Aloha Insiders! Very exciting news for Aulani today! Starting May 7, character dining will be returning to Makahiki Restaurant!
This restaurant is named for the Makahiki season, the traditional Hawaiian celebration of the harvest. You can choose to dine on the lanai overlooking a koi pond or sit inside amid colorful décor where the spirit of Makahiki is celebrated through local artwork.
The Disney Parks Blog made this announcement today and advised that Disney has made some adjustments to the experience with the health and safety of our cast and guests in mind.
Aloha Kakahiaka means good morning to you! This is not just a Hawaiian language lesson, but also a line sung by Aunty during the character breakfast at Makahiki Restaurant, which I’m happy to announce will return on May 7 to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.
At the character breakfast, Mickey Mouse and his friends will join Aunty or Uncle for fun songs and entertainment while guests enjoy a delightful three-course breakfast. Upon arrival at Makahiki, and throughout the breakfast experience, guests will have an opportunity to take photos with Disney friends to mark the occasion!
Breakfast will be available 7 days a week with characters appearing Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays. Character dining will also be only exclusively available to resort Guests for the month of May.
What’s on the menu you may ask? So much delicious food and the menu is already making me hungry for breakfast! Fluffy macadamia nut pancakes with a Tahitian vanilla sauce, Hawaiian-style Loco Moco with hamburger steak, pastries and seasonal fresh fruit. Keiki (or kids) can also choose the Mickey and Minnie waffle, which includes a Belgian mickey waffle and red velvet Minnie waffle.
Breakfast reservations will open on April 26 and can be made by calling Aulani Resort at (808) 674-6200.
