"Perfect for families!"
Be sure to check out the other lagoons. Stay here and take day trips to Waikiki and North Shore. Skip snorkling at this resort and go to Sharks Cove instead. Perfect way to spend a day, but gets crowded and traffic can be bad after dark so be prepared. Breakfast with the characters is expensive, but still worth it if you have kids. They will love it. […] Places to eat...Just tacos is good, checkout the ABC Market as they have salads and sandwiches. If you have a car, go to Kapolei (closest town). Wallmarts, Starbuck, and other local places to shop and eat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Aulani :D"
Absolutly loved Aulani! A great place for Honeymooners such as ourselves and for anyone with children. Great amenities and extremely wonderful staff. Everything was so convenient and at a great price. You really didnt need to leave the resort as there is several beach access' and pools within the resort, shopping avaliable as well as several food places […] ranging in price. Did not seem overwhelming with the amount of people enjoying their vacations as well. Lots of room and chairs within the pool areas and on the beach. Very beautiful rooms and although we had a standard view, it was amazing! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Horrible place to stay with your family!!!!"
I went to this hotel since it was supposed to be family oriented, however I found the staff and property were not family friendly at all. This is just a feeling you get from the start but then were followed by actions, the worst of which was their check out policy. I understand that their check out is at 11 am, but if you book an excursion through their […] activity desk that returns to the hotel at 12 and you are travelling with 2 kids one of whom is 1 YO, you would expect some leniency for 1 hour extension, however, they will lie to you and tell you that they are fully booked on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I find that very hard to believe that all the rooms were booked and that they couldn't give a 1 hour extension. So, what they make you do is checkout, check in your bags and than after returning from an excursion take your bags out, go to a separate lounge and get your kids ready all for 1 hour. hate this place!!!

"More than just for families"
While this is a Disney resort and clearly caters to families, the spa facilities for singles and couple are outstanding. I found the resort to be a great as a single adult enjoying a relaxing long weekend. My only suggestion would be to work on the food in the high end restaurant, which wasn't quite up to the standard I expected from based on the rest […] of my time there. The staff, however, were superb. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Memories are forever - Disney resort MAGICAL!"
Staff was VERY VERY FRIENDLY. Resort is Beautiful - Lots of Amenities Every morning(6am) I sat by the lagoon and watched the ocean waves. Pools are Great. only problem is it is 30 miles from airport, so cab is expensive. You need to rent a car to go anywhere, but it is a must.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mahalo Aulani! :)"
The hotel is fantastic!! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we had an amazing time! A 40 minute drive away from the airport and having a rental car is a must to explore the rest of the island! Parking at the resort is the only 'downfall'; as you have to pay a $35 a night fee :/ but all in all I had no regrets booking this hotel!! It […] was like a condo and the amenities are excellent!!

Hotel was great. Very little construction on the weekend. More on the weekdays. Overall great time, staff really lives up to its Disney reputation for great customer service. Ocean view is the way to go. Dont skimp on view. Plenty of food nearby if you want a change of pace from the onsite dining. Teenage daughter loved the place. Aloha!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun Hotel for Family - Disappointing Food Choices"
Great place for kids, pool, lazy river and slides were big hits for my boys! Downside: Beds were not comfortable, Ama Ama Restaurant food (where we ate mostly everyday for breakfast) served too salty, everything except the blah pancakes were just so salty! Sadly the chicken tenders, fries and shaved ice were the best which my boys opted to eat many […] times, so not healthy - I know. My husband and I also noticed that some of the employees may need additional training. it us more than 30 minutes to check in and once we finally got to our room and waited for about 20 minutes, we had to call bell hop (twice!) to find out when they were planning to bring our luggages up to our room considering they've had since we arrived! We were definitely expecting 5 stars service and experience, specially for the price that we paid for, too bad it was not the case. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We really had a great time there. Unfortunately we only stayed there for a night, but we would love to stay there for at least 3 daysour bags next time we come to Oahu. One thing to note was they let us check in early at around 10am, which was very fantastic, but we were unable to get our luggage till around 1pm, although we asked for our bags a couple […] of times.

