I'm really not holding out much hope that it will come through. Seems to be a very popular time for DHHIR. Probably if we needed a 2BR it would be easier. But with only 4 of us, I don't want to spend the extra points.

I am happy your waitlist came through! I'll just keep hoping.

Now have 2 waitlists - neither have a Sunday available. Both May 26th & June 2nd. What is the deal with the lack of Sunday rooms? I have a Studio for Sunday the 26th but was hoping to move it back 1 day.

I'm betting its the point value change. Friday & Saturday nights are still a lot more points at HHI (close to double). So lots of folks check in on Sunday so they don't eat up those extra points on Saturday.

Exactly! We have a cash room booked on Saturday, March 29 (2BR) and our price is $249. If we wanted to use points, it would be 35! In theory, we could rent those points for $10 each and come out $100 ahead. The weekend points at HHI are a little ridiculous, especially considering how reasonable the cash rate is.

Wow! Are the cash rates for the 2BR cheaper because there are more of them? When I asked about a member cash rate for a 1BR that same night they quoted me over $350. I wasn't willing to pay that for a cash night for March as the one we had to cancel this October was only $148 total. We decided to forego the weekend nights and just stay 5 nights on points (if the waitlist comes through).

Wonder why the 2BR would be cheaper than a 1BR?

Ya know...I am still wondering the same thing...

When we booked our room, I did it at 11-months out. The season changes (at least on the points side) on April 1 so I thought the cash rate was still in the "cheaper" season as well. This happens to be Easter weekend so I am wondering if they made it a "premium" on the cash side once they released the 2013 prices.

The rate on the CRO website for our night shows $510 rack rate so our price is WAY below that amount. I specifically asked the CM, even pointing out the current rack rate, if our total was correct. She told me that, "Yes, you got a great rate and your room is paid in full". I don't know if this is because we booked back in 2012 (when the end of March didn't fall around Easter?) or if it just isn't correct. I told my dad that if they tell us that we owe another $150 at check in, I won't be surprised and I won't argue it. I still think our rate is an error, but since it is currently in our favor (and I have attempted to point it out...repeatedly!), I won't be upset if they catch it and make us pay the difference.

REALLY excited about looking at a trip to HHI! Trying to plan a trip this summer....read thru the 2012 posts (thank you for all of those ). Here are my questions:

1. With the limited availability of studios and 1 BR, how difficult is it to book them for the summer?

2. Should I book 1 nite at a time, or all 5-6 nts in 1 reservation? 1st time booking a DVC trip!

3. Is the Pirate BBQ still Tues nite and Shrimp boil still Thurs nites?

4. What time of day does the DVC dolphin tour usually start and it's about 2 hrs, correct?

5. If you combined a trip here with a few days at WDW, which one would you do 1st and why? Was thinking of Mon - Fri/Sat at HHI.

6. Fireworks - specific nites in the summer, or every nite? Certain bldgs/locations best to view them at? Would love to be on our balcony if possible.

TIA

Our original planned dates were to check in Jun2, but since I saw that date was unavailable, we decided week of Memorial Day. Wasn't sure if the rest of the week of Jun2 would be hard to get. Either way I wanted to check in on a Sun. Also in June we enjoy the Tues night fireworks. I don't think they do them the Tues after Memorial Day, not sure.
Anyway we are still excited to go back to HH and keeping fingers crossed for the waitlist to come thru.

My advice in a case like this is: call the resort, they're very friendly. Then post the answers of course!

Here is the monthly update of the seasonal forecast for Hilton Head.

a weak El Nino might be developing, but a strong El Nino event is quite unlikely for this winter. Colder than average temperatures are forecasted at the world this winter, but not at HHI. Spring is looking good! Above average temperature are also forecasted for the first half of the summer of 2013.

So here is my temperature forecast for 2013 in Hilton Head (issued Nov. 20th, 2012):

Jan-Feb: average
Mar-July: warmer than average
Aug-Dec: average

These are **average** forecasted conditions for each month, (compared to typical temperature for the month). Even when the forecast is correct, weather on individual days can be quite different from the average.

Thanks for the update, sounds like we are going to be on the receiving end on both extremes. We will be in Disney World in January 2013 and heres hoping on Friday at seven months I can get us in HHI for June 2013.

I am so hoping that I can book a 2 bedroom for 6/22-6/29, I keep checking the dates each day as I get closer to my 7 month window this Thursday. It seems like the first day of the window books right away. I checked today and 6/20 is booked but nothing the rest of the week, tomorrow I'm sure 6/21 will be booked. I'll wait list but I wonder if anything will come through.
