Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, Now Requiring Guests to Provide Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination or Negative Test Taken Within 48 Hours to Dine On Property

Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i, has once again updated its health and safety guidelines in accordance with new regulations put in place by the City & County of Honolulu.

Guests 12 and older will now be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 48 hours, in order to dine on property. Unvaccinated guests who wish to dine at Aulani may need to take multiple tests during their stay in order to comply with the new regulation.


Aulani will also limit access to its food & beverage outlets to guests of the resort, in line with Honolulu’s newly-implemented policies.

Here is the statement from the Aulani website:

Effective Sept. 13, 2021, all Aulani Resort food & beverage outlets, including quick service and takeaway, will be restricted to resort guests only. Per City & County of Honolulu guidelines, we will require proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours for all guests ages 12 and older dining on property.

Other recent changes at the Aulani Resort include the reopening of Laniwai, A Disney Spa back on June 15.

Shouldn’t vaccinated people be required to test as well as there are so many “breakthrough cases?” The vaccines don’t seem to do much against the variants, so these policies make no sense.

Negative testing is bull days before the cruise. The incubation period is up to 2 wks (4-7 days is most common it seems). I can be negative 2 days ago and be infectious today. It is all about viral load. It is just virtue signaling. Have rapid tests onboard for symptomatic guests and they quarantine in their staterooms.

Absolutely absurd. I’d cancel my stay if I was booked there.
