We are in the planning stages for our trip to Aulani! I am totally excited about this trip! I was hoping for some MouseWait tips. Has anyone ever been. What are some tips? Rent a car? Take the Bus? Buy groceries or eat out? Places to go? Things to see? Is there enough to do at the resort or should we make plans for outside the resort? Any tips would be great! Thanks!

You are in for a treat, Aulani is amazing! If you want to see other parts of the island I would recommend renting a car, even if it's just for part of the trip (Alamo has a desk at the resort). There are so many activities to keep you busy and relaxing by the pool and the beach is fun also. Rainbow reef snorkel lagoon at the resort is a lot of fun also. There are many things to do on the island and visit the Dole Plantation for a Dole Whip! We always stop at Target on the way to the resort and get milk, cereal, a few snack and drinks for the room and prices are not too much higher. Food prices at the resort are similar to any other Disney park. Ama Ama the signature restaurant there is really good for breakfast and dinner and you have a view of the ocean while you eat! Monkey Pod is across the street from Aulani and is fresh, local foods with a good happy hour (food and drinks) and live music, highly recommend it. The spa there is also amazing and you can spend several hours in the outdoor garden before your treatment. The best places to buy Hawaii souvenirs such as Kona coffee and chocolate covered macadamia nuts, etc is Target or there is a Kmart a few exists down both are a lot cheaper than other tourists shops. That's about all I can think of right now, definitely read some Aulani trip reports on DisBoards and you can find additional tips! - Andrea84  627.1 #7 6:15PM
Thank you! - luvthemouse  141.0 #2684 6:03AM
My friend went with her family (her husband and 4 kids) and husbands business parter and wife and 4 kids. She said it was a lot of fun but she didn't pay attention to food prices and it was very pricey. So make sure you check them out. That's about all she told me :( but she said it was nice and the kids had fun. So enjoy!! Id love to go but I know it's not in our near future - brodysmommy  328.5 #652 1:14PM
Thank you for the info! - luvthemouse  141.0 #2684 6:04AM
Look up dolphin excursions! They were amazing. We went whale watching, swimming with dolphins, and sea turtles. It's only 20 minutes from Aulani. It's like 3 or 4 hours and they provide lunch. $120/person and totally worth it! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  552.3 #301 7:33PM
PS I would rent a car. There's so much to see and do on Oahu. Everything is like an hour away (north shore, Polynesian cultural center, Hanauma bay, dole plantation) other than Pearl Harbor and the flea market at Aloha stadium. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  552.3 #301 7:47PM
Oh yes the flea market at aloha stadium is a must. A lot of cheap Hawaii things to bring home for family, and friends. - islandgirl58  251.9 #25 12:46AM
Born and raised on oahu, and till this day we still do a lot of tourist things. - islandgirl58  251.9 #25 12:47AM
Oh you will love it at the Aulani! We stayed for our very first time not to long ago. I would say it's best to rent a car. Bus takes forever to get around, and taxi can cost a lot. - islandgirl58  251.9 #25 12:36AM
So much to see, and do. Don't just spend your whole day at the resort. Some days u should go out and explore. - islandgirl58  251.9 #25 12:39AM

Just announced... The official Pixie Dust Challenge! In 2015 runners who sign up for the challenge and complete both the 10k on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday will receive the Inaugural Pixie Dust Challenge medal in addition to the two race medals! I was an unofficial Pixie Dust Challenge runner last January and loved every minute! I can't wait to see the new bling!

Cool! - disneycm  534.5 #10 10:19AM
A Disney marathon is on my bucket list. Just not sure I'm ever going to be conditioned enough. Lol - UppityEmpress  784.3 #4 8:32AM
Are you going to do this? Know Nancy wants to do the Half. There's no bling like runner's bling! - jacdanfan  6249.4 #10 10:49AM
Definitely! I had planned on running both the 10k and Half again next year anyway. I will be WALKING the 5k. I hope you both can join us for at least one of the races! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  810.7 #3 11:05AM
You mean if I do the 5k I could maybe just maybe beat you to the finish line? I'd only have to run a few steps to get ahead, haha. - jacdanfan  6249.4 #10 3:22PM
That is true! My mother does walk pretty fast though... I may have to jog a few steps to keep up with her! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  810.7 #3 4:33PM
So glad your mom will be joining u next year in a 5k! - islandgirl58  251.9 #25 12:30AM

Hello everyone! I know it's been forever since I've talked to y'all. My health hasn't been the greatest, and I'm getting over my 2nd bout of bronchitis this summer. Through all the bad, there is a ray of sunshine. I booked a trip to WDW for October 2015!! Only 425 days to go! Lol. I hope everyone has a great weekend. =)

Warm summer night at California adventure. Love these nights. Glad I am local I have a place I can get away and forget everything. I feel so stress free when I come here I don't ven think about anything outside of the parks it's weird but it's very therapeutic. Even my friend say the same thing when they come with me

Henry, that's why those of us who don't live near the parks come back again and again! Just think what it would be like if you could only go once a year (or less)! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  810.7 #3 6:33PM
I wish I can shelter all my disney friends close to me jahaha so we can all go - Hendizl  2410.9 #43 6:38PM

"D Movie" of the week: Aristocats. Jake LOVES Scat Cat and his jazz-lovin' alley cat gang! This kid can't resist a band of instruments with a bouncin' beat! 🎷🎢🎸🎢🎺🎢🎻

I haven't seen the Aristocats in ages! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  810.7 #3 7:27PM
Too cool! I watched the Herbie VW movie last night while waiting for Nan to get home! I always stop on a Disney movie, can't help it! I've never seen the Aristocats. Anxious to hear his review! Cute pic! - jacdanfan  6249.4 #10 7:31PM
He loved it! I watched it all the way thru with him the first time (I hadn't seen it in ages, either, Tiffany!) He never took his eyes off it, and that's saying something for only being 3yo, lol! Then, he asked to rewatch the jazz scenes. This kid is gonna be the one to rock it out in a band with his friends in our garage when he's older, lol! I was excited to introduce this classic to him... I knew he'd love it! You need to watch it, Gary! - mrsincredible  772.2 #6 7:38PM
It's available on Netflix, I will! - jacdanfan  6249.4 #10 8:44PM

Water parks are my favorite down time! Although I don't ride the slides anymore except the family raft ride, it is a nice break in the middle of the trip just to refresh. We usually do water park during the day and either the hoop de do, luau, or dinner at dtd. We usually go at opening 10am and stay till about 4. Head back relax then head out for dinner. - mmddgp  378.2 #18 12:03PM
