The week-long celebration built on the success of the Once Upon A Wish Party at Walt Disney World Resort and included a dinner party with Stitch and Angel, a Halloween dance party, and the resort’s famous Ka Wa’a Luau.

Aulani Wish Week culminated with Hawaiian traditions, delicious food, and enchanting performances at Ka Wa‘a Luau.

Since 1980, Disney has worked with Make-A-Wish to grant over 150,000 wishes – and about 150 wishes per year are to visit Aulani for a magical Hawaiian vacation. Because of that, cast members planned “authentically Aulani” surprises for the first-ever Aulani Wish Week.

“Our goal, first and foremost, is to help families create memories,” said Joe Medwetz, senior sales and services director at Aulani and board member at Make-A-Wish Hawaii. “We love to see the joy on the children’s faces when their dreams come true at Aulani.”

More Magical Make-A-Wish Moments to come

Disney is already planning more magical moments for wish kids at Aulani Resort, plus plans are underway at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort for a special Make-A-Wish celebration in December.
