Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa

preschoolears: Aulani review and info

Aloha! No, I’m not in Hawaii, but rather I am dreaming of beautiful Hawaii while the snow is melting at my house!

About a year and a half ago, Disney Aulani Resort & Spa opened on the island of O’ahu in Hawaii. This inclusive family-friendly resort has many amazing features and experiences for everyone, as well as beautiful pools and beaches. Our family hasn’t had the opportunity to visit this resort, but recently one of Preschoolears’ Parent Panel members and her family stayed at Aulani. I had the pleasure of interviewing her about their trip and she shared with me her thoughts as well as some wonderful photos for you to enjoy. Preschoolears also has a new page devoted to the Disney beach resorts including new ratings and reviews on Aulani, for families to plan their own trip to Hawaii Disney-style!

preschoolears: Aulani

Rhonda G. is a Preschoolears Parent Panel member, and also an avid Disney fan! Her family visits Disney World at least once a year, and they are also members of the Disney Vacation Club. She has two kiddos age 9 and 5, who keep her very busy!

preschoolears: Aulani Mickey

PS Ears: When did your family visit Disney’s Aulani resort?
Rhonda: We were at Aulani in July of 2012.

PS Ears: On this trip, you were able to stay in a DVC 1-bedroom villa at Aulani. What did you like or dislike about the hotel and the room?
Rhonda: We were amazed at the accommodations! It was very nice and clean. The kitchen was all stainless steel appliances and we were thrilled with how big it was. It was also fun to find the hidden mickeys in all of the decorations around the room.

PS Ears: What was one of the things your family enjoyed together?
Rhonda: The Water Park!! The slides were a big hit! We also enjoyed the snow cones at Papalua Shave Ice.

PS Ears: What was one of your kid’s favorite things they got to do?
Rhonda: Water slides! and Aunty’s Beach House was terrific!

PS Ears: What age of kids would you recommend to best enjoy the Aulani resort?
Rhonda: Our kids were ages 4 and 8 and they had a blast. They are always asking when can we go back. I would say there is something there for all ages but to get the most out of the resort, I would make sure that your child is old enough to stay at Aunty’s Beach House, which is for ages 3-12.

PS Ears: For families thinking about or planning to book a trip to Disney’s Aulani, what advice would you give them?
Rhonda: Stay in the 1 or 2 Bedroom Villas where there is a kitchen. Rent a rental car. Disney lets you park for free if you’re a DVC member but otherwise there is a parking fee. Go buy groceries at the local grocery store (We went to Safeway). Stock up on enough groceries to eat lunch a few days during your stay. You will save a ton of money, but still enjoy all of the great restaurants that Aulani has to offer. We even took our sandwiches out on the lawn chairs and ate by the pool one day.

Thanks Rhonda for sharing your insights and experiences at Aulani!