Great family vacation. Restaurant choices are limited but it's Disney, you don't stay here for a five star dining experience. Next time you take a Hawaiian vacation, surprise your family by going to Aulani without telling them where you are staying. Make you sure you record their reaction.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for families."
The hotel was great! Perfect time for kids and adults. Food is very costly but, there are plenty of other restaurants around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful family vacation!"
The hotel, staff, and amenities are superb! So much for kids to do, there were activities throughout the day and it wasn't too crowded. The only negative thing I have to say is that the food options are limited and expensive. But I would highly recommend this to any family that loves Disney, Hawaii, and for children from ages 3-15yo.Genuine Expedia guest review

"An Unforgettable Aulani experience!"
My family's experience at Aulani was outstanding! We received some of the best service in the world. All of the staff were kind and friendly. The restaurant at the resort "Ama Ama" was one of the most delicious restaurants I have ever ate at. Imagine having dinner overlooking the beautiful Hawaiian beach, there is nothing better. The room was large […] and very welcoming. The activities at the resort were fun and can be enjoyed by almost everyone! My family will never forget the pool party with Mickey and his friends. The pools and hot tubs were fanastic. The two slides available were filled with unexpected twists and turns. Aulani also has the first teen spa for the older kids to enjoy. The adult spa is also enjoyed by many to relax. Staying atthe Aulani resort is an amazing experience that will be an unforgettable for everyone! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel room is kind of small but overall kids love to stay in this resort, it's beautiful and relax. Kids love the water park, they go every day,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun for all at Aulani."
Our stay at Aulani was amazing! We really enjoyed the daily events the resort had to offer...from Yoga in the morning for mom, to sailing together with the entire family right off the beach. There is plenty to do at the hotel and we enjoyed days relaxing on the beach, lounging on the lazy river, slipping down the waterslides, dancing with Disney characters […] by the pool, and eating at all the restaurants on site. There's something to do for everyone - whether you travel with kids or just the adults that still love the Disney magic. The staff was friendly and always available; they met every need. We booked our hiking trip and luau right in the hotel and we had a hotel representative with us to enhance the experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was beautiful, we took the standard view option and could still see the ocean from our balcony. The staff was over the top friendly, they greated us on arrival with leis, walked us to the front desk, and made sure we had fresh pineapple water in hand. The pools were each unique and the lazy river was one of the most relaxing/fun thing to do […] with the water slide that started it. The volcano slide was my boyfriend's favorite. Whenever the need to sit on the beach arose, you simply walked from the pools to the ocean. The staff was never far, offering free umbrellas and beach games to play. The snorkeling in the cove was amazing! The snorkeling at the rainbow reef was $20 for a day or $40 for a length of stay pass. Every time we snorkeled there we saw something else, this is a must!! The only thing that was a little pricey was the parking. It is $35/night whether you valet or self park, when we go back, we probably will not rent a car because of it. Alamo rent a car is located at the hotel so if you do decide you need a car, they have them there! Other than that, this hotel was worth every penny and we will be going back! Beware of the sticker shock of the buffet, the buffet was $100 for the two of us. The bars by the pool have reasonably priced food that was AMAZING! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice but too pricey!"
Great, luxorious hotel, very nice beach compared to other hotels in the area, kids friendly (well.. its disney!). Amazing facilities and service. Kids have a blast with the volcano slide and lazy river, for sure. Really nice, lagoon beach but weirdly the umbrellas were not free. Snorkeling pool for beginners/non-swimmers is very nice. They had a great […] cultural show one night. There were so many events & things to do! It was a bit too crowded on sat & sun but was alright the other days. It didn't feel very spacious for a 5 star hotel though.. most of the open area is filled with rows & rows of lounge chairs! Food choice isn't great for vegitarians. We stayed at Turtle bay for a few days before coming to Aulani and didn't have such problem with food. Turtle bay is an amazing hotel at amazing location by the way. It was a totally different experience but we loved both the hotels and had great time at both the places. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We absolutely loved this hotel. It was beautiful! You really do not need to leave to seek other entertainment. It has 3 or 4 pools, water slides, lazy river, snorkeling and its own beach area. It is a hotel for all ages. The beach area was beautiful, clean and only used by persons staying in the Disney resort. They had a Disney Character restaurant […] but it was booked for our whole stay, so definitely book that before you arrive. There are a few things I would like to see different. The restaurants are very expensive. We ate there once a day and sought out other restaurants in the area. I would have also liked to have seen more servers around the pool and beach area.

"Loved Aulani, GREAT hotel, worth 5-stars."
Disney's attention to detail blew me away. It was not kiddie-like, it was sophisticated. The grounds, lobby, kids lobby, common rooms, lazy river, slides, hot tubs, and pool were wonderful. The interactive game the kids play was totally cool. The staff was always friendly, from the valet, to housekeeping, to front desk. There was so much to do and see […] on the property and the beach, we found ourselves hurrying around Oahu to get back to Aulani. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"This hotel gets families"
We went with 4 adults and 4 children (3-5 year olds). This was the best family destination we've ever been to. Disney understands what families are looking for and does an exceptional job on service. There are a lot of things to do with kids. We were there for 5 days and not a minute went by where there wasn't some kind of activity (agendas are provided […] daily). I loved the fact that it wasn't "too Disney". My only negative was the food was so/so. For what it's worth, the price was in line with other hawaii hotels and spent. We would go back in a heartbeat.

