Adults and kids alike will love the range of activities on offer at the Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas. Sprawling grounds filled with lush native greenery and lava rock formations are the perfect venue for a relaxing stroll, followed by a cooling dip in one of the pools and a float down the lazy river – or, for the more adventurous, a plummet down the water slide. A kids’ club keeps youngsters entertained with free activities inspired by Hawaiian art and culture, and it’s not unheard of to run into Disney Characters while exploring the grounds. Meanwhile, grown-ups can relax with refreshing drinks at the laid-back poolside bar, or chill out in the full-service spa.
