Is your ‘ohana ready for some festive fall fun? On select Saturday evenings in October, the resort will host Aulani Ho`olaule`a, a Halloween Party with face painting, balloon artists, games, prizes, dancing and more on the Halawai Lawn. Disney friends including Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale appear in their best Halloween costumes for photos and character greetings.
