  • There is a dedicated lounge with restrooms, a television, showers and dressing rooms available for guests with early or late flights.
  • Don’t froget to check the AULANI app for the KA WA‘A – A Lū‘au schedule and book your spot early as advanced reservations are required for this unfrogettable lū‘au adventure.
  • Hop over to Makahiki Restaurant for a delicious 3-course Character breakfast with Mickey Mouse and other Disney Friends.
  • Stop by the nearest towel station with your room key before heading to the pools to get your daily wristband, pool towels and complimentary life jackets for tadpoles.
  • Older tadpoles can enjoy the interactive treasure hunt where they’ll learn about the legend of the Menehune, the possibly magical and mischievous "little people" of Hawai‘i.
  • Seating for the Mo‘olelo Fire Pit Storytelling is limited, so arrive early to snag a spot.
