News: Disney’s Aulani Resort Is Canceling Reservations Through Mid-October

Several of Disney’s hotels and resorts around the world have reopened, but others remain closed.


One of the resorts that is currently closed is Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Previously, Aulani pushed back its earliest available reservations into August. Now, Aulani is cancelling reservations at the resort through some of the fall.

Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa closed earlier this year, along with other Disney resorts.


Later on, Aulani pushed back available reservations into August, but the resort remained closed through the summer and still has not reopened. Not too long ago, we shared several reasons why we believed that Aulani would likely not reopen until October at the earliest. But, we also shared that an increase in COVID-19 cases in Hawaii could result in a lengthy closure for Aulani.


Now, we’ve got an update on Disney’s Aulani Resort and when it could reopen. As the Aulani website indicates, the Resort remains closed and a reopening date has not been identified.

We’ve received word, though, that reservations at Aulani through October 17th will be canceled. Guests who have a vacation to Aulani booked during the closure period can cancel their room reservations and Disney will waive any Disney-imposed room reservation cancellation penalties.


The Aulani website also currently notes, “Upon reopening, Aulani Resort rooms, restaurants and other locations may be limited in capacity and subject to restricted availability or closure based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing. Furthermore, experiences, services and amenities may be modified, have limited availability or may remain closed. Offerings are not guaranteed.”
