Chugging along the path of life

If it was the only place in town maybe. But that's the point Disney built it for their Disney clientele. When you're not really into Disney you're not even going to look at it. If your kids aren't into Disney why would you want to take them to a place where you can pay for them to see them? As far as lagoons there's 3 lagoons there, Disney isn't the only one to get that. And to some, including my husband and I, that's a large con to us. My husband would have been bored to tears with it and much preferred where we were at and to be fair he was like that in Negril, Jamaica as it was more wading and not swimming. It's been a bit but Marriott at least the grounds that we saw was quite beautiful and Longhi's view so peaceful and the tiramisu pancakes divine!So why would non Disney fans go? It’s a super nice hotel, and the lagoons in my opinion have the best swimming of any Hawaiian resort.
There's also plenty of places you can get a water park. Actually the for rent by owner place we rented the owner had Wet N Wild tickets for us just for being guests although we did not use them. And no I'm not comparing Wet N Wild to Aulani, just giving an example.
What this thread is about is a Disney person going to a Disney place comparing their experience. But ask people who are just not into Disney if their choice was Aulani vs some other place and chance are they are likely going to go elsewhere especially if they get get hotel reward points. But that's fine because they are going to places that match what they are looking for. You call Aulani unique and I would agree but there's a reason why the other hotels are built the way they are because they are appealing to the masses which is what I was commenting about.
