We just bought Aulani points to add to our Saratoga points. So excited and haven't picked a time to go yet.

Aulani owner checking in. We are going Sept. 7-10th with another couple and was able to book 2 IV studios at the 7th month mark. I own 50 pts but needed 2 rooms. I got the first room at 11th month mark and was able to get the 2nd room at the 7th month mark. We are going on a 7 nite Norwegian cruise around the islands from the 11th-17th.

We bought the 50pt add on so we could use it in the future every 3rd yr there and have 150 pts and be able to book at the 11 month mark. We had been wanting to add on 50 pts so where better than Aulani Can't wait to hear about Disney cruise possibly going there.

Sounds like a blast! Congrats on getting the pair of rooms and the cruise sounds like a lot of fun!

We'll be there around the same time. But I opted for the Pool/Garden view. I'm very excited!

Following along as well. I was wondering what the going rate is now for points & what the incentives are now (if any)?! We reallllly aren't in a position to add-on right now BUT we'll be taking a DCL Med cruise in August and I've heard that they sometimes have better incentives on the ships to add-on. We are hoping to go to Aulani in August of 2012 but it's too soon to know yet what the 7 month availability will be like for summer months. We try to go to Hawaii every 5 years so we're actually "DUE" this summer. We decided to postpone it a year once they announced that Aulani wouldn't be done until late summer / fall of this year. (DS's school starts the last week of August every year so we flipped Hawaii for cruise.) We usually only use studios and since Oahu is our least fav. island we'd only stay there 4-5 nights. I was thinking that 50 points would probably serve us pretty well if the price is right. Then I wouldn't have to worry about the 7 month window thing for next summer...

There is a story up over at dvcnews.com. The lazy river was full of water and the water park part was coming along nicely. 9/14 can't come here soon enough.

We don't own here, hoping go to summer of 2012. However I love reading about Aulani and completely excited about it opening. There was some good stuff on the Disney Blog page as well. If you type Aulani in the Search you will get a couple of good articles and a fun time elasped video of the contruction so far.

Can't hear everyone's experiences once it finally opens.

Congratulations to all the Aulani owners. Your new home looks beautiful!!

We are currently trying to get a 1 bedroom for the last week of sept or first week of October but waited too long past the 7 month availability opening to call for a room and they are booked up. Still playing around with our dates and will keep calling but I am not surprised, the resort looks lovely and we will definitely get there in 2012 sometime if we can't make these fall dates work out.

Looking forward to those first trip reports and wishing all of you with trips booked a great stay.

We added on our Aulani points on the cruise. They paid all the closing costs, gave a huge credit and other stuff. I'd have to dig out the paperwork but I think it was around $100 a point. It depended on how many points you bought. I think if you were to only buy 50 it would be in the highest $/point range.

Thanks. I guess $100 is pretty cheap for Aulani? Nobody has said yet what it's going for "normally" now and the price is not on the DVC website. That's so much more than what we paid for our SSR points...hard to swallow in a way...esp. if the price is even higher for only 50 pts. When you say you got a huge credit - do you mean an OBC on the cruise or something else?

Face value is $120 per point. I think we paid $108 per point for our 165 point add on when they opened up sales last July.
