 Just one year after its grand opening, the 359-room Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, has announced a major enhancement and expansion. The project includes a new family pool that will feature a "misty grotto" theme, while the new kids' splash zone will offer an area resembling tidal pools. The resort also plans to add more dining near the Wailana Pool and a beachside quick-service eatery. For meetings, the expansion will include a new, larger event lawn. Work will begin in September and wrap up mid-2013.
