O'Hana is a family-style restaurant located in Disney's Polynesian Resort (Is it officially called Polynesian Village Resort with the new sign?) and it's very popular. So popular, that our first trip together in 2011 was O'Hana-free because I couldn't get a reservation on the morning that reservations became available. I vaguely remember going when I was younger with my family and enjoying it, but my memory didn't provide anything further than that.
I always research travel destinations to the bone and pick restaurants ahead of time. This is a requirement for most Disney table service restaurants because you'll need reservations, and you start making your reservations 60 days ahead of your arrival date. O'Hana always has marks of the highest honors on most review websites and blogs. So it was one of the main ones on my to-do list and we were really bummed we couldn't get a reservation in 2011. However, when we went in 2013 I was able to snag it and we were both pretty excited about it. (Sometimes, we're known to be just as excited about the restaurants we try as the actual destination. It's part of the experience for us.)
Have you ever had a bad experience and tried a place again? How did it turn out?
