DH and I were in Hawaii two weeks ago and took the tour. We are AKV owners. The place was truly beautiful. We were allowed to take photos of the actual room, but not the grounds. Anyway, I have done a piece for my blog all about it, photos included. Feel free to check it out, link in my siggie.

Is there a thread somewhere that explains, easily, what in the world is going on with Aulani and how it affects the owners? We bought June 1, closed the 15th or so and have received no paperwork. Our guide just says "things take longer in HI" but I can't help but think it is related to the whole Jim Lewis/ dues mess.

Things DEFINITELY take longer in Hawaii....we bought on the Members Cruise last year, closed in October and have received nothing - I inquired a couple of months ago and was told everything is slower there, etc. etc. We finally show up on the Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances as having our deed officially recorded May 11, 2011, so hopefully we'll recieve our deed soon!

Things are in no rush here...we are on "Aloha time" LOL!!! You'll find people drive slower here too LOL.

Looking at the price for the Arizona Tour, they quote $63. I wonder what that includes, since it's free to actually go to. (unless it includes other paying attractions)

We are going Sept 2nd we are SSR/BLT members!

NCL cruise

We will be staying at Aulani in Feb 12 for two weeks.

We did the Hawaii cruise with NCL a few years ago. It was our first ever cruise and we did enjoy seeing the different islands and the cruise was okay. After cruising with Disney it is hard not to compare but it is like comparing apples and oranges. The cabins are small on NCL, there is a charge for every beverage. We did not care for the "free style" cruising, there can be long lines for dinner and you get different wait staff each night. Would not cruise with them again after doing several Disney cruises.

I am hoping someone can answer my question, we purchased 200 pts at Aulani in January, would this not qualify us to be founding members. I called GS and they were not able to answer this, and directed me to the person we purchased from. We have left numerous messages for her but she is working on one of the ships right now.

There was a limit to how many points would be sold as founding member. If those were gone before you purchased, you will not be a founding member even though you purchased enough points. You should have received a document regarding founding member with your contract docs if it pertained to you.

friends of ours purchased in May (5 months after us) and they have picked their tile. I would really hate to miss out on this opportunity. Our intention was to purchase more points and be able to leave them for our children and grandchildren. It would be so nice to have something perm at Aulani with our family name.

Anyone have suggestions what I should do....I really hope we are not to late to pursue this as others have bought after us and they have tiles

Call MS again...call your guide and if they are unavailable ask for their manager. There is someone who can help you....don't stop asking!

Aulani tile

thanks, I will start calling and hopefully get some answers....we are looking so forward to our first visit in Feb 2012 and it would be so nice to know that we have a family tile as a permanent fixture at Aulani.

We did the Alaska cruise in May and were a tad disappointed with the DVC desk. We had every intention of adding even more points, but they seemed more interested in selling to new clients than looking after existing members, due to this we didn't buy.

It would be great to add on points each year for our family, we will try again when in Hawaii in February.
