When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong
Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! – Jiminy Cricket
Q. Hello! We’re planning our first Disney trip in December, staying at Port Orleans French Quarter. We have an Advance Dining Reservation at ‘Ohana for breakfast (at 8:30am) and are planning on touring Epcot after that. The character breakfast looks so much fun, but, it does require a lot of extra travel that day.
What are the best options for getting to ‘Ohana and is the experience worth it given the extra hassle? (Submitted by Anonymous.)
A. Well, first of all, ‘Ohana is absolutely worth the trek for breakfast (Basically, it’s worth the trek for any meal, but I digress.)!
To start off, ‘Ohana’s Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch, also includes meets with Mickey and Pluto. The feast is served “Family-Style” which means the food is brought to your table. Menu items include scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, pork breakfast sausage links, smoked bacon, assorted breakfast breads, seasonal fruit, and of course, Mickey shaped waffles. It is a fantastic meal before heading to the parks.
How to best do it? There are a couple of ways.
Depending on your family and your reservation time, you could take Disney transportation to the Magic Kingdom and then take the Resort Monorail loop or the boat to the Polynesian Resort, where ’Ohana is located.
The other option would be to take a cab over to the Polynesian from your hotel. I would talk with a Cast Member out front about where cab pick up is located.
The choice is your call. If you use Disney transportation, you will have to get up earlier to account for transportation time, but it’s free. If you use the cab, there is a cost associated with that, but it will certainly get you there faster.
Overall, I know you will have an absolutely amazing meal at ‘Ohana and be sure to tell Lilo and Stitch I said hi!
