Aulani Excursion: Pearl Harbor

 by: Princess Diva American Flag on USS Arizona Memorial When you book a vacation at Aulani, there are tons of excursions and tours that you can schedule during your stay.  We had to choose carefully because we were bringing our 2 year old with us.  An all day hiking or scuba diving adventure just wasn’t going to fit for this trip (these are outside companies for the most part…we found that some of them had different rules than were stated on the Aulani site…check the company’s site too…more on that later).   We knew that while we were in Hawaii, we wanted to see Pearl Harbor (it’s the teacher in me…we have to do something educational on just about every vacation).  I was SO glad that we took the time to do this excursion; I could never have imagined the effect Pearl Harbor would have on my children.

2 Things Before You Relax at Aulani

Princess Diva continues to look at the Aulani Resort, a Disney paradise vacation! If you missed any of the articles on the Aulani, you can find them here. By Princess Diva I know that once you get checked in you are going to want to start your vacation in paradise right away, but before you do, let me give you two little bits of advice that in the long run of your vacation will save you time and money!  That’s right, a few minutes after you check in and then you can totally relax! Refillable Resort Mugs: We have talked about resort mugs before here on Tips from the Disney Diva… but maybe you are still asking yourself, should I buy one, or shouldn’t I?  Are they really worth the money for the amount I will use them?  You could argue either way at other Disney resorts, but at Aulani, they are totally worth the $18.99 that you will spend.  It’s a little bit more than a regular Disney resort. Before you...
