Overview

Plenty of activities to do on-site for both children and adults
Far from central Honolulu

Flanked by the white sand beaches of Ko Olina on the southwestern coast of Oahu, Aulani brings your favorite Disney characters to life amid lush Hawaiian scenery. The resort's accommodations range from standard guest rooms to three-bedroom villas and they include minifridges, Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Obviously, this resort was designed with kids in mind: Aulani invites families to take advantage of the kid-friendly pools and water play areas, as well as the resort's own snorkeling lagoon, Rainbow Reef. Should parents need some alone time, they can drop the kids off at Aunty's Beach House for supervised activities and head off to the spa for a massage or to the fairways of the Ko Olina Golf Club. Aulani receives high praise from previous guests, who describe this Disney hotel as relaxed and lovely. Still, some travelers mention that the resort's remote location may not be the best for guests looking to experience the sights of Honolulu.

The beautifully designed resort exudes island charm, and Mickey Mouse is ever-present, but in a subtle fashion.

Condé Nast Traveler

READ MORE 

The Aulani really has integrated Hawaiian culture into a soaring, contemporary complex. Down-home it isn't, but children love it and parents clearly appreciate the supervision that gives them time off.

Aulani has plenty of Mickey Mouse and friends to entertain the kids, such as a character breakfast with photo ops, but it’s also a celebration of Hawaiian culture. Disney’s 'imagineers' worked with locals to get many of the details just right, from murals and woodcarvings throughout the property that tell the story of Hawaii ...
