It’s been TWO years since I was sent to Hawaii to visit Disney Aulani as a member of the press. I miss is every time this year and this year has been particularly hard. Why? Because I’ve been to Disney World and Disneyland and it just doesn’t feel right to go so dang long without hanging out on the beach with Mickey. For those of you who weren’t following Celiac and the Beast when I went to Hawaii – here’s one post that recaps my fun time in Hawaii with Disney as a SheKnows Expert.
This whole flashback started because I was recently interviewed by Sarah of GFDF WDW on her DISNEY PODCAST! You can listen to the Aulani specific podcast here: http://gfdfwdw.podbean.com/e/episode-028-disneys-aulani-resort/

My final thoughts? Visit Aulani! While it may not be for those looking for non-stop rides and entertainment, it’s Hawaii, it’s beautiful, you can eat safely there, and there are still plenty of things to do at Aulani.
