It sounds like a great idea once our kids are bigger but should be fun for you and yoru husband.

We are planning to travel from Pittsburgh to Hilton Head too. We want to go in August (4-10). We have never been there before and are hoping to get a 1 BR villa at the 7 month mark. Not sure if that is going to be difficult to get at 7 months, but will give it a try.
Good Luck to you. I am waitlisted for a 2 BR villa June 23-28 and I called at 9am on November 23. Maybe try doing it online at 8am? I think some people had better success with that.
Good luck to you both! I was relieved to get a 1br at our 7 month mark, but I went back in a week or so later and it was booked solid!
We are going to HHI Jan 18-21st. We have never been, but we had points we needed to use and HHI is pretty close to us (we live in Charleston)
Great, you can have the privilege of doing the 1st 2013 HHI PTR!
We are hoping for October 6-11 if we have some 7 month luck!
It will be out second trip to HHR. Great relaxing trip, but this time I have a goal to see more of the south. Maybe Savannah or Daufuskie island.
I am updating my alphabetical list of things to do at HHI, and appreciate your help. Would be fun to cover all letters! And then maybe add details on the activities. A good starting point is of course Disney's HHI website:

I am starting to think that if we love HHI after our trip that we will add on here! Do the owners feel like the higher MF's are worth it?
My friend is geting married in April 2014 and is almost 100% sure that it will be at HHI. How difficult is it to get a room at 7 months in early April if we aren't able to add on before then?
Thanks for any advice!
HHI is a small resort where most units are true 2BR (not lock-off). So if you're likely to often want something else than a 2BR, you might be out of luck at 7 mo, especially during Summer.
Our kid have spring break. The first full week of April every year. In 2011, we got lucky and got a 1BR for 5 nights at the 7 month mark without a wait list. We bought an add-on but decided on a 2BR for our 2013 trip. I was able to book 4 nights with points at 11 months, but when I tried to book the 5th night at 7 months, it was unavailable by the time I called.

Figured you all would know if there is a sleeper chair in the two bedroom Villas at HHI. Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry, no sleeper chair at HHI as far as I know.
Our first HHI trip is July 3-July 9, 2013!
Do you own there, or did you just get really lucky with a summer reservation?
I definitely think the higher dues are worth it..if you have your heart set on a popular time and/or if you want something other then a 2 bedroom.
My brother and sister in law waitlisted for July, 7 months put, and it never came through.
They paid cash for the week. I booked at 11 months, waitlisted a couple of days at 7 months(1 bedroom) because i didnt have enough HH points, and was lucky and got it. Only because I waitlisted each of the nights separately since I only needed two.
If you can't get in at your favorite WDW resort, you have a bunch of others to use your points at, in HH, you only have the one option, so for me, I'll pay the higher dues.
I only wish I had more points! We have 100 thinking we'd go every other year..that was 12 years ago and we've been every single year. LOL
Even though it has not been a month yet, I am starting to think my waitlist for June will not come through. We have a BLT contract and have never stayed at HHI. I would like to stay there before we drive into another contract at HHI.
I'd suggest renting from a HHI owner before you buy if your dates for next summer are flexible.
