My DS is a very finicky eater, even as a teenager, and the POG juice and seasoned potatoes are two of his favourite parts of the meal. goofyintoronto has nailed it on the juice...it really is that good!!

And of course, there's always the Mickey waffles:

Maybe I'm in the minority, but we did not care for Ohana breakfast. Yes it's all you can eat but the selection is very limited - Mickey waffles, bread, eggs, sausage and bacon. And we did not care for the bread and sausage. And for two of us, it was $50 Additionally, our service was slow and so were the characters. I guess we prefer breakfast buffets where there is more of a selection, or places where you can order off the menu so its not quite as expensive.

For the Ohana breakfast, are the Mickey waffles always served nice and hot? I am not a fan of cold waffles I ask this because it looks like they are served in a bread basket. As for the bread, what type of bread is it again? Is the bread served warm too?

Kids that age I would do the breakfast. I know people have mentioned they won't eat much, but I have 6 kids and it wouldn't matter which one, they just don't eat much no matter where we are.. this is about the experience and not the food. If you're looking for amazing food to justify the prices, leave Disney property. If you're looking for ok good with a good experience and make some memories dine at Disney.

If your kids were 10-12 and over I'd go for the O'hana dinner.

We have done both a few times and I would definitely pick breakfast. Love those Mickey waffles, the juice, and the pineapple bread. It really is good and the characters are a lot of fun, especially stitch! We also appreciate that it is family style because we hate buffets. We have enjoyed it each and every time. Dinner tho, is iffy with the food. It's decent but it's a lot...A LOT of meat. We did dinner on our last trip last august and it was just ok. The Lapu Lapu (drink in the pineapple) was great tho, maybe hit the Poly for one, one evening.

We've never done dinner, but we have always had a great breakfast there. In fact, its one of our favorite character meals. I think the kids would really like it!

We've done both, and the answer is hands down breakfast for us. The dinner was not worth it to me. We were disappointed with the food after all the hoopla. I almost decided not to try breakfast there, but I am SO glad we did! I love the breakfast potatoes they serve and everything else was delicious as well! My dh actually chose this as his birthday breakfast for our upcoming trip!

We just checked out and had Ohana for breakfast, amongst several other character breakfasts and we were quite disappointed. The Polynesian is beautiful and I'm glad we got to see it but it won't be on my list for a return breakfast. My husband and I are big breakfast eaters but were surprised at the limited selection. Not worth it IMO. Didn't compare to all the other amazing buffets around.

I prefer breakfast. Dinner was terrible from the food to the entertainment (which was on the tacky side). Breakfast however has yummy food and really friendly characters! Love Stitch especially!

My dinner there was great. Food was delicious and server was attentive.! Can't speak to breakfast there, but IMO disney overcharges for breakfast. It amazes me how many ppl spend so much on eggs and waffles...so inexpensive to make.
