We didn't stay at Aulani, but the Marriot right next door. We walked over to Aulani a few times for Mickey Bars.
If you want to purchase groceries, go to the ABC Store in the little mall across the street. Great selections and a lot cheaper.
We hiked Diamond Head. It can be very hot. Take your time and make sure you have water with you.
Pearl Harbor is a must!
The North Shore is beautiful so that is a must if you have a car.
The Dole Plantation has Dole Whips. Because these are made with fresh pineapple, they are better than the ones at WDW (but I'm still not a fan!)
I highly suggest the Oahu Revealed guide book. It is amazing and spot on with recommendations. In fact, any of the island Revealed books are second only to the PassPorter books as far as guide books go.
If you can, island hop. Maui is not our favorite. We love the Big Island and Kauai the most.
These are great tips! We are planning on renting a car because it will probably be cheaper. I am going to look into the Oahu Revealed book. Thank you!
One half of a travel loving couple. We love Disney and the Disney Vacation Club! DVC owners at Aulani and Animal Kingdom Lodge.
So glad I found this post! We head to O’ahu in 2 weeks, planning on 2 nights at Aulani at he end of our trip. Our intention is to stay and relax at the resort for those 2days. How is the food at the smaller restaurants on site, or where could we walk to? Thanks!
Enjoying some very Disney years since 2014 thanks to dd, cast member with great perks!

We are here now and having a wonderful time. In the ABC store across the street we’ve been getting their large dinner plate that includes a couple of different options for entree plus mashed potatoes or rice and then peas and corn. It is enough for both my husband and myself and even better they run between 8.50 and 9.99. Freshmade each day. We also bought breakfast food. I’d highly recommend the shrimp tacos at “Off the Hook”
