I haven't been to ohana but we really liked Park Fare! It was by far the most reasonably priced character buffet if you are paying OOP. The character interaction was great!

Are you going for food or characters? If going for characters, your choice will probably depend on who you want to see. DH and I have been to both for breakfast. We enjoyed the character interaction at 1900. We saw Pooh, Tigger, the Mad Hatter, Alice and Mary Poppins. There were lots of choices on the buffet. That being said, we don't plan on doing it again.

We will definitely repeat Ohana for breakfast. It is served family style, but is still all you can eat. We both preferred the food here to the food at 1900. The characters were Mickey, Pluto (I think) and Lilo and Stitch.

I will assume we're talking about breakfast...

It all depends on which characters you want to see. Both are very different. I like the food variety at 1900, but i dont like the characters that much. I like the characters at Ohana better.

I like the fact that Ohana is served family style, all you can eat. I also like the fact that Ohana atmosphere is far prettier than 1900. I think 1900 PF is dull and drab and is in need for a makeover.

if youre looking for more food variety, you will like 1900. Particularly the omlette station. If youre looking for a prettier and more relaxing atmosphere then ohana is the place for you. Bonus at ohana is that you can sit back and chill out and wait for characters instead of constantly getting up to get more food.

We've done both, and while we enjoyed them both, Ohana seems to have better food. On our trip back this summer, we are going to repeat Ohana, but I'm going to echo previous posters and suggest you go where there are more characters you want to see. I'll admit part of what draws me to Ohana is Pluto My favorite!

Since it is you and your sisters, I'd recommend the 1900 Park Fare Dinner. Lady Tremaine and the step sisters are quite entertaining, especially if you interact with them. We've only eaten breakfast at Ohana, but the food is mediocre for me at both Ohana and 1900 Park Fare. There is a better selection at 1900 Park Fare though. I would use this as your character entertainment dinner and then choose a signature restaurant for a different night to enjoy the food. Have a great trip!

The step sisters are HILARIOUS! Omg theyre so funny. However, the food was awful at dinner. Good luck with your decision!

I agree, it's all about the characters.

My wife and I have been to both. Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland were the big names at 1900; while Mickey, Lilo & Stitch were the great ones at Ohana.

I have to agree with a previous post; I liked 1900, but would much sooner go back to Ohana.

I'm in the minority - I HATE 1900PF. I've been for breakfast and dinner. Food is fine as are the characters but it's underwhelming and cramped. Not a fan.

Ohana, on the other hand, is really fun, delicious, and has lots of atmosphere.

I think it depends on what characters you want to see ('Ohana has Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto. 1900 Park Fare has Alice, Mary Poppins, Mad Hatter, Tigger and Pooh) We've enjoyed the food at both, but 'Ohana is nice because the meal is served family style at your table so you don't have to stand in buffet lines.
