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.
I can't help you with weather, but the pools are open year round. Make sure you tell them when you check in that it's your anniversary. Then watch the resort channel-



I had to watch this several times before I could get a picture. I was so excited, it's even OK that DH's name is spelled wrong. I think they also post birthdays, so tell them about those also.

Could not sleep so thought I'd say hello. Reason I can't sleep is I just learned that the offer I made on HHI points was just accepted by the sellers! I know, I know, I'm months from closing and deal can be ROFRed (been through this once - I own at OKW). I'm excited nonetheless! Plus it's a surprise so can't tell anyone at home. Well, thanks for listening!

Might not be going to HHI for a while, as we're already going to DW for 10 days on Christmas day. Still, can't wait to be there and meet some of you! I've been reading the thread trying to convince myself that I already owned enough point and that I could likely book a grand villa at 7 months off season. No use. You seem to be having too much fun!

That is terrific about the points! Hope all goes smoothly for you. Did you know that the grand villas there have fireplaces, and that the resort supplies wood? I remember a cute story a CM there told me. Points for a Grand Villa in February are supposedly very low. So she told me of a couple who comes every February for a few days and reserves a Grand Villa, just for the two of them. Apparently, she said, they don't have a fireplace at home, so they just stay in their GV and sit by the fire all vacation.

Congrats. I hope your HHI resale purchase goes as fast as mine did last year. Our offer was accepted 5/20/11. passed ROFR june2nd. We dragged our feet in wiring the money. Did that June 30 i think. Had the points not long after. I know I was in shock that it was less than 2 months from the time we decided to add on till when we had the points in our account.

Wow, I thought Disney took almost always a month to tell you that you passed rofr (but were faster to tell you that you did not). I have no idea of the current ROFR level for HHI. My deal is 50$ for 230 points, buyer pays closing, seller pays 2012 MF.

Help needed...

Hello everyone...

Just reading a bit on the board here... We are going down from 8/14-8/19.. We went for 2 nights a couple of years ago and only went to the beach and the pool.. it was our first trip there - and we were just "checking out" the resort...

Any tips on what to do and where to go would be great!

I saw some posting about a dolphin thing - is that through DVC? Also - do you know if they rent fishing equipment?? Any idea on bike rental pricing? Are there fireworks at the resort??? When we were there last time - it was 2 weeknights - so, nothing too exciting going on.. I remember games at the pool, etc... and a campfire....oh, and one of the afternoons we had rain But, luckily it cleared up for the evening...

We are driving down from NJ - looking forward to the trip - but, not used to "relaxing" - I prefer the hustle/bustle of WDW - but, hubby wanted to take it easy!

Also - if anyone has a sample of the activities sheet - I would love to see it!!

THANK YOU in advance for your help!!!!

Are you driving straight through or stopping along the way? We are planning ahead for June 2013.

We are heading down August 11th. I have a weekly activity listing for the week of July 15th. I don't know how to post it here but I can send it to you. I plan on calling the resort this week and asking for the activity listing for next week.

HHI is one of those resorts where you don't need to do a lot of preplanning. You should have wonderful weather in early October and you can spend your days between the resort pool and the beach pool.

I did manage to go to the beach house one morning right at 8am to see the sunrise (this was later October) and it was so wonderful to sit on the beach. I can't even express how peaceful it was. the beachhouse was not unlocked, but I found a way to sneak in through the garage.

There are pool parties for kids and there is story telling. I went on a girls trip so we went to Charleston one day and Savannah another day. Both of those cities were great fun.

I just booked our first trip to HHI! We'll be there in mid March.

Now I just need to change my trip ticker!
