    I made ADR at Ohana for my boyfriend and myself. Since this restaurant is "family style", do we get seated with other people or do they seat us by ourselves? Also, will we be able to see the fireworks from the dining room with an 8:15 seating

    Hi Tiffany,

    I love 'Ohana. The bread pudding at the end is one of my all-time favorite desserts!

    There are a few restaurants at Walt Disney World where you might be seated with other guests (Biergarten, Via Napoli), but Ohana is not one of them. There are many tables for two at the restaurant. A reservation for two guests will almost certainly be seated at a two-top.

    When you sit down, you'll be given two plates. The salad will be brought in a bowl that's placed in the center of your table and you serve yourselves from the bowl onto your plates. That's the family-style aspect of it. Since there are just two of you eating, your bowl will just be smaller than, say, a family of 10 would get. Dessert works in a similar fashion.

    For the main course, your server will come to the table with large skewers of grilled meat and you tell him how much you want of each type. It's all you care to eat, so they'll keep coming as long as you want them to.

    The fireworks time varies considerably during the year, so I can't tell you about whether you'll see the Wishes fireworks from the restaurant since I don't know your travel dates. There are large windows in the restaurant so if the timing is right, it is possible to see Wishes from dinner at Ohana.

    Please write back with your travel dates and I'll let you know the timing of Wishes.
