New Ka Maka Landing Officially Opens Tomorrow at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa

Hele mai – come this way – and celebrate the official opening of our new Ka Maka Landing here at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa

This week, we have hosted more than 100 television, radio, print and online media to showcase our spectacular new pool and dining location. Ka Maka Landing is stunning addition to our Waikolohe Valley, adding an infinity pool and a dynamic splash zone to existing slides, pool, Waikolohe Stream and Menehune Bridge. And donʻt forget that Ulu Cafe now provides great choices for your dining selections at Aulani for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We were able to give sneak peeks to some of our resort guests, and the reaction has been unbelievable. They love swimming in a pool whose edge seems to blend with the horizon of the blue Pacific, and at night, the grotto lights up with stars – just like magic!

So, hele mai! Visit your travel agent or DisneyAulani.com and check out a chance to get your 4th night free with a consecutive four-night stay, along with free breakfasts each morning (for two adults) at Ulu Cafe during your stay. We look forward to seeing you here!

Duckies Waddle at Aulani to Support Efforts in Conserving Our Lands and Water

posted on September 6th, 2013 by Todd Apo, Director, Public Affairs, Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa


To commemorate the second anniversary of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, last week – and in support of the Nature Conservancy – a global conservation organization, cast members and guests celebrated with the resort’s first-ever Ducky Derby through the Waikolohe Stream. We captured a “duck-eye” view of more than 1,000 rubber duckies starting their journey from the top of Tubestone Curl, then making a mad splash around the stream before racing to the finish line. For each guest participating, Aulani made a $10 donation, resulting in a $10,000 contribution to Hawai`iʻs Nature Conservancy to help preserve and sustain Hawai`iʻs environment – from the mountains to the ocean.
