I was seriously impressed with this hotel and its service. They have done an incredible job of making this resort feel Hawaiian with a sprinkle of Disney and TONS of magic. It is not Disney in your face and is extremely tasteful. Do yourself a favor and get the DVC (Disney Vacation Club) rooms. Check out David's Rentals who rents out points for DVC and are usually less than paying rack through the hotel or consolidator. Also, check out the Disboards and search for the Aulani views thread. It gives you a map and layout of the different room and views for each room. You can put in a request and hope for the best.
Here's the funny think about this trip...we went without our kids. We are DVC members and had points to burn. I was very worried about it not being a relaxing and romantic trip. Wrong. It was awesome, relaxing and dare I say it....peace-full. I would say couples should avoid high season. I was actually missing my babies because there were so many things they would be squealing with delight at. Aunty's Beach House looks amazing. Racks or dress up clothes and giant TV sized Ipad's with interactive games for multiple kids to play. The Disney details.
The food at the hotel was better than expected after reading reviews but after awhile it gets boring. I'm actually a bit annoyed I went in with that pre-conceived notion because I would have not thought the food was questionable at all. I think the pool menu needs some updating and definitely needs a fabulous chicken nacho and some different sandwiches. Having a room with a kitchen or even a fridge and micro will not only help your wallet but keep you sane. The dinner buffet was excellent and very reasonable for all that you get. My husband was in heaven with the all you can eat sashimi. He said it was extremely fresh and he knows sushi. The character breakfast one morning is a must. Amazing breakfast and the kids are just delighted with all the interaction and activity.
Very impressed with all the activities for the whole family from the wee ones to teenagers. The Spa is lovely. The price is steep but the experience was worth it. Complete relaxation and a wonderful massage. We will definitely be going back to this amazing resort!
