This was our first trip to the Hawaiian Islands. We spent 5 nights at Aulani. I met someone recently who described Aulani as, "a perfect marriage between Hawaiian culture and the magic of Disney". I couldn't agree more. From the time you arrive when Auntie greets you at the door and welcomes you into her home until you leave, you feel like you part of their Hawaiian family. This feeliing is part of everyone and everything at Aulani. I am more inclined to return to a place where I feel at home, a part of a community than returning to a resort that feels like a business.
We loved floating along the lazy river, watching the sunset from the hot tub, floating in the pool and snorkeling in the lagoon. They even have their own self contained reef where kids can safely snorkel among the fish in a supervised setting. The rooms were nicely appointed. The food was fabulous but a bit pricey but we knew that before we arrived and planned ahead for it. It would be great if Disney would offer a dining plan like they do at their other resorts (Ex: Walt Disney World in Florida).
We enjoyed the Menehune Trail adventures with Auntie and the stories Uncle told by the campfire. I was surprised by the amount of Disney character interactions. It seemed like there was always a dance party or photo opp happening somewhere at Aulani.
