Do you like it so far? My family is considering a trip for next summer, but don't know if we are better off just going without using Disney. There are no kids going, the youngest person going is me and I'm 19, so what are free activities offered? Thanks

First off my wife and I LOVE Aulani! We spent part of our trip in Wakiki which was nice but we enjoy Aulani much more. As far as free activities most of them are geared towards younger kids but as adults would enjoy viewing the fish feeding, there are art and culture tours, fitness workouts on the beach, and the menehune adventure trail is fun for anyone. The biggest attractions of Aulani are the pool which features a lazy river and two awesome slides and the rainbow reef snorkel lagoon ($20 per person) but a great experience.

Question What kind of beach gear is free to use?

Are there boogie boards available for use for free or is there a rental charge?

Have you noticed any signs of the upcoming enhancement construction? We will be there in 3 weeks and were told it would not start until 9/10/12.

At the beach, they have boogie boards, sand toys, and umbrellas to use for free.
