Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa was inspired by the wonders and traditions of Hawai‘i, Aulani Resort is uniquely designed for families. Perfectly placed on a beautiful beachfront cove, Aulani Resort offers kids, adults, and families vacation experiences with a special magic that only Disney can create.
Aulani is relaxed yet regal with detailed touches of Disney magic. The white sandy beach, tropical gardens, turquoise lagoons and sparkling waterfalls are just a few highlights of this balmy paradise. Inside the Resort, lava rock rises up through the floor of the grand lobby as dual pools of water cross the expanse: one gently flows with lilies while the other rushes wildly through. This Hawaiian philosophy of balance – bright and shadowy, brisk and slow, delicate and coarse – resonates deeply throughout the resort. It reflects not only the nature of the islands but the spirit of its people.
Add to this the exhilarating enchantment of Disney through its family entertainment and recreation, and you’ll find a world of fun at your fingertips!

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, is part of the Ko Olina Resort Community & Marina, which is located on the western shore of O’ahu about 17miles from the Honolulu International Airport in Hawai’i. Aulani rests on 21 acres of beachfront property in the Ko Olina Resort & Marina development.
With clear skies and warm temperatures, Hawai’i boasts some of the best weather in the world. Keep in mind, however, that weather conditions can vary depending on which side of the island you are visiting and at what altitude, with temperatures dropping the higher up you travel into the mountains.
The Hawai’i-Aleutian Standard Time (HST) is 5 hours behind Eastern Standard Time (EST) and 2 hours behind Pacific Standard Time (PST). Hawai’i does not recognize daylight savings time. Therefore, during those months add an extra hour to EST and PST times.
