On our latest trip to Hawaii we carefully crafted an itinerary that would balance a range of activities and sightseeing around Oahu, mixed with plenty of time to just relax and enjoy Disney's Aulani Resort. (You can read our review of the resort and 10 first time tips here.) With our best travel buds joining us we had a blast. Looking for ideas for your trip itinerary?

After arriving at Honolulu International Airport we hopped in a Jeep Wrangler to drive approximately 30 minutes to the town of Ko'Olina. As we approached you could see a handful of resorts lined up along the ocean's edge. Aulani stuck out as the most beautiful and unique looking. We pulled up to an understated entry sign that led us up a drive lined with tropical plants to the main lobby doors. We were immediately greeted by a handful of cast members who were very welcoming.

We were supposed to be writing a review today of the Disney Vacation Club property on Hilton Head Island. We were looking forward to our long weekend reservation that we booked to attend a wedding. Well along came Hurricane Irma and the whole island was shut down. Thankfully after the storm passed some businesses started opening and our friends' wedding was on! (And a fantastic event!) Unfortunately the Disney resort never opened for us to stay at or even check it out. We lucked out snagging a last minute ocean view room at a Marriott property. It was right next to the Disney Beach house which was locked up as well when we walked by. We did had an amazing trip and enjoyed HHI a lot. We plan on going back at a future date to explore more and get some Disney magic on our next trip. Stay tuned for a review next time!
