Planning Your Trip

There are a few things you’ll want to do when planning your trip to Aulani. First, you’ll need to decide when you want to go. The resort is open year-round, but the best time to visit is during the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October).

Next, you’ll need to start thinking about what you want to do during your stay. Aulani has a variety of activities and amenities to choose from, so you’re sure to find something to keep everyone in your family entertained.

If you’re looking for a relaxing vacation, you can spend your days swimming, sunbathing, and exploring the resort’s gardens and pools.

And if you’re looking for a little bit of everything, you can take part in one of the resort’s many activities, such as luaus, movie nights, and character meet-and-greets.

No matter what you choose to do, you’re sure to have a magical time at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.

The furnishings in all of the rooms and suites are contemporary and custom-made, and pay homage to ancient Hawaiian culture. Fabrics in earth tones were inspired by kappa, or bark cloth, known for its subtle intricacy and embossed patterns. The headboards reflect outrigger canoe shapes and butterfly joints that were used to mend precious wooden bowls. Fabrics from the 1940s and 1950s have been reinvented in the room’s pillow and bedding.

Being a true Disney resort, you will find “hidden Mickeys” in the pineapple-patterned Hawaiian quilts on the bed and Ukulele-playing Mickey Mouse lamp on the desk.
