Are there Disney Characters Experiences at Aulani- A Disney Resort and Spa?

Yes! While visiting this one-of-a-kind, picturesque, family-friendly resort and spa located on the sandy beaches of Ko Olina, Hawai’i you can meet a variety of Disney characters. Characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Stitch and Moana can be found at different locations throughout the resort.

Are there Character Dining options at Aulani?

Yes, there are two Character Dining experiences for guests staying at Aulani. There is Aunty’s Breakfast Celebration at the Makahiki, or Menehune Mischief.

Aulani Character Breakfast

Aunty’s Breakfast Celebration: From Tuesday to Sunday guests can start the morning off with Aunty’s Breakfast Celebration at the Makahiki. This casual, family-friendly restaurant is named for the Makahiki season, the traditional Hawaiian celebration of the harvest. For breakfast, guests can enjoy a selection of family favorites, which may include pancakes, waffles, French toast, island fruits, traditional Asian offerings, fresh-baked pastries, daily specialties and a build-your-own omelet station. During the meal there’s an island-inspired, ukulele performance by Aunty, a kind and inviting O’ahu native and local historian, and visits from much-loved Disney characters who will drop by for photos, autographs, fun interactions, and maybe a few special surprises.

Menehune Mischief – If dinner is more up your alley, then you’re in luck. Guests can join Aulani Resort’s beloved Uncle, a welcoming storyteller, and some favorite Disney characters on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings for a musical song and story revue called Menehune Mischief. For dinner, Makahiki’s fresh, locally sourced buffet is loaded with delicious favorites the whole family will love. Everyone will want to join in the fun as Uncle and his Disney friends celebrate the Menehune, magical little people of Hawaiian legend. You and your family will feel like part of the magic as these enchanting tales are brought to life through delightful music, sing-alongs, and interactive adventures.

Reservations for Aunty’s Breakfast Celebration at the Makahiki and the Menehune Mischief dinner and show are highly recommended. Guests can call (808)674-6200 to make reservations for parties of 10 or less. If you are dining with a party larger than 10, please call (808) 674-6330 to make reservations for these captivating experiences.

Disney World 2016

During “Say Aloha to Moana”, guests can join Moana to share stories, hugs and photographs. Come tell her the tales of your travels and hear all about her incredible ocean-going adventures with Maui.
At the edge of the sea, surrounded by the enchantment of O’ahu, guests can gather by the fire pit as Aulani’s beloved storyteller, Uncle, brings legends of the island to life during Mo’olelo Fireside Stories with Moana. Set sail in your imagination as Uncle recounts the tales of the ancient wayfinders who settled Oceania. Then, get swept away as Moana tells of her own incredible journey alongside Maui.

She’ll have you captivated as she tells her stories of encountering hilarious and incredible adventures along the way.
