  • Restaurant suggestion?

    My family is going to WDW in August which is over my 30th b-day and my husband and my anniversary. We are looking for a restaurant that would be fun to go to with our two little ones (1 and 6). Any suggestions? What about Ohana?

    Ohana's has already been discussed in another thread, and as you can see from that, it draws rave reviews! It will be fun for the little ones, and the food is great for adults.

    If not your cup of tea, you can always try a character meal, or the Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge is another great restaurant for the kids, but a lot more hectic than Ohana's.

      'ohana and the Whispering Canyon Cafe are both pretty good choices. They are family-style so the food comes quickly and both have entertainment geared towards kids. I've linked my reviews here:

      I would say I prefer the food at 'ohana. Another good choice maybe Boma which is African but very very good, its buffet, and you can check out the savannah before and after you're meal. I would recommend the San Angel Inn at Epcot. After you order an adult may be able to jump on the nearby boat ride before the food comes. At MGM, there is the Sci-Fi which has average food but is fun to eat at.

      Of course, there is always a character meal.

        You can get sauerkraut in the German pavillion for $0.50 as a side. They give you a plateful, its good, its the cheapest thing in WDW, and it cleans out the old system.

        haha

        Whispering Canyon Cafe = MUST DO

        it made my trip to WDW. Histerical!

          Get a babysitter and go to the California Grill.

            Why get a babysitter when you have a perfectly good 6 year old there to do the sitting... what? Oh yeah sure, like my parents were the only ones.... I need a hug.

              Ohana is highly over-rated. BTW, it's not Ohana's, it's just Ohana. Drives me crazy when people do that.

              If you want some amazing fine dining, try the California Grill, Artist Point, or Jiko. All are excellent fine dining locations.

              But with two little ones, they'll want to do a Character Dining Experience.

              If your kids are picky, stay away from Ohana. They burn all the food there on open flames.

                I do not think Ohana is overrated, nor does anyone else here.

                    Fine. I'm wrong, as usual. This is why I never voice my opinion.

                      I was one of the west-coasters there last year and I LOVED 'Ohana.

                      Most loved the food, the service did leave ALOT to be desired, but with a 50 person party ... well ...

                        See you were right.

                        I like 'ohana (thats the way its spelled I believe) and I'm usually anti-"family style".

                          Oh, I never said the food was bad. But I've never, not even once, had good service at Ohana. That's why people don't like the place. I know Al wasn't too fond of the place either. And don't worry about yoyo, he's fine, and he's right about most things. It was my opinion in the first place, and he decided it would be a good idea to claim that I am alone, blah blah blah.

                            Whatever. I'm doing voicing opinions here. Still feels like I'm being more explained away and I am wrong. I don't need to be made feel worse than I already do right now.

                              I have never eaten at 'Ohana but I can say this for WDW dining in general. It is not "super". I think that anybody who goes in thinking they are going to get a world class meal with world class service is in for a suprise. Aside from V&A, nothing there has blown me away so to speak. It's like going to a chain, somtimes you get good service, sometimes not. V&A is the only place I went to that I EXPECTED and DEMANDED to get service - and they did not disappoint.

                              'ohana is a churriscaria, and being as such, I would almost expect poor service. The whole churriscaria concept has service problems, I must have eaten in more than half a dozen of them in my life, a numerous times in each, and have allways had sub-par serivce. I don't know why, but its something I have come to expect. Maybe the mazzive amounts of sangria makes it acceptable.
