Annoyed by Disney Park Price Hikes? Invest in an Aulani DVC Contract

Everyone’s talking about the recent price increases for tickets to Disney parks, Genie+, special events, etc., and we all probably know how expensive it can be spending the day with your family inside the bubble of Disney Magic. So if you’re worried about future Disney park ticket price hikes, let me offer you an investment to consider – become a DVC owner at Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii.

Why? Because your stay at Aulani basically comes with included access to a Disney water theme park, at no extra cost.


Aulani Resort Activities

Imagine being on a Disney Cruise, but on land. We’re talking daily character experiences, two different water slides, several pools and water fountain fun areas for little ones, a lazy river, an incredible beach, nature and art tours, ukulele lessons, fire pit storytelling, adventure trails, Menehune hunts, poolside stories, and so much more! All. Included. Without any additional park, park hopper add-ons, or Genie+ expenses.

I kid you not; if you open the Aulani app right now, there are several dozen activities listed today, tomorrow, and for the rest of the week. If you’re wondering what there really is to do at Aulani, and hesitate, thinking you might be bored, then I highly encourage you to download the app and look into how much there is to do with your family at Disney’s Hawaii resort.

Pro tip: In order to enjoy the grounds at Aulani, the pools, slides, lazy river, and such, you’ll need to have a wristband for the day, showing you’re a resort guest. The colors of these wristbands change daily, but you’re eligible to get them on all days of your stay, including check-in and check-out!

Avoid Future Price Increases

Unlike the cost of admission to Disney World and Disneyland, if you’re an Aulani DVC owner, then your cost of admission to all of the amenities and experiences Aulani has to offer will never go up! Point calendars may change, and certain dates may be higher on the points based on seasonality, but the total number of points a resort can include in its annual point charts cannot change for the life of a DVC contract.

So your investment in a membership at Aulani secures annual Hawaii vacations for you and your family for the next forty years, without any worry whatsoever of future price hikes at Disney parks.

Now, unlike a Disney cruise, meals at Aulani are not included with your stay. However, most rooms have either a full kitchen or a kitchenette that you can use to prepare meals on your own, which you certainly can’t do in any Disney cruise cabin!

Oh, and all of the activities mentioned above (Disney character experiences, water park, poolside stories, and more) are included with your stay as a guest at Aulani. But what I didn’t mention is that, like when you visit any Disney park, there are also premium activities for your family to consider. Including the Rainbow Reef fish feeding, make-your-own Mickey ears, t-shirt stamping, hair braiding, ‘Ohana painting party, fitness classes, golfing, snorkeling, and some premium guided tours.


My point being – your have options for your points and budget for the future at Aulani that your might not have at other DVC resorts. Park prices and expensive park add-ons too much for your family? Then head to Aulani. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that for the life of your contract your family will always have a luxurious home resort to stay at, with tons of daily activities and experiences, character meets, a Disney water park, and so much more all included with the DVC points you use to cover your stay.
