Reservations begin today for 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort ahead of the July 9 2021 reopening for the restaruant.

In the absence of characters, Disney has slashed the cost of breakfast to $26.63 for adults, and $14.91 (including tax, excluding tip). Previous pricing with characters was $43.67 for adults.

Dinner has increased slightly in price, with adults at $58.58 and children at $35.15. A 10% discount is available at breakfast and dinner for annual passholders.

For breakfast, you will start with pineapple-coconut breakfast bread, move on to Stitch and Mickey Mouse waffles, then dig into “eggs”cellent breakfast skillets with ham, sausage, and breakfast potatoes.

The ‘Ohana dinner features all-you-care-to-enjoy platters of grilled beef steak, roasted chicken, sausage, and island shrimp casserole served with fried rice and roasted broccolini. ‘Ohana pot stickers, crispy soy chicken wings, and the signature ‘Ohana bread pudding served warm with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream are back.

Bookings open June 10 for dining from July 9 2021. ‘Ohana will be open daily for breakfast from 7:30am - 12:00pm and for dinner from 3:30pm -10:00pm.

One factor of the limited menus is the team that approves them is also trying to get Disneyland up and running too. It looks like Tratorria al Forno is the first menu to go back to a pre Covid line up, take a look at the dinner menu, it got a great update. I think we will eventually see more of this as staffing and operations get back to normal.

I know what you're saying, but I think it's too early to say COVID is an excuse as opposed to a legitimate reason. Labor shortages and supply issues are impacting services everywhere right now, not just at WDW.

Agree this may be the case but my fear is will this menu still be in place next June. Maybe the old menu comes back when characters do?

WDW streamlined menus a ton when the dining plan came out and used COVID as an opportunity to streamline them anymore. Lot cheaper to operate as a veritable banquet hall with a couple choices than it is to offer diverse individually prepped entrees.

Are we sure this is a permanent menu as opposed to one being dictated by short term lack of availability and labor shortages? In my area restaurants are having a hard time getting crab and lobster and virtually every one is hiring for all positions. It seems a lot of the WDW restaurants are going for streamlined menus now.

No. This sucks!

Got to be honest. This menu sounds like a cheap imitation of the real Ohana I know and love. The grilled shrimp on those huge skewers was my absolute favorite part of the meal and made it feel worth the price to me. The sad shrimp casserole replacement reminds me of the "macaroni and cheese with a few shrimp" that they serve at Chef Mickeys. And the noodles they brought back aren't even the good ones. Are people that easily fooled? The best noodles that they used to serve had a peanut butter sauce. I definitely won't be going back, not that it matters, other people will gladly take my spot. The thing that Disney doesn't seem to understand is that are practicing "death by a thousand cuts". Every little thing like this makes me way less likely to book another trip in the future until one day I just stop going. The combination of all these small cost cutting measures means that real soon they will lose out on at least my $7,000 I spend every year.

There are two new kinds of bread: 'Ohana Coconut-Papaya Scones and Cheddar-Bacon Biscuits Those both seem pretty unique and fun.

Shrimp will be in a casserole to ensure you have to eat carbs with your shrimp to get full. Pineapple bread was a fun and unique item.

Ugh the new noodles don’t look the same! My guess is an issue with no grilled menu items?? But now we gotta try it.

I remember one server telling us not to eat too much bread so we would have enough room for the good stuff.

I'm guessing the shrimp is a supply issue. I always referred to the bread as a suckers bet. The bread is good, but you don't want to fill up on bread.

I'm thankful when I went here it was in 2019, sad how they removed the shrimp and pineapple bread. This was a special dinner for our honeymoon and I was hoping to return one day. Not with these items missing though.
