If your kiddos are like mine, they LOVE experiencing character dining on our Walt Disney World vacations. I always recommend character breakfasts if you’re paying for your meal out of pocket vs. character dinners when using the Disney Dining Plan (to make sure you get the most bang for your buck!).
The character breakfast at Ohana is truly a family favorite of ours! Not only do you get to meet Mickey and Pluto, but you also dine with Lilo and Stitch! Plus the Polynesian is absolutely gorgeous and most definitely should be enjoyed and explored on your Walt Disney World vacation (yes, you CAN explore resorts even if you’re not staying there!!).
If you do explore the Polynesian, make sure you grab a treat at the Pineapple Lanai!
Dole Whips without even stepping foot in a park! Enough said!
Let’s take a look at the fun character breakfast at Ohana!
Ohana Character Dining with Lilo and Stitch at the Polynesian
One of the things I really enjoy about character breakfast at Ohana is that it is served family style vs. buffet style. I often visit Walt Disney World with my two kiddos solo, and not having to make a million trips to the buffet allows me to actually relax and enjoy my meal so much more than if I have to get everyone food and handle two little ones while doing so.
Just something to keep in mind if you have little ones! Family style will have less options but it’s much easier for parents!
Food at Ohana for breakfast is quite basic (but my kiddos LOVE basic breakfast foods so this is always a hit with them!).
Your waiter will bring a skillet to your table full of scrambled eggs, Mickey AND Stitch waffles, biscuits, ham, sausage, and potatoes.
You’ll also be served a platter of fruits and a deliciously sweet bread!
The food is pretty limited and not too adventurous, but it’s good and most definitely will please picky eaters.
Ohana also serves up the Walt Disney World breakfast favorite, POG juice — passion, orange and guava mixed!
Characters at Ohana Breakfast
One thing to note about eating at Ohana, the characters only join you during breakfast hours. Dinner at Ohana is delicious but there aren’t any characters present. Just FYI, I’ve seen lots of parents make the mistake of mentioning characters during dinner hours and ending up with disappointed kiddos.
You’ll meet four characters while dining at Ohana! Pluto will greet you either before or after your meal in the Ohana lobby.
Then as you’re eating, Mickey, Lilo and Stitch will make their way around to your table!
There also will be interactive elements while you eat! Kiddos can join a Congo line, shake maracas, and even play a fun broom & coconut game!
One thing to note about Ohana if you’d like great character photos it to ask to sit by a window. The restaurant decor is very dark and brown, so without window light, your photos will be very dark. You also could ask to sit by a window with a view of Cinderella Castle!
Ohana Breakfast Review
Breakfast at Ohana is $34 for adults and $20 for children. Infants under the age of 3 are considered Mickey’s Guest and eat for free!
Like I mentioned, you’re not eating at Ohana for fancy food. You’re just getting the basics here. But if you and your kiddos are happy with the basics (mine are!) then they’ll definitely enjoy the food here.
In my opinion, the true perk of eating breakfast at Ohana is meeting Lilo and Stitch. Mickey and Pluto are the bonus!
Another nice feature to Ohana is it’s location in the Polynesian. You can easily hop on the resort monorail over to Magic Kingdom after you eat! Or take a late morning break from the crowds to enjoy breakfast.
I highly recommend breakfast at Ohana if your kiddos are Lilo and Stitch fans!
If they’re not huge on Lilo and Stitch and instead would enjoy the classics like Mickey with Minnie and friends, or Disney Junior favorites like Vampirina, then you may want to book your breakfast elsewhere.
