Disney’s Aulani Resort Restaurant Menus

Disney’s newest resort, Aulani, opens very soon in Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii, and offers restaurants that emphasize local flavors with cuisine from around the world. They’ve posted the menus for several of the table-service restaurants, so let’s check out what we’re going to eat on our (probably fictional) trip to Oahu!

    Do you think they will offer an Hawaiian plate lunch? If you’re visiting the Islands you have to try it. I emphasize “try”.

    A shave – ice truck on site!!!!!! I may move in! :)

    Yikes – $17 for Loco Moco. If I visit Hawaii again, I think I’ll stick to the Waikiki Resort (Loco Moco for only $9.50 there) and make a side trip to Aulani.

    Menus look amazing! But no spam? ;-)
    Still wondering about how all the news coming out of DVC today is going to affect Aulani?

    Cripes, are those prices in American dollars? Almost $20 for an appetizer? Yikes!

  6. AJ says:

    Alan — I’m pretty sure they will offer plate lunch!

    Chelsi — I love shave ice! The truck is from my honeymoon in Kauai, but they will have a shave ice place on site at Aulani!

    JoAnn — Way to save!

    Jrriddle — Ha ha! Great point on the spam. Good question on the DVC updates, too.

    orljustin — Scary, eh? Hawaii is more expensive than WDW!

    I’ve made myself a note so that when we’re there in October I remember to go to the kids’ section of the breakfast buffet at the Character Breakfast to get some of that “Chocolate Milk-dipped Haupia Bread French Toast stuffed with Bananas and Peanut Butter”. It’s Disney–I’m quite sure they aren’t going to tell me I’m too old to have anything from the kids’ portion of the buffet! Although why that isn’t mentioned on the adults’ portion I just don’t know!
