My mom, kids, and I visited Aulani the week before Thanksgiving. My kids and I had never been to Hawaii before, and visiting at this time was a splurge but worth it! It was busy because there were a lot of families there being Thanksgiving break, but it didn't feel overwhelmingly crowded. The kids and I spent most of our... More

We've had good success staying at Disney properties and this was no exception. We visited this resort three two years ago and it was a great experience too. Upon our arrival our car was greeted by friendly, helpful valets. Typically one is given leis and something cold to drink. They missed us here this time - not sure why. They... More

We spent Spring Break 2014 on Oahu, splitting our time between the Aulani and a vacation rental in Lanikai. There are a lot of pluses to staying in a resort like Aulani, most of which are obvious. The property is lovely, the rooms/suites beautifully appointed. The lagoon provides safe swimming for young kids, SUP and kayaks, but no boogie boarding.... More

We came here with a friend who had a son our same age. We had a two bedroom ocean facing apartment which was great. One bedroom was the master with a soaking tub, king bed and private balcony. The second was a regular room with two queen beds and a shared balcony with the living room. The living room was... More

I was very impressed by the Aulani Resort on Oahu. I consider myself a Disney veteran (having worked there myself at an Orlando resort & staying at many properties... Grand Californian, Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel, Grand Floridian, Polynesian... just to name a few) and also to know quite a bit about the hotel & resorts on Oahu, having lived there... More

We have done a Disney cruise and found it just way to much Disney for us. We went to Aulani and it was perfect. If you wanted to search out the Disney it was all there, if you wanted to feel like you were at a 5 star resort not associated with Disney, it was there. We went during Thanksgiving... More

This is an ok resort. It is built up and advertised to be really big and secluded. All pictures cut out the giant skyscraper resort right next door. The building itself seems small compared to other Disney resorts such as Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom Lodge. The pool area is also quite small, there are lots of options but its... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time. I love knowing that when we stay at Disney we will get clean consistent service. We spent 2 weeks between Maui and Oahu in a variety of places. I don't think there is anything on Oahu that compares to Aulani for kid-friendliness. This is a great use of DVC for... More

My husband and I are new time share owners at the Aulani and we were not disappointed! From the moment we checked in with our personal cast member to the day we checked out the customer service was phenomenal!! We did not have any small children or children with us for that matter. The resort is quite adult, not just... More

First of all they greeted my wife with a lei. She felt like a million bucks and though it cost me a pretty penny for our two night stay because of the ocean view it was all worth it (we had a seven night reservation at Hilton Hawaiian village). We had dinner at their buffet and the waiter was great... More
