Aulani & DL to meet Santa Update 06Jul12 Page 10 Christmas at Disney
 
On Dec 27, 2009 after saying good bye to our Christmas guests (both families for four days), my DH looked at me and said that my idea of running away to DL and leaving them all to it didn't seem like such a bad idea. Lets do it.

So this trip was born, my parents are joining us and we will catch up with other family at Aulani.

There is currently a pile of things on top of suitcases that keeps growing, there are no Christmas decorations in the house:scared1: and no gifts purchased.

Our first week will be at the Hilton Hawaiian Village before moving to Aulani for three nights.

Then off to LA to the DLH to meet Santa for Christmas. We have eight nights with concierge. We are booked for the Blue Bayou for Christmas Eve and Storytellers for Christmas Day.

We love DL at Christmas tme, we know it will be busy. Our last trip was the week after Thanksgiving and we loved the Christmas spirit and decided that we would love to do Christmas ... so here goes

5 days to go:goodvibes

Mum from oz 12-04-2011 04:47 AM

Sounds like an awesome trip. Disney for Christmas! :santa: lucky duck! I hope you will review Aulani.

Thank you for all your kind wishes. Yes I shall review and report away. For the first time ever I am not taking a travel journal so I am planning to be a bit more digital this time around. I shall think some more about it on the plane.

Tying up the loose ends of two jobs is taking me much longer than I planned. I know and I am still on the dis. It is so much better than therapy. I think that my great idea of being on top of everything so I can get on the plane and relax is disappearing out the window. It might be a beverage at the airport bar that gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling:headache:

I tackled the pile near the suitcases today and I am so not as organised as I thought and when I looked at dd1's size 11ladies runners I decided she is just getting a new pair. I think DH and I need to tackle the task together tomorrow night. We plan to buy things while away and not take much.

But despite all this in five days I will be heading across the Pacific on my way to paradise.

Thanks for coming along with us.

Mia

I am loving your pre trip report. I will love reading your trip report to get over my post Disney blues. No more holidays until March 2014 for us.

I shall review Aulani with pleasure. I tossed and turned on this one but I could not be so close and not check it out. It is like a duty:lmao:

Thanks Ms Shuttergirl. I think it sounds pretty wonderful too! DL all decked out for Christmas was on the Today show this morning and even DH was grinning. A Disney convert that one. After such a long countdown this week has seen everyone get a little more excited and me wishing we had another week. Irony is a funny thing:rotfl:

Thanks Karen, we will enjoy.

I promise to be heavy on the Aulani, especially since it is so new. 9 days will be wonderful. Lots of photos and info. Have been checking out the spa and have booked a couples massage for DH and myself. We plan to search out all the nooks and crannies. DH and my dad will even grab a round of golf we think. My darling brother is organising this so you never know.:rotfl:


DH (SHOCK HORROR) went online to check Aulani out. Stepping way out of his boundaries here. He was quite impressed and stumbled onto the DVC. He is new to Hawaii. I have been before. I am hoping to convert him. It worked on DL and Europe. Oh baby steps.

I have ditched the shoes, new ones are a coming. Need to cull some clothes too!! Ala Moana here we come first thing on Saturday morning, maybe Friday depending on how well we travel. Planning on getting all my Christmas shopping done in Hawaii. Maybe a little more in Disney:laughing:
