Finally we ended up in a sample room (pictured above). It looked like a pleasant enough hotel room, with the furniture pre-distressed so you didn't have to worry about what your kids might do to it.
Here are a couple of details to show you how subtly Disney has woven together its corporate culture with the resort's Hawaii themes. This is the Hawaiian quilt pattern on the bed. Can you pick out the Disney touch in this close-up?
And just in case you thought there'd be no Disney anywhere. This was our favorite thing, a wooden Surfer Mickey lamp, available no doubt in the gift shop.
