    Hi! My boyfriend and I will be visiting Oahu in late July and want to make a stop over at Aulani. Can non-resort guests have a meal, do some shopping and have some pictures taken? We stayed last year and want to visit AMAAMA again!

    Aloha Dana!

    I definitely don't blame you for wanting to return for another visit at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i. My family and I had the chance to visit here this spring, and I am already counting the days until our next stay!

    Dana, I am pleased to confirm that day guests are welcome at Aulani to enjoy the restaurants, shopping and the spectacular Laniwai Spa. As you are interested in dining at Aulani's fabulous open-air restaurant, ‘AMA‘AMA, which boasts stunning views of Ko Olina Beach, I highly recommend that you make advance dining reservations, particularly if you are interested in dining during the ever-popular sunset hours.

    Day guests can enjoy complimentary valet and self-parking at Aulani for up to 4 hours when spending at least $35 at select Aulani restaurants, including ‘AMA‘AMA – Contemporary Island Cooking and Makahiki – The Bounty of the Islands, or at Laniwai, A Disney Spa, or when making a purchase of $50 or more at select Aulani merchandise locations.

    Dana I hope this information is helpful as you continue with your vacation planning. Wishing you a wonderful time in Oahu!
