Aloha!!! After spending 4 full days in Waikiki for Megan’s dance competition, we were so excited to head over to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii!  When we arrived at Aulani, we were immediately greeted with traditional leis.  We checked-in at the beautiful check-in desk and admired the gorgeous lobby that overlooked Waikolohe Valley and the beach cove. 

We went over to the Mahalo Member Mingle, which was an event specifically for Disney Vacation Club members.  We got to learn more about the resort, pin trade with fellow DVC members, and answer trivia questions for prizes.  Megan won a DVC luggage tag for answering a question about Oahu, and Bonnie won an Aulani print for correctly spelling supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 

After the event, our room was ready!  We had a beautiful island view of the mountains and a very nice room!  After getting settled and unpacked, we headed down to Waikolohe Valley!  This consisted of a body slide which led into the pool area, an inter tube slide that led into the lazy river, and the Menehune Bridge.  We had a great lunch at Off the Hook, and spent a very fun afternoon soaking up the sun!  We even saw our favorite mice, Mickey and Minnie, as well as Goofy, who were all on vacation at Aulani too!  We enjoyed yummy a snack of the famous Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream bars! 

Afterwards, we got ready for dinner at Makahiki.  This was by far the best buffet we have ever been to!  We enjoyed Hawaiian dishes, as well as Caesar salad, shrimp, and prime rib.  After dinner, we went out to the Starlit Hui show on the Halawai Lawn, which was filled with Polynesian performances! 

We called it a night and got ready for another great day at Disney in paradise!


This morning, we had breakfast at the Olelo Room.  After breakfast, we went to the DVC Preview Center to do some pin trading before heading out to Aulani’s beach cove.  We enjoyed a great morning catching some rays, playing in the sand, and having fun in the ocean.  We ate lunch at Mama’s Snack Stop, and saw Chip & Dale and Mickey & Minnie.  Afterwards, we had fun in Waikolohe Valley as we went down the slides and hung out in the pool.  Then, we had a special meet and greet with Stitch, who is Megan’s all-time favorite character! 

Courtney and Megan did an animation activity in the Pau Hana room, where they learned how to draw Mickey Mouse, and painted pictures of Stitch and Goofy.  We enjoyed some delicious shaved ice before heading up to our room to get ready for the evening.  We went out to the beach to watch the sunset and take some pictures! 

Then, we went to dinner at AMA AMA.  We requested a waterside table, and the awesome host Michael seated us at the best table in the house!  We had an absolutely incredible view of the sunset over the water!!  We also had the best waiter, Kevin, who we had read reviews about prior to our dinner.  We all enjoyed filet mignons that were perfect!  It was a great dinner at AMA AMA and a wonderful way to end our last night in Hawaii!  We did some shopping in the gift shop and enjoyed an ice cream treat before packing and heading to bed.


We spent our last morning at Aunty’s Celebration Breakfast, which is a character buffet at Makahiki!  We saw Mickey when we arrived to the restaurant, and Minnie, Goofy, and Aunty came around to our table!  We had a very delicious breakfast, and it was such a fun meal to start off our last day at Aulani!  We finished packing our bags, and then spent the rest of the day at Waikolohe Valley and the beach cove! 

We enjoyed a yummy lunch at Off the Hook.  We did some last minute pin trading and shopping, and grabbed one last ice cream treat and shaved ice!  We had such a wonderful time at Aulani, and made some great family memories!  Even though it was many miles away from Walt Disney World, it truly felt like a Disney resort, complete with all of the magical Disney touches and details!  

Mahalo for reading!

Until July,

The Suchart's
