    Hello! My husband and I are taking our children (son is 15; twin girls are 14) to Aulani in February! My one daughter is high-functioning Autistic. Does Auntie's Beach House make accommodations for those with special needs? We are DVC members. Thanks

    Aloha!  What an amazing vacation you and your family have to look forward to at Aulani!  Be prepared to fall in love with this very magical resort!

    Auntie's Beach House is a kids club providing supervised activities for children ages 3-12.  Since your daughters are 14, unfortunately, they will not be able to partake in the activities there.  However, the good news is that there are many other fun options available to the tween and teen age group. Painted Sky is a teen only spa/lounge  that offers daily and evening supervised activities, a yogurt bar, computers and teen-specific spa treatments-I'm not sure if your daughter has any sensory issues, but that might be something that she would enjoy.  There are also a myriad of family activities that take place each day from hula lessons to storytelling around a fire pit-an activity that we thought was great.  And of course, the Waikolohe Valley will definitely be a place you will all want to hang out...we spent many hours floating on the lazy river while trying to spot the Menehune-the mythical little characters who reside at Aulani in very unexpected places!  To help you plan, each day you will receive the 'Iwa, a daily activities guide. If you click the link it will give you examples of activities that may be offered.

    I hope I've given you some ideas for your daughter and the rest of your family to enjoy while you are at Aulani. Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel website, and please feel free to ask me anything else you may think of!  I truly wish you a wonderful vacation full of the Aloha Spirit that Hawaii is famous for!
