What could be more magical than combining the beauty of Hawaii with the magic of Disney? It’s a sopping wet kind of pouring rain May day in Philadelphia and thoughts of someday visiting Disney’s new Aulani resort in Hawaii are making me smile this afternoon.
Mike and I took a 2 week Hawaiian honeymoon and we dream of bringing our children there someday to experience it. We visiting Oahu, Kauai and Maui.
The kids love looking at the photo albums from our honeymoon and Aulani in Oahu looks like the perfect family vacation spot. The weather in Hawaii is always perfect which is a huge bonus. Plus, it looks like at Aulani you’ll get the relaxing beach days, snorkeling, and waterslides, while not sacrificing the chance to see Disney characters or experience Disney’s first in class ability to craft the perfect family vacation with their entertainment and top notch staff.
We are adding Aulani to our bucket list full of vacation destinations!
Aulani will welcome it’s first guests on Aug. 29, 2011. Here’s the official Disney scoop on Aulani from Disney’s press release:
