The dinner is just different than most...Similar to your local Brazilian rodizio type of dinner. Lots of food, & the bread pudding is 1 of the yummiest desserts that there are..
