Just in time for the anticipated fall opening of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawai’i, Disney*Pixar Studios are releasing a movie short with the release of “Cars 2”. The short, “Hawaiian Vacation” includes the Toy Story 3 characters and inspiration on how to have your own Hawaii vacation at home. Here’s a teasear on this cute, Hawaii inspired movie short. “Cars 2” opens in theaters this summer.
Set in new owner Bonnie’s bedroom, “Hawaiian Vacation” features Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) and Buzz (voice of Tim Allen) and the rest of the favorite “Toy Story 3” toys as they create the ultimate Hawaiian vacation for Ken (voice of Michael Keaton) and Barbie (voice of Jodi Benson). It seems Ken badly miscalculated their travel arrangements, so the gang has to create a dream getaway in Bonnie’s Midwestern bedroom—in the middle of winter. “Hawaiian Vacation” also features the voices of Joan Cusack, Wallace Shawn, Don Rickles, Estelle Harris, Blake Clark, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Kristen Schaal, Jeff Garlin and John Ratzenberger.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit Ko Olina on a previous visit to Oahu and it was just before ground broke for Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa. I can’t wait to see this Disney resort set on the shores of a Hawaii beach.
