Aunty’s Beach House Cast Members Offer Long-Awaited Aloha
In one of the most anticipated Disney re-openings of the past two years, the return of the welcoming and creative children’s space known as Aunty’s Beach House brought such joy to cast members at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. Starting May 25th, the heartwarming cast members began again entertaining guests at the resort during highly sought-after reserved times.
Today, Disney Parks Blog shared the crew’s joy, interviewing those tasked with providing daily programming at the beach house. Offerings include complimentary activity offerings, scheduled in 90-minute blocks, as well as premium experiences with favorite Disney characters.
Said to be filled with stories of the family that once lived there, Aunty’s Beach House also ties stories of adventures into the narrative of the cast turned “youth activities counselors” or “YACs,” according to the Disney Parks Blog story.
Among the YACs excited to make his return was Hawaii teacher Val Bigornia who told Disney Parks Blog that he enjoys how “the children keep [him] young.”

During SURF’S UP, Goofy’s son Max stops by to surf, while Goofy teaches a bit about local Hawaiian fish. The experience also promises a Disney pals dance party, a definite must-do on our Aulani list!
