This week we are joined by special guest Dave Tupper to discuss Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa!

If you are not familiar, Aulani is a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) resort located in Ko Olina, Hawaii on the island of Oahu.


Dave tells us about Disney and Menehune magic which can be found all over the resort, and that you should not miss the Starlit Hui, which is like a luau, with hula dancing and Hawaiian music.

Parking and Disney’s way of limiting locals access to amenities which would lead to overcrowding is discussed.

We talk about the check in process and how smooth it is and the Disney magic to be found in the lobby.

We break into our favorite topic, food, and Dave tells us about the dining options found in Aulani, including the character breakfast.

Dave goes on to tell us about Aunty’s Beach House, the kids club.

Aulani gets top notch Hawaiian musicians in to entertain guests.

Are you like me, and don’t want to go in the ocean because that’s where the sharks live? There are plenty of fantastic swimming / hot tub options at the resort that don’t bring you in contact with aquatic critters.
