  1. Deb,

    I tried submitting this via the Feedback form, but always received a “socket error” message.

    First, love your site! It’s our go to for information.

    In clicking on the Free Aulani Resort Vacation Planning Brochure link, the page cuts off halfway through, and seems incomplete. Just thought you might wish to check it out. Thanks for all you do here, and it was great meeting you in March at the What’s Cookin with Chef Zakarian!

    Kind Regards,
    Kevin Morgan

    DEB: Hi Kevin. I tried it before I made the blog live and it worked fine. I will check later today.

  2. Just returned from my first trip to Pandora. Loved the theming, the rides , the food, but where are the AVATARS? Did i miss them in the crowds? Was so looking forward to seeing them.
