Ohana means family – Disney World

~~Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten~~

April 12, 2017 ‘Ohana restaurant opened in the Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World. Food is served family style, Disney friends stop by the tables at specified times of the day, and entertainment includes singing, ukulele playing, limbo contests and races where children push coconuts around the restaurant.

In the mid-1950’s, Walt Disney developed an interest in the Polynesia culture. He patronized Polynesian supper clubs and tiki bars. He loved the food and atmosphere so much that he wanted to open up his own Polynesian/Tiki restaurant. But Disney wanted to make the Tikis, birds and flowers move and talk. This was not only the birth of the idea for the Polynesian resort but Audio Animatronics, which is at the heart and soul of all the Disney parks.

Disney’s ‘Ohana Restaurant is located within the Polynesian Resort.

‘Ohana – ‘Ohana is a large family-style restaurant located on the second floor of the Great Ceremonial House, which serves breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, the location operates as ‘Ohana’s Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch, a meal service with Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Lilo and Stitch visiting tables while food is served family-style in calabash platters. During dinner, the location serves its ‘Ohana Feast, a family-style meal featuring several varieties of grilled skewered meats cooked on an oak-burning fire pit along with family-friendly live entertainment. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a front row seat to the Wishes fireworks show while enjoying this Hawaiian feast.
