For the last few days of our Hawaii trip, we went over to the island of Oahu to Disney's Aulani resort! I never thought I'd get to stay there! It was a really beautiful place.
These cute Mickey towels were waiting on our beds when we checked in. (See the Hidden Mickeys on the quilt?)
Even nicer, our California Disney contacts sent us all this amazing Disney treat!
I made quick work of the gift shop. You can't see the other big bag hiding behind this one. :)
Aulani is a kid's paradise. The pool and beach are perfect for family fun. There is a tube water slide and a lazy river that we loved. Bruce played on the beach a lot.
He also went golfing.
Aulani is not as "Mickey-fied" as I thought it would be. In fact, you don't see any Disney characters except in the gift shop. They do, however, have a special soundtrack for the elevators- Disney songs sung in Hawaiian. Think: Be My Guest or Just Can't Wait To Be King- in Hawaiian. Cool stuff.
