Inside the restaurant. We had our choice of tables to sit at and admire the beach view.
I love this!
We had 10am breakfast reservations for ‘Ama’Ama on Wednesday morning to celebrate Ian’s 30th birthday.
He’s wearing his Happy Birthday button!
Close up of how to say ‘Happy Birthday’ in Hawaiian!
Happy birthday, Ian!!! ❤
‘Ama ‘Ama is named after a mullet fish native to Hawaii, also known as striped mullet. The restaurant itself is meant to look like a fishing shack from the 1890’s.
Chilled POG juice!
For breakfast, you can choose from traditional breakfast favorites like eggs, waffles, bacon and pastries. Island specialties featuring fresh fish, local fruit, Portuguese sausage and other native ingredients are available daily.
All the online reviews said that breakfast was the best meal of the day served here.
I had the ‘AMA’AMA Breakfast Sandwich. Delicious!
My brother loved it!
THE DINING EXPERIENCE
Take in the enchanting sights of Ko Olina Beach as you dine at this open-air restaurant.
Style and Theme
The restaurant is named after the ‘AMA‘AMA, a local mullet fish—and it’s inspired by the fishing settlements along the leeward coast of O‘ahu that date back to the 12th century.
‘AMA‘AMA is designed to resemble a beachside house. Its spacious dining room features a thatched roof, mosaic designs, a fountain and a reflecting pool.
‘AMA‘AMA is located beside the Waikolohe Valley pool area, just steps from the beach.
Breakfast with an awesome view.

Adventures in the Animal Kingdom
Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
