    Hi! I would like to know if at Disney Aulani Resort there are gluten free options for meals. Thank you!

    Aloha, Carmen Luz!

    Welcome to planDisney.  It sounds like the line where the sky meets the sea is calling you to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa –– how exciting!  While I haven't gotten to experience the beauty of this incredible Resort for myself, it's at the very top of my Disney Dream List.  So, I hope you're ready for plenty of sun, sand, and relaxation (and let's be honest, couldn't we all use a little more of that?) –– I have a feeling that a legendary Hawaiian adventure is in store for you during your upcoming Aulani Resort visit!

    I've got some great news –– I spoke with an Aulani Cast Member who confirmed that there are several table service dining options that can accommodate a gluten-free diet.  At 'AMA'AMA, you'll find special dietary menus available, with both vegetarian and gluten-free options, while at Makahiki, chefs will be happy to make dietary substitutions and offer alternative options for Guests with special dietary needs.  To make sure that the chefs at each restaurant are aware of your dietary needs, I recommend noting your request at the time you make your dining reservation, and before you arrive, you can also send an email to to discuss your specific needs and get a little more information about what options are available for you during your stay.  Once you arrive at the Resort, you can even request to speak with a chef or Cast Member who specializes in dietary needs, to help make sure you'll have the food you need throughout your visit.

    Mahalo for visiting planDisney, Carmen Luz.  I hope this helped to answer your question and I'm wishing you a vacation that's filled with delicious dishes from beginning to end when you visit Aulani Resort!
