Aloha!!! (A smidge early!) We are Disney Vacation Club members and we are empty nesters!!! We LOVE Disney! We have only been members since 2009 and own at the new Bay Lake Tower. We will have our first stay at Bay Lake Tower in January 2011 when hubby and son run in Disney's marathon. We cannot wait. We really don't have to since we are going to stay at Disney's Port Orleans in November, only a few more weeks!!!

Well, we had a little Disney come to Chicago this past weekend. We were invited to McCormick Place for a Disney Vacation Club promotion...announcing a Disney resort in Hawaii!!! It is called Aulani! We bought enough points to allow us to visit Hawaii every 3 years! I cannot believe it! I've never been!!! We plan to go in Jan/Feb 2013!!!

After the show about Aulani was over, Disney surprised us all with a Disney Dance and Dessert Party!!! Wow! Disney does things BIG! We got up close to the characters, not too close because there were sooo many kiddos! They love the characters and the characters love the kiddos! They made every kiddo feel extra special!

Here are some photos...

Mickey Mouse!

Minnie Mouse!



The very fun DJ! He played the Cha-Cha Slide (is that the name?) and he played a great game of Simon Says with whomever wanted to participate. The kids were adorable!!!

It was a fun 2 hours, learning about the new resort and enjoying the dance party! The Vacation Club is great for us, we love it! It makes us take a vacation and we can use our points to go other places besides Disney...way cool!

Have a great day!!!



O how fun..loved looking at your blog..

The Disney resort in Hawaii sounds wonderful. A Disney dance and dessert party ... fun! My sisters love Disneyland, but I have not been there in over ten years. I'd really like to go.
