AAAGGGHHH! We were just there in November and the 2 sauces they eliminated were the ones I loved. DH loves the peanut sauce so he's not as concerned...

I understand not wasting the sauces, but I think they should be available on request. Cracker Barrel had a similar issue when they opened in Wisconsin - they always automatically served grits. After throwing out too many, they changed it to be availably only on request. I'd like to see O'hana take that approach.

This would make enough of a difference in my enjoyment of the meal (I didn't just use them on the dumplings - I used them on the meats also) that at these prices I wouldn't go back.

Is there somewhere we can send our feedback even if we won't be eating there during the trial?

These changes sound awful! I love the salad and veggies the way they are plus I use a little of each sauce.

I hope they go back to normal after the month. I have Ohana booked for the night of the Princess Half Marathon because my first choice California Grill is already closed. Not sure where I could move my celebration dinner to if 'Ohana is crossed of our list.

Not happy about the changes!!! I just booked for our April vacation for 2nights! Now what? I'll have to wait to hear if they switch back. Do they still have the noodles, and are they still the same? Love the noodles!

Sounds great to me.

And those with allergies just need to speak up about it and I am sure they will accommodate you by removing fruit or vegetables from the sides so you have something safe to eat. That is what they did before.

Changes sound good to me, except perhaps the sauce. They'll probably add those back.

As someone with a bad peanut allergy, the fact that they are *trying* to only serve the peanut sauce is disappointing to me. WDW, in my experience, typically avoids using peanuts in food as much as possible because it is such a predominant allergy. I usually don't have to worry, and when we went to 'Ohana, they just would leave off the peanut sauce and bring the others. My DH and I really enjoyed the sweet and sour sauce.

The other changes do not necessarily appeal to me, but at the same time, they wouldn't keep me from going. The peanut sauce being the only one offered could. I'll wait until after the trial to decide whether or not to cancel my ressie there.

This is disappointing to me. We loved it the way it was. May have to rethink my ressies for June.

I guess if this trial becomes permanent I'm cancelling our May reservation.

Pretty much every change adds something either DH or I don't like.

This was the one restaurant DH requests every time too. DD had a blast there in October.

Yuck

None of the changes made to the menu are positive to me or my family. This is usually a must do for us and if menu changes are permanent may have remove the ADR from my plans.

Doesn't seem like that big of a change to me.

Has anyone who has eaten there recently asked the manager what the dates of the trial are?

Yum! Changes sound good to me with the exception of the dressing change. I love that honey lime dressing. I love mango and papaya and only used the peanut sauce! It was so good.

Now, if only they would change that bread!

I hope they bring back the sauces, I love the sweet and sour type sauce they had and always asked for extra. I don't care for the peanut sauce and the meat can be dry so I need a decent amount of sauce to put on the meat. So I hope they bring that back at least for special requests.

Otherwise the menu items don't sound like that drastic of a change so it should be fine for a little variety. I just want to know that the sauces will be available again, taking those away is crazy.

This exactly. My youngest DD has a severe peanut allergy, and I have a severe latex allergy. So, between the papaya and the peanut sauce, we would be at the most uncomfortable table in the house. We leave in a few days, and I just cancelled my ADR.
