Since Celebrity would charge us for internet time ($59.95 for 90 minutes), I doubt we will access the internet while on board the ship. Once we are on land in Hawaii we'll use our Verizon 3G to get back to surfing the internet.

We'll get to Aulani on Sunday, October 5, and will stay until October 12. I honestly can't remember what villa requests we made. We have an Ocean View studio booked and I'll be happy if we overlook the Waikolohe Valley. I know at least one other DVC member who is at Aulani while we are there, but if there are others please let me know.

Once we are in Hawaii and have access to the internet I hope to do some Twitter feeds with photos. My tag is wdrl2 if anyone wants to follow along. We will also post to a trip report. And I guarantee that I will post a view from our villa here on this thread.

There are some new Membership Magic offerings for DVCers at Aulani and we hope to take part in some of them (see this article). The Art and Nature Walking Tour sounds interesting. Also, we hope to see the Starlit Hui show this time around. The Starlit Hui was on a short 4-week hiatus the last time we visited Aulani in September 2012 due to the construction starting up.

I know 12 nights on a cruise ship and 7 nights at Aulani sounds like a lot of days. But time goes by so very quickly when you are having fun. I just hope we have enough time to do all the things we want to do.
Have a GREAT time!!! I didn't realize Celebrity did a cruise around the islands. That sounds like fun to cruise for so long, tho we'll miss hearing from you while you're at sea!! I'm sure your OV villa will be spot on perfect!!! Can't wait to hear how it goes!! ENJOY!!

(Maybe I will get time to finish my TR while you're gone!!)

We arrive October 4th and depart on the 9th. We have the same room type and requests. We aren't "owners" but are renting for the first time from longtime owners and cast members from WDW. Have a great cruise and Iíll look out for obvious DISers. We will be the happy family from Phoenix, mom-in-law will have a scooter and a big smile! Iíll post or message our location if I have time when we arrive. Thanks for keeping this page going, itís been a real help in our planning!

Best floors/towers to hear music at night?

I have gotten so much information from the this thread. Thank you!
We would love to be able to listen to the music from our balcony at night.
What is the highest floor or lowest floor should one request?
Which tower?
Which room number endings should one request?

Thank you for any information!

Sorry if this is OT -- I tried to create a thread asking this question in two spots and no answers.

We're BLT owners and are thinking about trying to book a DVC stay at Aulani at the seven month window over Christmas break 2015. Do we have any chance of finding availability at that time, or is the 11-month window really required to snag Christmas break?

Any thoughts/experiences would be very much appreciated!

I know it's not the same but I recently booked at the 7-month window for Easter/spring break and had pretty much all unit types available. I settled on a 2br ocean view. I booked right at 8am on the first day of the window but even a week later, and even today, there were/are units so I think you have a decent shot.

I'm an Aulani owner. I purchased in 2010 and have been watching Christmas/New Year's since then. I did a booking at 8 months out for this New Year's. Christmas and New Year's seem to be the most popular times. I couldn't get a room for January 1 at 8 months out. Everything between Dec. 24 and January 2 goes quite quickly at the 11 month window.
