We were at the Aulani from 3/23 thru 3/30. The largest problemis expectations, after having been to several Disney World resorts and to Hawai several times we had high expectations of the Aulani. Disney fell short on several areas, here are my pros and cons:
Staff is very Disney like - Helpful, Friendly and extremely poliet and fun.
Room is clean, pool is clean, the grounds are clean, lazy river is very nice and the hot tub is actually hot, not just luke warm.
The beach is nice it's a manufactured beach which makes it safe and fun for all ages regardless of the weather.
Not enough chairs around pool, we searched and searched for probably 30 minutes before finding chairs that were open. They are adding more rooms and when those are finished and full the pool area will not be useable as their is currently not enough space. Even the beach is crowded. You need wrist bands to use the pool which meas thier is a line in the morning for the wrist bands which can be long.
If you are going to eat in your room the kitchen table can only comfortably fit 5. We had a 2 bedroom and there were 6 of us. 2 kids, 4 adults. We expected a little more from Disney in the kitchen- either paper coffee filters or a wire basket for the coffee maker, at least a sample of laundry detergent and a few more hangers in the closet because we stayed for a week. Overall the room was average and functional. We have been to Hawaii several times (over 6). These are the smallest balconies we have ever seen on a condo. Families cannot be out there, unless you are all standing.
