Service from our waitress at the character buffet breakfast was unattentive and forgetful. We had to remind her a few times about our coffee order and other things. We were disappointed with our dark room and unavailability of a late check out.

Disney always delivers.

We have never stayed at a Disney property this was our first experience. Checking in was superlative. We were greeted as soon as the Valet took our car by a welcome cast member who gave my husband and I each a lei and a necklace to my toddler. She got down yo her level and explained to her briefly the legends of the menehune on her necklace. She then escorted us into tgd lobby after giving us cups of fruit infused water then explained about the murals in the lobby and other architectural and Hawaiian cultural points of interest in the lobby as well as general good to know info. She then took us to the check in counter and introduced us to the lady who would be checking us in. We didn't have to think or figure out where to go or wait in any lines the second we exited our car it was amazing. Our room was great lovely bathroom equipped with a stool for our toddler to access the sink, a lovely sunken tub with two different shower head options. There were wonderful bathrobes, slippers and a pack n play bed stored in the closet for infants/toddlers. We had 2 queen beds so we didn't end up using it. The pools were amazing. The character meet and greet with Moana was amazing she really knew how to make a little one feel special and it didn't feel rushed she spent a time talking to my daughter, not a log mind you but enough. We ate at 3 resort restaurants and had room service. The prices didn't seem exorbitant. The food was good and in nice proportions.

Everything at your fingertips

Our stay at the Aulani was extraordinary. From the staff to the facility to the amenities you couldn't ask for more. We were in a standard room with 4 adults and had plenty of room. We were only on the second floor and the view from our room faced the lazy river. Very tropical looking and not noisy. Loved the adult pool but I wish there was an adult lounge for late night since we had no small children with us. That's probably my only criticism.

Perfect vacation with small kids

OK it's not cheap, but it's one of those things that is just worth every penny. We had the happiest kids on earth for our whole stay there, which made us happy parents. So much stuff to enjoy, made so easily accessible - kids pools, floating on donuts down a river, watching fish in the reef, kayaking, building sand castles, and enjoying some indoors art projects. This is our second trip there and we're certainly up for a repeat next year!

Disney has done a wonderful job with this resort!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
A wonderful resort,very beautiful place. We were able to relax on a gorgeous beach and view spectacular sunsets while dipping in a two level hottub. Early risers could get breakfast by 6:00 a.m. and then do exercises on the beach with an instructor. Wonderful free tour of the lovely lobby and an ability to create our own video and send it to family and friends! Daily activities...we made our own beautiful flowered leis! We even got to take our photo with Stitch!
