    Aulani Resort DVC Model Room Pics

    Disney has posted some pictures of the model rooms for Aulani Resort and Spa at Ko Olina, Oahu. What do you think of the decor?

    Re: Aulani Resort DVC Model Room Pics

    The look surprisingly generic to me? Or am I missing something?

    Yes and no. I would imagine they've had to be mindful not to make it overtly Hawaiian themed. I know that probably sounds odd, and there's more than likely dozens of hotels on the island that really sell the location, but I guess Disney wants to set its self apart from that. And no doubt there is the risk of going "too far" with the theme and the inevitable criticism from those who are against the resort.

    Personally I think the rooms look nice, but I agree, you might have expected a little more island style.

    I agree with you. I'm not looking into anything overly stereotypical or anything, and they do look great don't get me wrong, just seems they need a little...more.

    I'm not sure if I even know what I'm thinking of anyway.

    The Aulani models are opening in Tokyo.

    However, when VGV sells out, they might convert the models at DLR to Aulani.
