That's good news for you, but bad news for us. I was really looking forward to seeing you again this year. Aren't you doing the 1/2 Marathon in January? And is Kevin doing the Dopey Challenge? If so, I'm hoping that we'll see you there. It depends on Guy's ability to train after his surgery next week. I tried to talk him into "just" the 1/2 Marathon, but he says "Dopey or nothing".
For you runners, there IS a half-marathon at HHI in February. No full marathon though-the town fathers feel it would be too disruptive to traffic and strain too many medical services. Some dedicated runners are going to keep trying, though!

I'm a little sad to miss being there for Thanksgiving but thankful it is for a happy reason!

Yes, we're both running the half in January. We'll see you there! Kev just doesn't have the time to train so the Dopey is a no-go this time. Tell Guy to take it easy though!!

Whoops! Sorry about that! Adding you now.

Anyone else get overlooked? Let me know and I'll fix it, thanks.

I hope everyone on this thread has a wonderful HHI vacation. I discovered the magic of HHI in October of 2011. It was a girlfriend trip. The resort was truly wonderful and I am looking forward to staying there again in spring of 2013.

My present trip report, Why Not Just Queue Up Another Disney Trip? (see my siggie), has several updates devoted just to HHI, Savannah, and Charleston. I took a ton of pictures of the resort, so I thought they may be of interest to some first timers!

They have no characters at the HH resort, just Shadow, the (real) dog.

The only meals they have are a BBQ and a Low Country Shrimp Boil. If they are having them during the time you're there, you can book it when you get there.
How can I find a schedule of when certain meals are served? We too are trying to plan ahead for may 2013.

It's been forever since I've visited the DISBoards so glad I did this morning.

We will be in HHI Oct 21-27 in a 1BR. This is our second trip to HHI. We totally fell in love with this resort our first trip. We are alternately yearly trips between WDW & HHI because WDW has become SO expensive, even with DVC factored in there. HHI is a fabulous alternative to WDW. So relaxing...it was actually a vacation!!

I would love any tips about room location, things to bring, etc. Also I would love to "meet" DIS*ers ahead of time so maybe we can connect when we are there. We are ME Andrea and DH Kyle, DD16 Megan and DS12 Evan. My kids would love to know if there are other kids around their ages that will be there at the same time too!!

We are disney fanatics, and big pin traders..I read somewhere that there is pin trading here...anyone?

So glad to be here on this thread for the next couple months!!

we will be there June 4-9, It will be my husband and myself along with son almost 16, his best friend 15, and our daughter who is 8 going on 20... We have stayed at Hilton head before in other condos but there is our 1st DVC stay on the island, only a few more weeks- getting very excited!

maybe we will cross paths during our visits!

Why did it just occur to me to check DIS for a HHI thread?? Anyway, we will be in a 2BR from 5/18 to 5/23, and spending two nights in Charleston before that. So excited! It will be me, DH, DD5, DS3, and my sister. We haven't been there since 2007 when my DD was 6 months old so looking forward to the trip.

We were going to do Charleston before this trip as my husband has a week and a half off, but my sister in law can't get the days. Bummer! It sounds like a great place to visit!

We will be there June 2-5 in a 2BD. It will be myself, DH, DD (5), DS (3), and my mom and dad are going to help with the grandkids. This will be my and my husbands second time to HHI DVC - we went the first time six years ago for our last vacation prior to my daughter being born. We are looking forward to going back. Only a short visit on our way down to WDW afterwards to stay the rest of the week.

For anyone that has been down the first week of June, are the pools and/or ocean warm enough for swimming?? Of course with the weather patterns we've had it may be a lot warmer this year than previous years (I know here in OhiO that seems like the case), but just thought I'd ask...

Not sure where we'll stay yet, maybe some small town 1-2 hours away from HHI. I want to leave on Saturday to at least get some of the 12 hour drive out of the way and be all set to check-in early on Sunday to start enjoying things around the resort.
