If you wish, you can email me the photos you want posted and I'll them to the thread. I'll PM you with my email address.

I use Photobucket.com to post photos to the internet. Its a free website and all you have to do is set up an account that is password protected. The albums you create are private unless you want to share with others. Photobucket is fairly easy to use, and once you have uploaded your photos its extremely easy to insert photos in a disboards thread. You merely copy the IMG link that appears with each photo in photobucket and paste it into your post on the disboards.

Yes. I bought several hundred dollars worth of Disney Gift Cards at Target (5% off with Target card...yay!), and then used them at Aulani. The night before we checked out, we went to the front desk and had the CM apply all of the gift cards to our account. For us, this was easier than carrying the GC's around the resort and using them for individual purchases.

TY I wasn't sure where to ask! I'm buying them @ Target since I have the Red card

Better late than never, here are a few pictures of the construction as it was on December 6, 2012. There was no construction noise during our stay, and no impact to our enjoyment of the resort.

The main pool expansion area. You can see where the sting ray pool used to be:


Main pool expansion area. The small fenced area to the left is where I believe the new quick service food location will be:


Fence all along the "boardwalk" for the Ama-Ama addition:


The only walk-way down to the ocean:


Looking toward the J.W. Marriott property:

Thanks for sharing your photos, BobNed! In BobNed's first photo, you can see Cabanas #1 through #4 in the upper left hand side of the frame. The thatched roof building in the lower right is the Wailana Pool Bar, which will reopen once all the construction is completed in this area. The new kids' Splash zone water play area will be where the Makai Sting Ray Encounter use to be. The new infinity pool will be in the upper center part of BobNed's photo.

For reference, here is a photo I took of this area on September 17, 2012:

If given a choice, I might try to get an Island View Studio that is on the Long Wing of the Ewa Building. These studios have villa numbers ending in xx73, xx79, and xx85. You might get a peek at the ocean, plus you'll be overlooking the lawn on which the Starlit Hui is performed.

Have fun in Hawaii and let us know what you think of Aulani!

Thank you. We have modified our reservations and now have an ocean view 2-bedroom for part of our stay. Trying to figure out what to request for this room. Also wondering how do you know which 2-bedrooms have the long balconies?? Thanks again for the help.

By "long balconies" do you mean the non-angled balconies? The villas with the non-angled balconies are in the Ewa Building/Phase 1 wing (villas #xx50-xx59) and the Ewa Building Short Wing/Phase 3 (villas #xx60-xx69). The villas with the balconies angled at 45 degrees are in the Waianae Building Phase 2 (villas #xx02-xx13) and the Ewa Building Long Wing/Phase 3 (villas #xx70-xx86).
