    We are visiting Aulani in 3 weeks. Since MagicBands are used as room keys & charging to the room only there, can I activate my new MagicBand for my use & also activate my other active MagicBands for other family members to use while we are there?

    Aloha, Jennifer! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney--I'm so glad you chose to make a return visit for some tips to make your upcoming Hawaiian adventure as magical as can be. I'll be your guide on this journey to where the sky meets the sea...otherwise known as Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa!

    I must admit I am a little envious of your vacation plans, Jennifer--Aulani is simply amazing, and I just know you are going to love it! Although you'll find Disney touches all around this Disney Vacation Club resort, Aulani was designed in partnership with cultural experts and Oahu-based artisans to create a tropical paradise that celebrates Hawaiian tradition and stories. There's a fantastic walking tour that showcases some of the stunning art at the resort and I definitely recommend it! 

    Aulani has started using MagicBands on a limited basis at the resort, as you noted. Currently, they can open your Villa or be used for payment, and there are plans for some cool features along the Menehune Adventure Trail in the works. If you have a MagicBand+, you may see it light up at certain spots around the Waikolohe Valley pool complex and the resort lobby! You can pair the bands you already have to your account and set them up for the rest of your family to use during your vacation--they are so convenient! 

    Jennifer, if you haven't looked into reservations for the nighttime luau KA WA'A, this is a must-do at Aulani. Our family loved this experience under the stars featuring Hawaiian food, dance, and song--my girls still talk about it! You do need to book this in advance and you can do this via the website or by calling the resort. 

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation with your 'Ohana, filled with sunshine, core memories, and a healthy dose of shave iceMahalo for sailing on over to see us again at planDisney, and please don't hesitate to reach out if we can help with any other questions!
