    Hi! I am planning our first visit to Aulani for March 2017.We will be there for 7 days--is there enough to do at the resort or do I need to make plans every day for excursions off property? Do most activities need to be pre-booked or can a concierge help?

    Hi Faith,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. A trip to Aulani - A Disney Resort and Spa sounds relaxing and fun! There is so much to do at this tropical paradise.

    There are many activities and experiences right at this resort, including lush pool areas, exploring the Menehune Adventure Trail, and of course the relaxing Laniwai Spa! While there is much to do right at the resort, you might find that over the course of seven days, you want to book some excursions outside of the resort. Some that come highly recommended include an excursion to Kualoa Ranch or Pearl Harbor. Others enjoy snorkeling, sailing, Waimea Gardens, and the North Shore. You can find a list of the excursions from Aulani - A Disney Resort and Spa online. You might consider booking excursions for some of your days, balanced with other days relaxing at the resort. While you can book these once you arrive at the resort, it may be a good idea to book ahead if you can since many are popular. You can call 866-443-4763 for assistance planning your Aulani - A Disney Resort and Spa vacation.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Faith. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
