We are not booked yet have to wait for the 7 month mark. But our plan is to be in Hilton head in a 2bd from Dec 24-27 maybe 28. This will be our first time there but we needed a little break from our two weeks in disney. So we will drive to wdw and stay there from 15-24 and then drive to hhi for the rest. We are really excited about it. My kids are 12,11, and 10.

Does anyone know if they will be doing the Shrimp Boil at the Beach House the first week of June? We missed it last August and was told it wasn't done in the Summer.

Hello all HH lovers! We went to HH last year in August for the first time and just loved it! We had a tough time this year deciding between HH and WDW. I would have never thought that would be a tough choice. We definitely want to do HHI in 2013 and are contemplating the kids spring break which will probably be sometime in April. How does this compare to August? Is the ocean temp too chilly to swim? I know it will not be as blistering hot as August, but did love those warm ocean temps. Do you enjoy the ocean as much in the spring or is it a bit too chilly? I saw there were many going this April and would love some thoughts. Also, is it difficult to get April at 7 months? I know it was real tough when we got the August week. I might have to be one of those HHI owners in the future or we talked about renting a house somewhere on the Island. But I think I would miss the DVC...gotta love it!

Smile how is the Shrimp Boil???

Can anyone tell me about the Low-Country Shrimp Boil on Tuesdays. Is it more fun with a lot of people? It would just be me, dh and my mom. Think I'll leave the teens out because they probably won't be interested in the food and just as happy to go off and choose their own dinner. thanks.

Hi Hoodedrooster -- we are there the same week as you. Me, hubby, my mom and two teen daughters.

I am joining your 'group' because I want to learn more about HHI resort, but we won't be going until May 2013. So I can't book until October of this year (hoping for a 2 bedroom at the 7 month window).

We only get to vacation once a year and we went on the Disney Dream last month for our vacation, so now I am looking forward to trying Disney's HHI resort next year. Thanks for all of the information. I can't wait to hear more

We just got back from HHI DVC last week, and it was a great trip. This was our third trip, and we find new things to do every time we go. We did the Dolphin Excursion and had dolphin jumping about 6 ft. from our boat. It was a great experience, and if you go on the one through DVC, they give a 10% discount on Mondays and Wednesdays. They still have the beach walk with the naturalist, but we forgot to do it this time. DH did the Pinkney Island walking tour with the naturalist, and he enjoyed it. We saw B'lou's magic act for the first time, and it was very good, and we also enjoyed his program of Tall Tales and Folk Music. There were a lot of people in the pool at the beach house, and we walked on the beach one afternoon...water was a little cool, and there were jellyfish and sand dollars covering the beach. We didn't spend time at the pool at the resort, but when we walked by, there always were several people in it. We had some very warm days, one day with a lot of rain, and a very windy day. Our goal was to relax and get away from work, and we enjoyed staying in and watching videos, reading and napping when the weather wasn't great. We had planned to do a day trip to Savannah, but we didn't get around to going. Oh, well, there's always next time. Our one regret is that we still haven't been there the right day for the Tuesday evening Low Country Boil. We spent only 5 nights this time, and we came home Tuesday morning. Oh, and the afternoon cranberry cookies were as good as ever.

We'll be celebrating our 11th Thanksgiving at HH this year!

Nov 21 - 25. Our oldest is starting college this fall so we've had to shorten our time but 4 nights is better than none!

Do you have a picture of the beautiful view you had last year? Building 31? If so, it's so beautiful there, you should post it so that everyone can see the lovely views from that building.
Hopefully, we'll see you there and maybe the 2013 half-marathon, if Guy's able.
