I'll continue with day 4, 5 & 6...that will finish up the Aulani Resort portion of this trip.

Day 6 will be a semi-sad day. We'll be checking out of Aulani today. I'm not sure if we'll hang around the resort to get every last bit that we can, our room keys are active until midnight after all. If we are ready to move on to our next home-away-from-home then we'll head out to our next hotel, which was one of the big changes I had mentioned a few posts ago. Originally I had booked us a studio condo on vrbo.com. I was happy with that decision and I felt comfortable with the owner. However the more I thought about it, the more I didn't like the added hassle of a condo...well at least for this condo. I started to look into other condos but none of them were meeting my strict criteria. Then I hit the jackpot. I decided to do a search on Expedia for hotels in the price range I wanted to spend. A few jaw dropping clicks later, we are now in a one bedroom right on Beach Walk, my favorite area of Waikiki. We'll be staying at the Regency on BeachWalk. They were having a sale & I got the room for a great price and it includes free wifi, which you never see in the nicer hotels. The rooms look gorgeous and the reviews are really good too. Plus, the location. I'm SO excited.
I'm not sure when we'll be checking in, but once we do, we'll most definitely be taking a stroll through Waikiki and have dinner at the famous, Duke's. I still have to call and make that reservation, as they do not take online reservations and they only take them a month in advanced. After dinner I'm sure we'll stroll around some more while I point to everything I remember and tell all kinds of dumb little tidbits about my past trip. Poor Matt.
Well, that's all I'll get to today. Next post will cover our time in Waikiki.
