    Are you looking for a specific resort or just any of them? I also assume that you are just looking for two consecutive weeks.

    Sure, it's possible. Probably will have to "walk" the reservation to get the full two weeks.

    I don't see a problem either as long as you start looking/booking ~ 276 days reservation and "walk it" to get two weeks. Don't wait for the two weeks to become available.

    btw, I would expect Lagoon Tower to book first because of the lower point requirement for Hawaii.

    The Hilton Hawaii Village (HHV) is very popular. Expect lots of competition at HHV whenever the kids are out of school. You’ll want to book as soon as the Club reservation window opens up at midnight eastern. During these peak periods, all unit sizes and views may not be available. Also, you may need multiple reservations if there isn't a single unit type available for your entire length of stay.

    The Club Reservation Window opens up
    - 9 months before checkout for Grand Waikikian Tower, Lagoon Tower and Kalia Tower
    - 6 months before checkout at the Grand Islander and the offsite Hokulani boutique hotel.
    Note: The Lagoon Tower and Kalia Tower will be the hardest to book since they require less points.

    Here are some old threads you might find helpful.

    No, it will only be a one-time fee while changing a changeable reservation.

    I wouldn't recommend it as being unnecessary for a changeable (non-bonus points nor home-week reservation) June/July reservation. Here is the method to cancel a reservation within 30 days. Just move that reservation to utilize same number of points or more to somewhere beyond 30-day window. Once you have it moved, then cancel it. You only need cancel insurance (or maybe home-week reservation) at end of year when you can not move a reservation into next calendar year. Look at this thread.(https://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?threads/avoiding-cancellation-penalty.254246/)

    I've only stayed in the ocean view rooms, so I can't speak to the view from the garden view side, but, yes, it's nice. Biggest problem/negative is if you're up high but not real high, the elevators are slow and can be a real pain sometimes because, on the way down, they'll be full when they open on your floor. I find it often helpful to go up to go down, especially at prime times like checkout.
