Disney Aulani’s Magical Grand Opening Celebration

The Ohana Mama family headed down to Ko’olina Beach last night for Disney Aulani’s Grand Opening celebration. The heads of Disney, Bob Igers and Tom Stagg along with Mickey and Minnie and a traditional Hawaiian blessing marked the occasion. With a mixture of Hawaiian sand, Disney pixie dust and an amazing performance by Kealii Reichel and hula dancers, the grand opening celebration was nothing short of magical.

We got back to our room after a fabluous party in the Waikalohe Valley to learn that Disney is also launching a cruise ship in the Hawaiian Islands! You can read more about Disney’s Hawaiian Cruise here.

Here are some highlights from the grand opening celebration…..




A rainbow started the celebrations, as only Hawaii can


The performers were exceptional and really brought on the magic

  2. Everything sounds incredible! Would love to check it out some day! Going to read about the Disney Hawaiian Cruise now :)

  3. They showed that on our local news yesterday. It looks like a great resort and apparently it’s even helping the local businesses and economy.

    I can’t wait to take my daughter to Hawai’i and show her all that beauty. BTW, that rainbow was awesome.

    Only in Hawai’i, baby!
