Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii welcomes all their Makamaka from around the world, year round. And in Hawaii, Makamaka means friend.
This beautiful Hawaiian retreat is located on the island of Oahu where guests “immerse themselves in the aloha spirit”. Visits to Aulani often leave guests making lifelong friendships and memories, which is why Makamaka has become such a special term.
The origins of Makamaka are from old Hawai’i, when there were no hotels and restaurants, so hospitality (ho’okipa) was commonplace among strangers. When guests and visitors shared this hospitality, they become more than friends- they became Makamaka. Whenever their paths would cross in the future, they would be sure to stop by for an “aloha”.
Here at Aulani, Cast Members await you with open arms and a dose of ho’okipa, ready to make you a Makamaka.
