Thanks for the update on LeCellier (I'm so glad you like it) I'm still going back and forth with this one.

Of course, I did that too. I also dipped one of DD's celery sticks which was good as well. Don't get me wrong, the soup and pretzel bread was pretty good, just not up to the level of the hype.

Thanks for the info.

Thanks. I am back at the grind, but I will definitely finish the reviews from home.

Love the puffed french toast.

I liked Le Cellier's food. It's worth a try.

‘Ohana breaks the streak of bad service

‘Ohana is my favorite character breakfast spot at WDW. It is not the best food per se, I would give that title to Crystal Palace, I think it’s the pace of the whole meal and the friendliness of the staff, or maybe it’s the POG juice. The coffee is good too.

We arrived for 8:05 ADR at 7:55, we checked in at 8:03 and were promptly seated at 8:04. Our server was “cousin” Katie T from Akron and she was awesome. If you go to ‘Ohana for breakfast, I hope you get Katie.

‘Ohana is located in the Polynesian resort. It has characters at breakfast time and features Lilo and Stitch as well as Mickey and Pluto in Hawaiian attire. The breakfast is served family style and is all you care to eat.

Here’s what we had to eat:
Fruit plate


Pineapple bread and cinnamon raisin bread (I don’t remember any raisins, but DW insists there were)


The family style skillet


Mickey waffles


DW requested egg whites


Character shots:





Stitch got Katie into the antics by insisting that she pour him some coffee. Here’s Stitch on his coffee break.


The characters also lead the children around the restaurant in a parade with maracas.

DW and I each gave ‘Ohana 4.5 and Mrs. Potts gave it 3.5 for a total of 12.5/15

Without the DxDDP it would have cost us $84.09

Another great update. We never ate at Ohana, I guess we need to try for our Dec trip b/c we have upgraded to Deluxe dinning. I'm not really crazy about the food selection.

glad O'Hana delievered

we ate there for our first time last June and just loved it too....that juice was YUMMY!!!!!, my kids didn't really like the juice so that meant more for me

Stitch is just so awesome there...he came by are table twice once in the autograph round and then once to play a trick on me....I was signing our tip reciept when behind my shoulder a heard a "PSST!" I assume when I turn around it will be one of my kids....not.

It was a big blue head and I jumped out of my seat

Stitch and my DD Aldine got the best laugh out of that!

we also love the interaction at Ohana Breakfast - I like to let people know that come after the first seatings - that Ohana seats by sections - so the characters go around to each person in a section - when that section is cleared completely then the Ohana staff seat the next group of people waiting - which means -

that waiting area can be pretty full of people!!

so we usually do this on our last day - sit and relax, no worries, Ohana time!!

I didn't find the waiting at Ohana any worse then the other breakfast places. It was better then our wait at Norway. But when we went to Kona Cafe for breakfast, there was a huge line to check in to Ohana.

Yeah it took awhile for Aurora to actually try the juice, but when she did it went straight to her head and she literally bounced out of 'Ohana chanting "pog juice, pog juice, pog juice". Ariel won't touch the stuff, so more for me too.

I think that they tend to do this at a lot of the character breakfasts. We had a very long wait at Norway. When we were done eating, the entire place was empty and there was a huge line outside, including a guy who got there before we checked in.

Hoop de Doo Revue – DDs’ favorite dinner

There wasn’t much cheese on the menu, but there was plenty on stage. The Hoop de Doo Revue is a cheesy, corny vaudeville style stage show and we loved every minute of it. Especially after a few glasses of beer (pictured below). The show was a lot of fun and we were very pleasantly surprised by the food. We expected quantity, but I have to say the quality of the food is good too.

You start off with a salad. It was pre-made and it was delicious.


And cornbread – also delicious


Drinks are included here, so here’s DW’s sangria


And my beer. Our waitress was smart and just left me the pitcher.


On to the main course – fried chicken, ribs, beans, mashed potatoes. We also requested mac & cheese for DD’s, especially Ariel who wouldn’t particularly like the food at HDD.






Dessert is strawberry shortcake.


The girls got into the act too.


Overall, we were all pleasantly surprised with both the food and the show and we had a blast.

I gave it a 4.5 and we’ll definitely be back.
DW gave it a 5.
Mrs. Potts gave it a 5 too
Total score 14.5/15 – the top score so far

Without DxDDP it would have cost $218.95

You're right, we were there on the 18th. That's funny. We flew home on Sunday. I miss Disney, but I am actually happy to take a break from all of that food.
