This is a fantastic, incredible family resort that is nothing less than magical. The staff goes over and above to make all the kids have magical vacations. The kids club and activities is awesome for all ages. The pools and beaches are fantastic. The rooms are spacious and clean. We loved our vacation here and the cost is certainly worth it. Be sure to book dinners and breakfasts one month before your trip. The pool side restaurants was great. The main restaurant was good for the character breakfast but the dinner was very bad (bland and uninspired food). The cafe was nice for a quick breakfast or snack. We loved the restaurants off the property - especially Roys which is a short walk. Overall we can't wait to come back. Outstanding place

Hotel's Favorite
I came from another hotel, and was hoping and praying we could check in early and we could!!! We arrived around noon. I'm sure it's usually based on availability. Our room was easy to find, and it's like everyone from housekeeping welcomed us as soon as we arrived. We stayed in a garden view room, which wasn't as pricey as the other rooms, but it was still nice!! We had a king bed and a couch seating area that folded open to a bed. There was a fridge, which I loved. And there was a safe in the closet, but I never figured out how it worked. I loved having a balcony. The door's a bit heavy, but when I got it open it was nice to just stand there and feel the warm breeze. You can even see part of the lagoon. We ate at several restaurants. Off the Hook was nice pool/beachside casual sit down dining. Ulu cafe was good grab and go stuff, but their hot items were really good! I had a smoked salmon quiche for breakfast once. Deeelish! On my birthday, we had reservations for Makahiki that's now a sit down 3 course pre-fixe dinner. I kinda miss when it was a buffet, but this was pretty good too. The ribeye was cooked to perfection, and the manager made a special trip to our table to make sure everything was cooked to our liking and to wish me a happy birthday. If you're having a day at the pool, you go to one of the stands to get your wristband for the day, but you do have to show your key card. Pool chairs are first come, first served. But make sure you stay active on your chair because people assume you've left already. As a childless adult, I thought there would be kids everywhere running and screaming, but it really wasn't too bad at all. There were some groups that were just adults. We also went snorkeling in their reef. It's $25 for the day or $45 for your entire stay. It's salt water. There's lots of fish, but my life vest kept deflating whenever I touched the mouthpiece. If you love swimming with fishes all day every day, then the entire stay might be worth it. But to be honest, one day just for 1-2 hours was fine for us. There are certain activities that are included, some that are a charge. Activities fill quickly, so it's best to a have a plan as soon as you can. I tried the ukulele class. But I have some basic skills, so this class is good for families who have never done this before. The class was a bit too easy for me, and I thought the teacher, Drew, even though was a good ukulele player, he was kinda full of himself. I kinda regret not trying the ultra bougie restaurant, Ama Ama. Maybe next time. I was so impressed with all the entertainment they had there. There was a great poolside story time that had one man narrating and some dancers acting out the story. It was really cool. I also enjoyed the live performers at the cocktail lounges and outside the Ama Ama restaurant. Even though there was a "room occupied" sign on the door, housekeeping still snuck in every day to remove garbage. That's ok. They're just doing their job. When it's check out time, you can just leave. I almost always have to go to the front desk to check out, so it felt weird to just leave. My ONLY Aulani gripe, we had to swipe our keycards an average of 10 times to open the door, and that is not an exaggeration. Other than that, everything was great. We left feeling happy and relaxed. Aulani does not disappoint when it comes to quality, and that Aloha spirit. One cast member said, "Welcome home" and I answered, "Someday this will be my home!"

The only thing going for them is the natural beauty of Hawaii. The prices are exorbitant. They are nazis about the towels. They clean your room/provide linen service ONCE for a 9-day stay. No more leis when you arrive. No water. Disney Vacation Club members should at least get a couple extra towels for the price they pay!! They nickel and dime the entire experience.

My main purpose for writing this review is to say how wonderful Vergie, the room cleaner is. She is so sweet and so helpful. I feel honored to have met her today and for her help! Now for my visit so far. We have been here since Monday, March 20th. We live on Oahu and so my husband has been working while my three kids and I have been enjoying the resort. I have felt all of the employees I have run into have been extremely pleasant. We have had no trouble with getting to where we needed. We were sat immediately at "Off The Hook" when we went to have brunch at 10:00am. Enjoyed our waitress and the other servers were very friendly. We ate dinner during our reservation at Makahiki, which yet again, was wonderful and yet again the people were friendly and wonderful. Walking around the resort felt clean and beautiful. We did the scavenger hunt which was a lot of fun and my kids enjoyed. I loved the sound effects and special things that popped up when you found a location. The dole whip is fantastic and after one I quickly got addicted and the shaved ice with the mickey ears are a very cute touch. My kids loved it! Overall it has been a pleasant experience for us! I feel like it has to be said that, I might suggest if you want to go somewhere where you need adult only space and do not want to hear kids, you probably should not go to a Disney Resort. This is Hawaii, and there are a ridiculous amount of resorts and areas you can go where you do not have to deal with kids. But Disney is going to have kids lol.

