    We’re thinking about planning a trip to Aulani Disney resort in Hawaii ,is this resort all inclusive? Specifically food .

    Aloha Tiffany Raquel, 

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy you're thinking about visiting the beautiful Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii. Last year my family travelled to Oahu for a stay at Disney's incredible resort on the island's West coast and we all dream of returning! We had the most incredible vacation at Aulani resort and we can't wait to bask on the beaches of the Ko Olina lagoon. We had a blast splashing in the Waikolohe Valley pool area, meeting Characters around the Resort, hunting for the mischievous Menehune on the Menehune Adventure Trail, learning to play the ukulele, and so much more!

    Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is not an all-inclusive resort but there are many things included in your stay such as Disney Character experiences, family and children's activities, Disney entertainment and storytelling, Aunty's Beach House and complimentary activities at the kids club, no resort fees and 5 pool areas in addition to the beach. There are wonderful restaurants on site and many dining options a walk away from the resort. Character dining is a fantastic way to enhance your meal while enjoying the company of beloved Disney Characters in a unique setting. At Aulani Resort, guests can mingle with Mickey Mouse and his pals during breakfast at Makahiki - The Bounty of the Islands. Here, you'll savor incredible food while surrounded by stunning local artwork, intricate stained glass, vivid murals, and dramatic lighting. If you prefer, you can dine alfresco on the lanai next to a serene koi pond, adding to the magical atmosphere. 

    My family's go-to eatery is the poolside Ulu Cafe, it is known for the poke bowls and sandwiches. If you're lounging on the beach, a frozen treat from Little ‘Opihi’s - beachside kiosk might be the perfect thing to cool you down. 

    Tip: Remember to check The Aulani ‘Iwa for the day’s activities. It lists the events, locations, whether or not it is a complimentary activity and it also notes if registration is required. All registrations are done at the Pau Hana Room(Community Hall). I highly recommend heading there first thing in the morning as popular activities fill up very fast!

    Tiffany Raquel, I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'm happy to help!
