I hope you join me in wishing Todd and our friends and family at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, a happy anniversary! I can hardly believe it has been two years since the official opening and I know the excitement is building as they prepare for their upcoming expansion to the pool and dining areas with Ka Maka Landing and Ulu Cafe on October 19.
Earlier this year, we celebrated the opening of Hale Manu, a new contemporary boutique featuring authentic Hawaiian and luxurious lifestyle merchandise. I like to consider this location a hidden treasure because it’s just off the beaten path past the main lobby. Be sure to make it a “must visit” on your list after you arrive. Hale Manu is also home to our line of graphic apparel tees as well as Dooney & Bourke – that’s worth the trip right there!
But one of my personal favorites is the Maui Divers Tahitian Pearl jewelry collection.
A little closer to the main lobby is where you’ll find Kālepa’s Store. For those of you who have never been to Aulani before, here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside. The Aloha Retro all-over print is the fan favorite here. Check it out!
But it’s Duffy who everyone wants to take home… and with these two aloha and Aulani inspired outfits, who wouldn’t?
Over the next couple months I hope to take you shopping around the resort, so I hope you have your bags packed, sunscreen ready and are ready to shop until you drop. Just keep in mind that we’ll be doing a lot of window shopping, as most of the merchandise seen at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa locations are only available there.
Until next time…
My family and I went on a wish vacation through the children’s wish foundation of Canada in October of this year, it was a awesome trip! I meant to get a Christmas ornament from aulani, is there any way of ordering one from you on here, it would be great to surprise the rest of my family, if I could get one?
My wife..still new saying that…LOL.. will be there on the Oct 7th for our Honeymoon.. can you get beach towels , picture frames etc. at your shop??? This is her first time to the Islands, i know she will wants reminders of everything…lol
A wonderful read!! Thanks for sharing this great Aulani information, Michelle! Love your posts 🙂
Those Duffy Bears are super cute! Is there anyway to purchase these bears from the mainland?
Unfortunately not at this time, but if that should change, I’ll be sure to let you know.
My boyfriend & I went a few weeks ago and they didn’t have anymore men’s hawaiian shirts like the one in the middle of the entrance 🙁 Is there any way that we can order them from the mainland? We were so bummed out!
What’s the chance of getting some of these Aulani merchandise on Disneystore
My cream colored Aulani D&B is my favorite of all my disney bags. I get so many compliments on it. Nice new merchandise. I hope they get more pins.
Jennie, I heard that the Aulani Dooney & Bourke cream toned bag was amazing. I have quite a few friends who have picked it up on their travels there as well. I’m so glad you love it!
