Aulani is easily 45 minutes to an hour (or more) from Waikiki.
You really need at least 3 nights to see Aulani itself, and 4 or 5 is optimal. Add in a day at Waikiki and another climbing Diamond Head or visiting the North Shore, and you’re looking at least 6 nights plus time to recover from jet lag.
Aulani does offer a simple dining option. Guests who choose to enhance their vacation with the Ali Cafe Dining Plan are entitled to one dining experience including a non-specialty beverage at Ulu Cafe, a quick service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, per person, per day.

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, is a beachside resort hotel at the Ko Olina Resort in Kapolei, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Affiliated with the Disney Vacation Club, Aulani was the third Disney “stand-alone” hotel that is located in an area without any adjacent theme park.
There’s so much to do at and around Aulani Resort that you may not need a car! For overnight Guests who wish to park, self-parking is $37* per day or for the same price, enjoy convenient valet parking service.
Face coverings are required for anyone (ages 2 and up) who enters Aulani property. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them in all indoor locations, including Laniwai – A Disney Spa, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing.
A: Sorry, Aulani does not offer a day pass. Most amenities—including the pools, beach equipment and activities—are exclusive to overnight Guests staying at Aulani. Day Guests are welcome to enjoy the dining, shopping and spa experiences offered at Aulani.
How do I change or cancel reservations for activities? A: Activity changes and cancellations must be requested in person at Aulani, or by calling the Disney Reservation Center at (866) 44-DISNEY or (866) 443-4763.
Aulani has a pool area, nice beachfront, and an Aunty’s playhouse (activities for kids). There are no rides, no castle, no parades, a few characters walking around, tho not often. It is not like Disneyworld nor Disneyland.
While officially, MagicBands are not currently in use at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, some Guests have reported success in using them for things such as their room door. … The trick will be that since MagicBands are not officially used at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, they may or may not work for you.
In the “Know Before You Go” sections about the pool areas at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, the policies listed indicate that you cannot bring outside alcohol or coolers to the pool areas. Coolers are permitted for medical reasons. These policies are the same for the poolside cabanas at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.
Uber or Lyft will cost you about $40-60 dollars to get from the airport to Aulani. Uber or Lyft will pick up passengers at two designated areas on the second-level median curb — at Terminal 1 (formerly the Interisland Terminal) across from Lobby 2.
The 40 min session is $400, plus a $50 surcharge for sunset. For that you receive a CD with all images.
Re: Aulani – walkable restaurant options? Monkeypod is across the street in the shopping center across the street. It’s a cool restaurant with yummy food and a wide selection of local beers.
