    We've booked a last-minute trip to WDW 12/13-18 (w/DS12, DS9) and can't get dinner reservations at 'Ohana. Is the lunch as much fun as the dinner? Is there another fun dining option near the Lagoon? We want to catch the Electrical Water Pageant one night.


    I'm sorry you couldn't get a reservation at the ever-popular Ohana's!  It took our family the past three vacations to land another meal reservation there!  Unfortunately, the restaurant only serves breakfast and dinner....

    But I have a fun alternative: check out Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge.  The waiters dish out fun by the forkful and the food, while a little less exotic than Ohana's, is a kid-pleaser, too.  Instead of coconut races, the boys can wrangle up a stick pony and get in on the antics!  Best of all, the Electrical Water Pageant makes it way around to its pier on the lagoon around 9:30 p.m.  So, I'd recommend a dinner reservation around 7:30 to give you ample time to explore the lodge, with its storied lobby and stone fireplace! 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
