We only stayed two nights because at AUD$3500 per night for our room we couldn't justify a longer stay. The kids loved the water slide, the rapids, the main pools, the Mickey shaved ice. We had no idea that the breakfast in the restaurant near the front of the resort was a tradition for Americans. If you go there it's nice to dress up as you get a photo with Mickey (and Minnie when available) to purchase. They have Mickey waffles for the kids. Don't over order as your family gets croissants and fruit salad as a complimentary starter. Incredibly expensive for what it is but it's Disney so you have to do it once just for the photos.
Cons for this resort would be the lines. Because it is so popular you have to line up to get a wristband to use the pool, line up for towels, line up for restaurants and snack shops. The pools are very full. It's fine because it's a huge family resort but could bother some people especially for what you are paying.
Our children wanted to make the Mickey Mouse ears on a headband (for AUD$35 each!) in the kid's club but unfortunately it was booked out 3 days in advance. It would be good for the hotel to provide enough bookings for the amount of kids in the hotel.
Apparently there is an amazing kid's club where you can drop the kid's all day but it was closed due to COVID so we had our kid's all day and night. The 9-12 year old kid's were happy to roam free though and there was so much to entertain them. I loved that there were life savers patrolling each pool.
Overall a fun resort. Very expensive but worth a visit.
Tropical oasis away from the congestion and normal tourist area.

The property itself and the area its located is more desirable than staying in the congested and overly touristy areas of Honolulu and Waikiki. we rented a car and drove everywhere and explored the island. At most 45 minute drives from most parts of the Island. Free daily parking for DVC members. characters were out and easy to get pictures with. Pool has 2 slides that were pretty good for a resort pool. Lazy river was on the perimeter of the regular pool and deck area. The food was pricey but good. Walmart and target are with in 10 minutes drive. Ko Olina golf course across the street can be walked to. Paradise Cove Lua was under a 10 minute walk.
