hey everyone so i thought this was interseting "The Walt Disney Co. has just opened a new beachside Hawaiian resort called Aulani! Located on the west side of Oahu, Aulani is an hours drive from Waikiki and the idea behind it is quite simple. Although Mickey and friends are everywhere on the property, the main reason for guests visiting will be for Hawaii itself. Hawaiis culture, history and natural beauty are by far and away the biggest stars. Essentially, its quite obvious that if guests want to go to Disneyland, they will go to Disneyland. Guests are visiting Aulani first for Hawaii and second for Mickey and friends.
True, visitors will find a Mickey lamp in every room, with his image ingeniously blended in the design of the bedding, and of course Mickey friends can be found strolling round in vivid aloha shirts. But the focus here is definitely on Hawaii.
Another great thing about this particular resort is the language and tradition. It is found in almost all aspects of the place, from taro fields and landscaping, to the Olelo Room lounge, where everything is labelled in the Hawaiian language. Everything from the chairs (noho) to the floor (papahele) is labelled. Olelos servers and bartenders are fluent in Hawaiian and speak to each other in the islands native tongue whilst also sharing the language with guests.
The resort has two main towers with 359 hotel rooms and 481 time-share condo units. With two main restaurants, conference rooms, a fire pit for storytelling, an 18,000-square-foot spa and a huge water play area for the kids, this hotel has it all. Disney chose not to comment on the cost of the building, but it reportedly cost more than $800 million to build.
In addition to the 8,200 sq-ft pool, there is a 950 ft long lazy river where kids can leisurely glide along in a rubber tube through brilliant surroundings. Forests and caverns greet the kids as well as a saltwater snorkel lagoon filled with brightly coloured tropical fish, rock formations with lava tube slides and even an aquatic jungle gym suitably named Menehune Bridge."
