We were recently at VGC, and not only saw the pictures advertising Aulani in the airport, and the resort's elevators - but now the DVC vans transporting guests to the on-site preview center are wrapped in Aulani artwork as well. Never had my camera out and ready when I saw them - but they looked pretty cool.

Beautiful...

Wow, It looks amazing! Being from the east coast, an add-on (to my 230 BCV points), doesn't make sense right now. Howver, I hope to get the chance for a 4 or 5 night stay at some point at the 7 month mark. Does anyone know how sales are going? Prior to it being sold out, does it make sense that "developer inventory" will be an easier trade?

To all you Founding owners...CONGRATULATIONS!!

Fyi

When I called member services yesterday for December, MS saw I had Aulani points and ask when we were planning to stay. She told me to make sure to book exactly at 11 months. I did not ask any other questions of how it was selling or filling up. Just a FYI for people.

Thank you for this info. I'm one who is hoping to get in at 7 months for early December 2011. I'd like to try the resort before we consider buying into it.

The problem is there is from August 29th (Open) to December 29th 2011 - there are only 119 villas (there is a nice breakdown at DVCNews.com here: http://dvcnews.com/index.php/hawaii-...ts-and-figures


Once Phase 2 opens, the number of villas more than doubles to 257 villas, and then in 2013 the number goes way up when Phase III opens (404 extra villas come on line). So eventually booking at 7 months shouldn't be too much of a problem. (in my opinion).

We bought there because we didn't want to worry about that.

Yes, I do recall that only one phase will be open - thanks for pinpointing the dates. I think what we'll do is have two back up plans - one would be to go after Christmas when the new phase is open or two would be to stay somewhere else in Hawaii. There are so many great resorts.

We've been to all the other islands mulitiple times but never to Oahu. I'm anxious to see what we think and also finally make a trip to Pearl Harbor.

Honestly, I think it looks ahead of schedule...every time we go out there, something new is done. And it's happening FAST. I'm not knowledgeable about construction but it is really coming along!

I have personally gone to that area of the Island and stayed for a couple of days in the past. It is gorgeous in its tropical essence and I know that DVC/and Disney will build a wonderful destination point for future visitors and owners. Enjoy your time in paradise Disney-style.

Aulani owner checking in! Thanks stopher1 for starting this thread. We're planning on celebrating 30 years of marriage at Aulani, but have decided to wait until more phases open rather than going on our actual anniversary (in December 2011). Being more flexible will also allow us to get a better deal on plane tickets for the family since air travel at Christmas time is typically more expensive.

I can't wait to see the trip reports of those who are Aulani-bound this summer and fall! =)

That's good to hear as we are planning on being there in September of 2011.

Aloha Everyone

We purchased Aulani points summer of last year and my DH purchased more as a surprise so we could spend 2 weeks a year in an ocean view. I just booked our first stay for Early December 2011. This is so exciting. We have tossed around the idea for a timeshare for several years and we came to the conclusion that if Disney builds one in Hawaii or French Polynesia we are in. Be careful what you wish for. About 8 months after we had that conversation there was buzz about Aulani. We couldn't be happier. Can't hardly wait to get there. Or at least see pictures of the finished resort to tide us over until our stay.
