    Does Aulani have a Halloween time and Christmas time? If so, when do they both start and end? And what changes in the resort? Merchandise? Activities?

    Aloha, Abby, and Welcome to planDisney!

    Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is the ultimate tropical getaway at any time of year, but I definitely understand how visiting during special holidays sprinkles your vacation with extra pixie dust. We actually spent a portion of our Christmas vacation at Aulani a few years ago. Let's take a peek at celebrating festive seasons at Aulani. 

    While there have not been official announcements for this year's Christmas and Halloween Aulani activities, I can give you information based on previous offerings. Typically, throughout the month of October you may find pumpkins scattered throughout the resort in the form of decorations as well as pumpkin-themed (and flavored) treats. Additionally, you should spot some of your favorite Disney characters in their finest Halloween costumes. Also, be sure to check the schedule at the Pau Hana Community Hall for Halloween-themed crafts and activities.

    I can tell you from personal experience that Aulani is outfitted with the most gorgeous Christmas decorations during the holidays. In years past, these decorations go up just after Thanksgiving and remain until the week after Christmas. We visited around New Year's Eve, and the decorations were still abundant. Holiday-inspired treats may be available as well as special activities including Holiday movies on the lawn or possibly even a visit from the big guy in red himself! There was also holiday merchandise available, especially exclusive Aulani ornaments. We found the perfect ornament that featured Aulani as well wishing us "Mele Kalikimaka", or Merry Christmas in Hawaiian. All of these offerings as subject to change, but I suggest keeping an eye on Disney Parks Blog for official announcements as it gets a bit closer to each holiday.
