Yes. Here is a pic of the small collection of pins in the store. However, they have a "board" at the pool to trade with and they also have a "Bible" at the main building for trading. And, of course, some of the cast members have pins to trade.

You can remove me from the list on the first page. Our WL never cleared so we've made other plans for spring break. Sigh...so not happy about it.

It's not a huge collection, but, they do have a few.

They also occasionally give them out for prizes for answering the trivia question.

Thanks. It is disheartening. I was so looking forward to going back to HHI. We were supposed to go last October but had to cancel as I broke my foot. So I got on the WL as soon as I cancelled our Oct trip. Sucks when the WL doesn't work.

I'm looking for driving advice. We will be driving from NJ on Friday 3/22 leaving around 2:30 in the afternoon.

We are trying to decide if we should drive straight down I-95 hitting Baltimore and DC at rush hour or drive west and take I-81 & I77. Google maps says that 81/77 will be 1 1/2 hours longer, but I know they don't really factor in traffic.

Any opinions? Trying to decide if we should make hotel reservations in Roanke or Richmond.

thanks,

Did a nature sightseeing tour of the resort this morning with an excellent guide. We love this place!
We are now back home and will soon go into vacation planning mode again... We had a great time, what a wonderful place for a romantic vacation! While the whole week was colder than normal, we had no rain and mostly bright sunny days. We biked to the beach every day and played tennis most days at Chaplin Park. There are 6 courts available for free, and clinics are offered for 10$/hr.

We did a day trip to Savannah, very much worth it! We enjoyed the bus tour (we chose the blue buses which were slightly cheaper). We had lunch at the famous Lady&Sons restaurant in the city market (you need to make a reservation early). Excellent southern food, but I suggest ordering from the menu instead of going for the all-you-can eat buffet. We had green fried tomatoes and crab cakes.

We did not try any of the restaurant on HHI, we preferred cooking all our meals at the villa. Went to Piggly Wiggly for food, found it reasonably priced.

Bike rental was 30$ for the week, later found out you can rent for 20$ offsite. There is a rental store on the way to the beach house.

We participated in a number of activities, greatly enjoyed tours with TJ the naturalist and tall tales with B'Lou.

Can't wait to go back!

Totally agree and I'm am very glad you had a good time.

We were really amazed at the peacefulness of the resort. Even though we managed to fill about every minute of the week with some kind of activity or social event, you have to admit that if you can't relax at Disney's HHI then you just don't want to relax. We too will return, hopefully during a warmer week.

Thanks for starting this great post, it really helped us out!

Do you recall the name of the bike rental place? 5 people = $50 and maybe part of the cost of a potential meal at Lady & Sons. Was the food worth the hype? My kids love the Food Network and Paula so they would get a kick out of it.

Also, for anyone who has been in mid-April will the dolphins be around and is the tour worth the $$? If so, is it best to reserve through the resort?

Any other better rental prices for things like kayaks, etc.? Or better to just do a tour?

Thanks!!!
