Hawaii Buzz: Disney to Expand Options at Aulani

Major news from Hawaii today: Aulani, Disney's Resort & Spa at Ko Olina, will be expanding some of its product options.

The project is planned to include an expansion of the Waikolohe Valley pool area (pictured right) as well as the addition of two new quick-service dining options. In addition, the Starlit Hui show, a family favorite, will move to a larger venue so more guests can attend.

Elliot Mills, vice president and general manager of Aulani, said that the resort has one of the most extensive arrays of recreational offerings in Hawaii, including streams and interactive play areas to its private snorkeling lagoon.

Scheduled to begin in September and conclude in mid-2013, the expansion is happening in conjunction with the final build-out of the resort. More specific details of the expansion will be available soon, so keep an eye on wwww.travelagentcentral.com.
