More controversy for Hawaii. Do you dream of vacationing in Hawaii with Mickey Mouse and the gang, or does the idea of it make you nauseous?
Today Walt Disney Parks and Resorts announced that they will build a resort at Ko Olina on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands by 2011. The resort will feature hotel rooms and villas for the Disney Vacation Club, a time-share division of Disney resorts. Hawaii has the distinction of being the only Disney resort that will not be attached to one of its theme parks.
"This resort hotel will give our guests another way to visit an exciting part of the world with a brand they trust," Walt Disney Parks and Resort Chairman Jay Rasulo said in a written statement. "We are looking forward to building a special family resort that honors the cultural diversity of Hawaii and reflects the spirit of aloha that makes this location so unique."
