Aloha from Hawaii!

Aloha forum members! My name is Len and I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. Planning on a return trip to WDW this Christmas after an 11 year absence! Really love this site and the people here are very kind and super friendly. I posted some photos of Aulani Resort in the photography section if anyone's interested...

Mahalo!

Thank you Vettelover! I really like the vibe of this group...very down to earth! I do visit other forums like MiceAge and WDWMagic, both of which I enjoy, but people here have been so welcoming.

Hey, I owned a '79 and a 1990 Vette in my younger days. Not vintage models, but I loved driving them!

SWEET!! I own a 65 but I muchlove ALL Vettes. And what's this "younger days" confused I am well over 70 and still way young enough to handle that Vette, wink

Welcome again, Len! I hope you enjoy the forum as much as the rest of us do. There have been a lot of changes at WDW in the past 11 years and that pattern doesn't seem likely to break anywhere in the near future. We're all happy to help you to navigate the ever-changing landscape of WDW! mickey

Welcome Len! Walt Disney World and Hawaii = My two most favorite vacation spots for very different reasons. Though I confess we have not yet been to Honolulu. We have only been to Maui, so our next trip (which we're hoping will be in the next couple of years) will probably cover more than one island. We may have to throw a little Aulani in there as well. Smile Glad to have you here with us!

Hi and welcome Len! I'm excited to hear how you like all of the changes since you've last been to the parks! Plus if you'll be there over Christmas I will be there only a couple of weeks before you, so I'll make sure to warm up the magic for you! wink

Mahalo for the well wishes RobynPrincess! Glad you'll get to visit the islands in 2017. If possible, see the outer islands too (I know Oahu and Waikiki is a must for most 1st time visitors). I live in Honolulu, but my wife and I bought a house on the Big Island in an area called Waimea. It's home to Parker Ranch, the largest privately owned ranch in the USA. Attaching a couple of photos from the neighborhood....

Hey JMed...I already love it here! The hospitality and warmth is amazing. I'm a veteran of some comic and toy forums and they can be brutal. Yes, the pup in my profile pic is ours. Her name is Juneau and she is 1/2 Siberian Husky and 1/2 Malamute.

Thank you alicemouse for your kind offer I may take you folks up on advice and help. I've been doing some pretty intense research on WDW prior to booking things. Don't think I prepped this hard in college...haha!

Mahalo TinsASL! I think you choose wisely heading to Maui first! I love Oahu, but it is definitely the most crowded and hectic of the islands. I would actually by pass Oahu and head straight to Kauai and the Big Island!

Watchmaker, we have at least one Aussie around here somewhere. Now that is a serious distance from Orlando.

Hey, Len, welcome. I will be sailing your way on the Disney Wonder next month, which will include a day each on Hawaii, Kauai, and Maui and finish up in Honolulu. I'm sure we'll love it. Hope you love our friendly little community.

I have belonged to quite a few forums in my time, and you will not find a better group of people than the ones on here. It is grownups sharing their love of Disney and nothing else. It was such a relief when I joined!

Your baby is beautiful by the way muchlove