"An amazing resort for everyone, not just families"
This resort was amazing. We were greeted with leis and upon checkin given a free room upgrade to a partial ocean view which was incredible. Even though this hotel is a Disney resort, you have to look to find the Disney touches. They do have character photos through out each day but only in one area of the resort and it's not forced on you. Depending […] on what type of experience you are wanting, you can experience as much or as little of Disney as you want. Whether you are traveling with a family or not this resort has plenty of things to offer including free entertainment at night - a luau show with out the dinner, movies under the stars, musicians etc. The resort has several pools and hot tubs along with a water playground, 2 water slides and a lazy river. For an additional fee you can pet/feed stingrays or snorkel with fish. When you check in each day at the pool to get your pool bracelet and towels, you can also check out a free life jacket for children but they have a limited amount so get one early in the day. The resort has several restaurants including a snack store and ice cream/snow cone shop. Across the street there is a market (by ABC) that has made to order items along with already made cold and hot items and most groceries you would need. There are also a couple of other restaurants and an ice cream shop. At the resort you can order items to go at One Paddle Two Paddle or at the bar and take the meal to eat anywhere on the resort including to the shows at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"All in all"
There are quite a few things that I could say about my experience, which started 24 hrs ahead of our arrival. I called for information on what might the resort have to offer for a birthday guest and see if I could set up some little extra things for my son. hence the reason for choosing Aulani. The person that I spoke to wasn't very informative and […] made me feel like I was bothering her. I asked to be transfered to someone who could help me arrange a spa appointment, that went well. Although, I wasn't truly satisfied with the first person I spoke to and her lack of knowledge of things that I could have done to add or make it a little more special. The arrival was just heart warning, the first young lady that greeted us was just a darling and she was very informative about the property. Then, the person that registered us was also informative and I did mention to her about my phone call the day prior. She apologized and took the time to inform me of all the little extra things there were. All in all it was a nice experience and my son enjoyed his spa massage and treatment. Although I know now having been there that there is a lot more to offer. Our stay was so short that we couldn't fully enjoy all the other wonderful things about the property.

"Disney Aulani - great experience"
From the moment you arrive the staff is exceptional. The staff new our names throughout our visit as we interacted with them. The hotel has a lot to offer and we only left the resort one night for dinner in Waikiki. The beach/lagoon is very clean, safe and offers other activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking. Aunty's Beach House provides free […] on-site daycare and our 9 yr old loved it. She cried for 30 min when we checked out and drove away. It made a lasting impression on her. We come to Hawaii every year and will always stay at Disney Aulani. It was a great experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"MLK weekend at Aulani"
Pros: all of the staff are very friendly and helpful, 5 stars! we asked for a microwave in our room and it was quickly brought up within 15 min of check-in, for no charge and came with paper plates, bowls, plastic utensils and a roll of paper towels! . in room mini fridge- very convenient to hold our bottled water we bought at target before checking […] in, along with some milk for cereal and other snacks. our son was happy and comfortable on the sofa bed, he has had uncomfortable ones at other hotels but he really liked this one. the food quality at One Paddle, Two Paddle (quick service at pool) was pretty good, a little pricey. The pools, slides are nice and fun, The jacuzzis are very nice, but lots of kids in them with snorkels! beach is tranquil, sandy, great for little ones, surprised to see a turtle while kayaking. pools open later, great for my son :) The valet people were very quick and helpful, same price as self park, worth the $1 tip! cons: the staff at beach rentals did not help us get kayak in to shore when done, also you must stay in the lagoon which is not that large and is boring after about 10 minutes!! The lagoon is ok to snorkel in, the visibility is not good from lots of sand being stirred up, but if you swim out to the rocky areas, there were a good variety of fish and few friendly turtles parking fee per night is too much! no movies on demand in room! no Pizza for kids?! our fridge wouldnt stay cold Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just Got Back!"
The Aulani is on a huge property shared with other hotels and Paradise Cove as well so if you drive it can be tricky. No signs to tell you that you have reached the Aulani, just marked Ko'Olina at entrance. The hotel is still new and very well maintained. There are daily schedules provided to tell you each day's events. If you miss a Meet n Greet with […] a character, don't worry they have them everyday. The restaurants are very overpriced, but the ABC store saved our trip. You can walk to the market across from the property where you will find good affordable food. The breakfast buffet at the Makahiki was very worthwhile. Good food and this is your only chance to spend quality time with Disney characters. Check your schedule for Uncle's Hui, this is free and very fun. It has great crafts, a variety show and dance party with characters. A lot went into this production. The only thing that would have made things more exciting for my young daughter would have been some Disney Princesses. The outdoor movie is really great if you catch one you like, only on Tues. & Fri. nights. This resort is best for tweens or children who can be without their parents. My daughter was too young to take advantage of many activities, like Auntie's Beach house since parents can not stay. But overall it was a very pleasant experience. Great pool and private beach. Definitely recommend for families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great vaca! All you need is there at the resort...except for food. The restaurants there are fantastic, but be prepared to pay. There is a to go place, One Paddle, Two Paddle, which for a resort offers good food for fair price. The car rental is a bit pricey, but again, all you need is there at the resort. Aunty's (daycare) is very impressive. No wonder […] kids don't want to leave. This resort is ideal for toddlers and up. Extremely friendly staff. Keep the lei on and you'll get the extra attn. Housecleaning was a lil short on the service. Had to call them for service.Still 5 stars! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great alternative to Waikiki"
The Ko'Olina area is nicely developed and has a much more relaxed feeling than Waikiki. Lots of room on the beach beside the Aulani Resort. It was awesome in regards to being a full service family resort, but I would go back with just my Wife in a heartbeat. The pools and dining options were great, and with Disney, there was some type of entertainment […] going on every couple of hours (i.e. character visits, musical performers, scavenger hunts, etc). Well done, Disney! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

