    In fall 2014 during our DW vacation we purchased with DVC. We are soon to take our 1st trip with DVC in a 1 bdr villa at Aulani. We will grocery shop in HI but wonder if there are basic items you could suggest packing that would save us $ during the shop

    Hi Stephanie! Welcome to the Disney Vacation Club and congratulations on your upcoming trip to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa...I can't wait to get there!

    With a Disney Vacation Club villa you can offset some costs by utilizing the kitchen, this is an absolute must for our family of 6. Pack your essential condiments, spices and non-perishable groceries like cereal, crackers, pasta noodles, juice packets, canned goods etc in your checked luggage. I say bring whatever you can safely carry. As a Disney Vacation Club member you can submit an order form to have groceries delivered to your villa and a limited selection of grocery items are available at Kālepa's Store.

    Located near Aulani at Ko Olina Resort, Island Country Market features a full-service deli and groceries like lunch meats, cheese, produce, salads and wine. You can take advantage of complimentary shuttle transportation to Ko Olina Resort, with a convenient shuttle stop located just across the street from Aulani.

    I'm so excited for your family as you begin your exciting journey as Disney Vacation Club members - wishing you many years of magical vacations.
