Best Dinner and Lunch Options at Ulu Café

  1. Kalua pork flatbread
  2. Pizza– For about $25 the Ulu Cafe pizza is a pretty good choice for dinner!
  3. Poke bowl– Another fresh and tasty choice for lunch or dinner!

Ulu Café also has a SMALL selection of gluten-free pastries (Udi’s blueberry and chocolate muffins, a brownie and a cookie.)

All food is to-go, and if you place a hot food order you wait outside on this large patio for your order. Wait times for your food may vary but it was never more than 10 minutes after I ordered. Disney Aulani Ulu Café cast members are super friendly which I really appreciate.

Disney Aulani Ulu Café Seating

Unfortunately, there is a lack of seating anywhere near this cafe.

All Ulu Café tables have been removed as well as the tables near the Coffee Hut due to COVID protocols. At night, the sun deck tables are gated off and this leaves only 5 tables in the dark to eat your food   People, therefore, scatter around eating out of takeout boxes sitting on low walls or planters or heading back to their rooms for the evening.

Does the Disney Aulani Ulu Cafe have a Kama’aina Discount?

Unfortunately, Ulu Café doesn’t do Kama’aina (local resident) discounts. 


My favorite Disney-approved re-seller, Get Away Today, offers the best Disney discount tickets around. In addition to great discount prices, their customer service is top-notch. They have an entire department dedicated to making sure every order has a wonderful experience and they are on-call to help you during your vacation if you need them.

Buying tickets from Get Away Today is easy and convenient since all their tickets are sent electronically. You can take their vouchers and head straight to the gate without waiting in ticket booth lines. They also offer layaway plans so you can pay off your vacation over time. Don’t forget to mention THIS BLISS LIFE for your discount!
