Yipee! Another Luryloo TR! Cant wait to see how the Hawaii trip goes, this is definitely on our bucketlist. But while i would love to stay at Aulani, i am not married to the idea and would love to hear your perspective.

Joining in!!! Love your TR's - can't wait to read more of your latest adventure!!

Too bad about the room view! I can see how you'd try to pretend it's the TTA track though! Maybe a little printed-out picture of Progress City would have made it a bit more convincing?

Wait...theres little tv's on the back of the seats on airplanes? We fly Southwest where all you get is a bag of nuts

Kidding! We did fly continental once and but immediately told the kids not to get spoiled with the tv and biscotti...When I was young I had to walk to Disney, with bare feet, in the snow...

Anyway, it was such a pleasant surprise to see your TR here and I have your "shameless bump" to thank for. I might have missed it since you stealthly snuck your first posts in the middle of the night.

Sorry about the view. If I squint my eyes (and I mean reeeeeally squint) on the pictures of your view, it almost looks like the Kennedy Center! (This is what I get for living in the DC area)

Can't wait to read more!
Ooh, I like that! "La-dee-dah! I'm swanning around the Kennedy Center, everyone!"

I dream of renewing my vows in Disney one day, so I can't wait to read about yours. I can only imagine how beautiful it was in Hawaii!
I highly recommend a vow renewal—even more so now that I've actually done one!

We were back in our rooms less than twenty minutes after we left the parks. That is tough to do on site at DW unless you are at the BCV and walk out the international gateway at Epcot.
So glad to hear you had a great time in our neck of the woods!

Exactly. And with Aulani being a once-in-a-great-while kind of destination for many, I guess it pays to save up for a better view.

That's interesting! I always love hearing that the younger generation shares our appreciation for Dick Van Dyke.

So sad to see and hear about your room/view! We had a poolside gardens view room and it was amazing. So sunny we had to shut the curtains to take naps, etc. We had a 1 bedroom for the 2 of us so more than enough space and closet room. Hopefully next time you go back you can get a different room!
We'd better start saving our pennies now! I can definitely see how one could spend an entire trip just at Aulani. It's very tempting to never leave!

I wish we had been able to stay at another resort so we could give you a direct comparison—that was the original plan. But at least I can share what we thought of Aulani vs. mainland hotels and other Disney resorts.

Great idea! Next time I'll print one out on clear sticker paper and slap it on the sliding glass door - LOL!

So excited for another lurkyloo TR... especially one in Hawaii! Can't wait to hear all about it. Already learning a lot and hope to put it to good use... someday. Can't wait to travel along virtually with you and Patrick.

Yikers... that is not a tremendous view. But glad you were able to laugh about it. Not cool that you get a pin for construction and others get two nights. Boo.

If I'm thinking of the same staircase in Italy (over the wine shop?) I had no idea that was an event option. Interesting...

Looking forward to more!
