Why I don't like it? Because it took forever for Stitch to come around...we were done eating and had to wait an additional 45 minutes for Stitch. And then what made the wait longer were people who didn't want to wait who would go and stand by the table where Stitch was so they could get their picture taken to leave. UGH!!!
Why can't they do like Tusker and have him out near the sign before you eat?

No, they are taking them DURING the meal!!! Which isn't bad..but there is no set pattern to Stitch he just goes from one area to another..... But then again it was only Day 5 of the new "test" experience, so if they keep it then maybe they can iron out the details.
I love Stitch and would love to have him in my picture, but waiting 2 1/2 hours for him was a bit much!!!!

Yeah, I was curious why you didn't like it. I assumed the photo was still taken out front, just that Stitch was there now. That would be a hassle to wait for him to come to your table for a photo.

A nice view wouldn't hurt either.
We are arriving the same day and leaving on the 12th.

Look at tikimans site for the building request. What some like, others don't. I prefer Tokelau and would hate to stay on the side close to the marina but that is me.

Hhhmmm...that's interesting. I wish they would do that at the beginning of the meal. Hopefully they get it all figured out and still have the Stitch Experience when I'm there!!! We were not going to eat breakfast at Ohana this year because it was not that great last year, although the prior 2 yrs it was good, but went ahead and booked breakfast there yesterday morning. Can't wait and hopefully it's better than last year!!!

Question on 'Ohana dinner - we got ADR for 9:10PM on 11/29 and Wishes is 10PM that day.

Is that too late for dinner? Can we got there early? Our flight arrives at 5:40pm and we are staying at BLT. So I am thinking that we will be ready to go for dinner by 7:30 to 8PM.

I have 2 kids DS5 and DS1 and they usually have dinner at home around 6pm. So worried about time.

Been thinking of switching to Chef Mickey which is at 8:25pm BUT we have never been to 'Ohana and I've read that it's. great way to start a WDW vacation

That's completely up to you if you think 9:10 pm is too late for dinner. Me personally, I would not want to eat dinner that late. If they have an opening for 7:30 pm at Ohana that would be better. Were you planning on watching Wishes from the Poly beach?
