When you step into the Hala Kahiki Hideaway, you’ll suspect it might be a Disney Club 33 bar tucked into a secret grotto at the Polynesian Resort. I did. And I loved it.
It was intentional. Scott and Kim designed the Hideaway with the Polynesian Resort as their inspiration. It reminds them of their nuptials, which took place among family in the Bora Bora Bungalows at the resort. It reminds them of when friends gathered to celebrate their wedding and watch the fireworks across the Seven Seas Lagoon. It brings back memories of Scott and Kim’s college years of working at the Magic Kingdom, a work legacy that continued with one of their daughters. In short, the Hala Kahiki Hideaway is a place that grounds Scott and Kim’s family with memories of joy.
