Disney’s Aulani: A Hawaiian Dream Come True!

moanaWith the upcoming release of Disney’s newest animated masterpiece, Moana, I suspect that there will be a lot of interest in Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa.  There are a lot of folks out there who still don’t know that Disney has a wonderful vacation destination in Hawaii.  And if you’re one of those folks, don’t worry!  I’m here to help!  Since I know Moana will put Hawaii in your heart, let me share with you just a bit about the amazing vacation destination.aulani-location

To begin with, you may wonder where exactly Aulani is located.  It is
in the beautiful resort area of Ko Olina.  You would fly in to Honolulu International Airport where you can rent a car or take a cab, limousine, or shuttle to get you to the resort.
Aulani villaUpon arrival, you’ll be greeted with the same warm, friendly service that you’ve come to expect from all things Disney.  But it won’t be like checking to a Disney Parks Resort.  Aulani is it’s own, special magic.  There is truly nothing like it.  Room options are amazing!  From classic, standard rooms (382 square feet) to 1 and 2 bedroom suites, as well as 1, 2, or 3 bedroom villas, there is a room to fit every one’s accommodation needs!

Now that you’re all checked in and checked out your room, I’ll bet aulani-diningyou’re hungry, right?  With 10 options to choose from, you’re sure to find a perfect spot to fill up at.  Whether you’re looking for a relaxing, table service style meal or a quick ‘grab a bite to eat’ type of meal, Disney has you covered!  You can even enjoy a character meal at Makahiki!

Now that you’re settled in and had a bite to eat, it’s time for some fun!  Maybe you’ll take a swim at Ka Maka Grotto or maybe the little ones will go have some wet fun at Keiki Cove Splash Zone.  Or maybe you’re gonna start your vacation off with a spa treatment at Laniwai Spa.  Whatever you choose, you know it’s going to be amazing!  And it’s only the beginning of your adventure.  With special kids’ experiences as well as adult and entire family experiences, there’s tons of fun in store!
