'Ohana Review


‘Ohana means family. So when you get to take your first trip as grown-ups with your brother and his family, you have to dine at the place where family is the focus.

Dining at ‘Ohana* changes you. With the food and warmth of the people and the welcoming surroundings of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, it is hard not to fall in love with all it has to offer.
And then you have the food.

When you are brought in by your cousin, you pass the warmth of the Pineapple-Coconut Bread. You immediately start to feel your soul filling, and you haven’t even eaten anything yet!

Once seated, the mixed greens salad is served to you family style! Don’t worry if you finish it...there is more where that came from!

Following the salad is my personal favorite, the pork dumplings. I dream of the pork dumplings and honey coriander chicken wings...but mostly...of the dumplings! The teriyaki noodles and fried vegetables are packed with flavor and another family favorite!!! Again, don’t worry if you run out! Just ask your cousin and they will bring you more of everything you love!
As you are eating the dumplings, and noodles, and dumplings, and vegetables, and dumplings...long skewers of savory beef, chicken and shrimp are brought around to each table. The sweet-n-sour chicken, Szechuan Steak, and Spicy shrimp are out of this world delicious! And don’t worry if you don’t eat one of the offerings! You can pick and choose which you want, and again, you can always ask for more!

To accompany this fabulous family feast, one should consider celebrating with a specialty cocktail. Festive drinks from the Tambu Lounge are offered at ‘Ohana. And of course, you can't forget the wonderful dessert to round out this amazing family meal! Yum!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
