Disney in the Pacific. If you have experienced Disney hospitality, efficiency, organisation & hospitality in any of their resort hotels then you know what to expect in this 5 star palace. An easy 20 minute late morning drive from the off site airport car hire (free shuttle buses) or a $40 taxi ride. If you are heading back to the airport for the flight home, give yourself lots of time to return the hire car & catch the shuttle bus, rush hour traffic on the H1 is bad. Aulani is Disney, from the moment you pull into the driveway you know you are in the Mouse's house. We stayed through our DVC membership & had a two bedroom suite with a sea view. Staff were superb, everything was sparkling clean, from the taps in the bathroom to the sand in the man made cove. The rooms are well laid out with big everything, big TVs, big beds, big showers, big fridge etc etc etc. Quality is everywhere & it shows in everything, this of course means you pay a little more in the bars & restaurants, just like it's Florida resorts. But like in Florida the unlimited refill cups for soft drinks & coffee are available so you won't need to be thirsty. You can do this resort without a car if you really want to, taxis are always available at the front door. The nearest big name restaurants & Walmart are in Kapolei which is about 5 miles away with the bigger shopping malls being further away in Pearl City & Honolulu. There is plenty to do in the resort either in and around the pools & lazy river or on the beach. If like me your sunbathing tolerance is a day or two before boredom sets in you will want a car to get out and explore. Excellent hotel & staff, well worth a visit if you're in that part of the world.

Beautiful Setting, but Expensive and Far from Everything

Let me start by saying we are Disney regulars, (DVC members) and have been to many of their resorts and resorts booked by RCI. Disney does have high standards and we have come to expect them at every resort we visit. Aulani is no exception to those standards but its a standout for the amount of money (points) and time it takes to stay at this resort. For the use of DVC points, the time it took to book this was 6 months out. We also used all our available points and them some to get a room for 1 week! We were in a 1 bdrm/ kitchen villa, which was very roomy. Its the same design they use at all the other resorts by Disney. If staying for any length of a week or more, we suggest a kitchen. Meals and drinks on property are very expensive and shopping at the nearest Safeway or Foodland is more reasonable. At the pool, mixed, alcoholic drinks were $15, almost $10 for a bottle of beer, w/o tip! Any paddle boards or snorkel equipment rental is crazy expensive and since your isolated on Disney property there are no other options. Transportation to and from Honolulu or the airport is another expense to alot for and again, very expensive. We found it cheaper to rent a car at the airport and DVC members self park for free in a garage. Valet is $38 per day. Excursions booked through Disney are also very pricey. You'll do better to take the time research and book your own day trips. We did book the Luau through the resort, VIP tickets were $354 for two people, the food and entertainment was actually better at the Polynesian Resort luau in Florida. Overall, a trip to Aulani is nothing less than an investment and if you insist on a Disney property and experience while in Hawaii, this is the place. If its your first time to the islands, find an accommodation more accessible to the action and more reasonable.

Great amenities and resort for the family!

I must admit, I had high expectations for this resort as I am a big Disney fan. Our trip was over Halloween, so we chose to stay here thinking there would be more celebration and activities for the holiday. While we did take part in cookie decorating (which we paid extra for) and trick-or-treating, we found the Halloween party to be geared toward very young kids and were disappointed that the resort was not decorated for Halloween other than a few pumpkins on display. That being said, we truly enjoyed our stay here and made the most of our time. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed. I mean, a lei greeting and fruit flavored water.... just what I had in mind! The pools are FABULOUS, and the lazy river is so long and winding it makes you feel like you can really relax. Our girls snorkeled (again, you pay extra for this) in Rainbow Reef, but found that to really be worth it as they saw so many fish up close and the water was much clearer than in the lagoon. The grounds are well taken care of. There were plenty of food choices, including healthy ones. The Ulu cafe had a reasonably priced sandwich on special each day - YUMMY! Also, loved the Dole Whips! The beach lagoon was crowded. The lounge chairs were super close to each other - BUT we did not have to pay extra for an umbrella. This lagoon is larger than the other ones in Ko Olina it seemed, and Disney shares the lagoon with guests from the Four Seasons. I appreciated that they offered free boogie boards you could check out and also paddle board rental. They even gave us a mini lesson on paddle boarding before we went out... My only complaint was the noise at night... We stayed in a standard room, basically a regular hotel room. That would have been fine as far as space goes (we were hardly in the room other than to sleep), but our room was also located at the end of the hallway by loud doors where apparently every single cast member must have to enter and exit. Shift change must be between 6:30 and 7am because that time was the most active. AAHHHH!@ Anyway, we tried not to let this bother us, but it did make our stay less enjoyable. I would also avoid a room anywhere near the buffet restaurant if you want a quieter stay.

