More waitlist success! 2 weeks out and my Sunday night (1 bedroom) came through.
I had 2 nights waitlisted, and did each one separately. (the Monday night came through weeks ago) I don't think my waitlist would have come through had I kept them on 1 waitlist.

Does anyone have a recent activities list?
I have one from last week. I scanned it, but can't figure out how to post it. Would you like me to e-mail it to you?

Thanks to everyone for all of the great info and tips in this thread!!

I am curious if the lodge rooms are a separate booking category or is there anyway to request that section? We are looking for a 2 bedroom dedicated. Are there any of those units located in the lodge? If not, where would the closest units be located?

Thanks in advance!

Oh my, found our beloved thread on page 4. Not sure how that happened.

I need some updates of what all is going on in HHI. How is everyone's trip going or gone. I have been bad and still haven't gotten my pics off my Iphone to put them on here. Any body else have any photos to share. what about pics of the fireworks there.

Two years in a row, the fireworks were cancelled while we were there. This year the weather was good, so not sure why.

Everything Disney was wonderful! DSs and DH went shark fishing again. DS17 went kayaking. Not a lot for the older kids..and having the age span 13-17 they weren't too willing to be at the events when they saw it was all young kids. DS12 ran into the same thing as the oldest of that age group. They made friends on their own, tho.

My biggest complaint was with BikesToGo. I stupidly didn't know we could rent from DVC. The bikes we had were old and rusty and DS12's actually broke on the way back from the beach..and they don't answer their phones after 3pm. Still waiting to hear if they will refund. * We had to leave it locked to the General Store's rack and walk back.

*I left it to the company as to what refund would be fair, and they refunded the entire week for both bikes.

Unfortunately, no, the lodge rooms are not a separate booking category. All the villas in the lodge are lock-off studios and one BRs, I've never known them to be used as 2 BRs. The closest buildings are probably 13, 14, and 15 (in that order). But as is so often pointed out, it's a fairly small resort so you probably won't be too far away anywhere.

We're there now. The resort is fantastic. I needed a lodge room for the elevator. I requested one and was not assigned one, but i asked at check in and they gave me one in bldg 12. Unless you need the elevator, there is no advantage to the lodge. In fact, other areas are more centrally located. We did the pirate pool party last night and it was the best pool games party i've been to at any dvc. This is a great vacation. If you have questions let me know.

How much was the pirate pool party? Are there any characters at the party?

anniversary trip

We'll be celebrating our anniversary in a 1 bedroom at HHI from 10/2-10/7.

We haven't been there in about 15 years. Anyone have any experience with the weather during that period? I assume that the beach house and pools are open. I'm going to request a marsh view; anything else we should request, like a specific floor?

Thanks for all the info on this thread.

Party and games are free. There is a bbq buffet that is 20 pp for adults and about 10 for kids. The buffet starts at 6:00. The games and party start at 6:30. But you dont have to buy the buffet to do the activities. We didnt but the food did look good and i would next time.

Ok, thanks! I was just curious because VBR had a pirate dinner when we were there and Donald and Goofy showed up dressed as pirates. Oh well, I guess VBR is not as far of a commute for them as HHR.
