Openings at 'Ohana?

I've been trying every day for weeks to get a dinner ADR at 'Ohana for our trip the last week of February. Who knew it would be booked solid at that time of year, geesh. Just wondering if anyone has ever had luck snagging an ADR there, close to their trip. I've seen ADR slots pop up for other popular restaurants, but so far none for 'Ohana. Is it THAT popular??

I have not had the issue but yes 'Ohana is that popular. But over the years on the DIS I have read of people snagging one toward the last minute. Just keep trying.

Thanks; I will keep trying, as that's all I can do. I did notice they had openings at 9:30 or later, but I want a dinner ADR, not a bedtime one.

Yes, 'Ohana is one of the most popular restaurants in DW, but cancellations will come up because of the credit card guarantee. You just have to be lucky enough to be online checking when a cancellation re-enters the system. Keep checking multiple times a day.

I've been trying for Feb 28th since the first week of October, so 5 months out. Wow.

So it's not just you!

Last time I was looking for a hard to get ressie, a CM told me that a lot of people cancel 24 to 48 hours before, especially with the new credit card policy. Good luck! We are trying it for the first time ourselves early February and I have co-workers whose eyes roll back into their heads whenever Ohana is mentioned. Bread pudding looks fantastic!

Thanks for that tip. And the bread pudding is the main reason we want to go there.

I cannot recall the last time we booked anything 180 days out. I doubt we ever have honestly, yet we have eaten at ohana almost every time for dinner and this last visit we did both breakfast and dinner.

Just keep trying several times a day and I would bet you'll get lucky as long as you can be a little flexible on time. good luck!

I am OCD about planning lol...we are going end of March first week in April and I have already made all my ADRs. The only place I wasn't able to get into was be our guest I was trying everyday but I just gave up lol. I was able to get every other place (even ohana) so I am happy with that lol. I made all the ADRs on January 1st

We leave for our trip tomorrow and had a hard time getting Ohana. A week out I started finding them and ended up with three until I decided on the night we wanted! Don't give up!

I've booked within a couple weeks at 'Ohana at busy times (August and March). Granted, my dinner was at 9:30 and 9:50, but still, I got in.

I booked dinner for Monday night 180 days out and got a 5:15 slot, which is preferable in my opinion.

We got one the same day when we were there in October during free dining. We had been planning to park hop, but decided we would rather eat outside a park. I refreshed the app a few times while we decided where to go and it popped up. We then canceled our ADR for several days later, so somebody got that. So there is hope!
