‘Ohana | Disney’s Polynesian Resort, Disney World

We originally weren’t sure about this restaurant since it’s not character dining for dinner but it soon exceeded our expectations on all fronts.  With excellent service and a cheerful staff that’s also receptive to our child’s allergy needs, we felt at ease right away.

We entered when the events for the children began, where they got to sweep coconuts across the restaurant’s floor with brooms and dance to island music.  Soon after, the polynesian food came out.  We received huge helpings of side dishes first, which ties us over between skewers of meat brought around by our server.  Please note, this is a restaurant for meat lovers (my daughter included).  Vegetables are definitely lacking here.

The side dishes of pan-fried dumplings and chicken wings are both dairy and peanut free and very tasty! Kay feasted on this meal alone and really didn’t need to eat anything else.  She also had some skewered chicken and pork but preferred the crispiness of the dumplings to all other foods.

For dessert hers came out first, which made her feel really special.  It’s also her first ice cream sandwich!  This dairy-free, peanut-free and gluten-free dessert is made with Rice Dream vanilla ice cream and Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.  It’s as good as it looks, so she gobbled it up really quickly. It’s definitely a memorable night for us.
