    Hi, My family is planning a trip to Aulani next year. When is a good time to start thinking about making reservations for summer 2018. Also, we have invited several friends to join us. Does the resort offer group discounts of any kind? Thanks

    Aloha Esther! 

    I am so happy to hear you are planning your 'Ohana vacation for next summer at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i. In a word, this award winning Resort is Spectacular! My family had the pleasure of visiting here for the first time earlier this year, and it is definitely now our favorite Disney Vacation Club Resort!

    I spoke today with an Aulani Cast Member who confirmed that room rates for next summer have not yet been finalized. However, she expects that within another month or two the rates for next summer should be released and you will then be able to start making your room reservations.

    The Cast Member I spoke with also advised that group discounts are sometimes available and typically require a minimum of 10 rooms. She suggested that you contact Aulani's Group Reservations office directly at (321) 939-4043 for more information.

    Esther, there are currently a number of Special Offers offered by Aulani for travel this year during both the spring and fall. At this point it is too early to tell whether there will be any special offers or promotions offered next year, but I definitely recommend that you keep checking back as your dates get closer to see if any savings or offers may be applicable for your stay.

    Should you have any further questions as you continue with your trip planning, please be sure to send them our way. We are here to help and definitely want you to have the best possible upcoming vacation at Aulani. I truly hope that you come to love it as much as my family!
