    Here are some photo's from our room 982. It's a 1 bdrm in Ewa tower long wing Ocean view. Also, included a nice sunset photo from the pool area.

    I am so glad that I found this thread before we went to Aulani. It is so helpful. I knew exactly what room to request for, and pretty much know what the view would look like the minute I got my room number.

    Room 1680 is a Dedicated Ocean View 2 bedroom villa on EWA building. It is the highest floor, and at the end of the corridor. The view and the room are great. And since this wing was newly opened in Oct 2012, everything felt so brand new and barely used. It smells new also. Nothing to complain about the room at all.

    Sorry about the huge photo size.

    We had 2 balconies. One from the Living Room + Second bedroom. The other balcony is from the Master bedroom.
    Here is the view from the living room and second bedroom balcony.

    View from the Master bedroom balcony. It is sort of blocked by the Aulani arch. I feel special to be right in the room with their logo arch though.

    For those of you interested in construction progress, we have a good view of it from our room. During the daytime, we hear the "bee-bee-bee" sound of the trucks backing up. Other than that, and since we don't put our focus on the annoyance, we were not bothered by it.

    But if you are thinking about renting a Cabana, I suggest against it. As you can see,the cabanas are right in front of the work site. I wouldn't spend money on it.

    Made it to paradise yesterday after a very long flight from Chicago. Have run into several people from Illinois who had the same idea I did to escape the cold. Because I'm on a solo trip, my request was near the elevators and everything but not in a corner room (as well as a room above the 6th floor). This is the one time I'm glad they put me near everything but didn't honor my request for no corner room. This room is perfect, in my opinion.

    I'm in a 1 bedroom ocean view - 758. Attempting to post a few pics.

    Do you want non-dvc view in here too, or is this strictly for dvc rooms?

    I'll gladly take photos of Aulani Hotels rooms, too, so please post any that you have. I can't map out the hotel rooms like I did the DVC villas, but I'm sure everyone would like to know the kind of views that are available from the hotel rooms.

    First - YAY for that AP 40% discount! :cool1: Glad you got a deal!! Second, thanks for the construction photo - we are going in August and have rented a cabana :beach: for 2 days - but I agree that they're WAAAAY too close to the construction to enjoy for the amount they charge! Your photo really emphasizes how close it is - I will be sure to keep close tabs on the construction and if it's not finished by the time we go I'll cancel it.:worship:

    I'll be posting pictures of our 2 room view once we get home. Looks like it hasn't been covered yet.

    I might not be doing many updates for the next few days. We're getting ready to drive to Galveston to board the Disney Magic for an 8-night cruise. While aboard, I may have only limited internet access -- and I'm probably too cheap to pay for better access.

    Please post your photos and I'll update the thread when we get back home on 2/23/2013.

    Have a great cruise! We're doing an 8 night from Galveston in a couple months and can't wait.

    Thanks again for all you do for all of us on this thread. :surfweb:

    Have fun! :boat:

    While our room is a good ocean view, it is also way too close to the lobby side of the tower. Even here on the 10th floor, we have a lot of noise from the restaurant area at night. LOVE the fact that we are the first room past the elevator. It makes for a quick easy down and out.

    We went to Starlit Hui last night. Really cute and very authentic Hawaiian hula, but also very kid oriented for us older adults.

    ONealfamily - when do you leave? I'm here until Sunday. If you stop by on your way too or from the elevator, knock and see if I'm here! :) The last few days I've been out exploring but tomorrow I'm hanging around the resort, I think. I want to run to the Malasadas truck and then to Long's to get some Maca nuts to take home!

    diane - you are just above me a few floors and over a few doors! GREAT view!
