    Since Aulani is now set up with at least some Magicband + features (room key, charging privileges, activity with Menehune hunt), why are we not able to purchase bands at a discounted rate like at WDW?

    Aloha Tiffany, welcome back to planDisney!

    Mahalo for bringing an excellent question about Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Your trip to the Hawaiian paradise is just around the corner and you'll find yourself enjoying the sand and surf in no time! My family visited Aulani just over a year ago and fell in love with the Resort. For those who love being busy, there are so many activities to do from meeting Mickey and pals during Character Meets to learning how to play ukulele among so much more. Suppose you're the type who is looking for relaxation; in that case, Laniwai Spa is the place to experience Kula Wai, O‘ahu's only outdoor hydrotherapy garden or perhaps lounging by the Waikolohe Pool is more your pace. 

    Aulani is beginning to roll out the use of Magicbands through room keys, charging privileges and they are working on the features within the Menehune Adventure Trail. I chatted with a Cast Member at DVC Member Services and I inquired about discounted MagicBand+. Unfortunately, there are no current plans to include the MagicBand+ for purchase with a reservation, but, should you wish to purchase one to use during your stay, you can visit Kālepa's Store and use your DVC Member and choose from several available styles of MagicBand+. DVC Members currently receive a 10% discount on merchandise (subject to change). 

    Disney Vacation Club Members receive discounts on a variety of events and experiences as well as at Aulani. I highly recommend taking a peek before you head to the resort, there may be a few activities that float your boat!

    I wish you a wonderful vacation at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, enjoy the sun and sand!
