We stayed at the Aulani in August, 2012, just missing the opening of the third tower. My worry is that Disney will fill the resort to the same capacity as it does the theme parks. That would be a deal breaker.
We loved the two bedroom "villa" and most of its amenities. A quick trip to the nearby Costco allowed us a respite from dining out. The restaurants were very good, typically priced for resort hotels. The Disney culture is still being instilled in the employees so service can be inconsistent, but generally, it was good to very good. The Lazy River, the pools and the beach are great. The spa was excellent, a well-designed refuge from the kids. Having the Ko Olina golf course across the street was good.
Disney will have to surmount the expectation of some folks that this is a theme park experience. They offer many on and off property experiences, but it pays to study and book before your trip.
We will go back.
