    I want to make ADR's for Ohana's on one night of our trip. What would be the best time if I thought I wanted to watch the fireworks afterward on the beach. I thought this would be fun for our 2 young sons (2 and 3.5). I love the mom's panel.

    Hi Jess!

    (I can call you Jess right?)  I love your plan.  The beach at the Polynesian is a fabulous, less crowded and super fun place to check out Wishes!  Plus, your boys will love playing in the sand while they watch!  Ohana is a fantastic place to have a fun-filled family dinner.  There's a great Polynesian singer who gets the audience very involved.  The kids get up and play games, including my boys' all time favorite, which involves "sweeping" coconuts around the restaurant with a broom.  The food is amazing (your buttons will be screaming for mercy) and is served family style.  If your kiddos are picky (like mine), they'll be happy to bring out some chicken nuggets.  To get the whole "Ohana experience" I would allow about 90 minutes to eat.  You'll have time to spare, but better safe than late!

    Check the calendar for Wishes on the night you are interested in by clicking HERE, and make your reservation for about an hour and forty-five minutes before the show so you have time to get down to the beach after eating.

    Have a great night!
