No. 1 Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Kapolei, HI
On Oahu’s western shore, the beachfront Aulani embraces Hawaiian tradition while making it easy for families to feel at home—from the bassinets and baby-proofed balconies that come with most rooms to the complimentary kids’ club. Guests can explore the private snorkeling lagoon, relax in the infinity-edge grotto, or tube through the caverns on the lazy river.
Parents Love: Private, naturalist-guided hikes through Manoa Valley’s bamboo forest to a majestic 200-foot waterfall.
Kids Love: The Starlit Hui, a night of ukulele music and hula dancing hosted by Uncle, the resort’s resident storyteller.
