As we start out a new year, we reflect on the one we just wrapped up. How were your holidays? If you’re like us, Disney usually plays a large role in your holiday traditions.
Are you tired of the cold and the snow? Have you ever considered a Hawaiian Christmas? It’s never to early to start planning for the next holiday season!
This is our article, originally published on LaughingPlace.com, about the magical combination of Disney, Hawaii, and the Holidays!
What are some of your most treasured holiday traditions? Christmas trees, halls decked with lights and garland, or fresh-baked gingerbread cookies? Of course, everything is better when shared with your favorite Disney characters! You’ll find all of these – and so much more – at Aulani during the holidays.
Aulani – a Disney resort on the sunny southwest coast of Oahu – has been welcoming guests since August 29, 2011. The resort presents a delightful marriage of Disney magic and Hawaiian aloha. And it is all the more enchanting during the holiday season.
From the beginning, Aulani was designed with guidance from Hawaiian elders to accurately represent the native culture. The Hawaiian word ‘Aulani’ translates to ‘messenger of a chief.’ Talented local artists were commissioned to tell the story of the Hawaiian Islands, and record music for this distinctive resort.
Native Hawaiian-speaking cast members serve as cultural ambassadors, and create an authentic island experience. And true to Disney heritage, you’ll find something for everyone in the family.
