Sounds great! Do you have any plans for excursions or restaurant reservations? We are going to the character breakfast on the 10th I believe and a whale watch tour on the 11th.

The whole extended family is headed to Aulani for Feb 18-25. There will be 12 of us staying in a 3 bedroom ocean view. We will be packed to the gills for the first part of the trip, but then we are getting an additional studio for one of the couples, so that will make things a little easier.

Going are my parents (the grandparents, and Aulani Owners)
My family - DH, Me, DD(5) and DD(2)
Brother's family - Brother, SIL, their daughter (18mo)
Other Brother and SIL
Sister

I grew up going to Maui, and haven't been to Oahu since I was 6 or 7. This will be the 3rd trip for my 5 year old, and the first for my 2 year old. I'm very curious about Aunty's Beach house and how it works.

I'm guessing we will be spending a lot of time at the resort, since most of us are staying an extra week at the Ko Olina condo's down the road, and that's when we'll do most of our sight seeing.

We are coming from the East coast, so it's going to be LONG trip. Still, we are very much looking forward to it, and are super excited to check out Aulani.

So far we booked the character breakfast on Wed. I have been to Oahu twice before and I am not impressed with Honolulu. We probably stay at the resort most of the time.
I am taking my 1 year old on a plane for first time! I purchased her a seat, but I think it may still be rough.

Do you think this is enough stress
We'll be there February 5 to 11. In a 1-bedroom Ocean View 5 to 10 and Studio Ocean View night of the 10th (wait listed for a 1-bedroom Ocean View for that last night).
We're very excited this will be our very first trip to Hawaii and naturally Aulani. Can't wait to get there and relax.
We'll be back to Hawaii in AprilMay when we do the Disney Hawaii cruise.

Does anyone want to join in for a meet and greet-maybe at the pool bar or something?

Hawaii Dreaming

My husband I will be there from Feb 8 - 15 as well. Looks like we overlap with Gina and her family exactly. Didn't know there were any other crazy Wednesday to Wednesday folk!

This will be our first trip to Oahu. We'd originally intended to rent a car, but my husband isn't really excited about driving, so we may just book the airport shuttle and play it by ear from there.

Let me know if there's going to be any meet & greets at the resort. I'll be there from Feb. 11-16th.

I plan on doing some sightseeing (I'm playing tour guide for 2 friends). But we want to hang out at the resort a bit and chill. We'll be in Maui from the 6-11 and will do a lot of sightseeing there.

Hey there, west coast folks! Yes, we were told that it was easier to book Wed-Wed with frequent flyer miles but it didn't really matter. We should meet up!

Meet up

And yes Gina, it would be great fun to meet up!

I think we may be doing the Kualoa Ranch adventure with Disney on Thursday. It would be the single most expensive 'shore excursion' I've ever booked, so I'm still a little undecided. I've been dithering since November. Better decide soon!

My husband really doesn't want to rent a car as work has been incredibly stressful lately and driving in traffic does not equal relaxation. All he really wants to do is relax at the Beach and float the lazy river, perhaps while sipping boat drinks. We've booked a private shuttle to and from the airport for $120 with Oahu Airport Express. I'll let people know how it goes.
