Our family of four spent a week at Aulani at the end of July 2014 as part of a 2 week trip to Hawaii. I've postponed this review a bit while I've collected my thoughts. I was prepared to fall in love with Aulani ... but, frankly, it was a let down. Yeah, the resort is gorgeous & the setting... More

We just spend 4 nights at the Aulani and felt compelled to write a review so travelers like myself think about other options on Oahu. IF you have spent any time in Hawaii and know the feeling and service you get when you stay at an upscale property, the Aulani will probably not be a good fit for you. I... More

After a 6 day stay in Waikiki, we decided to end our vacation with one night in Aulani. This is on the other side of Oahu and much quieter. Once we drove up to the resort, we were greeted by the valet/bell hop who asked us for our last name and advised us that our room was ready. We were... More

The only negative is that you are far from Waikiki and if you like busy city life then you will miss being downtown and so the Hawaiian Village is the best second option with kids. I did not care about being far from Waikiki and that resort is truly the best when you have kids. This is the only hotel... More

Here's the thing, we are Disney Vacation Club owners, but even if we weren't and paid retail . . . it's still worth it's weight in Gold/Platinum/Rhodium, combined. Other than Disney's standards of Customer Service which exceeds Excellent Standards, the location & accommodations are up there too. I'm not going to get into how we were placed in our room,... More

This is probably the best place you take your family to on a getaway in Hawaii, even if you live here. It certainly is the best place on Oahu. As with most Disney properties they seem to have done everything right. It is not just a place for the kids, but really designed to see that the adults get a... More

My family decided to stay at the resort for my daughter's 4th birthday and we left completely disappointed. There are so many reasons why we were unhappy but I'll start with the most important. DO NOT stay here if your children are small. Their highly talked about children's fountain and bridge is completely dangerous and there is MINIMAL adult supervision.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Disney Aulani in August 2014 and cannot wait until we can go back! As you can imagine, Disney thought and took care of everything to create a wonderful Hawaiian experience. As you arrive at the hotel, you are given a lei and given a mini-history lesson about Hawaii and the hotel. The check-in... More

Traveled this summer to Oahu with my 3 kids in their twenties and their significant others. Aulani is not just for families with young kids! We loved it. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel and rooms impeccable. The culture they've incorporated into the resort while retaining the Disney magic makes it a memorable place to stay. Also, we LOVED Oahu.... More

Our family of 4 stayed at Aulani for 5 days. We have two sons, one in college and one in high school. Even though our next stop was adventure on the Big Island, none of us wanted to leave Aulani, and all of us can’t wait to come back next year to this beautiful and amazing Resort. As we approached...
