As soon as you approach Aulani, the atmosphere of the surroundings change. It is a resort, but it is like going to another version of Disneyland, and the Aulani magic begins to start a few kilometers away from the resort. From a single lighting, to the massive hotel, everything has the power of Disney. Every corner you look at, you feel like you are on a magic island. Of course, children enjoy the world of Disney, but the atmosphere is not only for children, as parents and couples also really enjoy this beautiful tropical Disney getaway. With a taste of the aloha spirit nicely co-existing with the world of Disney, as soon as you step into the resort, you are under a magic spell.

With the taste of aloha, as well as the island décor, you will find the taste of Disney at your stay here in Aulani. From bedside Mickey Mouse lamps, to the cute Mickey Mouse shaped welcome towels, you will see signs of this iconic character, here at Disney, everywhere you go making Aulani perfect for your family getaway. Of course, if you are lucky, you get to meet Mickey’s friends as well as Mickey Mouse himself dressed in aloha shirts and summer attire. Hopefully everyone gets a chance to take a picture with the one and only Mickey Mouse, so make sure not to stay in the room all day, even though it is quite comfortable, but get out and enjoy the beautiful resort; which is right in front of your bedroom.

The pools and the resort’s own private beach

When you stay at Aulani, you will be given a wristband, which allows you to access the beautiful pools as well as the private beach. While some beaches in Hawaii have big intimidating waves that are perfect for surfers, but not so much for small children. Rest assured, because the private beach at the resort was carefully designed to minimize waves creating an environment where anyone can enjoy a peaceful and exciting time at the beach. At Rainbow Reef, you get to swim with colorful tropical fish in the only private snorkeling lagoon on the island of Oahu.

The pools in Aulani are so much fun, they are even lit up at night so you can keep playing when it is too dark to swim in the ocean. This is where there are pool parties with games, dancing, and music lead by Disney characters. You can also get on a float to go through Waikolohe Stream, and your children can play at Keiki Cove Splash Zone (keiki means children in Hawaiian).

Enjoy your family stay in Aulani, the Disney Resort

As it has been chosen as the top family hotel in 2014, Aulani Disney Resort and Spa provides everything a family could ask for right here in the tropical paradise of Hawaii. The ambiance of the resort is like a Disney movie of its own, and there are countless fun activities for children to be occupied all day. Of course, there are spas and performances, which will also be entertaining for parents. There are many dining options available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so you will always find something new during your stay.
