Rooms & Points
Please Note: Our inventory chart shows the complete inventory for Aulani based on legal documents filed with the state of Hawaii. After 9 years, the resort has not sold out. Therefore, some of the rooms have not been declared for sale. As a result, not all rooms are available for members to book with points. DVC owns the undeclared rooms and has them available for cash rentals. The two standard view Grand Villas show up on DVC's website; however, they are never ever available. We do not believe these two rooms have been declared at this time.
Our Team's Shows About Aulani
Get ready to embark on a magical journey as we sit down with our beloved friends and core community members, Sandy and Thomas, who will share their enchanting Disney Vacation Club (DVC) backstory. Be prepared to get swept off your feet as they reminisce about their initial Disney experiences, and reveal how the magic of Disney sparked a passion that now sees them visiting Disney Parks almost every quarter. Episode 262
What are the three best studios in DVC? We asked our panel of studio staying experts to give us their top 3 studio choices. We asked them to focus exclusively on the room as we've discussed the resorts in numerous other shows. The themes that ran in our show were colors, bathrooms, and decor. Episode 224
Scotty Kaufman's love of Disney started when he was watching The Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color as an expatriate family serving overseas. Scott grew up on the island of Ohau in Hawaii and eventually married and settled in Orlando, Florida. Before Disney started selling Aulani, he transitioned from a sports reporter for the Orlando Sentinal to a DVC guide. His career took off with DVC, and eventually, he made his way to becoming a coveted dedicated cruise guide before leaving DVC direct sales to join DVC Resale Market. Join the conversation to hear his story and explain why Aulani and Hawaii are gems in the Disney Vacation Club portfolio.
DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there's something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.
