Aulani - 2 nights credit due to expansion
 
Just received an email from DVC saying that due to the expansion during my upcoming trip, they'll credit me with 2 nights worth of points. (For me, that's 92 points!).

Was only mildly concerned about the expansion. But getting 2 nights free will certainly be worth it.

It'll be interesting to see which points they put back. I think I used points from 3 resorts, and can't recall if any of them were banked or not. I know none were borrowed.

I expect that the expansion work is going to be more disruptive than previously thought. Disney doesn't give back anything unless they have to.

It's hard to complain about a ruined trip when they reduced the required points for the stay.

:earsboy: Bill


On second thought, giving back points doesn't cost Disney a penny, pretty smart!

We got the same message for our stay in December. I think Bill may be right, but I hope not. Two nights free does take the sting out though.

WoW!! Good Deal!!

We are staying 4 nights and received the email giving us 1 night credit. I think they are going on the offensive with a good will gesture. Have to say, I appreciate this offer. :). Hopefully the construction will not be too bad.

LOL--I guess since John started a new thread I will post here too--I got the same email -- our trip is Oct 23-29. Interesting thought--we are only going to be at Aulani for 5 nights--wonder if it was a longer trip (say 10 days) if there would be a larger credit? In any event, I'm pretty happy especially since we were not planning to be at the resort all that much anyway--lots of day trips planned--it really is going to be a place to hang our hat and maybe relax one day while on Oahu--then we go for a week to Maui.

Staying 8 nights in a 2 bedroom in September and was offered 2 nights as well. This comes after our banking deadline so hope there won't be an issue with banking them.

Nice gesture on their part.

If I hadn't just booked the return flights yesterday I might have simply extended two more days.

I hear ya--I just bought our plane tickets last week. Oh well.

just got email for stay in November they are giving us $100 resort credit no refund of points

We were notified that we are getting a credit of two nights' worth of points for our stay from September 15-22, 2012.

We booked a Pool View Studio for 7 nights at 23 points a night (total = 161 points). Thus, we'll be getting a credit of 46 points. It will be interesting to see how the points are credited to our account. We have a February UY and we used 124 banked points from 2011 (which normally have to be used by 1/31/2013) and 37 current 2012 points (which could be banked into the 2013 UY).

We are going in February and have not gotten any notices, so maybe it will be done by then.

Will the work be done in January?

I have two stays scheduled. One for DW and I 9/03-9/09/12 and one for DD's honeymoon 12/14-12/20/12. I received an email for the September stay and a letter for the December stay with the announcement about the expansion. In neither notice did they mention any sort of credits of any kind. Sighhhhhh.

Does anyone know why some are offered 2 day credits and others are not? I've got a 2bed ocean view for 12/20 through 12/27, and while I received a letter, I wasn't offered any point refunds.

I'm wondering if it has to do with either room size or view. I guess I'll have to call member services. I'm most worried not so much about construction as I am with crowd levels. If there is no quiet pool, I assume the crowds at the regular pool will be overwhelming.

It might be that the major disruptive portion of the construction will be done by the time of your trip.
