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 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

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.

Great updates! What a wonderful Christmas! The tour sounds fantastic and how smart of you to have the foresight to get the personalized brick. Very special indeed.
