Dining Spotlight: 'Ohana
Do you have a best friend? Invite them along because Lilo & Stitch are inviting you to their Best Friends Breakfast at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort where you will be welcomed by an amazing Ohana! Oh yes, while visiting Disney World, we are all family! This family-friendly style feast allows you to hang ten with Lilo & Stitch and retrieve some autographs for your signature books. Made fresh and hot, your prepared menu consists of sausage links, Hawaiian style ham, scrambled eggs, pineapple-coconut breakfast bread, Mickey waffles, island style potatoes and seasonal fruit. All I can say is YUM!
My family and I reserved a morning here and had a beautiful view of the resort from our table that had a window framing the view perfectly. It was an excellent way to relax while we watched palm trees sway and kids play in the pool or beach areas. We were greeted promptly by our server just in time for our Disney character friends to begin making their way from one table to another. This offers the opportunity for individuals to get photos with them and give them a big Aloha hug! Half way during our meal, Mickey and friends invited everyone to join them in Hawaiian dance activity that made its way throughout the restaurant. Shaking tails and maracas, all the children and even adults joined in a conga line while Hawaiian music played for everyone to hear. It was adorable!
Just past the Ohana podium, you can find Tambu Lounge where you can indulge in a tropical concoction like the Lapu Lapu, served in a pineapple, all while waiting to be seated. This South Sea Vibe surrounds you with a tropical setting of lush plants and exquisite tiki gods. You can also enjoy a delicate dinner here but remember, characters only come out to play during breakfast!
We absolutely adored this breakfast and would totally do it again. I highly recommend to those who enjoy the Hawaiian theme and love Lilo & Stitch. After breakfast, take a walk around outside and check out the tropical beach atmosphere. You will not be disappointed!
