Frequently Asked Questions - Aulani
The following table outlines the size and view of all Disney Vacation Club villas planned for Aulani. Note that the resort is scheduled to open in three phases on the dates indicated. Individual villas / units must also be added to the condo association before they are available for booking using DVC points.
For all stays at Aulani, the State of Hawaii imposes a daily transient accommodations tax based on the number of Vacation Points required for the stay. The State requires that the tax be collected from the guest occupying the timeshare and is collected only if the accommodation is used. Thus, the transient accommodation tax cannot be included in the yearly maintenance fee paid by Aulani owners.
The tax is computed by taking one-half of the yearly maintenance fee, multiplied by the number of Vacation Points for the length of stay, multiplied by a tax rate of 7.25%.
For 2016, Aulani's yearly Maintenance Fee is $6.7913 per point. The proposed transient accommodations tax per point is
$3.3957 (1/2 of the 2016 MF of $6.7913) * 1 (a single point) * 0.0725 (tax rate) = $0.2462 per point.
A 7-night stay in an Ocean View studio during the Magic Season at Aulani requires 203 points. The transient accommodations tax is $7.14 per night, or $49.98 for the entire length of stay.
The tax must be paid at or before check-out. The amount of the tax will vary from year to year and is subject to change.
