Disney’s Aulani Resort is located on the West side of Oahu and arguably, there aren’t too many options nearby to get groceries. Most of the villas have full kitchens which allow guests to cook their own food. Today I’m discussing ways to get groceries near Disney’s Aulani Resort.
If you have a car and are going to go grocery shopping before arriving at the resort stop at Safeway (990 Farrington N 400, Kapolei, HI 96707), Foodland (9850 Kapolei Pkwy, Kapolei, HI 967070, Target (94450 Kapolei Pkwy ste 100, Kapolei, HI 96707) in Kapolei. Kapolei is about a 10-15 minute drive from Aulani and depending on the traffic is a good option for stocking up on snacks and drinks.
Foodland is my favorite place to shop because the produce tends to be better and the poke bar is delicious! I recommend signing up for the rewards programs at the stores to take advantage of any sale prices. You don’t have to be a local to become a member of any of the rewards programs at Foodland or Safeway!
If you don’t want to deal with shopping for yourself there is a grocery delivery service called Island Grocery Service. You can shop for groceries through the website site and also choose a delivery day. This service asks for your airline, flight number and estimated time of arrival to the resort to make sure your groceries are delivered on time. The minimum requirement to purchase on Island Grocery Service website is $75.
Another option if you don’t have a car, is to walk across the street to the Island Country Market (a fancier ABC Store) to grab essentials. You will find milk, cereal, lots of snacks and even mini-plate lunches. You can also find beer/liquor and your standard trinkets/souvenirs that are less expensive than on the actual Aulani resort.
If you don’t want to shop for your groceries yourself, then Island Grocery Service is a great alternative. Otherwise, there are several stores nearby to stock up on groceries, just remember that the cost of food is significantly higher in Hawaii than on the mainland.
