You will absolutely love Aulani. I was there last year for the second time, hands down the most incredible Disney resort anywhere, and I have stayed in them all. So many things to do, and the north shore of Oahu is incredible, especially the drive from Liae down to Honolulu.
There is a restaurant outside Aulani called MonkeyPod, quite good, excellent desserts. Also, don’t miss Ted’s Bakery on the north shore, their chocolate haupia pie is to die for. The Elephant food truck in shark’s cove is some of the best food I have ever had on the islands. Oh, and you MUST find a Leondard’s Malasada truck or store. MUST!!!
