More Water Fun, Dining Options Coming in Aulani Resort Expansion

posted on July 26th, 2012 by John McClintock, Disney Public Relations

If you’ve had the opportunity to visit Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa – or even if you’ve just been reading about it – you know how much fun it is and how popular it’s been with families visiting Hawai`i.

As a result of all the excitement about Aulani and its amenities, we’re already planning an expansion of the resort. New water features will be added to the Waikolohe Valley pool area, along with additional deck space for sunbathing and relaxing. Two new quick-service food locations also will be part of the enhancements, and the popular “Starlit Hui” show will move to a larger lawn so that even more guests can enjoy the performance.

Work on all this is scheduled to begin in September. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for regular updates on plans and progress.

Looks like I’ll have to return to enjoy the updates.

Does that mean that the Waikolohe water area will not be able to be used in September? I’m planning a trip then and I wanted my daughter to be able to enjoy this area.

Hi…or should I say, Aloha, Priscilla. Much of Waikolohe Valley will remain open, including Waikolohe Pool, the lazy river, slides, whirlpool spas, Rainbow Reef and Menehune Bridge. For more information, you can find a list of questions and answers on our web site at — or, you may call 866-242-8945 and press option 2 to speak with a Cast Member.
I’m pleased to know you’re coming to Aulani. Hope you have a great visit!

Will the expansion be done for the christmas/new years holiday?

So disappointed that the Starlight Hui will be closed when we visit in September. I have heard that the show is awesome.

Starlit Hui will close for approximately one month… When? The Starlit Hui was my favorite thing. I’d like to know when as we plan our next visit.

Does this mean we get our adult only pool back? There really needs to be an adult only pool again at this resort.
