Ohanas Opening?

No official word.

There's been speculation that 'Ohana will reopen with the rest of the resort in July, which would make sense in terms of timing, but would also mean a truncated ADR window at this point, and there's been no indication of CMs getting trained... 🤷‍♀️

As the other resort dining locations reopened there were some pretty drastic menu and experience changes (Like Cape May, Chef Mickey's) so I wouldn't be surprised that occurring there as well. O'Hana was the catchphrase of the former resort overlay which was displaced by Moana so a name change is also not out of the question either.

Go inside, bang the drum, and find out.

I hope they open by August. It will be my first time going there. I've had the bread pudding twice though. Once at the 'Irish' bar and once at Kona's.

Those changes were to remove buffets in lieu of family style options. 'Ohana is already family style. My expectation is they have new protocols regarding the skewers not being served to multiple tables. So perhaps you get another skillet with the meats, etc.

That said, I do think the menu had gotten a tiny bit stale. They used to refresh it from time to time, including changing up the meats (I remember they had grilled turkey for a while that was fantastic). Would be nice if they did a little something to zhuzh it up, while still keeping it mostly the same.

If the Cape May changes are any indicators, I'd expect a basic bland menu and upcharges for anything else. I also expect Stitch and Lilo characters not to be present at all.

You might be right about Stich & Co. The breakfast food there always seemed bland and uninspired to me. Other than the pineapple sticky bread it was just all you can eat food court food (eggs, standard sausage, biscuits).
