All right all you kids - and overgrown kids - you know who you are! Have I got a resort for you!
When you send the world's most creative hospitality company to the most beautiful corner of the earth and have them build something - you know the result will be simply amazing.
What Disney did right was to create the ultimate family resort. It's visually appealing, includes lot's of entertainment, and has a dynamite kid's program for when Dad and Dad or Mom and Mom need some down time. Activity and resort features don't just promote Mickey, they're structured to help your children learn about Hawaii. Plus Disney is famous for creating an inclusive ambiance for all.
Aulani offers both hotel rooms and condo style accommodations with kitchens (called villas) of the 1,2, and 3 bedroom variety.
And for those of you who want to indulge your inner child, Aulani offers excellent off season rates when the kids are back in school.
You can take out those mouse ears and feel right at home!
All of this isn't inexpensive. However Aulani doesn't charge extra for their kid's club, and there's plenty of entertainment - features that usually come at an extra charge at other resorts.
Cool Features for Families Traveling: Aulani has a teenager's only spa with a yogurt bar! Accommodations range from deluxe hotel rooms to 2 - bedroom "villa" suites sleeping 9 with a full kitchen and washer/dryer.
