Hey everyone! I want to write this TR to both help me look back and remember how awesome it was and to help anyone that plans to go to Hawaii (either to Aulani or any other place on Oahu). Since we didn't stay at Aulani, this isn't very "Disney" but I figured it would be helpful as far as other activities you may want to do while there! I wish I had been able to read more about our honeymoon before we went! We cut it very close and finally booked and bought everything about a month before we went! Planning the wedding meant the honeymoon was knocked back in priority I guess. At first our honeymoon was supposed to be at Aulani. Well actually we had always planned on going to WDW until we decided we wanted a more relaxing vacation and September isn't the best time to go to WDW as far as weather. We also thought about DLR and staying at GCH, but we weren't really excited about that idea since we've been there so many times. It would not have stood out as our Honeymoon. So I got an email from Disney promoting Aulani and I checked it out. We were pretty set on that but once we checked further into it we just couldn't afford it at the time. We found a resort over half the price and I will say that we were not disappointed. We loved it 100% and had an absolute BLAST. Cast: My DH (Matt) & I (Ashley). He's 24 and I'm 22. I took him his first time to DL in 2007 and he has loved it ever since! We had AP's in 2010 but haven't been able to renew them since. His favorite ride is California Screamin' and he loves the corn dogs from the red wagon. My favorite ride is BTMRR and I love the taco salad from Rancho Del Zocalo. Dates: September 16-22, 2012---We left the morning after our wedding! Locations: Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu! We stayed there for 4 nights. Waikiki Gateway Hotel in Waikiki. We stayed there for 2 nights. Highlights: TURTLE BAY & it's 7 miles of trails to walk/hike. Renting mopeds! Grand Circle Tour of Oahu Snorkeling I got tons of pictures and tips. If you have any questions I may be able to help you as well since I've done so much research. Just let me know! So let's get started. I hope you enjoy my TR! Oh yeah and by the way.. I did start this TR over on the DLR side because I was going to add a DLR trip we took right after Hawaii, but no one seemed interested so I'm bringing it to where it can be used.
