In Hawai‘i, the traditional celebration of the harvest — or Makahiki — takes place in the fall. At Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, our resort’s casual, family-friendly restaurant is appropriately named after the season’s festival, Makahiki: The Bounty of the Islands.
As we pointed out in the “Unforgettable Details” post a few months back, the story of Makahiki season comes to life inside the restaurant through not only delectable cuisine, but also local artwork. Murals by artists Solomon Enos and Al Lagunero celebrate the spirit of the festival, while depicting Hawaiian feasting and gaming.
To continue the celebration of this season in a fun and festive way, the resort is featuring a new Disney character show called “Menehune Mischief at the Makahiki.” Available on select days, guests are invited to join Aunty, Donald Duck, Stitch and Chip & Dale as they tell the story of the Menehune — the magical “little people” of Hawai‘i!
Happy Thanksgiving from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa!

After a long production period making episodes of their hit ABC series, the cast of “The Goldbergs” — Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeff Garlin, Sean Giambrone, Hayley Orrantia, Troy Gentile, AJ Michalka and Patton Oswalt — along with Executive Producers Adam Goldberg and Doug Robinson, and their families — wanted to enjoy a little holiday magic at the Disneyland Resort.
During a full day that included Soarin’ Over California, the Jingle Cruise and lunch in New Orleans Square, we caught up with the cast in Cars Land where they saw all the sights in Radiator Springs. It was a day no one will soon forget — especially Mater!
“The Goldbergs” airs Wednesdays at 8:30PM ET/PT on ABC.

It was a moment Lt. Colonel Shannon Patrick Thompson and his family had waited years for, the chance to thank a United States postal worker from Virginia who literally kept Thompson’s family connected while he served our country in Afghanistan.

It is a favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition of mine to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Here we take a look at the Mickey Mouse balloon that paraded its way down the streets of New York City in the early 1970’s. I hope this photo brings many happy memories of your Thanksgiving traditions.
