We adore it too! Frankly, I think it’s the best of all Disney resorts. But the 11 month advantage does matter at WDW, in spite of whatever your experience has been.Ive used my Aulani points at every resort at all times of the year save (VGC & VGF where I have contracts) and would sell my Aulani points last if I ever had to liquidate. Absolutely adore the resort and its becoming more and more popular so the rental value is high in peak times.
I agree. And I would buy now if I loved it because frankly I don’t see the price coming down.I would argue that AKL had been undervalued until recently. I think its current price seems reasonable for a deluxe that offers much more than OKW and SSR.
