REVIEW: ‘Ohana Reopens for Breakfast with Standard Fare at Good Price in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has finally reopened. We’re saving space for ‘Ohana’s famous noodles at dinner but couldn’t resist enjoying their all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast first.

Arrival

Maskless Cast Members greeted us at the check-in counter.

The rest of the Cast Members were cheering for every guest who entered this morning.

We caught glimpses of ‘Ohana preparing to reopen a few weeks ago, including some of the carpet being replaced.

‘Ohana breakfast usually has characters like Lilo and Stitch walking around, but this experience is suspended for the time being.

Menu

Breakfast is $25 per adult and $14 per child. The table gets seasonal fruit, freshly-made pineapple-coconut breakfast bread, and the ‘Ohana breakfast skillet. A plant-based version of the breakfast is available, with a cinnamon-sugar doughnut and replacements in the skillet.

Of course, we started with drinks. There are alcoholic and non-alcoholic specialties.

Wasabi Bloody Mary – $13

Absolut Peppar Vodka with our House-made Wasabi Bloody Mary Mix

ohana-review-3-2

Woo, you can taste the wasabi in this one. It does not taste like the Bloody Mary mix we’ve had at other resorts, which is thicker and has tomato pulp. This is thinner and there is no pulp, but it’s still got a good flavor. The wasabi is very prevalent, so if you don’t like wasabi or a lot of heat this early in the morning, it’s probably not for you.

Polynesian Red Eye – $10

Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Passion-Orange-Guava Juices, and Grenadine

ohana-review-5-2

The serving is relatively small for the fact that this is the POG juice you get free with breakfast, plus some rum and grenadine. But the coconut from the rum really does bring something extra to the juice.

Warped Hula Hoop – $11

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Pineapple, and Passion-Orange-Guava Juices topped with Melon Liqueur

ohana-review-4-2

There are a lot of flavors going on here. It has all the flavors of POG juice, plus Midori and pineapple. The rum adds a nice spiced kick. It’s a great breakfast drink.

Lilo Smoothie – $6.49

Decadent blend of Vanilla Smoothie, Fresh Strawberries and Chocolate Syrup served with Whipped Cream and an Edible Orchid

ohana-smoothies-3

This smoothie is going to be a hit with kids, but it feels less special than the others in the presentation. It’s just a basic chocolate smoothie.

Moana Smoothie – $6.49

Vanilla Smoothie with flavors of Watermelon, Mango, Guava, and Ginger topped with Whipped Cream, Edible Flowers, and a Moana Chocolate Disc

ohana-smoothies-2

The Moana smoothie tastes like artificial strawberry (like strawberry NesQuick) mixed with a hint of tropical fruit flavor on the back end.

Stitch Smoothie – $6.49

Sweet Flavors of Coconut and Pineapple combined in a Vanilla Smoothie topped with Whipped Cream and Stitch Ears

ohana-smoothies-0

This one is basically a tropical frozen coconut cocktail without the alcohol.

Freshly made Pineapple-Coconut Breakfast Bread

ohana-review-1

The famous breakfast bread is served with butter on the side. It’s a flaky pastry, with dough like a danish. It’s fluffy and chewy in the center, but crispy and flaky on top.

ohana-review-3

It’s lightly drizzled with icing, plus pineapple and coconut flavors. It’s an ‘Ohana classic that hasn’t changed much. It was a little dry but still sweet, flavorful, and delicious.

Seasonal Fruit

ohana-review-4

There’s nothing unique about the fruit, but it’s fresh and plentiful and a perfect complement to this Polynesian breakfast.

‘Ohana Breakfast Skillet

Scrambled Eggs, Pork Breakfast Sausage Links, Hawaiian-style Ham topped with Pineapple Compote, Fried Island-style Potatoes, Mickey-shaped Waffles, Biscuits

ohana-review-11

Mickey waffles are a classic, but they always seem to be better cooked here than at other places on property.

ohana-review-13

They have a nice crisp outside and are fluffy and moist on the inside. Both Mickey and Stitch didn’t disappoint.

ohana-review-6

The potatoes are good and taste fresh instead of frozen. A couple of wedges were a smidge undercooked, but they were all well-seasoned.

ohana-review-8

The sausage is typical of any other Walt Disney World breakfast. They were cooked well, had a good flavor, and weren’t overly salty.

ohana-review-9

The ham comes topped with a pineapple compote. It’s a typical sliced boneless ham, but a little dry. It’s not anything special, like fresh roasted or hand-carved. But the compote is delicious and adds a nice sweetness that compliments the salty ham.

ohana-review-7

As is typical with family-style breakfasts, the scrambled eggs aren’t gonna be as well-cooked as other breakfasts. They were a little dry, for a crumbly consistency, but were fine.

ohana-review-0-2

You can custom order eggs cooked in other ways. We got two eggs over easy and they were cooked perfectly.

ohana-review-10

The biscuits are fantastic. They were perfectly cooked, as well as buttery and light. These are the biscuits you expect at ‘Ohana breakfast.

Overall

ohana-review-6-2

Breakfast was good and all the typical foods you’d expect at ‘Ohana, but without the characters, it felt a little underwhelming. It was wonderful to be back in the space, and Cast Members and guests were overjoyed. But this isn’t the best breakfast we’ve had at Walt Disney World. There aren’t any items that stand out and nothing that we were eager to have more of.

  1. That’s a great price. Now lets hope they keep it and allow more families to enjoy.

  2. Such GREAT NEWS! Thank-you for sharing what looks to have been a delicious breakfast! Don’t forget to call me when you get dinner!!!!

  3. How long did this meal take you? Was it quick with family style and no characters?

  4. It was the potatoes and POG juice that kept me coming back, not Lilo and Stitch so I am so looking forward to my daughters breakfast here next month! I didn’t realize you could order eggs cooked differently than scrambled – is that an upcharge? I would definitely prefer over easy to scrambled …… thanks for the review!
