    View-I had requested a high floor and received the 15th floor. Because we were so high, we actually got an ocean view for the points of Island view. Depending on the night, we also got a great view of the luau or the movie under the stars.

    Good deal. However, I expect when Atlantis is built most of that ocean view will be gone for those island view villas. Enjoy it why you can.

    Even if Atlantis is built next to Aulani, the villas like #1575 that are on the south side of the Ewa Building will still have views of the ocean from their balconies. Instead of being able to see the ocean by looking straight out from inside the villa, you might need to be on the balcony and look more to the right.

    When Aulani first opened, some people were surprised that these villas were classified as Island View villas even though they had very good views of the ocean. But, apparently, Disney was anticipating that another resort would be built on the adjacent lot which could affect the views of the ocean. By already classifying these villas as Island View, Aulani won't have to experience a major point chart reallocation -- downgrading these villas from Ocean View to Island View -- once the new resort is built
