Happy Husband and father to two. We took our kids to Disney last year and can't wait to go back in 2014, hopefully during the holidays.

TBT....So I wanted to give you all a good laugh for the night. It's August, 1982, I'm 7, and I'm at Disneyland for my first time. My grandparents took me, that's my grandma in front of me. I can't believe my Grandpa took a photo of me p  More...

Hey Everyone,We just booked our first trip to Aulani in August.  We're really excited to take it all in but I'd love to get some tips or advice from any fellow Mousewait(ers) who have visited the resort before. Tell me your hidden ge  More...
@DarthTinkerbell Lives nearby, I bet she has some good tips.  Many others have visited--hopefully they will see this and chime in!  Have fun! 🌺 I just love to see everything Aulani, so pics of whatever you find interesting is great with me.  Hawaii holds a special place in my heart πŸ’– - Spoonful_O_Sugar   593.0 #320 4-23-15 10:20AM Like(3)  Reply
Thanks for the response!  You got it, I'll post tons of pics.  Hopefully my service is better on a tiny island in the middle of the pacific ocean than it is within the parks, :)   - Danierob  60.2 #4235 4-23-15 10:23AM
Oh my goodness, you will LOVE staying at the Aulani! The resort is absolutely beautiful, and the nearby beaches are perfect for lounging around, snorkeling, or even paddle boarding. My number one suggestion to you would be to make sure you have a rental car during your stay on the island. As beautiful and relaxing as the Aulani is, there is so much more to Hawaii that you need to experience. Feel free to DM me if you have any questions at all, as I'm more than happy to help. I only live about 10-15 minutes away from the Aulani, and most of my weekends are spent at the beach over there, so I just might pop in to say hi and have a shave ice while you are visiting. - DarthTinkerbell   415.2 #495 4-23-15 11:41AM Like(3)  Reply
Does public transport not go by Aulani? - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 4-23-15 12:06PM
I know there is a shuttle that will take you to and from the Aulani, but as far as I know, there is not a safe and nearby bus stop for people to get in to the Ko'Olina area.  - DarthTinkerbell  415.2 #495 4-23-15 12:12PM
Thanks @Winnie111286....Thats what we are hoping for, a relaxing vacation.  I can't wait to check out the slides and beach.  The swimming with the fish looks really cool too.  How are the rooms, not that we will be in there too much but I'm curious what your impression was of them.   - Danierob   60.2 #4235 4-24-15 9:22AM Like  Reply
Excellent everything. If you are traveling with children, they supply the life vests. They also have them for adults. My husband loves them so much he got one every morning. I have the Deluxe Studio room so I don't know what the others are like. Aulani is totally relaxing. You will love it. - Winnie111286  4103.4 #28 4-24-15 10:23AM
Thank you everyone for the tips/advice.  We can't wait for August.  I was hoping that there would be an Aulani Starbucks mug but they don't have those.  I was so bummed, a month or so after we left the parks they debuted the new mugs.  I want to add those to our collection.   - Danierob   60.2 #4235 4-24-15 2:48PM Like  Reply

I'm looking at buying an AP pass for myself and using park hoppers for rest of the family for our upcomming December trip. Does anyone else on here do that to get the discounts on the hotels and park food and merch?
If you are staying at a Resort Hotel you enjoy Extra Magic Hour. If you are staying at a Good Neighbor hotel. .. the AP is not entitled to Magic Morning.  I hope that makes sense.  - MickeyLumboCM   1127.1 #146 2-16-14 1:08PM Like(1)  Reply

Both hotels are great options. When you make the reservation you should add your AP and then you get the rate discount. You can add the tickets for the others on the reservation.  You pick them up at check in. - MickeyLumboCM  1127.1 #146 2-17-14 12:14AM
I am doing that this year for the first time. We will be making 2 visits in a calendar year which never happens.

That is a wonderful idea!  We are Vacation Club Members and always stay at one of the resort hotels, so we get early entry.  We also have access to discounted Military Tickets.  We have never thought of only buying one passport for the discounts.  I did the math and for us it will be a huge savings since we go at least twice a year! - luvthemouse   211.4 #1780 2-17-14 7:58AM Like  Reply

Yes! Best time to go in nov is after thanksgiving. However, living far away, we usually go at times when the park is "busy" anyway so we don't really know any different. My family went the day of thanksgiving and a few days after and it really wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be. The lines were typically about a little over an hour wait. Being on a tighter budget, the hotel we usually stay in is the Marriott Fairfield Inn. It is reasonably priced and is only .02 miles away. It took maybe 5 min to walk to the park. Only down fall is they don't have continental breakfast. Is you can afford a DL hotel, do it!!!

The first week of December may also be a good time. All of the decorations will be up, as well as all shows, parades and fireworks up and running, as well as extended operating hours, as well as lighter crowds compared to other parts of the holiday season (although still busy). As far as hotels, it totally depends on your wants/needs. There are several good neighbor (and non good neighbor) that are a shorter walk to the main gates than that any of the Disney properties and at a significant savings too. We have stayed at several in the area and it's hard to match the convenience, especially when you are spending all of your time at the parks. - MightyWhitey   1081.4 #156 5-8-13 1:16PM Like(1)  Reply
