In previous articles, we've looked at planning a trip to Aulani, Disney’s resort in Ko Olina, O’ahu, and how to enjoy yourself at the resort.

Once you're at Aulani, you may be wondering where there is to do. Happily, it turns out that there are plenty of activities to enjoy at Aulani -- some an extra charge, and some free. More ...

Planning a Trip to Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa: A Disney Destination Review by Cheryl Pendry on 02-27-2014

Halloween at Disney Parks Around the Globe: Disney Parks at the Holidays by Cheryl Pendry on 09-20-2013

       TIP

"When I go on trips, I usually pack two pairs of shoes: broken in tennis shoes, and Crocs. I know, they're not attractive, but I can literally walk across Disney for days without my feat hurting at all. I once covered two cities in Italy in my Crocs in the same day, and my feet were only tired, not hurting or bruised or blistered! And, they even sell Crocs at Disney! So you can get Mickey Crocs! I will give a bit of warning (and this is why I have the second pair of shoes), Crocs have ZERO traction in the rain, and you can slip. So, I wear my tennis shoes when it rains."
