    Oi Danilo!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I am so very excited for you and your upcoming trip to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa in Kapolei, Hawaii. My husband and I went this summer to enjoy our anniversary and it was incredible. The treats at Papalua Shave Ice Snack Shop were so delicious, and for an additional fee, comes in the shape of Mickey Ears. There are several flavors available throughout the year, and my favorite was a combination of haupia and lychee! 

    Dining at Aulani is nothing short of magical. Being able to see your favorite Disney characters in the Hawaiian-inspired attire during a meal really brings home the Disney magic. Makahiki offers a character experience during breakfast hours, where Mickey, Minnie and Friends make their way around the restaurant to meet and greet Guests. Prior to COVID-19, it was a buffet experience, however, now Guests can select their entrée, along with a baked goods basket and a platter of fresh fruit. You do not need to be staying on property to make a reservation at Makahiki.  You can make your dining reservation on the Aulani website. You are free to take pictures with the characters during your dining experience. They will have PhotoPass photographers on hand to take photos of you with Mickey and other characters, however, those are not included in the price of your dining reservation. You can purchase those separately during your meal.

    Danilo, I hope you have an incredible time enjoying the beauty of Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa. We encourage you to visit us at planDisney em português for any future Disney vacation planning advice!
