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.
Here are Several Ways to Get Groceries Near Disney’s Aulani
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 in Kapolei is my favorite place to shop because their 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!
Island Country Market
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, snacks, and even mini-plate lunches. You can also find toiletries like toothpaste and sunscreen and your standard trinkets/souvenirs that are less expensive than at the actual Aulani resort.
The last time we visited Aulani, I headed over to Island Country Market and bought some organic eggs and salsa to make the family breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised at how many organic options they had!
They also had a good selection of alcohol, because as we know alcoholic drinks at Aulani are expensive. We partake while poolside and they are worth the price but if you want to keep your room stocked with wine or beer, Island Country Market has several options!
Target at Kapolei is a good place to get groceries but you aren’t going to get the local products like you would if you went to Safeway or a farmer’s market. What I like is that Target has anything you would need for your trip!
So you can get groceries, beach supplies, and toiletries and they have a Starbucks in the store!
DISCOUNT DISNEY TICKETS
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!
GROCERY DELIVERY SERVICE
If you don’t want to shop for your groceries yourself, then Instacart is a great alternative. If you join, they often have promos like your first delivery is free. Instacart has Costco and Safeway in Kapolei as delivery options.
It’s important to note that some of the prices may be higher on Instacart than in the store but you are paying for convenience. 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.
Go here to get $10 off your first Instacart order!
