There’s nothing like a summer vacation! While I haven’t had a chance to experience any fun in the sun yet this summer, a girl can dream. For those of you who have chosen Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, as your destination this August, here are few things you won’t want to miss!


On August 8, Plumeria Sun, known for their great pareos and sun dresses will take part in a special trunk show at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. Representatives will be on hand showcasing some of these items and more at Painted Sky from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Hale Manu from 3 – 5 p.m.


Also debuting this August will be new Duffy the Disney Bear and Shellie May dressed plush. Inspired by Tori Richard art and apparel, you’ll find these two ready for a tropical getaway, just like your own visit to this magical destination. They’ll be arriving shortly at Kalepa’s Store, so keep your eyes peeled.


Something I plan to look for on my next visit is the Na Mea Hawai’i sunrise shell jewelry collection. I had a chance to chat with Lori Yunson from Na Mea, who shared details on these amazing one-of-a-kind pieces.

“If you are ever fortunate to come across one, you will know right away, as the shell itself glows as the sun rises,” says Lori. “These hand-crafted pieces have been created by local artisans and are considered rare finds from the shores and beaches of Hawai’i.”

On your next visit be sure to stop by Hale Manu to learn more, see the different designs available and perhaps even add one to your collection.

What have you found at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, that I should know about?


  • Could you tell me what other Shellie May items, especially clothing for her, are currently available at Aulani? My Duffy has so many outfits and Shellie May only has a pink sundress.

  • Do you have an exact release date for Duffy and Shellie May? We are staying there August 17-23! So excited!

    • Hi Sabrina! You’re in luck! The newly dressed Duffy the Disney Bear plush has already arrived at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, and Shellie May should be there by the end of this week. So perfect timing. Enjoy your stay!!

  • The seashell necklace is stunning! I love all things pearls (and Disney, of course) Thank you for sharing.

    • I’m so glad you like it Charlene! It’s such a great story as to how they find these unique shells and a bit of a hidden treasure at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.
