Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, was the last Disney property in the world to shut its doors way back in late March of 2020. The hotel, located on the island of O’ahu in Hawaii, reopened to the public on November 1, 2020 and has been operating ever since at reduced capacity.
Besides, are there rides at Aulani?
Aulani has a pool area, nice beachfront, and an Aunty’s playhouse (activities for kids). There are no rides, no castle, no parades, a few characters walking around, tho not often. It is not like Disneyworld nor Disneyland.
Similarly one may ask, can you swim at Aulani if not a guest?
A: Sorry, Aulani does not offer a day pass. Most amenities—including the pools, beach equipment and activities—are exclusive to overnight Guests staying at Aulani. Day Guests are welcome to enjoy the dining, shopping and spa experiences offered at Aulani.
Does Aulani have a dining plan?
Aulani does offer a simple dining option. Guests who choose to enhance their vacation with the Ali Cafe Dining Plan are entitled to one dining experience including a non-specialty beverage at Ulu Cafe, a quick service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, per person, per day.
Waikolohe Stream is the highlight of Aulani–the reason to book that trip to Hawaii in the first place! That’s right, it’s the lazy river.
This is our starbucks for Java. Before a day of sightseeing we would drop in for a Cup of coffee. Plenty of parking, clean, friendly staff, plenty of seating.
You must wear an approved mask and snorkel, which are available at Rainbow Reef Rentals. Rainbow Reef has a minimum depth of 3 feet and maximum depth of 8 feet.
Dedicate at least 2 full days to enjoying and exploring Aulani. The resort offers a lot of entertainment, activities, etc., and it’s difficult to do these all in a couple of days, plus enjoy their excellent pools, hot tubs, spas, etc.
It is not a theme park, per se, but a highly themed family resort and spa where the theme is the Hawaiian Islands. … Located in Ko Olina on the southwestern coast of Oahu, Disney’s resort is far from Honolulu and the throngs that fill Waikiki’s tourist corridor. The gated vacation community is comparatively serene.
Overall: Aulani is definitely not worth the trip for the Disney experience, because there really is no Disney experience. Definitely not worth the trip for a resort stay, there are so many other properties offering more diverse and comfortable amentities in a better location for a more complete vacation.
