Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is one of the resorts included in the Disney Vacation Club collection. The Disney Vacation Club is a points-based timeshare program owned and managed by Disney.
Aulani timeshare resort is perfectly positioned on 21 acres of Ko Olina beachfront on the western shore of O‘ahu. This beautiful Oahu timeshare resort is a part of the Ko Olina Resort Community and Marina which features a championship golf course, shopping, sports fishing and is just a short drive from all the action and activity of Waikiki!
The Aulani timeshare celebrates Hawaiian culture, history and traditions. From contemporary Hawaiian art and design to a wide variety of recreational activities, entertainment, excursions and more, Aulani immerses their owners and guests in the legends of the islands so they can experience the true enchantment of Hawai‘i.
A recent major expansion included enhancements in the Waikolohe Valley pool area, additional deck space offering chaises, chairs and cabanas surrounding the new water features, two new quick dining locations and a new store Hale Manu featuring high end goods and gifts.
Aulani Disney timeshare owners can choose from luxuriously appointed studios, one or two bedroom villas, or three bedroom Grand Villas. Each villa at Disney’s Resort Aulani offers spacious apartment like settings with outstanding amenities.
What is the difference between purchasing an Aulani Disney Vacation Club timeshare direct from Disney and purchasing an Aulani Disney Vacation Club timeshare resale on the secondary market of timeshare resale?
If you purchased a Disney timeshare prior to March 21, 2011, there is no difference between your ownership and one bought directly from Disney.
After March 21, 2011 however, there are three benefits that do not transfer on the resale market:
Aulani Disney timeshare resale buyers are not eligible to use their vacation points to make reservations in the Concierge Collection (hotels), the Disney Collection (cruises) or the Adventurer Collection.
If you’re going to purchase a Aulani Disney timeshare resale you get all the other benefits exactly the same which include:
You can make your reservations up to 11 months in advance at your Home Resort – just like if you bought from the developer.
You can make reservations up to 7 months in advance at any other Disney Vacation Club timeshare resort.
The vacation points you purchase from a Disney Aulani timeshare resale can be used for reservations at Disney Vacation Club resorts, for RCI exchanges and Club Intrawest reservations.
You can borrow up to 100% of your points from your upcoming year but you have to use all of those points in this current year. You cannot put any of those unused points back into next year’s usage. So, if you’re going to borrow points you have to do it in this current year, borrow it from next year and use all the points you borrowed this year.
If you are going to bank your points, you can do that and bank up to 100% of your points into the next year but you have to do that in the first 8 months of your use period of this year and you have to use all your banked points by the end of the next allotment or the next use period.
If you are purchasing a Disney timeshare resale and the anniversary dates vary so that you have two separate accounts (in other words two separate Disney accounts) you can still use those points to make one reservation.
However, if you are going to make a reservation for a single day at a Disney property there’s a minimum of 10 points and you have to draw those points from only one account – you cannot use points from two different accounts for that single day reservation.
Disney’s Discounted Annual Pass
Disney Vacation Club Members Dining Discounts
Disney Vacation Club Perks and Freebies – one of which Aulani owners enjoy – when staying at Aulani, check out Germaine’s Luau—if you purchase an adult ticket, you’ll get a child ticket for free (and save $52)! You can redeem your free child ticket at the Holoholo Tours and Travels desk.

DVC Discounts on Recreation and Entertainment – These discounts range from 20% off golf lessons at Walt Disney World courses to free educational and entertainment programs for kids, available at most resorts.
Disney has a “right of first refusal” (ROFR) policy. ROFR is the option DVC has to purchase any Disney timeshare resale after a sales price has been agreed upon and a contract has been drawn up. Each contract must be forwarded to DisneyVacation Club for review. If the price is too low, Disney exercises their ROFR option and purchases the property themselves at the terms agreed upon by the Seller and original Buyer. DVC then becomes the Buyer.

Buying a Disney timeshare resale on the secondary market is much less expensive than purchasing direct from Disney because of the fact that the developer incurs marketing costs that are passed on to the consumer. It is the developer who sets the price on the retail market. On the secondary market of timeshare resale, prices are determined by individuals and current market conditions.
A timeshare interval should be purchased for enjoyment. The purchase of a Disney timeshare resale ensures that you will be able to vacation and spend quality time with your family and friends each year. You might want to think of it as vacation insurance for all your future vacations!
