Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, joined forces with Make-A-Wish Hawaii to say Hauʻoli Lā Heleuī (Happy Halloween) to 20 wish kids and their families for the first-ever Aulani Wish Week.
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.
