The post with Aulani room pics, etc. has been added and linked in post #2. (Click on "Aulani" under Day 13.) There will be many more Aulani pictures coming up in the daily trip report updates too.

I'm going back to add a couple of extra pictures to Day 13 too. Then I'm probably done until Wednesday. The clock is ticking... I MUST finish before our next vacation!

Thanks for posting your trip report. We'll be visiting Aulani in September and I know that my trip report won't look as good as yours.

One question about Aulani: What was your room number? I'm guessing it might have been 710 or 712. I'm putting together a map of Aulani rooms and views, and one of the few things I'm trying to confirm is the exact location of the 1-bedroom and the studio in the lock off two-bedrooms.

It is 712. Have a great trip!

Thank you so much for the Aulani pics - your room and the resort look lovely. They should reclassify the room as pool view and then let guests be surprised that they have a bit of an ocean view rather than saying it is an ocean view and being surprised that you actually have a pool view!

That's what I was thinking too. Under promise and over deliver works better! I would haave saved the points and chosen a pool view or whatever the lower floor rooms are classified as had I known.

I think it was about 40 minutes from the airport. I honestly can't remember for sure. There is no Disney transportation. Most people rent a car because they want to explore Oahu while they are there. There are shuttles available to drop you off and pick you up if you prefer...and there are enough restaurants within walking distance to keep you happy.

Just adding the last few pictures to Day 14. There are a lot of pictures around the Aulani resort in today's post.

Okay avid readers (most of whom do not comment!), I have an update on the Maui rental car fiasco...

We got a bill in the mail yesterday!

DH called our CC company today to see if we have any coverage through them...we do ...sort of.

We have to notify them within 45 days of the incident. Today is day 47.

But we didn't get the bill until yesterday (and weren't sure a bill was imminent before we received it. Denial!)
We have to jump through a few hoops now, but we're still optimistic.

BTW, our CC has rental car accident coverage in every country except Jamaica and Isreal. What does that tell you? There is no way I'm ever driving there!

Very very cute how they say aloha. You almost don't want them to say it right!

Great couple of days again.

Sorry I have been MIA! I am all caught up now though. Aulani is beautiful and I would love to visit one day.

Thanks for chiming in, you guys! I hope to get some more updates added tomorrow. Tick, tock, tick, tock. On top of trying to get ready for our next trip, I picked up the Hunger Games books and haven't been able to put them down! I read the first two and better not get the third one until we leave on our trip.