Magic Hawaiian trip for kids, tips to save money

We wanted to go on a child friendly vacation to Hawaii and Aulani did not disappoint. Our kids are 5 and 9 and we were looking for a tropical location that was family friendly. We are not Disney fans per se but there is Disney characters and events you can pay extra for if you want Disney. The resort at Aulani is amazing. We splurged on a villa room that included a washer,dryer, full kitchen and sitting room area that had a pull out couch bed and murphy bed for the kids at night. Although it was more expensive than a regular room, the kitchen had a rice cooker, blender (on request), tupperwear to store leftovers, microwave, coffee maker, oven and stove. There is a BBQ on the property you can reserve also if you want to buy meat to grill. After a trip to Costco and safeway, our kitchen was stocked with breakfast items, snacks, full bar for mixing own drinks and desserts. The food in Hawaii is expensive in general at the grocery store so dinning out is also more than you would expect. We tried to eat all meals except 1 a day in our room. We even made smoothies and milkshakes in our room to help save on treat costs. We bought the resort refillable mugs at around $19 each. We were there a full week and although we don't drink soda, it more than paid for itself. You can get coffee daily, iced tea, seltzer, powerade and other non soda choices. My kids loved the kids meals at aulani. You can get a pizza at the Ulu Café and take leftovers to heat in the oven for the next day. I wasn't a huge fan of the food but I am extremely picky (no gluten or dairy). I did love the poke bowl that is only served 11:30-3pm at the Ulu café. Most dinning places on the property will make your food to your request and I did get a salad with grilled fish that I enjoyed. You can go across the street to a strip mall that has an ABC store that had sushi and a salad bar that was moderately priced. There is a pizza place called Pizza Corner my kids loved. You could also walk to the Four Seasons high end dinning a few steps away on the beach but we never did. Our room overlooked the halawia lawn which is where the luau is held. We were able to see and hear it nightly for free which was amazing. It also had a partial ocean view although we were never in our room long enough to enjoy it. There was so much for the kids to do. The lazy river was probably the place we spend the most time but the water slides, snorkeling and multiple pools were favorites. We went out to the beach where they have free boogie boards and sand toys, chairs while supplies last. We were there during low season so there was never an issue getting chairs by pool or toys. The kids also did an ipad hunt of the property at night which they loved. My kids didn't want to go to Aunties Beach house which is there free daycare but we toured it and there was so much to do there and it looked clean and supervised. We did not do any premium or paid activities other than the unlimited snorkeling at rainbow reef. If you go, go in the morning as you can use it the entire day you pay and you may want to go more than once. We paid for unlimited which is like paying for 2 days total and we used it every day, sometimes more than once. There were some free activities daily for the kids and some that you had to pay extra to do. You can view the activities on aulani's website. There was a room with family board games and DVDs that you could check out for free. My kids loved to look for geckos every morning as there were several critters you could spot before it got busy. There is a shuttle that goes to other hotels and places nearby which is free. We rented a car for one day and I was told to reserve in advance as at peak times they can be sold out. We went to the Dole Pineapple Plantation which was fun and drove up to the north shore. The beaches there can have unsafe waves and undertow so it was more of sight seeing than playing. Sadly there were no turtles out to view on our trip. To park the car was $35 a day so we returned it in the afternoon instead of paying to park it overnight. There is also a train that goes up the island that leaves twice a day but we did not ride it. Our kids loved every second of the trip. They always had an activity they could do and the resort was clean and the service was amazing. Room and bed were comfortable. We stayed 7 nights and 8 days which was a good amount of time. I would return again!
