Next job is door decorations! Finally pulled out my magnets from last cruise to see what I can use & what new ones I need to make!

Go for it. You can have them call nw he does not suspect it.

We have the room number on our door magnets for oth cruises. I just want to cover the room number. It is a shame not to use again

Wow when i posted it worked! Sorry!

Also, be advised it says you can bring a swiss army knife as long as in the suitcase. We did have one in the checked bag because we thought you could bring. When our luggage was brought to the room there was a note in there from security (people that scan the luggage) telling us they were not allowed abord. We could pick it up after the cruise. This was on the Dream last year. It may be it depends on who checks it to. But we no long bring one.

Patricia - Again don't worry about fixing. Homework first right! Take care.

I know now that it is under 3 months the excitement is here.

You will have to tell us how the art of animation is.

I updated it a bit (taking out the Swiss Army knife and a couple other things)

The spa is wonderful and there is so much detail in the resort and yes we are planning to return in Sept 2013.
I'll second that. We put 600 miles on our rental Jeep in a week. Swam with sharks on the North Shore, drove all up the windward coast, and ate at some incredible restaurants. And we got out just in time, as the Kelli Ripa show was coming in to tape just as we were leaving.

The only downside is the available food at the resort itself. The quick-service places are uninspired, and the buffet is outrageously priced. I did see that Disney has heard our complaints and is adding two more dining facilities to the resort. We ended up keeping a bunch of food in the room from the little ABC Store across the street.

But the next time we want to go to Oahu, we will likely stay at Aulani again. I took a walk late one night through the grounds and just sat quietly and watched the surf and listened to the music and the water. Very peaceful.
