Most people don’t know that Disney has an amazing family resort located on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. This resort is full of southern charm and hospitality.
The resort is secluded on an island within Hilton Head Island, and is a nostalgic lot of vacation homes with a great lodge nestled under the shade of the live oaks. Here you will find a very laid back low country lifestyle, without the fast pace of the parks, but all the comforts and details that you expect from Disney.
This resort isn’t on the beach, rather it sits on the marsh. The beach is a mile away, you can ride a bike, walk, drive or take the shuttle over. There you will find Disney’s private beach house. Here you can eat, swim in the pool or walk to the ocean. There is also a splash pad for the little ones.
The resort has a nice pool with a great slide. This is where a lot of the daily activities take place. Each day they have a list of activities, from learning about the area sea life, making shark tooth necklaces, mickey mouse tie dyed shirts, camp fires and pool games. They have plenty to keep the kids busy and allow the adults to lounge by the pool and relax.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa that was surrounded by huge live oak trees, the marina and different games throughout the resort area. There is a life size checker board game, putt putt golf and other fun activities for the kids. Hammocks are located in several places for your relaxation. The vills was home away from home, you had everything you needed to prepare meals if you wanted. Full size kitchen, living room and a dining area. You could also dine on your deck if you wanted, or just enjoy the peace and quiet in the rocking chairs. The master bedroom had a king size bed and a large bathroom, with a big whirlpool tub and shower. The second bedroom has a bathroom and 2 queen size beds. If you need it, the couch and love seat also pulls out into beds.
From the moment we arrived we knew we would be returning. Being greeted at the door with friendly cast members, lemonade and freshly baked cookies were in the lobby for our enjoyment. The cast members here are very nice and go out of their way to make you feel at home, even calling you by name.
There are many restaurants in the area, and you will receive info on all of the area places to eat or enjoy the night life on the island.
I loved this resort so much, we booked another trip before we even left. We enjoyed the calm and relaxing environment and still receiving the quality and pampering that you expect from Disney.
