Ohana Means Family...



...family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten. This quote means so much more to me than it does to the normal person. Besides the fact that I worked in Disney World and made some of the best friends who turned into family, it's also the name of one of the restaurants at Disney that we all kind of started a familial relationship. 

Ohana is a restaurant in Disney's Polynesian hotel, with all you can eat food presented family style again. Our first stop on the way to getting a seat? The bar. You see, we had made reservations for after work, but somehow we mixed up the dates and we showed up whenever we didn't have a reservation. So instead of telling us tough luck, they fit us in as the last table to be seated, and the last one to be served that night. That was totally fine with us because we were able to get to the bar and hang out for a little bit before dinner began. 

At the bar in the Polynesian there is this drink that you can order - I can't remember the name of it honestly at this point, but it comes in a pineapple.  If you are over the age of 21, I strongly suggest that you get this pineapple drink because boy it is so worth it. After we got our drinks, we were called to our table. You're seated around a round table so it's as if you really are at family dinner. It was so nice because we were all friendly at this point, but this was really the turning point for everyone. We all began to open up to each other and share what was going on in our lives/in our heads. 

The food, as usual, was exceptional (as was the service and the atmosphere). There was bread and salad (like usual), then came the chicken wings, and dumplings, noodles, and grilled vegetables, grilled chicken, grilled pork, grilled steak, and grilled shrimp, and last but not least there was bread pudding. Needless to say, we poor college program kids ate more than our fare share and had issues walking to the car.
