I haven't put much out on the Boards in the DVC section usually in the DCL section. They are a world of information, I'm hoping you dis'ers are a world of information also. Since this is my first time to Hawaii, it will all be new, but at least I'll be going to Disney and that will be my familar/safe place. Anyway I was going for some ideas for things to do while there. I know everyone will enjoy each area differently but I would love to hear all your sugestions and thoughts. Introduction. Me dvc owner, celebrating my 50th birthday but still a kid at heart, can't wait for the water slides and lazy river... DD co owner 27 DD Boyfriend 30 2 of my BFF 45 and 60 she is the only one that has been to Oahu before. So 5 in all at this point, there my be 2 more my DB and his wife. It will be a full adult group that are kids at heart. We love the parks and do all the rides all 5 of us. DD is a former cast member of DLand and is a current CM of the Disney Store. Keeping the magic going. I have reserved a dedicated standard 2 bed room for a full week of sun, fun and relaxation. So we should have lots of space and really no one will have to share a bed unless the extra two come but that won't be bad. I also have a rental minivan for the week. Ok, I know this is going to sound weird, but 3 of the 5 do not eat any kind of sea food, nor are any of us foodies so we are not there for the food. I read a few of the foods reviews that are not so good. Anyway we are doing this some what on a budget when it comes to food, we would rather go do things than spend money in a resturant. No one is heavey into snokling or divers. So that is not what we will be into. So here goes the questions, in no particular order. 1. We want to do the traditional dinner luau/show for my birthday celebration. What are your suggestions and what is the average costs? If you have the contact information that would be helpful as well. 2. We want to visit Pearl Harbor and see the memorial. What is the best tour group that you were happy with? 3. What other tours did you go on while you were there that you would suggest for an all adult group? Island tours, etc. 4. We plan on doing many of our meals in the room. I have stayed in DVC resorts in Florida before but not had as many people to feed. What it the pots and pans situation? one fry pan, one pot in a 2 bed room or is there more to cook with. We especially are going to do big breakfast's/brunch, skipping lunch, I'm just wondering if I need to pick up a cheap fry pan and pot at Costco with all our other food pickup items? Or will the resort provide more if you ask? 5. We are going to do a 1st day costco run, it there a regular larger grocery store near there area as well? and Walmart/target? 6. I know at the airport we have to schedule lei's and purchase them. What does the resort offer and what are the costs. 7. What types of events and activities are on property, the web site seems a bit lacking of what you can actually do and book at the resort. 8. Any ideas or suggestions for other things to do are welcomed. Thanks everyone.
