Cooking in Disney Vacation Club Villas: Hawaiian Snack Foods

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Amanda Adler

Staying at Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawai’i, means you’ll enjoy many of the comforts of home, including a full kitchen in the 1- and 2-bedroom Villas, as well as the breathtaking Grand Villas. Inspired by these special accommodations, and the beauty of Aulani, food blogger Jenny Flake recently created several delicious dishes that are perfect for family vacations at this magnificent resort.

Among her Aulani-inspired culinary creations were several snack items – chocolate-drizzled pineapple skewers and Hawaiian style popcorn mix – which you can discover in this video!

Below are the recipes, which you can recreate at home. Or, if you’re a Disney Vacation Club Member, these are the perfect treats to make part of your annual tradition while staying in your own Villa!
