We are shopping ourselves instead of using Garden Grocer.

Aulani looks amazing! I have yet to read a bad thing about it except for prices but I think the whole island is expensive from what I've read. Ellen's trip report is sealing the deal for me.

I'd love to try out Hilton Head one day, maybe in a few summers when DH is totally Disney'd out.

Have you packed?

And the view from your previous room looks very nice for a standard room.

Aulani is amazing, the other DVC resorts don't even come close.

I'll join you in the DVC snobiness.

I think I can be a DVC snob too but I must say I have never stayed in a non DVC room....

You must have, with all the business travel you do, they don't have DVCs in all the places you go....

I didn’t expect to have another substantial update this soon, but yesterday we had quite a challenge! Something new with American is that they sent us an email last week telling us to choose our entrees for the trip. I had lagged on doing this because Fran wouldn’t sit down and give me an answer. Yesterday I decided that we better make our choices. So we picked our outbound flight choices. I picked the cereal and yogurt Fran picked the quesadilla with eggs, pepper jack, and a corn and black bean salsa.

Then I clicked over to the return flight and we had the same choices. WTH? We have a 1PM flight, why are they giving us breakfast choices?

So I click back to the American Airlines website and now our 1PM flight is departing at 9AM!

We are NOT early risers and getting on a 6AM Magical Express bus is not my idea of the end to an ideal vacation. Luckily it all worked out. I called American Airlines and they were able to get us on the 5PM non-stop to LAX with no additional charges. The funny thing was we had a choice of Filet of Beef or Four Cheese Ravioli. Both of us told the agent we wanted the Ravioli, but when I logged back into the website, she had selected the beef for us!

I changed our entrees on the website and then called Member Services to change the plane flight. They also confirmed that I would be able to use DME to get back to the resort when I returned the rental car earlier in the week while we are staying at Kidani. I always like to get multiple opinions on Disney processes since you never know if the CM you are talking to has the right information.

I figure if two out of three confirm it you’re OK. The one yesterday said they would send me tags for my returning the car trip. We’ll see, but at least we have the airfare sorted out. And that means we get an extra ½ day to have lunch at one of the resorts or something like that.

That is why we refuse to fly Delta! They did that to us without telling us. I only found out a few days before our trip & didn't have any options to change. We lost our last day in the parks.

I'm happy you were able to correct it!!!!

That really surprises me. Whenever we fly Delta, we get an endless stream of notifications of schedule changes and it is usually only a couple of minutes. The biggest change that we had was less than 30 minutes.

This was probably 4 years ago & we aren't priority members or frequent fliers or anything. It was horrible! They even moved us to one of those little commuters where you have to walk out and up the stairs! I was freaking out!!!! Then they put us on the back row by the bathroom with seats that didn't recline. Worst experience ever!!!
