‘Ohana Noodles are Back on the Menu!

‘Ohana Noodles are Back on the Menu!

For a short time this weekend, the dinner menu at ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort looked a little different. Instead of the usual noodles, guests were surprised to find fried rice in their place.  And to say the reaction was one of disappointment would be an understatement.

Turns out that the decision to substitute the rice for the noodles was not a planned menu change. When the Cast Members arrived at the restaurant on Friday, they were given some bad news – the restaurant food supplier was out of noodles, and they would not have any back in stock for three days.

The chef’s had mere hours to come up with a new recipe to serve that evening, so they did the very best that they could.  Thanks to some quick thinking, they came up with a fried rice dish to serve to guests for the next few days until the noodles were available to be delivered again.

Cast Members got another (much happier) surprise on Sunday when the delivery truck brought noodles, one day ahead of schedule. There was a collective sigh of relief that the menu could be reset, and noodles could be served again with other guest favorites such as the wings and potstickers.

There were a few recent planned menu changes on both the drink menu and to the dinner salad.

The ‘Ohana salad is now a mix of kale, spinach, and radicchio with cranberries and crunchy noodles and a light and delicious honey vinaigrette.

Tiki ‘Ehiku

There are two new specialty cocktails – Paradise Punch and Tiki ‘Ehiku – and a new mocktail called the Keiki Lemonade. The Paradise Punch is a delicious mix of rums, whiskey, tequila, cranberry juice, coconut water, and tropical juices.  The Tiki ‘Ehiku is a yummy mix of rums citrus and tropical juices with a hint of cinnamon. The Keiki Lemonade is a delightful mix of lemonade, pineapple, passion fruit, and citrus. Definitely try them out!
