Exclusive Merchandise at Aulani Resort
Beautiful beaches, relaxing pools and the Hawaiian experience are all things we look forward to when staying at DVC’s Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii. But if you are anything like me, shopping is also a must do activity. Bringing home souvenirs and keepsakes, especially when they are exclusive and one-of a kind is a definite must! And Aulani Resort’s 2022 merchandise is making me want to book a trip just to shop their new line.
Let’s take a look at where and what you can find this year at Aulani Resort.
If you are looking for a traditional Hawaii meets Disney shopping experience, make sure you stop at Kalepa’s Store. Roam around finding hidden Mickey’s throughout the store while admiring beautiful artisan items that celebrates the Hawaiian traditions.
From Aulani Resort logo products to Disney Character merchandise, there is something for everyone at Kalepa’s Store. But what makes these items extra special and unique is that mostly all the items in Kalepa’s store are exclusive and cannot be purchased elsewhere. Some of my favorite finds and must haves are Duffy the Disney Bear and ‘Olu Mel shoulder plushes. These little cuties are perfect for the kiddos to take along with them on their adventures. Make sure you take home the tropics by grabbing some ornaments and tumblers too. And don’t forget those Mickey Ears! The new 2022 prints feature pineapples, surfboards, shaved ice and plumerias on navy blue backgrounds and are a perfect addition to your Disney collection.
Bringing these special items home will remind you of your unforgettable vacation at DVC’s Aulani Resort.
