Disney Aulani Resort Reviews

The Aulani Resort is what they call Hawaii with a capital H and Disney with a lower case D. Heavy on the Hawaii, light on the Disney. But is there enough Hawaii to keep a picky teen happy and enough Disney to keep the world’s biggest eight year old Disney fan happy? Resort Details: Where it is: Aulani is on the island of Oahu, you fly in to Honolulu. This makes getting here easy, most major airlines have direct flights in to Honolulu. We came straight from JFK to HNL. The flight was […] Continue reading →

Disney Aulani Mai Tai

Didn’t think of Disney as having a signature cocktail? Then you haven’t been to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa on the island of O’ahu. This fun filled family resort has it all, water slides, lazy river, sandy beaches and killer Mai Tai’s. On my visit to see their recent expansions (fab new infinity pools) they treated us all to their signature Mai Tai. As I am now a cocktail blogger, and take my duties seriously, I had one every day of my stay to ensure product […] Continue reading →

This is a guest post by Gavin Doyle of Disney Dose-A Disneyland Blog. I have ALWAYS wanted to get this invitation, I will have to live vicariously. Unless you are reading Mickey, you know where to find me… 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Club 33 in Disneyland Club 33 in Disneyland California is one of the most exclusive places in the world. Entrance into the club is only granted to members who pay more than 5 figures a year. The club was first envisioned by Walt Disney who wanted […] Continue reading →

The article broke in the New York Post a few days ago. My inbox was flooded with friends asking me about it since I write so often about Luxury and Disney that I am the second Google search result on the subject. Of course I’ve heard about these gray market services. My friends at our country club are shocked that I pay full price for the VIP service offered by Disney at $300 per hour. No, it’s not given to me by Disney or even discounted. I pay it fair and square. Though […] Continue reading →

Don’t think you’re the “running type”? Don’t think you could ever finish a 5k let alone a half marathon? I’m here to tell you you can. My decision to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon was mostly based on a good reason to wear a sparkly skirt and have a girls weekend in Disney with my daughter. I’m not a runner. Neither is she. But setting a goal together seemed like a great chance to bond. To train I ran a lot. She ate brownies. In her defense, […] Continue reading →

Whether it’s your first trip to Disney World or your 75th (I might be getting close), the fireworks at the end of the night are a must see. I don’t care how jaded you are, when Jiminy Cricket says “”Pretty huh? I’ll bet a lot of you folks don’t believe that… about a wish coming true. Do ya? Well, I didn’t either. ‘Course I’m just a cricket. But let me tell ya what really changed my mind. You see the most fantasic magical things can […] Continue reading →

Disney is almost done with their largest expansion in history. That’s quite a statement since Disney owns, well, just about everything. We were invited to preview the new attraction at Disney World last month. It opens to the public TOMORROW. Even if you are jaded, have been to Disney a million times, or you’re one of those “we’re too hip for Disney” types, the new Fantasyland is impressive. Let’s start with the most important upgrade. Dumbo is a Fastpass […] Continue reading →

We visited DisneyWorld this week to preview the New Fantasyland, which is extraordinary and an entire other post. While we were there Disney surprised my three boys with tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It’s not easy to enjoy Halloween when you’re little and to you everything is scary. My littlest character even thinks the Winnie the Pooh ride is “kind of dark and spooky”. I was nervous. Was it really not-so-scary? Could a kid who finds the […] Continue reading →


Want to skip all the lines at Disney? Get an air conditioned ride from park to park that will deliver you backstage? Have your child star in the Indiana Jones stunt show? This is everything you need to know about VIP tours. Over the years I have been hosted on press trips with VIP guides and paid for them out of pocket. CNN recently did a story about the luxury side of Disney and got the math wrong on the VIP tour guides. They should have asked me. Go to the Disney website for the new […] Continue reading →
