Character brunch was wonderful!
Too expensive to stay here, but since we were traveling w. my 16 month old granddaughter, I made reservations for the 11 AM breakfast/brunch. We were so awed, and we've been to Disneyworld before. "Auntie" was wonderful and welcoming to all the children singing and dancing to the Hawaiian songs; the characters were excellent in their tropical outfits and visited each table. The koi pond was so inviting, my granddaughter wanted to jump in. No pressure to buy the professional photos was a plus. They do have a good amount of Japanese food and the signs are in Japanese. There are 4 lagoons nearby and we were allowed to walk through the property and linger to get to the lagoons. Our parking was comped for the whole day, which was a money saver. The Aloha attitude was abundant here. (Helpful -there is a small free parking lot near the first lagoon but it probably fills up early).
Excellent resort, could use more food options.
Excellent resort. The staff was very friendly and the grounds very clean. Our one-bedroom was wonderful and clean. The resort really caters to its Japanese visitors first and American visitors second. There seem to be no European or South American guests. The resort was under construction when we were visiting. Aulani could use more dining options. We ended up at Monkey Pod for three meals because nothing was available at the resort. You also have to go outside for every dining option and beverage refills. Rent a car to explore the Island.
You just can’t beat Disney!
Beautiful resort. Impeccably clean. Gorgeous grounds. Staff has been “Disney” trained and it shows. It’s just a wonderful place to stay when in Oahu. We drove through the Wakiki area one afternoon and oh my lord I’m glad we stayed in Ko Olina!!!
Disney’s Biggest & Best Resort Property.
This is my second stay at the Aulani resort on Oahu. Yes it’s like going home. The rooms are gigantic and have everything you need. If you are missing something they will get it to you pronto! This is not a cheap stay I can only afford it because I’m a vacation club member. It has access to a beautiful beach and has 3 or 4 pools. A lazy river winds through the pool and water park plat ground area. There are Disney characters around but not as abundant as most other Disney hotels. There are many things to do snorkeling etc. And there is rental equipment available to help you enjoy your stay. I don’t eat my main meals at the hotel and being in Hawaii I’m sure you have a car rental. There are so many food experiences off property so feel free to explore. Service is totally Disney.......Top Notch!
While disney is always a top notch choice , there are a few things that I did not like , the overwhelming Sale , sale ,Sale of Disney Vacation club is a bit in your face , also I do not feel the discount offered for the "under construction " portion of the resort seemed to offset the noise, and finally standing in line for the biggest water slide may need a bathroom as the line lasts long enough people are just peeing on the stairs ..... yuck
