• Disney plans Hawaiian resort

    2010-07-27

    Those who are planning to engage in Hawaii travel may want to listen up, as Disney has announced plans to place their first non-theme park resort on the islands.

    The House of Mouse recently revealed its mega-project, "Aulani," a private resort situated about an hour from Waikiki on the isle of Oahu. Construction has already begun on the massive complex, which sits on 21 acres of beachfront property. When completed, the resort will feature 359 hotel rooms, 481 timeshares, a convention centers, restaurants, a kid's area with a lagoon and volcano and a 15,000-square-foot spa, among other amenities.

    "This is a very special project for us," said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. "It's unlike anything that Disney has done before; at the same time, it's very like many of the things we do."

    The centerpiece of the resort are the "Grand Villa" timeshares. These massive units, which are bigger than most Hawaiian homes, sleep 12 people in 2,300 square feet of space. All of them are located right on the Pacific, offering unbeatable views.

    Although Aulani will not open its doors until August of 2011, the company will begin taking reservations next month.
