Although I'm not the poster who's going in mid-March, we have been there twice. The first time the weather was in the low 70s and we thought it was perfect. Second year, though, it was rainy, cold, miserable weather. But we still loved it there.

We've gone basically the third week in March for the last several years. The weather can be all over the place, even during the same trip! But honestly, most days end up warm and sunny. Regardless, we've never regretted our decision to make that our spring break vacation site. And we've got reservations for the same time in 2013!

First Trip to HH

We booked a 2 bd during Spring Break, March 29-April 5. We will be there over my ds's 13th birthday! My parents will be going, along with my husband, sons 10 and 13 and daughter, 8.

I am not sure what we plan on doing while there, so this thread has been great for getting ideas! I know the boys will want to golf and I would like to do some beach combing, looking for sand dollars and shells.

It sounds as if there is a lot to do for the kids right at the resort with all the activities. Can't wait!

Our trip (first HHI trip) is coming up in just 32 days, but who's counting??

I had read about the low country boil and the BBQ that they have at the resort. Do they still do that? Does anyone know what nights those are on? We are hoping just to go and relax for a week (this is DS's first trip to the beach), and I'd love to do those dinners at the resort!

Thanks for any info you can give me!

The pirate is on Tuesday evenings and the boil is on Thursdays at the beach house. You have until 2pm to make ressies. They has from what I saw hamburgers, hot dogs, onion rings. Desserts. T hey do pirate games and then open the slide at night plus play music too.

Thank you! Do you happen to remember how much they cost? I was just trying to pre-plan it, budgetwise.

Thank you again for the info!

We are at HHI right now! For Labor Day week they have switched it up a bit and the Pirate BBQ is tonight instead of Tuesday. It's $22.95 for adults and $10.95 for kids (+tax) for BBQ chicken and ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, baked beans, cornbread, potato salad, cole slaw, watermelon and "all the trimmings"! We will be doing dinner on our own (I have two kids who are Disney adult aged but eat like the kids they are) but we are planning on attending the Pirate activities and pool party after.

The Low Country Boil is still on Thursday and is $24.95/$9.95 for boiled shrimp, smoked sausage, red potatoes, scalloped potatoes, spanish rice, gumbo, corn-on-the-cob, pork tenderloin, hushpuppies, salads and desserts. We are leaving Wednesday so won't be here for it.

If you call the resort, they will e-mail you the Activity Sheet for the current week. It is mostly the same week to week so can help you with planning.
