Wanna pig out on O’hana’s delicious Asian inspired food, but wanna do it in your jammies? Friends, allow me to introduce you to the Twilight Feast in-room dining experience at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Mark this in-room dining experience under the “deal of the century” category for anyone staying at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. O’hana, the Poly’s incredible family style table service restaurant, is one of the most popular dining experiences on Walt Disney World property and with good reason. The atmosphere is hard to beat, the views from the restaurant are stunning, the food is plentiful and delicious and the meal caps off with their signature dessert, bread pudding. The only thing hard to swallow about O’hana is, like most things at Walt Disney World, the price. At $54 per adult, it can be an expensive meal if you aren’t going to shovel in “all you care to enjoy”. While it’s not a buffet, it’s all you can eat of the foods they serve. (Of course if you are on the Disney Dining Plan, it’s only one table service credit and a good use of one at that.)
The Twilight Feast (pictured above), offered after 5pm and at $60 (per guest it states, but I will elaborate on that later) includes all the trimmings:
- a loaf of Pineapple Coconut bread and butter
- a large bowl Mixed Greens with Lilikoi Dressing
- Sticky Wings (2)
- Potstickers (4)
- Sweet and Sour Chicken
- Szechuan Sirloin Beef
- Spicy Grilled Peel and Eat Shrimp (4)
- Sautéed Vegetables
- Teriyaki Noodles
- peanut and sweet and sour sauces
- a carafe of Sunset Punch (Passion Orange Guava juice)
- Bread Pudding
SO. MUCH. FOOD. In fact TOO MUCH FOOD for one person.
I mentioned above that the menu states it’s $60 per guest, but they allow and encourage sharing. When I called to order “for one” they asked how many would be dining. We ordered one Twilight Feast for the two of us. They sent two utensil rolls, two glasses and because we don’t eat shrimp, they doubled up on the wings, chicken and beef. Substitutions are definitely allowed. We pigged out and still had enough food (and drink) for both of us to have a big lunch the next day (with a couple of pieces of chicken to spare). So for $60 (plus 18% gratuity) we got four delicious meals! We easily could have fed our family of three (two adults and a 16 year old healthy eater) and still had food left for one of us to fight over the next day.
Pictured below, (with the full size coffee pot for size reference) is the amount of food we had left over. Plus a half a bowl of salad, half a bread pudding and half a carafe of juice. We carb loaded on the bread since we were running the next morning. Yeah, that’s why we ate an entire loaf of bread. 😉
The ONLY thing you may want to consider is adding an extra order of bread pudding if you plan to share this meal with more than two people. I am not a fan of the bread pudding (I know, I know) so my husband enjoyed it with both dinner and lunch the next day. If our daughter had been with us, there wouldn’t have been a crumb left after dinner.
It’s important to note that we stayed in a DVC villa, so we not only had a larger fridge to store the leftovers, we had a microwave, plates and utensils. If you are dining in a regular room, you won’t have those at your disposal.
As DVC members with the Polynesian as our home resort, it was decided that the ordering in the Twilight Feast would be a tradition each time we visit, we enjoyed it (and the bang for our buck) THAT much!
