Kalepas store no longer has soda machines or hot coffee. They took them out.

I wonder if the new QS location is going to have something like the pastries and desserts? Hopefully it's going to be the second drink station location and have coffee. No coffee after the Oleo room closes will give DH a breakdown.


When is the QS set to open?

Another question: how much is the refillable mug? I have heard it is a different pattern than the ones at WDW. Anybody have a picture of it?

Silly question here: I know most pools in Hawaii are not heated. Are the pools at Aulani heated?

I don't know if the pools are heated, but they are a little cold for me on windy/colder days. Nothing I can't deal with, but DW will work to avoid much pool times if it is cold. DD12 doesn't have any problem with it though. I would estimate the pools to be around 80 degrees, but this is comparing to my memories of pool temperature as a kid when I had daily access to one.

We are planning a trip to WDW. Never been there and just looking for an inexpensive place to stay for our family of 5. Dont think we will spend much time in the room. Would we be allowed to book a room that sleeps 4? They seem to be quite a bit less expensive.

I've never seen a pool in Hawaii that was heated, except by the sun.

The second post in this thread has a picture of the mugs

In November, the pools were freezing. The ocean was warmer!

If the pools aren't heated that's probably why I read that the hot tubs were overcrowded with kids recently.

The pools and ocean temp were pretty similar when we were just there- except in the morning- the lazy river was freezing before it got really hot out! I think cause it was so shady along it?

One thing to know, esp to warn your kids, if you do rainbow reef it is COLD. Both my DH and DD were shivering and neither had complained prior about any water temp on the trip, whereas me and DS whined a lot more lol. The CM there said its kept at a lower temp then the pools. we heard many people saying how cold it was when we were observing.

That was definitely the reason. The pools were so cold. The kids were freezing, yet the air was fine. I'm sure they make enough money to heat the pools. Even a few degrees warmer would have been tolerable.

We just got back and even if it wasn't heated, the lazy river and pool were very comfortable. We also did not have an issue with kids in the hot tubs especially the two tiered one overlooking the ocean. During our week there, we never felt crowded in the hot tubs

We just got back on 4/23/13 and thought the water temp in the pool & lazy river to be comfortable. There was one day that was very windy & the air temp was chilly, so we hunkered down in the water to keep warm while our 3 yr old swam. I'm always amazed at how kids will swim no matter what the temp!

No problems with kids crowding the hot tubs either.

I'm in a family of 7 looking to get 2 villas at Aulani in January (not DVC owners, we would be hopefully renting (a lot) of points).

Any adults have experience with the queen sofa bed in the living room? In one suite, a pair of 3 year-old kiddos might get the master bedroom since their bedtime is early and mom and dad will still want to be on the lanai/living room/kitchen. So they might get stuck on the pull-out.

Thanks!
