We are staying on site and hopefully that will help when making reservations for CRT breakfast and BOG dinner

If we can't get these we will have to change our plans.
Any place that brings you meat on a stick is great in my books.

I agree with sephorachick. Ohana is not a place to go to if you want good quality food. Terribly disappointing meal IMO. Just awful. Never again. Theyre mpre concerned about quantity than quality. id pick WCC over ohana any day!! I learned that you cant expect much from AYCE and buffets. Breakfast is the only exception.

I must have been there on a good night then because I found the quality of food to be very good. They even took the time to make sure my wife was accommodated because she will not eat meat with any pink in it. Now that I really think about it my last trip to Ohana was not as good as years past, but still good.

Just goes to show things can be hit or miss.

wow, lucky you. Im not much of a gambler, so i wont be going back to see if I have the same experience as yours. I figure, there are so many better places to eat within WDW. Why waste my time going back to a meal which i found to be bleh? kwim?

Ya for sure. We tend to make our reservations the same each year, 75% restaurants we know and love, 25% new places we have yet to experience. There is just so much to experience food wise that the places that miss the mark don't get a 2nd chance for us. Once we have experienced everything maybe we will give them another chance, but thats a few years out.

Looks good. I really dislike Mama Melrose. The food wasn't good and the service was Terrible. Food wise I'd say it's is slightly worse than Olive Garden. Could have just been an off night but this was our worst meal by far our last trip.

Being that you are going to Via Napoli I'd bag Mama Melrose. Via Napoli was great. Were going back this August and Trying all different restaurants except via Napoli. Can't wait to go back.

Like other posters you need a backup for BOG. I had difficulty getting a reservation for 2 and I called at 182 days out. It took me a few days of checking to get one. For 10 I'd def call at 180 + 10.

Just a little light for you possibility of getting BOG, I was online at 5:58am and kept refreshing to get my reservation for 8 at BOG. Had three good choices and made the reservation. That was at 180 days, as I haven't yet made our resort reservations. I think the people trying for 180+10 should try again on the day that they hit 180, wondering if they retain some of the reservations for that day. On another note just playing around with reservations yesterday for our trip next week and saw a reservation for our party of 4 at Ohana at 7:50pm next Sunday. Considered it, but liked the time of our Kona and heard of the possibility of getting the bread pudding there, so are leaving it as is.
