You just can’t beat Disney!

Beautiful resort. Impeccably clean. Gorgeous grounds. Staff has been “Disney” trained and it shows. It’s just a wonderful place to stay when in Oahu. We drove through the Wakiki area one afternoon and oh my lord I’m glad we stayed in Ko Olina!!!

Disney’s Biggest & Best Resort Property.

Huntsville, Canada

This is my second stay at the Aulani resort on Oahu. Yes it’s like going home. The rooms are gigantic and have everything you need. If you are missing something they will get it to you pronto! This is not a cheap stay I can only afford it because I’m a vacation club member. It has access to a beautiful beach and has 3 or 4 pools. A lazy river winds through the pool and water park plat ground area. There are Disney characters around but not as abundant as most other Disney hotels. There are many things to do snorkeling etc. And there is rental equipment available to help you enjoy your stay. I don’t eat my main meals at the hotel and being in Hawaii I’m sure you have a car rental. There are so many food experiences off property so feel free to explore. Service is totally Disney.......Top Notch!
