'Ohana ADR for 5 better time than for just 2 people?

So I am booking an ADR at 'Ohana on Sat 1/26. When I searched for 2 people, dinner, the only option that came back was 9:20p.

On a whim I tried plugging in different party sizes and then I got better times... with a party of 6 I got 8:00p and party of 5, 8:40p - which is perfect, we can go to the Poly, watch Wishes @ 8 on the beach, then go check in for dinner.

I took the 8:40p for 5 and will call in a day or two and modify the ressie from 5 to 2.

So my question is -- why is this? Do they have less 2 person tables than 5 or 6 seaters? I find it very strange that it's harder to make an ADR for a couple than a larger group....

Not necessarily fewer 2 tops, but all the tables for 2 have been reserved. The system is set up to fill as many seats as possible so while a party of 2 will definitely fit at a table for 6, that leaves 4 empty seats. Instead the system will wait for someone with a party of 5 or 6.
