We're staying on rented DVC points. What is the latest checkout time we can get?
DVC points reservations are virtually never given late checkouts. I've been a member for over 25 years. It takes a LOT of time to clean villa accommodations and folks checking in always want their rooms early right? Odds are FAR, far greater to maybe, maybe get into your DVC room earlier than 4pm than getting a later than 11am checkout.From what I know, there is almost no scenario where you can get a late checkout if you are staying on points.
I'd only do this if nothing in your car (luggage etc) is visible (make sure it's all in the trunk, and don't open the trunk to get something out if you're walking away from your car).Agree with Jodybird - if staying DVC, there is not an option for late checkout.
We had a very late flight out and our last day looked like this: had breakfast at resort with Goofy, packed up our room and loaded our rental, went to North Shore for an early dinner from the food trucks and then spent the rest of the time taking in our last sunset from Waikiki. There's so much to still see and do, that you're bound to fill time.
With a place like this, or any DVC, it's unlikely you can get much of a late checkout. Best thing is to find out how to pay for one, or to book another night if you need a long day in the room. They need time to turn over the rooms really.I booked with regular money (not DVC points). How does one go about obtaining late checkout?
You at least have a shot at a late checkout since you're paying cash not points. Curious, are you booked into a DVC room? Or the Aulani hotel side? This could make a difference.I booked with regular money (not DVC points). How does one go about obtaining late checkout?
Another option is to book a spa treatment on your check-out day. It would give you a place to hang out at all day so you're not "homeless" for several hours, and you can go in and out of the locker room same day which is less crowded than the lounge. It would also be a relaxing way to end a trip.
There are the Painted Sky packages for those ages, but I can't discern if that's actually part of Laniwai Spa or not. It says its located just outside the spa? I don't believe those ages would be allowed to use the hydrotherapy gardens, but I do wonder if they'd be permitted to use the locker rooms. Might be worth a call.I love this idea, but I assume that it only works if you aren't traveling with kids? Anyone know if there are any spa treatments for 9 and 12 year olds?

As for late checkout, I would ask at LEAST a day or 2 in advance at the FD. Good luck!
