    I know dining reservations for Makahiki at Aulani open at 12:01am 30 days in advance. But is that 12:01am Hawaii time? Also, do babies in high chairs need to be included in the number of people on the reservation? Thanks

    Aloha, Amy, and Welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited to chat about your upcoming visit to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. As Disney Vacation Club Members, we had the opportunity to visit a few years ago, and my family still declares it was their favorite vacation they have ever taken. Let's take a look at dining reservations during your stay. 

    Makahiki- The Bounty of the Islands, was one of our trip's most memorable dining experiences, particularly the delightful Character breakfast. Advance Dining Reservations for Aulani open up 30 days out at midnight in the Hawaii-Aleution Standard Time Zone. It is also important to note that Hawaii does not recognize Daylight Saving. Depending on the season of your visit, this could be impactful. Also, everyone attending the meal, including infants in high chairs, will need to be counted in the reservation. If you encounter any difficulty making reservations online, I recommend calling Resort Guest Services when they open. Make sure to download the Aulani Resort App to view the Resort maps and the Daily 'Iwa Activity Calender before your visit. 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club adventures.

    Enjoy making magical memories!
