    Aulani construction notes

    Just finished a blog post about my latest trip out to the resort. You saw the pictures and he's more low down for you. The Tiki Outpost: March notes about Aulani and the Ko Olina Resort

    Thanks for the update. The story and pictures are wonderful. Good read.

    Observation. The lodging buildings look very similar to the Wilderness Lodge. Colors are different but gives me the same feeling.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Mahalo. To me, when I look at the buildings I am reminded of the peaks and crevices in the mountains along the Koolau and Waianea mountain ranges that make up the island of Oahu.

    They all have their pro and cons, but by far my favorite park was Tokyo DisneySea. The uniqueness of the culture (gotta love all the different flavors of popcorn available in park) in addition to the unique attractions (Journey to the Center of the Earth, storyline for the Tower of Terror, the Magic Lantern Theater, the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride, Caravan Carousel and my absolute favorite ride in any park, Sindbad's Storybook Adventure just to name a few), the detail of everything (Fortress Explorations) and the shows on Mediterranean Harbor just combine to make it my favorite.

    If I could chose any Disney location, it would be Tokyo.
