    My DS10, was granted a wish by Make-A-Wish Foundation and he wishes to go to Aulani, Hawaii. We leave in 5 weeks. I've been researching all the recreation and activities and he can't wait to learn to surf but does Aulani offer swimming with the dolphins?

    Oh, my, Jennifer!

    A trip to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa is sure to bring lots of smiles to your son's eyes as well as the hearts of the entire family. This resort is truly magical, with just the right combination of energy, peace, sun and the warmth of the Hawaiian people and culture. What a smart choice your son has made!

    We visited Aulani in August, with my 10-year old DS as well, so I can tell you what not to miss, to be sure! If you are looking for a Dolphin Encounter, the best choice would be Dolphin Encounter at Sea Life Park. To find this option, just click on "Excursions" on Aulani's webpage, then enter "dolphins" into the search bar. This will guarantee that you get to swim "up close and personal" with the dolphins, an experience which currently costs $109.94 per adult or child ages 3-12 years.

    All of the tours offered at Aulani are arranged by Holoholo Tours and Travel; Guests can book online or call (866) 814-3569. When I had questions about booking a Pearl Harbor Tour, not only were they answered when I called, but I was also given so many additional tips and insights into which excursions would be just right for my very helpful!

    Send more questions as you plan your trip to Aulani, Jennifer. I picked up so many tips regarding food, activities and more; I'd love to share them with you and your family so that your trip is simply...magical. <3
