Another Great Disney Resort

toms river, new jersey

One again Disney succeeded in making another great resort. The resort kind of resembles the Polynesian and WDW. Its definitely has the Hawaiian theme. The grounds are beautiful with alot to do. The cove for swimming is absolutely beautiful with a sandy bottom and no waves. There were water slides and snorkeling area for the kids, along with quite a few places to eat. Have to try the ice cream by the beach area.

Disney never disappoints!

Barrington, Rhode Island

We stayed at Aulani for 7 nights in a one bedroom villa. So glad I booked this room. We were in HI for 13 days and having a kitchen and washer dryer really made us feel like we were at home and not a hotel. Never heard our neighbors. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Since our kids are older we were able to enjoy the lazy river and slides but call the adult pool our hangout. The beach is also great. We loved that you couldn’t put towels on chairs until 8 am! This was very much appreciated! Our room had everything we needed with almost two bathrooms it was easy getting all of us ready after our daily adventures. Ko Olina is a central place to stay. It also is the dry side of the island so the weather was perfect everyday we were there! We went to Waikiki one day after a hike for lunch and were so glad we weren’t staying there. Highly recommend staying in Ko Olina. Rent a car and explore the island from there! Definitely a lot of families and young kids, but we were happy with the adult only pool. AMA ama was disappointing for dinner( service was not what we would have expected and one of the fish dishes was served very undercooked) . We ate off the resort mostly. There is a super target not far and later found out that Safeway and Costco will deliver to the resort for you! We only cooked breakfast and some lunches in the room. Lunch and breakfast options were great at Aulani. We did not visit the buffet during our stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel. We have two kids a boy (15)and girl (18) and we love that Disney had a pull out sofa bed and a separate pull out. This was a great space for our family. I would stay here again!
