Update on Aulani Resort Operations
July 23, 2020
While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our Members, Guests and employees remain the top priority for Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. In line with direction from health experts and government officials, Aulani Resort & Spa is currently closed and a reopening date has not been identified. We will continue to carefully evaluate this complex and fluid situation.
Upon reopening, Aulani Resort rooms, restaurants and other locations may be limited in capacity and subject to restricted availability or closure based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing. Furthermore, experiences, services and amenities may be modified, have limited availability or may remain closed. Offerings are not guaranteed. We will provide more information as it becomes available. We reserve the right to cancel any reservations or purchases and provide applicable refunds.
Our focus remains on the health and safety of the entire Disney community, including the well-being of the Cast Members who are caring for and securing the Aulani Resort during the closure. We’re currently evaluating new and enhanced safety measures to help us all stay well. Learn more about these measures
