Planning your vacation and dreading those lines at Disney theme parks when what you crave is a quiet and stress-free vacation? Disney theme parks can be exhausting for some of us, but now we can have a Disney vacation without the long lines because Disney’s latest creation is not a theme park but a resort hotel. Aulani, a beachfront ADA compliant property, sports a saltwater snorkeling lagoon, water slides and a “lazy river,” an 18,000-square-foot spa, two restaurants and indoor and outdoor meeting and event space. A world-class marina delivers sports fishing and recreational boating.

For guests with food allergies or dietary requirements can still enjoy a variety of culinary options at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i.
Chefs can often make on-the-spot modifications to current menu items so that dining can be a delectable affair for those with lifestyle dietary requirements. Guests with metabolic disorders or multiple allergies, however, should make any special meal requests at least 14 days prior to their arrival.
Participating Restaurants. Special dietary requests may be accommodated at Aulani table-service restaurants that accept reservations:

A single Guest with multiple allergies/intolerances or multiple Guests with allergies/intolerances within the same party
Our restaurants will do their best to accommodate Guest dietary requirements but cannot guarantee that they will be able to meet all requests.
Aulani will use reasonable efforts to prevent the introduction of the allergen of concern into the food through close attention during our sourcing, preparation and handling processes. However, it is ultimately up to the Guest to use his or her individual discretion to make an informed choice regarding whether to order any particular item.
Aulani cannot guarantee that allergens may not have been introduced during another stage of the food-chain process or even inadvertently, during preparation. We do not have separate kitchens to prepare allergen-free items or separate dining areas for Guests with allergies or intolerances.
