may try a kayak tour but was planning on a larger boat tour for the dolphins. We really do want to explore the island more but also relax as well. June can't get here fast enough for us!!

We wil be there 5/26-6/1. First trip. Me, DH, and 2 sons, 7 yr old and 8 months old. Got 1 bedroom on points! Would you bring your own bikes down? How secure is the resort? Cameras? Patrols? Places to lock up bikes? Crime on HHI? Thanks!

DVC SSR owner, If you have really good bikes, i don't advise bringing your own bikes. I have discussed this with my DH as we have bike racks and everything we need to take our bikes. My family (DH and boys) race BMX and mountain bikes so we don't take the chance on ruining anything on them from the sand and salt from the beach. We rented bikes last time and they were good bikes as well but made for the environment down there.

We will be there week of June 3rd in a 2BR. It will be me, DW and DS37. We don't usually take DS with us on our trips because he doesn't like WDW. He really isn't wild about the beach either but a week of relaxing, reading, watching DVD's and of course eating some good food really appeals to him . DD32 is staying home this trip because she is teaching school then. Right now plans are for her to go to WDW with us in November, but she has a boyfriend now so that could change.

We have a 2 bedroom and a studio....all points (I love owning at HHI)
I wish I owned more! Every couple of years because I've borrowed from my HHI points I only have enough points for a few nights and I have to cross my fingers and hope for the best at the 7month mark with my BWV points. Another 100 HH would be great! Alas..not happening, but I live in hope. LOL

Like Tinks said, the salt can be bad for the bikes, we have pretty nice mountain bikes, so we rent. We just lock them together outside our villa, not attached to anything(locks-and baskets-are supplied if you want them). I find the Disney resort extremely secure, and I've not heard of any issues on the island, but I'm sure there is some sort of crime as there is everywhere. My girlfriend.s parents have a condo there and between her family, her parents and her sisters family theres someone staying there 3-4 months out of the year and her aunt lives there full time and she's never mentioned anything to me about crime..I've never seen patrols or cameras, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.

See you then! Those are our basically our dates!

I have worked in a field related to law enforcement/security for over 20yrs, I would characterize it as safe.

Count us in for a wonderful HHI trip this year! We will be there 9/3 - 9/9 with DH, DD, myself, DB and DSIL. We have a 2 bedroom room and hope to get as close to the main pool area as we can.

We have HHI as one of our home resorts and so glad that we do because we LOVE it. It is because of HHI that we actually joined DVC to begin with...I know that is odd for most folks.

This now makes our gazillionth trip to HHI and can't wait to be there again. I know the 6 nights will not be enough but we are sandwich'ing in our HHI stay along with WDW pre and post!

Hope everyone has a blast...I know we will...

We love HH and have a small contract there. I wanted to bring bikes last year and hubby said no. So we just rented them at the resort they have plenty and this was mid august. Hubby and cousin got lost and went on a 15 mile ride. Mike the pool guy is a wealth of knowledge about HH and Savanah.
