    We're doing 10 days in Hawaii in September! We're not island hopping, but just staying in Oahu the whole time. From what I've learned in my research, there's a ton to do so we won't be bored - and the resort we're staying at is gorgeous so we won't mind if we have to stay in one day either.

    We're also doing 10 days in Hawaii but in October! We're splitting our time between Maui and Oahu and spending 2 days in San Francisco on our way back to the east coast. What resort are you staying at on Oahu? There's so many options, I have decision paralysis!

    We're staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village! My parents are Hilton Vacation Club members and they graciously gifted us some of their rollover points from last year that were going to expire at the end of this year (thanks COVID!). There's several hotels within the village and we're staying in the Grand Islander. The pictures look absolutely gorgeous and I am so excited to finally visit Hawaii!

    I love Hilton Hawaiian Village. I stayed there on one of my trips to Oahu and it’s beautiful. We rescheduled everything with the wedding to this October. But never replanned the honeymoon. I don’t want to go out of the country right now. So I recently suggested that we just go to Hawaii for the honeymoon (which is also where FH proposed). The main reason is because both FH and I are in school for our doctorate degrees. Since Hawaii’s time zone is 3 hours behind us in Cali, we can sleep in late, do some schoolwork in the morning hours (if needed) and still have plenty of time to spend the afternoons/evenings having a good time on the island. He’s for it and I looked at flights. But now I need to decide on which resort. My trips to Hawaii have only been to Oahu. So maybe we’ll hop to one other island. I’m not sure but we need to decide soon. Enjoy!!!!!!

    Thank you!! I'm so excited and it's great to hear from other people about how nice the resort is! If you and your FH end up honeymooning in Hawaii as well, I hope you have a fabulous time!

    We’re doing a week in Mexico and then a week in South Africa. We originally planned to go to Italy instead of Mexico but they still had a long quarantine period when we decided to book.

    I’m hoping if we can get the time off I can surprise him with atleast 3-5 days in Italy when we come back from South Africa if their requirements have changed.

    We're spending 6 nights in the Virgin Islands. Our wedding is this friday and we leave sunday!! I'm so excited. This will be my first trip just FH and I because in that sense I'm super traditional. So even more exciting.

    It was *amazing* - I would recommend a Disneymoon to (almost) anyone!

    As far as tips, she's a little late in the game for most of my go-tos (or at least there's stuff that she may have a difficult time doing this close to her trip) - but:

    She should add that they're honeymooning to their reservations - it will show up when they scan their magic bands and it *can* lead to magical moments. Also on that note, they should get the "Happily Ever After" buttons - they're free and people (cast members and some other guests) will congratulate them, which is fun - plus it led to some great conversations with some other guests in line Smiley smile She'll have to add the honeymoon to dining reservations separately, I don't know why, that's just the way they do it - but again it *can* lead to magical moments. (More on magical moments toward the end)

    I also recommend wedding ears - because they're super fun lol.

    Hopefully, she made her dining reservations 60 days out, but if not, there may be some last minute reservations she can get. On our honeymoon we ate at Le Cellier (EPCOT), Be Our Guest (MK); Cinderella's Royal Table (MK, obviously); San Angel Inn Restaurante (EPCOT); Flying Fish (Boardwalk); Yak & Yeti (AK); 50s Prime Time Cafe (HS); Hollywood Brown Derby (HS). The only one I don't recommend is Yak & Yeti - it was only okay. I also recommend visiting Jock Lindsay's Hangar Bar at Disney Springs - super fun and excellent drinks and Tambu Lounge at the Polynesian - also super fun with excellent drinks. We also ate at a bunch of quick service places, and I recommend eating at food booths (I think Flower and Garden will still be happening).

    They should invest in Memory Maker as well - you get all of the pictures that are taken by photopass photographers AND all the ride photos for one price - but she should order ahead because if you buy it within a couple days before your trip or after your trip starts it costs more money.

    So. Magical moments. Cast members are able to give a certain number of magical experiences each day - but they don't come when you're expecting them. On our honeymoon we got: a free cheese-stuffed pretzel, a free churro, champagne at Le Cellier, the seating at Be Our Guest (they were telling people they could get them reservations for 3:00 and let us right in at 12:30 even though we didn't have reservations), champagne and an additional dessert at Flying Fish (note: there was another couple there - not wearing buttons, had taken wedding ears out of their bag and set them on the table, they were clearly expecting something - got nothing - likely because they demonstrated that they expected), and free champagne at HBD. We also got audience participation at Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor (currently closed) and at 50s Prime Time our "cousin" (waiter) was all "why didn't I get an invitation to the wedding and had his whole section playing along (to the point that one of the kids was like "should we have been invited" to his mom lol). I'm sure there are things I've forgotten too. It's not just honeymoons either - I got a Mickey Premium Bar free when we went for my mom's 65th birthday in 2019.

    I’m doing something similar. We are doing 5 days in Mexico right after the wedding and then 14 days in South Africa and Mauritius next spring. We postponed our big honeymoon in the hopes that we are more comfortable traveling further next spring.
