Chances are when you visit Disney’s Aulani Resort during the winter or spring, it will rain. Occasionally showers are to be expected, but what can one do when it’s a long rainstorm that doesn’t show signs of letting up. Thankfully, Aulani has several activities to pass the time when it’s rainy on the West side of the island. Here are 5 things to do when it rains at Disney’s Aulani:
1. Community Room DVD Rentals
The Community Room has a ton of Disney movies that are free to borrow. I counted easily over 60 DVD titles lined up on the side cabinets. Pick up some popcorn and candy from the gift shop and make it a movie day!
2. Menehune Trail (Indoor)
There is an option to do the indoor Menehune Trail for kids. The Menehune Adventure Trail is a scavenger hunt for children that is typically outside. Kids get clues on iPads and search for several hidden magical items!
3. Aunty’s Beach House
During one day when it was a downpour the entire afternoon, we sent the kids to Aunty’s Beach House and then went to the Olelo Room for drinks and appetizers. Aunty’s Beach House has a ton of games and activities for children. Sign up early in the morning to ensure space is reserved for your child! As of 2021 Aunty’s Beach House is closed due to COVID.
4. Ukulele Lessons
The Daily ‘Iwa will have a schedule of activities and usually, Ukulele Lessons are available during a rainy day. It’s a fun activity for families and since it’s always held indoors, it’s a perfect way to kill some time during a rainstorm.
5. Character Greetings
Aulani will move character meet and greet indoors or under awnings if the rain is particularly hard. Call the character line to find out the times and new locations for the character meets! While we were at the resort, Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Moana were available for character meet and greets. While it was raining they were held in the community room and the lobby of the resort.
Splurge and visit the Laniwai Spa.
Book a character meal at Makahiki.
