Leis at 'Ohana Dinner?

I searched the forum and couldn't find anything recent on this so thought I would make a thread and ask..Do they give leis at 'Ohana when you go in for dinner still? Did they ever or is it just breakfast or not at all? I need to know if we should bring some or if they will give them there. Thanks all!

Yes they should give them at dinner and they still give them at breakfast. Even if they don't, I'm sure you could ask the Poly for some. They have plenty when you check-in at the Poly for a stay.

We just ate at 'Ohana on Tuesday night. They didn't give us leis as we walked in, but they had a singer playing Ukelele and leading the kids in songs and coconut races. She was draped in leis and invited anyone up to get one and gave all the kids one if they participated in her games.

We've never gotten leis at dinner in the 5+ times we have eaten there.
We didn't hear an invitation to go get one. Did see the kids get them if they played the games.

We ate at Kona last year for breakfast and while waiting on our table to be ready we took our picture in front of the Ohana thing (by the railing). The guy taking the picture asked if we were there for Ohana and we said no, Kona. He still gave the kids leis I thought that was really nice.....they all still have them, my girls have them hanging on their bedroom wall.

Our experience last year was the same. No leis upon arrival, but DD did take part in the singing. She was the last one in line to get a lei and the lady gave her every one she still had. DD walked away with 8-9 leis.

We got them entering the hotel,when we had drinks about an hour before dinner @ Tambu Lounge. It was very relaxing to have a drink before hand. + we had the best view of the landscape. <just wanted to say.

Our server handed them out to his tables in December. However, we did not see any other tables receiving them.

They always have them, like other have said, for things like games, birthdays, special occaisions, etc. It's just based on what entertainment they have going at the time you are there. I've seen them given to kids after the coconut races. I've seen them given out to anyone with a birthday in that month. My mom and I both got one last year for this. I've also gotten one before for participating in a hula lesson. How they are given out is not consistent, but they will always give you one if you ask.

As pp said there seems to be no consistency in how they hand the leis out. The children that participate receive one and sometimes she just walks around putting them around diner's necks (did this last year), but you can always get one by walking up when she's handing them out at the end of the game. We were just there this past week and chose not to receive one - have too many now Enjoy your dinner there - it has always been fantastic for us

We were there for dinner last week (first time eating at 'Ohana and we loved it!)

They called people up for birthdays and anniversaries and gave them leis, did not give them to the kids doing the activities (maraca parade and limbo).

But, just as we were leaving two people were walking around placing leis on people's necks as they sat at their tables. They didn't come over in our direction at all, but my DD walked up to one of them and they placed on her neck too. So we got one (which was all we needed).
