This year we took a magical trip to Disney’s Aulani resort on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. Disney Aulani resort is found at Ko Olina about an hour from Honolulu on the north-west coast of Oahu.
Aulani is unmistakably Disney, whilst the decor would be 90% Hawaiian inspired and 10% classic Disney, the service, the little extra’s is what lets you know you are at a Disney resort.
From the minute you arrive, you are transported into the magical world of Disney. From Hidden Mickeys located throughout the resort, opportunities to meet your favourite Disney characters and get their autographs, Disney merchandise and other classic Disney treats.
