They HAVE changed the bread pudding, though you probably won't notice the change. I noticed, but I'm a baker and look at every part of a dessert to be able to reproduce it.

What used to be "banana foster sauce" is now caramel. To make up for it, they place sliced bananas on the plate.

There's also a decrease in the amount of cinnamon in the bread itself.

But, once it's all together on the plate, you won't notice any difference whatsoever in the taste. The cinnamon loss is hidden by the extra sweetness of the caramel, and the bananas not being cooked in the sauce makes them a touch harder and thus easier to get on the spoon. All in all, I think the changes are an improvement over the original.

I don't know what the salad was before, but I like fruit in my salad and usually put a lot of it in any salad I make, so that's fine. And since I don't know the original dressing, I guess I won't know a difference!

And I'd be excited I think for more than just broccoli, though I love broccoli.

I would probably want a variety of sauces, I usually like to combine sauces at restaurants such as this, or at a hibachi place, so that's kinda disappointing.

All in all, I still want to go - and CAN'T! Argh.
Keep trying online....I had the same problem in March last year...and also can't get anything earlier than 8:15 last week in April/beginning of May of this year...but I keep trying! Last year I got at a 5:30 the week before we left! So it's def possible! GOOD LUCK!

No!!! I love Ohana!

What sauce is on their potstickers now? The whole reason I love the place is for the noodles and potstickers.

I was wondering this also. If they took the sweet and sour away, what are they served with now?

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

There is still sauce on the potstickers. I didn't dissect it, but I would say it was a sweet and sour glaze. Just as delicious as always!! I think people are reading too much into the very minor changes. Ohana has always been a favorite for us. We went right when the changes were made (before this thread even existed). Yes, I realized a few things were different, but my meal was just as delicious as before!

The menu changes don't sound that bad to me. Ohana is our entire family's favorite place to eat in all of WDW. We have eaten there every time we vacation in WDW. I have yet to have a bad experience there. We will be making our ADR's in two days and you can bet Ohana will be on the list! I am optimistic these minor changes will only make the experience better.

They do have sweet & sour. I requested and received some on 2/3. They may not want to give it out, but it is there. I guess it depends on the server. I just posted our Ohana dinner as part of my dining review in that forum yesterday if anyone wants to see it. I included the sauce in there. My server said it was the same as what was on the potstickers.

We were just there last week and the bread pudding did have the banana foster sauce and there were not any bananas on the side...maybe they went back to the original recipe
