    Hi all, just finalized our Hilton Head trip for this summer and realized we didn't have a thread.
    We just called today and went with a cash reservation for a 1 bedroom for Sun-Tuesday. Added that to out DVC points 1 bedroom Tues-Fri and DVC points studio Friday night. It will be me, my husband, our 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son. My brother and SIL(no kids) paid cash for the whole week, we're all hoping for some waitlist magic, but at least we're going!

    I can keep the roll call. We can share tips, ask questions, count down, anything! Join in if you're off to HHI in 2012.

    A huge thank you for doing this!! I know that Simba's mom has done it in the past but has been unable to this year. I had no idea where to start with one so thank you!! We will be going down from 6/1 to 6/8 in a 1 BR. We absolutely can't wait to get back there. We had a small teaser in november for a weekend and we loved it there.

    This year on our to do list is:
    dolphin tour
    bike rides
    camp fire
    beach and pools of course
    relaxing!!

    Don't have a whole lot planned so can't wait to hear of some other's plans!

    Bobbiwoz-congrats on your new grandson-how exciting!
    We took my son to HHI for his first vacation, too, he was 6 months old.:love: It was our first trip to Disney's HHI Resort-we've been back every year except for once, and he's 10 now.
    We love it!

    Tinks-in all our trips we've never managed to do the dolphin tours! I can't believe it. Are you planning on the kayak tour or the bigger boat?

    I've never been in July, hoping it won't be *too* hot for bikes. Guess I could get up early and bike then.

    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.
