Walt Disney World ® Resort
Enjoy Summer Treats Featuring Moana and Friends at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
by Nikki Moreno
If you’re like me, you have been craving a DOLE Whip® treat ever since reading the “Foodie Guide to All Your DOLE Whip Dreams” on the Disney Parks Blog. Well, I have even more mouth-watering news to share with you. Now at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, new Dole Whip soft-serve desserts are just the beginning to a summer of delicious treats.
Remember how Moana crossed an ocean of adventure to become a wayfinder, inspiring all of us to embrace the explorer in each of us? When I’m traveling, I love exploring new and sweet culinary experiences. You don’t have to ask me twice to indulge my sweet tooth, especially when they come with a bit of Disney inspiration. Little ‘Opihi’s at Aulani Resort has plenty of options to satisfy your adventurous hunger for summer treats. The grab-and-go kiosk offers up a variety of beverages and sweet snacks that you can enjoy while dipping your feet in the sand on the beautiful Ko Olina beach.
Whether you are splashing down waterslides in the Waikolohe Valley pool area, snorkeling in Rainbow Reef or taking part in a scavenger hunt along the Menehune Adventure Trail, being an adventurous explorer at Aulani Resort definitely works up your appetite. To get you started on your summer treats to-eat list at Aulani Resort, here’s a sampling of some of the delicious desserts we have for you to enjoy:
The Moana Dole Whip Fresh Fruit Sundae features Dole Whip pineapple in a crispy waffle bowl topped with fresh pineapple, sprinkles and a white chocolate image of Moana.
Or have a Stitch Dole Whip Fresh Fruit Sundae with Dole Whip watermelon in a waffle bowl topped with sprinkles, fresh and a white chocolate image of Stitch.
You can also choose Mickey or Minnie Dole Whip treats or try them all during your stay.
Little ‘Opihi’s has a selection of treats for every taste bud. You can also choose a Chocolate Dipped Banana with Macadamia Nuts. I love this one because it features an image of Moana made of white chocolate.
My favorite singing turtle, ‘Olu Mel, has his own cupcake. You can find this adorably sweet confection at Mama’s Snack Stop.
Now, if you need one more treat to drench your Aulani Resort summer memories in, then definitely try a Mickey Shave Ice – Aulani Resort’s unique take on a refreshing local dessert with flavors like mango, pineapple, coconut, lilikoi, orange and guava. Just ask for three of the flavor options at the Pāpālua Shave Ice snack shop to create a magical rainbow of flavor.
Reservations for Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa are now available through 2022.
