“Ohana means family.”
The magic of a vacation to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, comes to life thanks to the rich Hawaiian culture, unforgettable details and of course, our cast members. Today, I’m delighted to start a series on the Disney Parks Blog that features one of those key ingredients: our cast members. In fact, Walt Disney once said: “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world … but it requires people to make that dream a reality.”
“Meet Aulani’s ‘Ohana” will showcase cast members from around the resort and highlight how their unique roles create magical memories of Hawai’i for our guests. Our series kicks off with Janelle Sanqui, the first-ever Disney Ambassador at Aulani. Learn about her role and her Disney journey thus far in the video below!

If you head out to Magic Kingdom Park to celebrate this Fourth of July week, you’ll have the chance to witness a milestone event in the park’s entertainment history – the 30th anniversary of Tinker Bell’s pre-fireworks flight.
We all have a favorite host from ABC’s “The Chew” – superstars Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall and Daphne Oz each have a special way of sharing their culinary know-how on the Emmy-Award-winning lifestyle series. And for the first time in the show’s history, these dynamic hosts are leaving the Manhattan studio to tape shows October 7, 8, and 9 from the 20th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. The five festival episodes will air October 12-16.
So you’re not able to be at Walt Disney World Resort for the Fourth of July but you want to celebrate the holiday in Disney style? Well, the Disney Parks Blog has you covered. We are excited to announce that the Magic Kingdom Park July 4th fireworks show will stream ‘live’ at 9 p.m. EDT right here on the Disney Parks Blog.
Fireworks are a daily spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort. In July 1992, Donald and Mickey joined in the fireworks fun for an All-American Salute.
