“Aloha Kalikimaka me ka Hau‘oli Makahiki Hou” — Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This year there is so much going on for the holidays at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa. If you have never been to Hawaii, you really don’t know what you are missing. Not only is it a tropical oasis, the Aulani Resort has bits of Disney magic for all that visit. Take a look at this holiday season at Aulani!
On Dec. 25, there will be a very special Christmas Ka Waʻa Lūʻau – a culinary and cultural journey celebrating the legends, people and natural wonders of Hawaiʻi. Just for Christmas, there will be some additional delicious offerings on the menu. For the lūʻau, there is a charge and reservations are required.
On select days in late December, harmonious holiday songs will resonate as strolling carolers perform in the Maka‘ala Lobby and Waikolohe Valley.
On Dec. 24 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Santa Claus will be at Aunty’s Beach House Also on Christmas Eve, Holiday Cheer on the Kipuka Courtyard means complimentary hot cocoa and holiday cookies from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Throughout the season, our pastry chefs will bring a bit of cool “Frozen” fascination to our warm winter days, with a stunning, hand-made pastry showpiece. The display will include two giant macaron trees with over 400 glittering macarons. A white chocolate tree will be the centerpiece, decorated with over 100 Mickey Mouse gingerbread cookies. The top of the tree will be adorned with everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf. The wintery scene will be complete with delicate sugar ice trees and snow babies frolicking in the “snow” with Santa Stitch.
Of course, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without indulgent treats to eat. This year, we have more scrumptious sweets than ever with candy cane Mickey macarons, holiday caramel apples, gingerbread spiced cream cheese coffee cake, peppermint brownies and much more, available for purchase. Plus, we’ll have exclusive Aulani holiday merchandise, like ornaments, so you can have a keepsake of your Aulani yuletide memories on your Christmas tree for years to come.
