    When dining at Ohana do you share your meal and table with another family or just your own?

    At Ohana, you are only sitting with your own family, and only your family is sharing food.

    There are two WDW restaurants I can think of where, depending on the size of your party, you may be sitting with another family. These are Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion and Biergarten in the Germany pavilion, both at Epcot. At neither place are you actually sharing your food with the other family.

    At Teppan Edo, the tables, which seat about 8 people, are actually cooking surfaces. If you are a party of 1-4, then you will almost certainly be seated with someone else. Parties of 5-6 might have their own table if it is not busy. Parties of 7-8 will almost always have their own table. Groups of more than 8 or 9 will be split up. At this restaurant, everyone orders separately. Your food may be cooked with someone else's (as it would be in any kitchen), but your food is put onto your own plate and you are never eating out of a communal dish with anyone else. Bills are never combined.

    At the Biergarten, there is a range of table sizes, so most of the time your party will be seated alone. But there are some circumstances where two smaller parties will be put at one large table. This is a buffet setting where everyone serves themselves. Again, bills are never combined.
