    Does Aulani still offer the Ali Cafe Dining plan and if so what is the cost and what does it include? We are visiting in November and staying in Vacation Club .

    Aloha David, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Hawaii is one of my favorite vacation destinations. When I step off the plane in the islands, the first thing that I notice is the air smells sweet thanks to the lush flora. I can almost envision it right now. Did you know that Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa was recently named as the #1 Best Hotel or Resort for Families, 2018 from HAWAI’ I Magazine? How awesome is that? And YOU get to vacation there! Can I jump on a plane and join you??

    You have a bounty of dining options to choose from at the Resort, but unfortunately, the Ali Cafe Dining plan has been discontinued. The great thing about staying in Disney Vacation Club Villas is that your 1-Bedroom or larger accommodation comes with a full kitchen. Cast Members at the Resort assure me that there is grocery shopping close by, and then you can use the kitchen to its full extent!

    If you don’t feel like cooking, no worries, the Resort has you covered! Enjoy a delightful meal filled with international flavors at Makahiki - The Bounty of the Islands. The family-friendly restaurant overlooks a koi pond and the Waikolohe Pool. There you can celebrate the “harvest” (Makahiki) season with some of your favorite Disney Pals at breakfast. If you prefer a buffet dinner, return Sunday, Monday, or Thursday evening for fresh locally-sourced food with Uncle and friends.

    David, If you have any other questions, please swim back! As Travel + Leisure magazine stated, at Aulani, “the magical details are plentiful.” I know you and your family will find your legend there.
