Micechat wrote up an article about Aulani celebrating its two year anniversary if anybody is interested.

Snorkling and water tubing for the family is emphasized.
Aulani opts for Menehune over Tiki:

Haha, Savoy6, that sounds like a very good encapsulation. Only one way to be certain - to go visit and check it out.
I'm guessing that Disney's Aulani isn't oceanfront - I have not heard of any beaches associated with the resort.
The Atlantis built a new timeshare resort adjacent to the original. This has made it virtually impossible to visit the famous "movie beaches" of that part of the island without being a paid guest, although you may be able to walk from adjacent resorts if you are willing to spend the time and a little extra cab fare. In years past I took great pride in sneaking in to all sorts of things on and around Atlantis.

It is oceanfront, but with man-made beach/lagoons....actually, there are no mellow family friendly beaches on the west coast over there....it's always too rough!

Here's the beach / lagoon at the Aulani, I took this last year the morning after a tsunami warning and the beach was closed.
