    Hi Moms! Trying to plan our day around MVMCP on Sunday, 12/6, want to go to Ohana for dinner before party but wondering if this would be a good idea and if Ohana opens for dinner early enough to still be back at MK before 7 for the party? You're awesome!

    Hi Janice!

    How exciting to be planning a Walt Disney World vacation for December! 'Ohana just happens to be my family's favorite place to dine when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I personally think an all-you-care-to-enjoy dinner at the amazing 'Ohana prior to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party sounds like a magical evening. I am happy to report that I have dined at this popular dining location many times between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Guests may begin booking Advanced Dining Reservations for Table-Service restaurants 180 days in advance, which I highly recommend for this particular dining location due to its popularity. By booking well in advance, this will hopefully ensure that you can find availability for an early Advanced Dining Reservation. I definitely think you should have ample time to enjoy an early dinner at 'Ohana before Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party officially begins at 7:00 p.m. 

    I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical and merry trip, Janice!

    Bon Appétit,
