After a 6 day stay in Waikiki, we decided to end our vacation with one night in Aulani. This is on the other side of Oahu and much quieter. Once we drove up to the resort, we were greeted by the valet/bell hop who asked us for our last name and advised us that our room was ready. We were then approached by another greeter with a lei and necklaces for the kids. The check-in process for the most part was smooth. We were in room 445, which had a view of the street. The room was spacious to accommodate our family of 4. Being a Disney resort, it is expected to be busy and filled with kids everywhere. The disappointing factor was that we could not find seating in the pool area. Unless you get there real early in the morning, you are literally standing around waiting for someone to leave. It got to the point where people just laid their stuff on the ground or simply used a side table (we did this). The kids enjoyed the lazy river and the splash area. With regard to dining, it's pricey as expected. If you're able to do so, drive into Kapolei and find eateries. It's just so much cheaper. We were able to enjoy the open house offered by Aunty's house. The kids got the opportunity to do arts and crafts and dance with chip and dale. All in all, it's a beautiful resort. Just a bit too big and pricey for my taste Just for one night, we spent over $600 (accommodations, parking, dining). I can't imagine spending more than that. I would much prefer to have stayed in Waikiki.
