We will see, it really doesn't fit in with the style of most resorts in Hawaii...but hey, its Disney...I sure they will have it all.

Rumor has it that Disney chose KoOlina because they plan on expanding the Kaleloa harbor and bring in a cruise ship. Additionally, there is a lot of vacant land in the Kapolei area for a theme park. They also claim they'll make KoOlina a more tropical paradise.

A few more details are here as well (as well as links to two previous articles that include a discussion as to why there will NOT be cruise ships at Ko Olina):

Personally, I think the design fits in nicely with the other resorts, and hopefully will kick off the rest of the development planned out at Ko Olina and Kapolei.

I think it looks just like the Marriott at KoOlina so I would think it will fit right in. Just a big bummer that they felt like squeezing in so many units. Yuck.

I thought the cruise ship terminal is still a go?! Katherine
