Hello everyone. I was wondering if you guys could give me your opinion of 'Ohana for breakfast. They have a reservation available and I was thinking of trying it out. The lady said its family style. Is it a typical breakfast? (eggs, waffles, etc.) ? Thank you!

I ate there about 4 years ago for breakfast and it was really good. It seemed pretty normal breakfast food. Waffles, eggs, sasuage, bacon & toast. They characters came around and they sis a little parade thing. It was nice. I think it would be worth trying out.

Thanks for your response! I just looked up the menu and it seems like its basically just eggs served with a bunch of sides. Just a little disappointed. I think I'll call and find another restaurant.

Still checking relentlessly for a Le Cellier lunch though. Fingers crossed that one will appear sometime.
I think 625 vs 650 sounds huge! Good Job!!I've been trying to tweak my times too and last night I changed a 755am Cape May to an 8am Cape May b/c somehow 8 doesn't sound as early as 755 What can I say, we're not really morning people. I'm still trying to bump it up to 830 and if I have to get there 5 minutes at a time I will!

So far I have a dole whip (i gotta see for myself why everyone talks about this), cupcakes, a chocolate dipped rice krispy treat, hopefully some fun holiday treats at MVMCP, churros, and we are going to have our first mickey ice cream bars. I used to go all the time when I was younger and never had one... Oops. I can't wait to see my kids enjoying one for the first time... I'm sure my son will be a hot mess after having it in his hands for 5 seconds. Is there anything else I am missing? I am hoping to get some of this stuff to take home and enjoy since we won't be able to eat all this is 2 days.

Pretty much all the character breakfasts are similar. The buffets have a larger selection, but IMO, the food is fresher and hotter when it is brought to your table. The last time we ate there, we had eggs, sausages, Mickey waffles, potatoes, toast, and yummy pineapple bread along with tropical fruit juice and other drinks.

If you like Lilo & Stitch, 'Ohana is a must! Stitch is a hoot to interact with. They also have a fun "conga line" type parade/dance around the restaurant every 45 mins or so.

Resort Decision to Make: Advice? Thoughts? Help?

The room only fall discounts/discounts aren't what I hoped they would be. And I never got a good room only pin, as I have for the last 3 years. So now I'm stuck with a decision to make and just want to make the decision and get it over with. But I need your thoughts to do so! I currently have 2 bookings: WL Woods View room with free dining, and the Dolphin using the teacher rate. (Neither of which we have ever stayed at before.)

For 8 nights, the WL free dining package will end up costing us around $3900. If I take the 20% off room only at WL for which only a higher class room is available, it will be $3400. (The FD is a no-brainer between those 2.) The Dolphin without dining will cost us (adding in transfers since no ME included and daily resort fee - but no parking fee) around $2800. Obviously, that means if we will eat over $1100 of food, WL FD is the better bet. I had us figured at around $800 in food. We were planning on just a couple of TS meals because after doing FD our last 2 trips decided (1) it doesn't fit our kids eating styles and (2) we don't like to be tied down to ADR times. (I can definitely see Disney's full force pushing of filling up the TS restaurants by making "free" dining the "best" deal right now.)

So really, it comes down to about $300 more to stay at WL over the Dolphin with all other costs being considered. Who thinks $300 is worth the: (1) full Disney magic, (2) boat convenience to MK and monorail instead of boat to Epcot and HS (we will spend equal time at all parks), (3) gorgeous Christmas lobby, (4) having the dining plan that we really didn't want to be tied down to, (5) staying at the resort that was our first choice to begin with, and (6) a trade off for MVMCP?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Well we stayed at WL last year. I was not that impress with the QS or the TS resturants they have, didnt care for the food at the QS and the antics at the Whispering Canyon are not my style they are kind of loud and snippy and they make a big deal out of putting every ketchup bottle in the resturant on your table if you ask for ketchup. Not my idea of a nice meal. Plus the resturant is open to the lobby so it can carry into the lobby area. We walked through the lobby a few times and could hear them yelling in the resturant.
I did love the resort in general but its rooms are a little dark. Lots of hunter green and brown. And we might have rebooked but I had read a few times that there is some room reburbishing going on at WL. And I was under the impression it will still be going on in Nov.
We have always felt that a room discount is worth more to us then free food. Like you the DP just doesnt fit the way we like to eat. I would go for the room discount over FD anytime.

Well looks like Im calling to find out about renting DVC points tomorrow. Thats hubby's desicion. Apparently when I suggested the idea 3 months ago, I didnt present the information in such a way that it made sense to him. I love my husband to death but one of the things that truely erks me is no matter what the topic, he cannt just take my word for it I have to find someone/something to support my info or its not a good idea. This made remodeling our house a super fun time NOT
But oh well it is what it is. I cannt be mad at him really, he's just too cute and we are still going to Disney no matter what

I gotta disagree with you on this. Hubby and I love the WL. So much so that it is the only place we stay. Whispering Canyon can be a lot of fun if you let yourself get into the antics. But if loud and playful isn't what you are looking for they have Artist Point which is a very nice resturant. And its quite. We love the boat ride to the MK as well....it is a very relaxing way to end a long day. As far as decor it is a little on the darker side. But doesn't seem as dark as AKL. So its just a matter of what you are looking for. For us its home. Isn't it wonderful that we have so many types of resorts to choose from. That is one of the things that makes Disney so special....... To pretty much make the most of us happy.
