    I am looking at the best way to get from the airport to Aulani? We are not renting a car, so we were not sure what other options there may be. Thanks!

    Aloha, Julie!

    What can I say, except you're welcome here at planDisney!  How exciting that you are planning for your tropical vacation in paradise at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.  Few things are as special as when the magic of Disney meets the spirit of Aloha, and that's exactly what happens when you visit Aulani.  We absolutely love Aulani and are visiting for the third time ourselves this summer! 

    Julie,  Aulani is about 45 minutes from the airport. There are a few transportation options for getting to the Resort, including rental cars, shuttles, taxis and ride shares, and public transportation.   Our family usually rents a car, as we like to have the flexibility to come and go as we like, but you certainly can use alternate transportation to get to the Resort. 

    Aulani recommends the Hele Hele Shuttle and it can be booked right from the Aulani website.  They also recommend Platinum Limousine Service which can also be booked from the Aulani website. Alternatively, you can take a taxi or ride share from the airport to Aulani and back. When it comes to getting from Aulani to other locations, there is a shuttle from the Resort that will take you to a few nearby locations including shopping centers. 

    If you want to go on any of the island excursions during your vacation, those can be booked with the Holoholo Desk and many of them include transportation.  I would call sooner rather than later as these excursions do book up and some run only on certain days.  These can be booked right through the Aulani website but if you don't find reservations for excursions or the KA WA'A Luau, give the Holoholo Desk a call as often they can find reservations for you that are not available online. 

    I hope this helps you, Julie!  Have fun riding the Hawaiian rollercoaster ride at Aulani!
