The First Day of ToaDmas

Card companies do it all the time — create new holidays — so why can’t we too?  Today kicks off the twelve day of ToaDmas!  Between now and Christmas the agents at Travel on a Dream will bring you ideas for vacation destinations.  Not only will they tell you about the destination, they will also give you an idea of what a vacation could cost you.  Disney vacations, all-inclusives, cruises plus land tours will all be covered.  We hope they help you with ideas for your next vacation!

Today we are going to Hawaii!  The 50th state in the United States, Hawaii is made up entirely of islands, with eight “main” islands.  We have had blogs in the past for Aulani, Disney’s newest resort on the island of Oahu.  While an Aulani vacation would be fabulous on its own, the excursions to the other islands can get pricey.  What we recommend is a cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line Pride of America followed by a relaxing three night stay at Aulani.

Day Two

Off to breakfast at 8am at Mahiki. We are greeted and seated immediately. Belinda from France is our excellent server.  She takes our drink orders and assures us it’s not Nescafe…phew.  By the way, there was decent Kona blend coffee in our room although I had stopped and picked up coffee just in case.  We are from Seattle, we have to have coffee.  It’s a religion here.  The breakfast buffet is quite good and there is lots to choose from.  Some things are a little saltier than I am used to but it doesn’t matter because you can go get something else as many times as you want.  The bacon was my favorite and all the fresh fruit.  They bring you a little piece of coconut pineapple cake as soon as you are seated and its really good. Way better than Ohana’s bread at the Polynesian Resort.  There are a few gnats and flies so if that is an issue for you, you may not enjoy the buffet or any of the dining for that matter. We heard several people quite put off by the bugs..I imagine they are worse later in the morning or when the winds die down.
