As many of you already know, ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Resort is reopening to Guests next month, however, dinner will not include the iconic yakisoba noodles.

Once the announcement was made, it was only a matter of seconds before the missing noodles were noticed. In fact, shortly after the reports came in that ‘Ohana was reopening, it began trending on Twitter as fans were not holding back their thoughts, disappointment, and anger that the noodles would not be part of dinner.

Now, fans are taking it one step further as a petition has surfaced on Change.org, begging Disney to bring back the noodles.

The petition reads in full:

On June 8th Disney fans received great news. ‘Ohana at Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort is opening back up on July 9th. This is fantastic news, especially for the cast members that get to return to their job and for the many guests who love their food. If you are a fan of the restaurant, most likely you love the yakisoba noodles that came with the meal. With the reopening announcement came the news that the glorious noodles will not be coming back. We still have time to change this. This past year has taken so much from so many people and this really is nothing in the grand scheme of things. However, it is something that people really enjoyed and was a huge part of the dinner experience at the restaurant. We understand that some things have to change, but does this really have to be one of the things? Who else is looking forward to having Lapu Lapu and enjoying some awesome food with the Cinderella Castle as your backdrop? I know I am. We are asking our friends at Disney who are in charge of the food selections at their restuarants to please reconsider and bring back the yakisoba noodles. We need your support because nothing goes better with those potstickers than some noodles!! Please sign today. Thank you!

The good news is that even though ‘Ohana does not list the iconic noodles in its reopening announcement, you can recreate the yakisoba noodles in your very own kitchen thanks to this copycat recipe.

More on ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

If you want to dine at ‘Ohana, please keep in mind that breakfast will not offer characters at this time due to the ongoing pandemic. Additionally, the dinner menu has changed slightly as, as we have noted earlier, there are no longer noodles on the menu. Disney has also added sausage and island shrimp casserole to the menu.

The current description of ‘Ohana reads:

Rise and Shine for Breakfast

You and your ʻohana can delight in an American breakfast influenced by Polynesian flavors.

Feast family-style on popular selections such as scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, Stitch and Mickey waffles, ham with pineapple, a variety of fresh fruits and ʻOhana pineapple bread.
