Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, recently completed a major expansion project that included enhancements to the pool areas at the resort. In addition to creating a new themed family pool (Ka Maka Grotto), a new kids splash zone (Keiki Cove) and additional deck space for chairs and chaises, Aulani has relocated some of the poolside cabanas.

Aulani has eight poolside cabanas. Two cabanas are still located near the Menehune Bridge Water Play Area. These cabanas are ideal for families with little children that play on the Menehune Bridge.

Before the major expansion project, there were four cabanas near the Waikolohe Pool, Aulani's main pool. Those four cabanas have been relocated. Three of the cabanas are now in the new Ka Maka Landing pool area. The cabanas are close to the new Ka Maka Grotto, a family pool featuring an infinity edge and a misty grotto. These cabanas are also close to the new Ulu Cafe, a poolside venue serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Aulani has increased the number of cabanas at the Wailana Pool from two to three. The Wailana Pool has been designated as an adult pool for guests 18 years of age and older. Thus, the three cabanas at the Wailana Pool are not available to parties that have guests under the age of 18.

Each cabana at Aulani comes with a small refrigerator, a lock box, a fruit plate, and bottled water. There is seating for four inside the covered cabana, as well as two chaise lounge chairs in front of the cabana.
Current pricing for the cabanas is $325 a day. Disney Vacation Club members receive a 10% discount on the daily fee.

There are also poolside service personel attending to the cabanas.
No, they have been moved. Currently, there are three cabanas at the new Ka Maka Landing, two at the Menehune Bridge water play area (same as last year), and three at the Wailana Leisure Pool (one more than last year). By the way, the Wailana Leisure Pool is now an adult pool for guests 18 years of age and older, so the Wailana cabanas also have the same age restriction.
