    How far is Pearl Harbor from Aulani Resort?

    Aloha Chrissy!

    I am happy to hEAR you have an upcoming trip planned at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i! You must be so excited! My family enjoyed a wonderful stay at Aulani this past March and we simply can't wait to return. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    Chrissy, during our stay we thoroughly enjoyed exploring every nook and cranny of Oahu that we could, and the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites were a definite highlight. It is a very moving, sober, and patriotic experience. I highly recommend spending at least half a day to explore and pay tribute to this special memorial during your trip.

    The drive from Aulani to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center takes approximately 20-25 minutes and is a distance of roughly 18 miles. You will definitely want to make reservations (for free) in advance of your stay, starting two months in advance of your scheduled visit date. While tours run daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., I highly recommend arriving early, before the larger crowds hit later in the day.

    As a special treat, I also recommend visiting Anna Miller's restaurant for breakfast on your way. It is located very close by to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and is open 24 hours a day, so whatever time you plan to arrive your breakfast can be accommodated. 
    Chrissy, I hope this information is helpful. If we can be of any further assistance as you plan your upcoming Hawai‘ian vacation at Aulani, please let us know. We are here to help!
