Disney's Hawaii Resort Completes Major Structural Work

April 22, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

Disney's presence in Hawaii reached another notable milestone yesterday: In a ceremony on the lagoon fronting the site of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawaii, local crew members from Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, Inc., joined with Disney cast members (employees) to celebrate the completion of major structural work on the Disney resort.

The event was a symbolic representation of the shared efforts of Disney and Hawaiian Dredging in building the new resort, which will welcome its first guests on August 29. The construction crew and Aulani Disney team met on the beach to exchange gifts – lei from the construction workers to the Disney cast, and Mickey Mouse ears from the Disney cast to the construction workers. As part of the milestone moment, Hawaiian Dredging "handed over the keys" to the people who will add final detailing, theming and landscaping.

Djuan Rivers, vice president of Disney Vacation Club and Resort, Hawaii, joined with Eric Hashizume, vice president of Hawaiian Dredging and Elliot Mills, managing director of Aulani, to bring the construction workers and Disney team members together to begin "adding the magic" to Aulani. They gathered on the sand to form the image of the trademark Aulani arch and then transformed it into the familiar silhouette of Mickey Mouse.
