    Hi, We are staying at POR in November. We are a party of 8, looking for a dining recommendation for a fun dining experience at one of the hotels. We do have two children with food allergies. Thank you!

    Hello Trisha!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I think 'Ohana, located at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort would be a perfect place for you to eat during your vacation.  It is, by far, my family's favorite restaurant to eat at while we are at Walt Disney World.  'Ohana is an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal served right to your table.  Meat skewers (pork, chicken, steak and shrimp) all all cooked in the middle of the restaurant on a wood fire grill.  You also can enjoy bread, salad, chicken wings, pork dumplings, Asian style veggies and noodles along side of the meat. During the meal, there is dining room entertainment.  Hula dancing, coconut races and limbo are just some of the activities that take place here.  My favorite thing to do is to try to get a reservations 1 hour prior to the fireworks over Magic Kingdom.  While you are enjoying some of the best bananas foster bread pudding, the lights will dim and music from the show gets piped in.  I try to request a window table and it gives us a perfect view of the fireworks.  It is the most magical way to end a day at Walt Disney World and some of the best food you can eat.  The restaurant can easily seat a party of 8 and is appropriate for all age ranges.  I know that people with food allergies also enjoy eating here because the Chefs are very accommodating.  

    This really is my favorite place and somewhere I recommend to all of my friends.  It sounds like it might be perfect for you and your family.  I hope this helps.  If you have any other questions, please do come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
