Meet Aulani’s ‘Ohana: Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa Ambassador

“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!


  • Vacationing at a Disney resort is always been a family tradition for my wife, my two children and I. Ever since we have visited Aulani last year, we has seen the magic of Disney, the tradition of Hawaii, and the unique experience and relaxation my family had encountered all rolled in to one. Aulani, here we come again!
