Recently, we have seen ‘Ohana come back to life at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! The dining location is a table service food option at the monorail Resort and offers family-style meals for breakfast, late lunch, and dinner. Before the pandemic, breakfast was a character meal with Lilo, Stich, and Mickey Mouse; however, the characters have not yet returned to the location as of yet.

A few months ago, ‘Ohana removed the fan-favorite ‘Ohana Noodles from the skillet, which set off Disney foodies into a rage. Many love the noodles dearly and publically complained and started petitions to bring them back. It seemed Disney heard the cries as the noodles were soon back on the menu.

Now, there is a Reddit thread wondering if something else is missing from the menu. Gaelorian posted:

Can someone dispel a rumor that Ohana has discontinued its bread service and is now just serving Hawaiian rolls?

Having gone to ‘Ohana this week, I can attest that the Hawaiian rolls were being served over the popularly known bread service. There are some who have responded to the Reddit thread and noted that this may be a supply chain issue. Typically bread service usually has a variety of biscuit-looking bread with a variety of flavors and options. The chicken that the restaurant serves has also seemed to have undergone a change from what was previously offered.

The menu still notes “Signature ‘Ohana Bread with Honey Butter,” so hopefully, this means that the bread service will still return at a later date. Or, perhaps Hawaiian rolls are the new “signature” option. Pog juice was also removed as a beverage option; however, if you ask your server kindly, they may be able to bring you some out!
