The love it is all the Disney touches, the resort feel, the water slide, the lazy river, the lovely beach, etc.
The hate it is the crowds and we went during low season. For perspective, I live in Shanghai, China--24 million people--I know what crowded...More
A couple in our 50s, we stayed at Aulani for a week as DVC members. Everything at the resort is geared toward kids. We found no activities we'd enjoy as adults. The adult pool was a nice escape from the family chaos occurring elsewhere but...More
As I state in my other reviews of Disney Properties, we are a family of Disney enthusiasts, and I always allow that my opinions may be slightly biased because of it.
I first visited Hawaii in 2001, and have wanted to return ever since. I...More
This resort was an incredible experience from start to finish! We had no children with us and we enjoyed the water areas, pools, and beach. The food is wonderful. Ama Ama is truly an experience if you dine as the sun goes down. The Luau...More
Our 3y9m and 2y4 had such a fun time here. Staff are happy and welcoming. Pools are big, clean and has life guard at every corner.
Kids Club: since our kids are inseparable, we only used Aunty’s Beach House during open house (8am -9:30am). I...More
Hi, when I called to make character breakfast reservations for my family, they told me my 2 year old did not need to pay. Hope this helps. I think they still need a seat though. It’s best you call to double check

There are many water activities at this resort. A lazy river, several swimming pools, a lagoon, and a "Fish Tank" for snorkeling. Aulani is VERY DIsney oriented, so expect a lot of small children and strollers. The resort itself is very well laid out, there is an adult pool and18 and over hot tubs for grown ups. Additionally Aulani hosts many fee based (and a few free) daily activities. The Pro's are: Very well planned resort, condo options so that you can eat/drink in the room, lovely area on Oahu, shopping center across the street, possible to find quiet places on the beach if you get out early enough. Con's: Disney everywhere, food/drink options expensive, fee's for activities very high ($40 for and hour of paddle boarding), a lot of little kids and babies (crying, running and cutting people off, etc.), very crowded. As for teens, you may want to check their website and see what teen activities are available. I think it would depend on the type of teen you have, some would love this experience and some might find it "lame".
