We went for the Character Breakfast Buffet during our stay in Aulani. This was our first Disney resort stay and character breakfast and it was a great experience for our kid and us kids at heart! The food selection was good – we had a hearty meal! But the best part is the experience with the different Disney Characters roaming... More

A bit overpriced for families Great variety of food and a great selection for kids. Seafood and prime rib were excellent didn't have a reservation but didn't have to wait long

They had cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits, ham, omelette station, toast / bagels, a couple of japanese items, and more. we came here for breakfast with the family to celebrate my daughter's 2nd birthday and i thought it'd be nice for...

I have to say I'm not a big fan of buffets except for Makahiki, this place is awesome! And being a Disney property why would I even be surprised? My husband and I have come here several times most recently with some new friends that we met recently. Once again the food did not disappoint. The setting for dinner is... More

This restaurant is a buffet for dinner and it's pretty pricey. So for a special night we thought we'd treat ourselves. We got dressed up and when asked if we were celebrating we told them yes our anniversary. So the hostess shows us to a table that presently has a woman standing beside it holding a child whose feet are... More

This is a decent buffet, it's convenient and easy. Kids are considered an adult at age 9, this is a bit ridiculous if you ask me. Do the character breakfast, it's fun but wait until the last day otherwise kids will want to do it every day.

We thought we were going to a character meal, but apparently that is only at certain times. Regardless, the buffet was full of delicious food and our server was wonderful!

Makahiki, on the grounds of the Aulani Resort in Ko Olina, serves an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy walk around and provide a joyful time for the young children - I guess, for the adults too. It's rather pricey, but we went for the experience of watching our 2, 4, and 6 year old granddaughters have... More
