Disney Vacation Club, a leader in vacation ownership, debuted in 1991 with a flexible, vacation points-based system rather than the traditional fixed-week timeshare model. Disney Vacation Club member families from all 50 states and approximately 100 countries have already discovered the joys of membership.
Overview: Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa Disney Vacation Club Villas opened in August 2011. This one-of-a-kind resort destination, located at the picturesque Ko Olina Resort & Marina on the western side of O‘ahu, jump-starts the way families experience the magic of Hawai‘i. Aulani features white sand beaches and crystal blue lagoons and offers hotel rooms and two-bedroom equivalent Disney Vacation Club Villas, in addition to seven acres of water-fun activities, an 18,000-square-foot spa, numerous dining experiences, and one of the largest collections of contemporary native Hawaiian artwork in the world. Most of the accommodations offered at Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas feature full kitchens, washers and dryers, and whirlpool tubs.
Key Features: Membership provides families with the flexibility to personalize their vacation experiences as their vacation interests change over time. Members and guests vacationing at a Disney Vacation Club resort can choose to stay in a variety of different accommodations, including deluxe studios, one-bedroom villas, two-bedroom villas and even three-bedroom grand villas at most locations. Deluxe studios, which accommodate at least four guests, include a kitchenette, queen-size bed, double- or queen-size sleeper sofa, and other amenities. Larger villas sleep anywhere from four to 12 guests and include a full kitchen, washer and dryer, king-size bed, queen-size sleeper sofa and more.
Members can also use their membership to stay at a network of hundreds of other resorts worldwide. When purchasing directly from Disney, members can vacation at other select Disney hotels around the world, sail with Disney Cruise Line, or take an Adventures by Disney vacation to an exotic location such as China, Australia or Central America. Or, they can stay at magnificent resorts, elegant hotels and historic destinations through Disney Vacation Club’s Concierge Collection.
