Breakfasts around Walt Disney World Resort usually combine great value and great quality, so bringing their morning dining philosophy into one of Disney's best restaurants, Ohana, has historically been a recipe for success.
And that has held as Ohana breakfast has made its return.
The excellent, indulgent buffet-at-your-table style dinner is what has made Ohana so well known, so it was only natural that its breakfast followed suit. An endless portion size and the ability to request more of your favorite items combined with a leisurely pace so we always felt fed and never felt rushed. Service was as attentive as Disney has ever had, where not a drink ran dry, a plate ran empty or an allergy unnoticed. When dishes are served family- style, it was especially welcome to have our server bring a separate selection of food for the guest in our party with dietary restrictions. Whether it be dairy-free, gluten-free or anything in between, we were reassured there were options no matter the restriction.
Mastering the Basics
There are no characters currently at Ohana, making the food an even more intense focus on the experience than ever. And it was largely a success. Headed by some of Walt Disney World Resort's best Mickey waffles, the breakfast doesn't stray far from the basics: scrambled eggs, pork breakfast sausage links, Hawaiian-style ham topped with pineapple compote, fried island-style potatoes and biscuits. If you're looking for a more creative menu with complex flavors and specialty dishes, Ohana might not be the best choice; however, it nails what it does perfectly. The tender pineapple-glazed ham and crispy potatoes were the standout here, but everything was cooked perfectly.
At $25 per adult and $14 per child, the value here is unbeatable. It matches the trend of fairly priced deals at Disney breakfasts, and it does everything it does well. It's the perfect meal either before a day in the parks or an off-day, with portions easily controllable without having to take home leftovers or wasting food.
If you're looking for a party-pleaser at a good price with a variety of choices, this is the place to dine.
