    Hi! My family & I are DVC members & will be taking our first trip to Aulani next month. I'm wondering about PhotoPass at Aulani. Do they offer anything like WDW's Memory Maker? The Aulani website doesn't share packages or pricing.

    Aloha Diane!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are so lucky to be embarking on your tropical adventure soon! Hawaii is one of my favorite vacation destinations. It is truly a paradise. When I step off the plane in the islands, the first thing that I notice is the air smells sweet thanks to the lush flora. I can almost envision it right now!

    So you are in luck! Just like Walt Disney World Resort, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa offers a variety of photography services. These range from underwater photography as you snorkel, to the Disney PhotoPass Service. When you arrive at your hotel, you can pick up a PhotoPass card and (like your MagicBand at Walt Disney World) it will be your link to all of your fantastic vacation snaps! I just found out that you can view your photos on your in-room television. I can’t think of anything better than leisurely scrolling through memories with the perfect island breeze in the background.

    Since you have the most luscious background at your Resort, take the opportunity for a professional portrait session. You choose your location at the Resort, and then a professional photographer will hold a 20 to a 40-minute session with as many poses as you like. All of the images are yours to keep on a disc, so the photo for the family Christmas card would be done in July (you will be so ahead of the holiday game)! We did a similar photo session on a family holiday last year, and to date, they are some of my favorite family pictures! There is something about being relaxed on vacation that adds a special magic to the images.

    Diane, If you have any other questions, please swing on back! As Travel + Leisure magazine stated, at Aulani, “the magical details are plentiful.” I know you and your family are going to have a beautiful vacation.
