Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa Review

In September 2011, Disney opened its first property in Hawaii, an elaborate, full-service complex in the resort area of Ko Olina about a 40-minute drive from Waikiki on Oahu's leeward side. Years later, the resort—complete with Disney characters roaming its 21 acres—offers 359 guest rooms, including 16 suites, and 481 time-share units. But trust us, you won't be staying in your room. Aulani has four restaurants, two lounges, an enormous pool complex with a man-made snorkeling lagoon, an 18,000-square-foot luxury spa, a full-service fitness center, an entire beach to enjoy, and lessons in traditional Hawaiian crafts, hula, and storytelling. The most recent expansion project includes the Waikolohe Valley pool area with a family-friendly pool complete with misty grotto, a poolside eatery, and an adults-only pool.
