    Where can I find information about Halloween activities, schedules, and dates at Aulani? We're planning our first trip in October, but since it's our first time we actually want to try to avoid the Halloween stuff.

    Aloha, Russell! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney--our 'Ohana loves nothing more than sharing all of our very best tips for a magical Disney adventure. I'm happy to help with your question!

    Any time is a great time to journey to where the sky meets the sea--otherwise known as Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Aulani is a stunning Hawaiian paradise with some extra pixie dust that gives it a uniquely Disney flavor. It's particularly special to our family as our first vacation as Disney Vacation Club Members took place there! I am sure you are counting down the days to your first visit, and I understand the instinct to seek out some non-Halloween activities during your island time. 

    Russell, schedules for October activities and events have not been released at this time. I spoke with a Cast Member at Aulani who let me know that this information is usually available in early fall for planning purposes. She was able to share some Halloween happenings from past years so you can get an idea--these included themed decorations and pumpkin-centric treats, Character greetings in costume, Halloween crafts and games (including make-your-own Mickey ears that she raved about!), and a trick-or-treat trail on the holiday itself.

    The Daily 'Iwa is Aulani's daily activities schedule and it's a great resource to refer to throughout your vacation to see what's happening each day. Things are happening all over the resort and I think you'll have no problem finding plenty to do that isn't part of spooky season! Here's a few of our family's favorites that I highly recommend: 
    • The Waikolohe Valley pool area is simply amazing. There are great waterslides, interactive play areas, and a relaxing lazy river that we still talk about! You can also rent snorkel gear and enjoy some time under the sea at Rainbow Reef, Aulani's private lagoon, or the public lagoons of Ko Olina.
    • We LOVED the evening luau, KA WA'A. It is an unforgettable experience featuring traditional Hawaiian food, stories, music, and dancing under the stars. Reservations are required, which you can make via phone or the Aulani website. 
    • There are other excursions offered all around Oahu departing from Aulani, including high-energy activities like zip lining and surfing, as well as bus tours and opportunities to visit Pearl Harbor. We mixed in some off-property adventures with our chill poolside days and it was a perfect mix!  A third-party company manages these, and you can book online or over the phone. They also have a desk at the resort and you can be a bit more spontaneous and see what's available when you arrive. 
    I hope this information is just what you need for your perfect Hawaiian vacation, Russell! Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing trip with plenty of shave ice, sunshine, and core memories with your own 'Ohana. Please don't hesitate to reach out directly if you have any other questions about Aulani or DVC--thanks again for stopping by planDisney!
