    I got a reservation for Ohana's at 5:05pm and at 7:00pm on another night. I wanted to cancel one. Which time is better? I am traveling with a 4 year old and an 8 month old baby. Thanks

    Hi Alexsandra! You're so lucky to have scored not just one, but two, reservations to one of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World! 'Ohana is often more difficult for me to get in than Chef Mickey's or Cinderella's Royal Table, and I sometimes can't get a table there at all, so you are going to make someone very happy when you cancel your second reservation. 

    As to which reservation to keep, I recommend you do what's best for your family. Since your children are so young, the earlier time may work better for you. Because 'Ohana is so popular, it's likely you'll have to wait a bit before your table is ready, even with a reservation. Based on my experiences at 'Ohana, with the 7 p.m. reservation, you may not be seated until 7:30 or later, and if your little ones are used to early bedtimes, they may be overly hungry and cranky if you wait that late to eat. For this reason, you may want to keep the 5:05 reservation. Now, on the other hand, if your children are night owls and you expect you'll be spending all afternoon in the parks and don't want to leave to get to an early dinner, keep the later reservation. If the Magic Kingdom fireworks are scheduled for 9 p.m. that night, it's possible that you could view them from the restaurant, which would be a nice treat as you're winding up your meal.

    Whichever time you choose, you'll be treated to lots of grilled meats and delicious sides and fun activities for the kids, such as limbo dancing or coconut races!
