Details dazzle me.
I love nothing more than to discover Disney secrets in the details of the resorts and parks. I get especially excited when something tells a story. There are so many well thought out elements to Disney's Aulani resort that you could spend days uncovering them!
One afternoon, my husband and I were sitting near the lobby, enjoying the delicious trade-winds as they whipped gently through the open walls. The lobby, or maka'ala, is flanked on both sides by water features. The one closest to where we were sitting had a very creative element to it. There were several black pillars, each with a bowl on top that looked like small flickering candles. They also had a curve of white on top. My husband very astutely noticed that these white curves represented the phases of the moon. How exciting!
The moon phases were very important to Hawaiians. They have always been excellent navigators and the placement of the moon in the sky was a helpful tool. The moon also told them when to plant and when to fish.
From Fish Life:
|Hoaka Moon- not a good night for fishing|
|The Huna Moon- a good time to harvest root vegetables|
