Disney Aulani Poolside Adventures, the Magic is in the Water in Hawaii

The Disney Aulani not only has amazing details inside, like their restaurants and lobby they also have amazing details outside. In this post(if you couldn't tell by the title) we will be writing about the amazing pools and poolside experiences at the Disney Aulani. Located in between the two towering guest towers is Waikalohe Valley, the name of the pool.

The first of the cool experiences is Volcanic Vertical, an indoor body water slide, located in the main pool area.

In the Makai preserve guests can meet with stingrays under the guidance of marine biologists. This experience donates all of it's profits towards Hawaiian conservation research. 

Similar to the swimming with the fish experience at Typhoon Lagoon in Disney World, in Rainbow Reef you can swim with Angel Fish, Sting Rays, and Butterfly fish. This experience does require an extra fee. As the sign below says the water is very cold in the lagoon.

Throughout the resort there are hidden carved animals and Menehune(spirits thought to cause events in Hawaii). The characters tell the story of Hawaii and add to the overall feeling of the Disney Aulani.

The  Wailana pool is a quiet pool with a multiple spas/hot tubs.

Disney has strategically placed Disney characters throughout the pool area to entertain guests, without disrupting the tranquility of the pool.

As you can see there are many different outdoor experiences at the Disney Aulani and they fit in with the whole family.