the best experience ever, from valet to check in to food and beverage and the spa and outdoor facilties are 10 out of 10. Alot was included in the $35 hotel surcharge. Will return to this resort everytime we visit Ohau.Genuine Expedia guest review
My first impression of the hotel was that it was absolutely amazing and huge. My husband & I stayed with our two children (8 months & 3 years) for 2 nights. I had been so excited to go here but there were a couple of things that disappointed me: 1 - To meet the Disney characters you have 2 choices, a breakfast meet & greet (twice the price of the regular […] breakfast), or 3 meet and greet sessions throughout the day with only one or two characters at each session. 2 - I expected the resort to have a proper Disney store but they didn't have any of the merchandise from the regular Disney Stores. There were a choice of a handful of characters & they were all dresses in their Hawaiian clothes - which is cool, but more characters and merchandise would have be nice. These things didn't affect my judgement of the hotel as they were only my assumptions. It rained on/off the whole day we were there & it was too cold to take our youngest in the pool so I had to entertain myself with an 8 month old. I found that there was not a lot for me to do once I had looked through the one big store they had. My husband & 3 year old had an awesome time in the pools & when we swapped so I could swim I had a fantastic time too. The hotel was great for children but it is very expensive.

hotel was great. Food is limited and expensive. A few other resturants in area. Staff was truly Disney standard. Aside from lisa Marie down at the beach.

No of which were true because no other staff member knew about the so called […] rules she made up. We didn't let her ruin our ay though, just felt sorry for her.

今回は、一泊の予定だったのでめいいっぱいホテルでの時間を充実させたいと思っていました。 ホテルには９時３０分頃につきましたが、ラウンジで着替えをしてすぐにプールに入ることができました。流れるプールやスライダー。一日中いてもあきません。ライフガードの方が、たくさんいて見守ってくださっているので本当に安心です。突然グーフィーがプールにやってきたり、色んなキャラクターが代わる代わる出てきてくれて写真もいっぱい撮れました。チェックアウト後もラウンジが使えるので２日間めいいっぱいホテルの中で遊べて大満足でした。スターライトフイは、ショーの最後にキャラクター達が出てきてみんなで一緒に踊ったり子ども達も参加できたりと必見です。一泊だったので数あるプログラムには参加できなかったけど十分に楽しめました。ワイキ […] キとはまたぜんぜん違って離島にきたみたいな雰囲気です。子どもも、またアウラニディズニーに泊まりたいといっています。次も、ぜひ訪れたいと思います。 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

ワイキキの前に2泊3日初めて泊まりました。レストランやプールやショーなどでたくさんミッキー・ミニー達に近距離で会えて、写真やハグ・キスもしてくれて最高に興奮・感動しました！写真はあとで買うことも出来、記念に購入しましたが少し高いです（＄32か＄35）。 スタッフの対応は全体的には悪くないですが、日本のホテル・レストラン、TDL・TDSのレベルではありません。いかに日本が素晴らしいのか実感します。チェックインの対応をしてくれた日本人女性は、無表情でマニュアルをただ話している感じでとても残念でした。最初のホテルの印象なだけに笑顔は大切だと思います。Genuine Expedia guest review
