Breakfast at ‘Ohana has always been a must for us since our first trip on our honeymoon. Since then, the characters have changed a little with the addition of Lilo and Stitch taking the place of Goofy, Chip, and Dale, but the food has remained tasty and bountiful. Other characters include Mickey Mouse himself and Pluto.
'Ohana Restaurant inside the Polynesian Resort
When you arrive at the restaurant, you check in at the podium and then are shuffled over to have your picture taken. During your meal a CM will come by your table and share your photograph along with package options that you can purchase. You are not obligated to have your photo made or purchase them if you do. Also, don’t be afraid to ask the photographer to take one with your personal camera.
Once your breakfast time arrives you are introduced to one of your many cousins (you are in ‘Ohana of course, and ‘Ohana means family!). Your cousin will usher you to your table, along the way picking up a basket of the assorted bread which includes the fantastic pineapple bread as well as a very tasty sticky bun.
Once seated another cousin comes and introduces themselves as your waiter/waitress for the morning. All food is served family style here at ‘Ohana, beginning with the fruit platter which includes grapes, watermelon, pineapple, and melon.
To accompany your food, your meal includes coffee and juice. The juice is “Lilo and Stitch’s Secret Recipe” but I asked the CM just what was in it. It is so refreshing and I think I drink a whole carafe full of it during each visit. While I’m not sure of the portions, the juice is a mixture of Minute Maid Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava Juices. Unfortunately, it seems that it can be very hard to find everything but the orange juice. However, I did find this on Minute Maid’s website and may be trying to track it down for testing!

The main breakfast platter includes biscuits, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and breakfast potatoes. Feel free to request seconds, or thirds, of any item on the platter.
But wait! There’s more! In the past, Mickey Waffles were served on the platter, but now a CM will come by your table and serve them to you out of a basket. Don’t worry, there’s plenty opportunity to get more Mickey Waffles!
By the end of breakfast, you’re stuffed and ready for whatever park the day throws at you! My suggestion is to eat at ‘Ohana on a Magic Kingdom morning. This way you take Disney Transportation (or a cab) to the Polynesian Resort for breakfast and then you can hop on the monorail for a ride over to the Magic Kingdom when you are finished.
Breakfast is served daily from 7:30am – 11am. Adult’s breakfast is $24.99, child’s breakfast is $13.99.
