My husband and I will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary next summer and we have never been to Hawaii so we are contemplating a family vacation to Alauni; DH, myself, DD15 and DD12 (at the time of travel). The only Disney vacation we have taken is a Disney Cruise. I am looking for advice on Alauni and whatever details you can provide me. Do you book dining reservations like you do at WDW, are meals included like they are with the cruise, do you suggest eating all meals on resort or traveling off site? Completely new to this so I am looking for whatever you can provide. We are beach lovers more so than theme park, hence why we have not been to WDW. We plan to spend majority of our time on resort but would like to travel off site to visit Pearl Harbor and other parts of the island, perhaps even Maui if the price is right. Are luaus held on resort or would we need to travel off site? Would a rental car be suggested for the entire week or just for a few days when needed? Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
