    Aloha! I have the first appointment of the day for the spa at Aulani at 10am. My confirmation says to arrive 1 hour prior for hydrotherapy garden, will they open at 9am for this even though the first appointment starts at 10am? Thank you!

    Aloha, Amanda!

    It's so nice to see you back at planDisney.  Thanks for stopping by with a question at about Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.  If you ask me, the only thing better than a tropical island getaway is getting to enjoy a day of relaxation at the spa during your visit!  I hope you enjoy your time at Laniwai - A Disney Spa during your upcoming Aulani stay –– it sounds like pure paradise to me!

    Since I know you won't want to miss a moment of relaxation (and who could blame you!), I reached out to an Aulani Cast Member to clarify the Laniwai opening times and policies. I'm happy to report that I have some great news –– you will be able to access the hydrotherapy garden at 9 AM ahead of your 10 AM reservation, but the doors to the treatment areas won't be open until the spa officially opens at 10. This means you'll be able to get the full spa experience, even with your early reservation.  How cool is that?!

    With your visit to Aulani Resort just around the corner, I'm sure you're already thinking of all those last-minute details that will help make your vacation perfect.  To help you prepare for your visit, I have one more thing to add to your planning to-do list –– be sure to download our planDisney Pocket Guide to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa before you arrive. In it, you'll find all the details you need to help you plan and navigate the perfect trip, from Resort details to food and beverage options, recreational activities, and so much more. Not only are these guides a great way to help you plan for your visit, but they make an awesome reference during your vacation, too! Believe me, you won't want to miss all the insider info they have to offer!

    Mahalo for visiting planDisney, Amanda.  I'm wishing you a legendary visit to Aulani Resort!