This was the most disappointing resort experience I’ve ever had. We paid almost $1k/ night. The place is way too crowded, the service is mediocre at best and the food is a 6/10. I have no idea why people come here. Never coming back under any circumstances. There are a dozen other resorts in Hawaii that are FAR better and cheaper than this place. We nicknamed it “expensive great wolf lodge”. That’s all it is…

We were incredibly disappointed with our recent stay at the Aulani Disney resort, which was made all the worse by the fact that we had traveled so far based on the glowing reviews. Unfortunately, our experience was far from what we were expecting. The late 4pm check-in was stressful enough, but the lack of seating spaces made it even worse. The staff, who appeared to be stressed out themselves, left us feeling unwelcome and added to our already mounting frustration. Despite the high expectations we had from the reviews, we were met with overcrowded areas throughout the resort, with no comfortable place to relax and enjoy the property. We were shocked to find that by noon on a Sunday, the resort had run out of towels and remained unprepared for two hours. This was not the luxury experience we had anticipated and left us feeling very disappointed. To make matters worse, an alarm clock in our room went off at 6am, which completely shattered our sleep and that of our toddler. Overall, we were extremely let down by our stay at the Aulani Disney resort. The overwhelming and overcapacity environment made it impossible for us to enjoy any aspect of the resort, despite having traveled so far with high expectations based on reviews. We do not recommend this resort to anyone seeking a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

Our family of five from Texas and Oklahoma visited Oahu and the Big Island for Spring Break! Aulani has been a bucket list item of mine for years and it did not disappoint!!! The rooms were a little smaller than what I thought they would be. I also thought we had booked two - two double bed rooms but when we got to our rooms they each had 1 queen bed and a sleeper sofa. The rooms were super clean, nice comfortable beds and nice thick towels! We also had daily housekeeping which was a nice surprise as most hotels still do not offer daily housekeeping post-covid!! The view from our lanais was absolutely beautiful (deluxe ocean view rooms)!! I could have sat out there forever and in fact did sit out there one morning doing some Bible study while my daughter took grandsons swimming!! We fully took advantage of the many daily activities Aulani has to offer: Animation Drawing (3 times), Ukulele Lessons (2 times), Rainbow Reef Fish Feeding, Pin Trading, Maka’ika’i The Culture through Nature Tour, Maka’ika’i: The Art and Culture of Aulani Tour, The Mo’olelo Fire Pit Storytelling (2 times), and Snorkeling in the Reef!! We also completed the Menehune Scavenger Hunt! All of these activities were Amazing!! Can’t recommend enough!! I would like to give a shout out to Drew for Animation and Ukulele Lessons..he is Amazing!! We took the same classes with a different leader our 2nd day and that person was not near as good… We were all so glad we had the opportunity to meet and attend Drew’s classes! In fact, had we only had the other, I would have had to leave a negative on those particular two classes! Another shout out to Uncle Ito!! He was incredibly knowledgeable on the art and nature tours and his campfire storytelling!! I could not believe that he remembered my grandson's names at storytelling from attending one of his earlier tours! We were disappointed that the slide was down for refurbishment while we were there but still enjoyed the pool and lazy river! We also met lots of characters and loved all the photo pass opportunities! I love how the characters just roam and interact with guests!! And the beach was very nice with plenty of chairs and space!! All of the cast members were very friendly and helpful!!

We stayed in a DVC studio, which was one of the smaller DVC studios that we have stayed in. The garden view balcony was a big plus for the early morning jet lag wake ups. While we were here, there were a lot of restrictions on what was open vs not open due to covid; Aunties Beach House was closed, the outdoor grills were closed, there were also very limited activities for kids due to Covid restrictions. Lining up to get fish feeding tickets felt like the Hunger Games. The pool is amazing, your kids probably won’t want to leave the hotel. But the pool area is also not as secure as other Disney pools, e.g. the Beach Club in Disney World. There were definitely some locals crashing sans wristbands. Also beware of the ratty looking mongoose near the pool- they will steal your food and look like they are covered in disease.

My wife and I are dvc members and decided to visit Aulani for the first time. We were not disappointed. We had a beach view room on the 15th floor that gave us spectacular view of the ocean and the pool area. The room was spacious and comfortable with enough storage areas for our stuff. The pool areas had enough space for families and couples to enjoy themselves without feeling crowded. The beach had more than enough beach chairs that you did not need to rush down first thing in the morning to reserve a spot. There are a number of other resorts in the area so there was choice of other restaurants to choose from for suppers. There was also a walking path that connected all the resorts and the marina where a number of people would be walking or running. Food and other items were expensive on the resort but there was a mini mall with Starbucks, mini mart and restaurants that were cheaper than the resort. (Less then 500 meters from resort) If you were there with kids, they have Disney characters galore.

After 5 great days in Waikiki we spent 6 wonderful days at Aulani. We stayed in a Deluxe Studio DVC Room which was perfect. It had a Queen Bed, Pull-Out Queen Sofa Bed, Microwave, Toaster, Mini-Fridge, Coffee Maker, Kettle, Cutlery, Dishes, everything we needed for our entire stay. The pools, lazy river, water slides, hot tubs and beach were a hit with both the kids and the adults. Spent most of our days in the water, only taking breaks for sunscreen reapplying, lunch and character pictures. Ate sit down dinners at Off The Hook, The ‘Ōlelo Room, and quick dining at Ula Cafe, all were enjoyable meals. Kids meals were big enough that our kids (age 7 and 9) would just share a meal each night. We also did the on-site Luau which was wonderful. Food was good, show was amazing, enjoyed the unlimited adult beverages. Also loved that when the Luau was over we could head right to our room, no travel needed. We also really appreciated that we were able to stay and enjoy the resort after checking out ob check out day. Our flight wasn’t until 10pm and they held our luggage and allowed us to enjoy the pool and beach all day until we had to leave. We were also able to use the Luana Lounge to freshen up before our flight home. We just had to go down at 6am to sign up for the room as they only allow 5 families during each hour in the room. Definitely an amazing trip!!!
