Disney's Aulani Opens Poolside Snack Stand

Tasty news from Aulani, Disney's resort and spa on Oahu: In addition to the formal restaurant, the high-end buffet and the al fresco poolside diing, Mama’s Snack Stop, a quick-service eatery will open this June in the Waikolohe Valley (the waterpark in between the two towers of the hotel).

Ideal for kids, Mama's will serve hot dogs, chicken tenders and other comfort foods. The menu includes a choice of bread, sauce and type of sausage, including all-beet hot dog, Hawaiian Winner, or Portuguese sausage. Clients can also choose a buffalo ranch chicken tender dog, fries, Maui Chips, a macadamia pineapple cupcake and fruit.

Aulani is Disney's first project in Hawaii, and opened in September. At the time, we noted the lack of quick and affordable meal options for families, and according to a statement, the new restaurant is a result of guest feedback. It's good to know that Disney's listening, we say.
