Wow, first of all, how rude of the entertainer lady (idk what to call her either! lol!). You are youngish looking, but not underage imo! And Miguel doesn't look old either! Is there an age difference at all? I have just assumed you were both around the same age And if you aren't close in age, it's certainly not enough of a difference to where a cm should have made him out to be robbing the cradle! Sheesh!

But, other than that it sounds like your first night was amazing! Great food, great company and great fireworks to cap it off

What a lovely first night!!! I make the 'Ohana recipe bread pudding several times a year at home - it's amazing!!! But I've never actually had it at 'Ohana! It's on the to-do list though! Sounds like an amazing viewing area for Wishes! Can't wait to read more!

That is a lot of food!! But it looks like very delicious food.

I love the dress you wore this night, it's very pretty. Sounds like it was a perfect way to spend your first honeymoon evening.

I love watching Wishes from the Poly, it's a nice way to spend the night, see the fireworks and not have to worry about the Magic Kingdom crowds.

The good thing about not checking the DIS for a while is that I get to read TWO great updates on your TR!

Reading about your Poly arrival really reminded me about all the great things about that resort. I think I am finally over my room experience and can go back to loving the place again!

So that singing lady is just obnoxious. When we were there in May, I couldn't help but get the impression that she thinks she's 'famous' and those kids should be honored to work with her. She was being so demanding when teaching them the dance, it was getting annoying listening to her correct them over and over when we were just trying to enjoy our dinner. I like the guy entertainer much better!

I love watching Wishes from the beach of the Poly, it's a much more relaxed atmosphere. Perfect way to end your arrival day!
I can't believe people kept thinking you were a teenager. I would've thought the wedding bands would have been a hint that you weren't a kid.

How rude of that singing lady to say that! I've been to 'Ohanas about 15 times and she is ALWAYS there, I never get the guy. Her voice grates on me and the way she keeps talking over and over on the microphone about the kids or whatever. We ask for a table around the side of the restaurant when we check in and we've been pretty lucky not being right next to her so the noise from the restaurant kind of drowns her out. I would love 'Ohanas even more (if that's possible ) if they would just play nice Polynesian music and have a designated area where the kids can do their things instead of all around the restaurant.

Anyways, off my soap box now, what a perfect first evening at WDW! I always love arrival day/night when you feel like you have tons of time left and are just so excited to be there .

Wow! I cannot believe how the "entertainment lady" talked to you. I can feel your pain though, I am constantly getting mistaken for a teenager. Sometimes I don't know if I should feel complimented or offended by it All things aside, I'm glad you had a nice meal at O'hanas - it's our new favorite as well!

I don't know why but I have a classic trend of being called young at Disney too... I know I look younger than I am but it always seems to be worse at Disney!

When I first turned 21 I was staying at the Boardwalk with my parents and went downstairs to get a cup of coffee one morning. The lady working asked if I was even old enough to be drinking coffee
The ME driver that trip was also very surprised to hear that I was 21... he thought I didn't even look old enough to drive

My last two trips I've had experiences ordering alcohol in World Showcase. Both times I've gotten drinks in the French Pavilion the bartender asks to see my I.D. then exclaimed "24! But that is my age too. You look so little!" And once in Japan when we were there with my parents and ordered a bottle of Plum Wine. She asked to see my I.D. and said something along those lines too "24? That's my age too! I would not have believed it!"

I guess they're just so use to dealing with younger people? It certainly gets old after a while though...

And don't worry, I never noticed the fireworks make shapes until we took a Wishes Cruise last December. DBF and I were sitting in the back of the boat when I exclaimed "Hey! Those fireworks make Christmas Presents!" Needless to say I was laughed at. A lot.

How rude of the entertainment lady to say that! I have the same problem at Disney. When we were there for my college graduation, I kept getting handed children's menus! I know I look young, but come on! Just keep telling yourself, when they're all old and wrinkly, we'll still be young and beautiful.

It seems like you guys had a perfect first night. Well, except for the entertainment lady. If she would have made that comment to me, I would have said something snarky, like "do you want to see my id?"

That's just me though. Can't contain the snark monster.

How weird that you got such strange comments from the CMs there. Between the daiquiri and then the 16 yr old you must have looked really young! I think you should take it as a great complement! Btw, did cousin card you when you ordered the drink?

What a romantic night watching Wishes! Did they pump out the music to the beach?

sounds like a lovely first evening - nice to stay 'local' after the long drive there!

That is strange about the entertainer and server making comments about your age?! Ohana was one of the few places we got ID-ed this trip (joked we must be looking old now ).. the server told us every single soft drink and soda that was available.. then I said "can I have a Lapu Lapu please?"

Looking forward to reading about the next day!

Great update, I love 'Ohana! I can't stand that entertainment lady, I wish there were times you could go and she wouldn't be there! She's the reason Brandon isn't looking forward to going back this year!

Watching Wishes from the Poly beach sounds amazing, if we don't watch Wishes in MK on the night of the 40th anniversary, I'm definitely watching from the Poly!

I love 'Ohana! I tried it for the first time on a trip last April and instantly fell in love. I loved everything about it, especially the Lapu Lapu!

You guys looked really cute in your outfits with your leis. I've never watched Wishes from the Poly before, but you've convinced me to give it a try!

Hello from another Georgian! Your wedding pictures are awesome. I can't believe the lady at O'hana's. Very rude. Looking forward to hearing about more of your trip.
