Although we’ve seen some Aulani Resort merchandise pop up in Disney World, we really do dream of being able to go there more often. Many Aulani restaurants reopened with the resort, but one has been closed because it’s getting an update — well, Disney just announced more details about that restaurant’s reopening!

The signature restaurant, ‘AMA ‘AMA, will be reopening soon — but with some changes! The oceanside restaurant is going to be a dinner-only dining experience with a new theme and a ” new, upscale dinner-only menu backed by a dynamic culinary team that invigorates each locally-inspired dish, cocktail, wine, and dessert with the Disney service and attention to detail guests have come to know and love at Aulani Resort.”



Disney Imagineer Jeanette Lomboy worked in collaboration with others to create a dining space that has “familiar details seemingly left by generations of family members, including our own beloved Aunty and Uncle, who lived in this space and continued to expand on it over time.



New light fixtures inspired by traditional Hawaiian fish baskets and an alluring central light fixture composed of fin-like elements that swim above the entrance, enhance the connection between the restaurant and its namesake, the ‘ama‘ama fish –historically the most abundant and vital fish of Hawai‘i. We are excited to welcome you and your ʻohana back to ʻAMA ʻAMA to celebrate and enhance your vacation dining experience.”

The grand reopening of ‘AMA ‘AMA is scheduled for fall 2022 — Disney will share details about the new menu and reservations at a later date. We’ll be sure to keep you updated, so be sure to check back with us often!
