Expert Review

Opened in August 2011, this Disney Resort is a lot more Hawaii than Disney in its design, decor, and furnishings, although you will still see Mickey and friends. The Aulani is located 24 miles east of Honlulu and is part of the Ko Olina Resort Community, where it shares a man-made lagoon with the adjacent JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa. The 21-acre Aulani has 359 hotel rooms and 460 time share units. A great family option, there are plenty of activities to keep kids and adults happy, including a large pool complex with lazy river and an 18,000-square-foot spa. On the property, guests have the choice of dining at a full-service restaurant, a buffet eatery, two lounges, and two pool-side "shacks" that serve drinks and pūpū's. Consider making dining reservations in advance of your trip to avoid waiting at the resort’s restaurants.
