Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hello Moms panel,
My husband, 7 year old daughter and I are going to Aulani in Aug 2013. We are wondering if we should book Disney's ground transportation to get from the airport to the resort, take a cab, or do you suggest something different? Thank you

- Aloha Surita! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You, your husband and daughter are going to love Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa! I'm so excited to be able to help you plan your vacation to this magical place. At this time, Disney is not offering transportation for visitors to Aulani. This leaves you with a couple of options. If you are planning on spending all of your time at Aulani, you could arrange for an airport shuttle or just take a taxi. Do an internet search for shuttle service from Honolulu airport, and you will find many companies offering this service. You should arrange round trip transportation, which is usually cheaper than booking one-way with either a shuttle or taxi. Just be sure to check some reviews of the company you are considering, on a reliable site such as Tripadvisor.com. The other option, and one that we do, is to rent a car at the airport and drive ourselves to the resort. This gives us the flexibility to explore the island or make a quick run into Kapolei, the nearby town. One thing to consider if you do rent a car is that Aulani does charge $35 per day to park your vehicle if you are not Disney Vacation Club members. Aulani does offer daily car rentals from the resort if you just wanted to explore for a day here and there - a very nice option which will avoid those daily parking fees.
Please don't hesitate to ask me any more questions you have while planning your vacation to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. I would be more than happy to answer them for you. Have a magical day!
