    Captain Jacks Or Ohana's

    My husband and I are having a difference of opinion. He want's to eat at Captain Jacks, and I want to go to Ohana. We don't have more than 1 night for dining out at a different resort, because we don't want to waste park time. Which would you all say is better? Thanks!!

    Ohana's hands down!!! I do not think he will be disappointed after eating there. The food and atmosphere is delicious! Some advice would be to get a late ADR and ask for a table by a window so you can watch Wishes from there. It is really nice to do that! Ohana's and Crystal Palace are must do's for each and everyone of our trips! Whether we go once or twice a year we ALWAYS include these two stops!

    I haven't eaten at Captain Jack's. It gets many mixed reviews leaning towards the not positive.

    I have done 'Ohana several times and have enjoyed it every time. Here is a review of my most recent visit: 'Ohana Review

    Captain Jack's was ok, but nothing special. It's not Disney, even though it is at Downtown Disney. 'Ohana is fabulous - great food, great fun, and the Polynesian is worth visiting.

    'Ohana! Just make sure you get an Advance Reservation, it is an extremely popular restaurant (with good reason). You don't need reservations at Captain Jack's, but in my opinion, Long John Silver's has better seafood!

    OHANA'S! We eat here 2x during our trip every year. I just love this place but that is my own opinion. I love the rice and the shrimp is awesome, I love the atmoshere. And if you plan it right you can be there and see Wishes in the sky. Or even the water parade
    DISNEY IS MY HAPPY PLACE THE ONLY TIME THAT I GET 2WKS OF HAPPINESS AND WORRY FREE TIME!!!!!! This time I will see it through the eyes of my baby girl born 2008.

    Next Trip is December 2010

    Can't wait!!!!!!
