You've definitely got me thinking about a trip. May I ask were there any resources (books, websites etc.) that you found especially helpful for planning? I would do Oahu/Aulani of course but probably another island as well. You're making a strong case for Kauai but love Maui too.

Fun to dream about at least! They need to add a smiley wearing a grass skirt and doing the hula!

Thanks for the lovely compliments- I did use Trip Advisor and Yelp alot- I also found a lot just by obsessively googling whatever place I wanted to go! On TA, I read the forums- the group that hangs out on the Kauai boards is a really nice bunch-

And yea- we all need to beg Cory to find us a hula dancer smilie!

I've been enjoying reading the Dismoms 4.....TR, and was so excited to see your thread/link for this one.
What a coincidence as, just yesterday, I was literally just looking at pricing for Aulani for next summer. Not too bad if I can rent DVC points for 2 studios, but I'm guessing availability could be an issue. I keep teetering on the decision to buy into DVC, and Aulani might finally sway me. Decisions, decisions....hmmmmm.

I agree, there should be a hula smiley face girl, but until then will stitch do?

Can't wait for the next post!

Thanks so much, I am very glad you like all the TRs! I really need to get over on that DISmoms one and post, I think- I really wanted to get this one up and running first, tho. And i actually have an old one from last November on here that needs one more post or two- it has me feeling a little guilty....and good idea! Stitch works!

Hi Cheryl! I like the way you think- planning a trip 5 years out! AWESOME!! You are even worse than me! I have been thinking of you- a friend of mine did a vow renewal onboard the Magic in June- she surprised her whole family- DH & 4 kids! Isn't that awesome?! I kept trying to find your TR for her, but eventually gave up- they managed to have an awesome time anyway, just imagine!

I guess I better get exercising.

I know, I am sooooooo bad, drives the family crazy.

I am certain that even though she couldn't read my thread, her trip was fabulous. And I have a big mouth so I am very impressed that she could surprise her family.

Tried to surprise the kids with a disney trip last year and they just groaned at me when I tried to wake them up!!!!

Great start... Hanalei is my favorite place. Hopefully, you hit all of my places on that side. Did you stop at brick oven pizza for lunch?

But were they excited when they stopped groaning?

The only time I was ever able to do a surprise was for Tyler for Spring Break in 2010- he thought I was taking him to PT while Tim & I were going to Disney, but he ended up coming with us instead. It was wonderful, but his reaction was SOOOO teenager! I think he said, "Really? Sweet....."

I can understand why Hanalei is your favorite place- it is definitely one of mine, too. I have wanted to see the pier since I was a kid, never knew where it was until the past couple of years! Do you mean Hanalei Pizza? No- we didn't eat there- but we did eat at lots of other places in Hanalei- we spent all of our time there after this one day- so I'm guessing you'll like my TR a little bit!

Yes, I'm loving your trip report. Hawaii is my favorite place in the whole world. It even ranks higher than Disney. We live in CA so, we go at least once a year.

I should have worded my comment better as Brick Oven Pizza is on the way to or way back from Waimea Canyon. It is pizza restaurant run by a New Yorker Family. I think someone in the family married a Hawaiian person and they moved to New York or New Jersey or somewhere back East. Didn't like it so, they moved back to Kauai and open the pizza place. The pizza is really good. It isn't New York style so, not the same. But they have a garlic crust that is really good. If you go back you'll have to try it...

I'm joining in a bit late, hope that's ok!!

I'm really enjoying your TR!!! My hubby and I are celebrating our 25th next year, and Hawaii is looking really good right now after seeing all your beautiful photos!

We're also seriously considering buying into DVC for our 25th anniversary gift to each other, so I'm enjoying seeing some of the other places we can go with DVC in addition to the parks. And since I live in west, Hawaii is very doable for us.

Loved your photos of all of the natural beauty that is Hawaii...including the shaved ice. Yum...macadamia nut icecream. That would have been my choice, too.

Can't wait to read more!!

Hi! So nice to meet you! And thanks for the extremely lovely compliments! My head's all big now, there'll be no liven with me! Which cruise did you take? I was thinking about doing that next time- but I can't get past the fact that Kauai is calling me back for a week just for it, but I really want to see Maui again and go to Hana and Haleakala for the sunrise....and then Aulani is on Oahu, so I'd need to go back there, too- SUCH a dilemma! I know that the NCL POA goes to Maui and Kauai overnight- but I don't think that's gonna be enough for me! It is SUCH a special place.....

You are welcome for the compliments and nice to meet you, too!

My first cruise to Hawaii was in 2003 with my MIL on RCCL's Radiance of the Seas and it was an AWESOME ship, so awesome that we went again in 2004 and took my DH that time! He liked cruising and Hawaii, but didn't like flying that far, so my we went without him in 2007 and sailed NCL Pride of America. They were both nice, probably preferred the Radiance a little (my MIL did for sure) but I would sail POA again! My MIL went two other times inbetween with friend's because she LOVES Hawaii! She is planning on winning the lottery and moving to Hawaii!!

I wanted to go to Hawaii on our Honeymoon 35 year's ago, but we went to Disney World instead! Of course then, there was just the MK and the CR and Poly resorts. We stayed off property cause we were poor! LOL We are celebrating our 35th anniversary in Disney World this year!!

Congrats on 25 years!!! I think DVC would be a great way to celebrate! Especially with them offering DVC members premium annual passes for 399 this Fall!

Love your trip report! I went to Hawaii back in 2007 & of course loved it. Looking forward to reminising thru your report and also doing some planning.

Taking my hubby (he's never been) in May for our 1 year anniversary. Hoping to stay at Aulani for a week before headed on our NCL cruise. Don't know if I'll be able to get a week in May at the 7 month window.

Can't wait to read more!

Finally got enough sleep after our trip to be able to access the DISboards and had to find your TR! You bring back so many memories of our honeymoon trip to Kauai DW and I took 30 years ago! Great pics and even better narration. I'm loving the stroll down memory lane and look forward to the rest! Thx podsnel!!
