Talk to me about the differences between Kona and Ohana for dinner... We currently have reservations at both during our stay but since the food options seem similar, I'm wondering if we should try a different style at another resort/park.

The food is completely different. Ohana is family style which has sides that go in the center of the table, noodles, salad and such with grilled meats served from skewers. Kona has all kinds of different foods, steaks, burgers, fish etc.... I have a reservation for both on an upcoming trip because they are so different.

I second karriealex's opinion. The experience for both restaurants is completely different. Kona is one of our favourite WDW restaurants, and we love 'Ohana too!

I have had lunch at Kona and had to kinda be careful of price. In December we are doing the dining plan so I can order whatever I want. I am SO looking forward to it. We do Ohana on every trip. I was told it had changed to a plated meal and was very sad but then found out that it was basically still the same as it always was right before our last trip. I was so happy and so relieved. We love Ohana and I am sure Kona will also become a must do on every trip too.

How is everything now? Are they still covered and did you find out any more information?

We were there just 2 weeks ago and my son specifically asked about dole whip refills. He had to pay full price for a refill. So at least from the cashier he talked to, he had to pay.

It's not free refill for the dole whip but it IS a self serve where YOU determine when to stop.. in before a tower of dole whip!! lol, you can basically get two cups worth for the price of one if you pour it correctly..

That is why it is better to get it at the Poly than in the park. At the Poly it is self serve. In the park they determine the size.

That is right. Dole Whips do not have free refills but people walk up and fill it more anyway. That is why on busy days they sometimes have someone at the dispencer doing it for you and soon if people abuse the self serve they will always have someone filling it for you.

I would never refill but I have over filled a bit. But I guess even that is abusing the system so I won't do that anymore either. I don't want to see them take the self serve away.

Steve, Do you know what is happening with the computer ordering system at Capt. Cooks? We have been getting reports that they are covered and you have to order through a CM.
