Aloha New DVC Resort Vinylmation!

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

On August 29 a new DVC resort opens in Hawaii, Aulani. To commemorate this resort, Disney will release an open window 3″ Vinylmation.

It will only be available at Kelepa’s store at the Aulani resort and will retail for $14.95.
There was no official word, but with no word on LE and now markings on the box about an LE, we assume this is a limited released. Meaning it should be on shelves for a good time to come. There is also no specific word that you have to show your DVC member card to purchase this figure.

Disney calls this figure Menehune-inspired. Menehune are said to be a people, sometimes described as dwarfs in size, who live in the deep forests and hidden valleys of the Hawaiian Islands. I like the style of this figure and the facial expression is cool, but I would have also liked an Aulani logo on the back. What are your thoughts on this newest member of the Vinylmation family?

Actually, there does appear to be an Aulani logo on the back, it’s just hard to see because of the wood grain design. I really like this figure, though the double sets of ears on some VMs always freak me out.

Isn’t Aulani a hotel and spa+a dvc location, people can still book their vacation stay there or just eat at the restaurants and the gift shop would be open for any visitors to purchase the merchandise? I’m going to Hawaii for a few days first week sept and plan to do the character dining breakfast and pick up the vinylmation and hopefully some pins and anything else that might be cool.
