Ohana or Garden Grill?

Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, my DS (4) and I will be alone the first few days we are in Disney. We have a reservation currently for our whole group at Ohana one night, but I just saw a Garden Grill open for the same night. I'm debating which will be more fun for a 4 year old, Ohana or GG? We've eaten at both before and I just can't decide. I'm thinking I would prefer the food at Ohana, and DS would prefer the character interaction at GG.

You've been to both? You enjoy the food more at Ohana? then keep Ohana. Im sure you DS4 will love the coconut races etc. However, if you really want a character meal then i'd go with GG. It all depends on what youre looking for. Food or characters.

Im not fond of the food at Ohana, so naturally i'd go with GG.

I haven't been to Ohana, so I can't comment on that one.

But DS4 REALLY enjoyed Garden Grill when we were there a couple of weeks ago. He liked the characters, but he was SUPER excited about the "spinning" restaurant and seeing the scenery from Living with the Land. The adults in our party loved the food--it was one of our trip favorites, in fact.

Definitely your personal preference. We really enjoy both. GG is more homestyle food (turkey, beef, salad, rolls, cobbler), but the characters are excellent and it is not as hecktic as say other character meals. Plus, it is really neat seeing the Land from up above. The games would be great for your little one at Ohana's and the food is really good, but I think she'd enjoy Garden Grill more

If you are basing your decision upon food, I have to say GG--HANDS DOWN.

I would think a 4 year old would enjoy GG more.

One more vote for GG. To me a character night on your first day gets you in the spirit!

It looks like we may be able to get Ohana one night when everyone is there, so I'm leaning more towards GG. The main hesitation at this point is that it's a weekend night during the F&W, but I'm thinking The Land might be far enough away to not worry about it!

I love GG. I would pick that over Ohana any day. I think your DD would enjoy the characters too.
