    What are your Disney Hilton Head Island resort must-do’s?

    Hello there Sarah, welcome back to planDisney! 

    Thanks for bringing your questions to planDisney, it's always great to chat about the charming Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort. Your springtime vacation is just around the corner so let's hop to it. 

    Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort is one of the two Disney Vacation Club Beach Resorts. While still part of Disney, these resorts are a bit further in distance from Walt Disney Resort but have their special place among Disney's incredible Resorts. Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort is tucked into the incredible coastline of South Carolina and embraces beach life with more than 12 miles of beaches. For those who love splashing in the pool, you're in luck - the resort has a few pools on site: The Big Dipper (you'll find the wraparound Water Tower Slide here), The Little Dipper which is perfect for smaller "guppy" swimmers and finally, the"H"-shaped Beach House Pool located at Disney's Beach House, about 1 mile from the resort (there is a shuttle to the Beach House or Guests can rent a bicycle and pedal). 

    Tip: Like the Disney Collection Resorts at Walt Disney World, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort offers a Weekly Experience Guide to Guests. The Guide covers all of the resort's amenities as well as the fun offerings available through the wonderful Recreation Cast at Broad Creek Rentals. Reservations are required for many activities such as the Dolphin Eco Cruise where Guests explore the area's marshes and search for the infamous Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin, the Guided Kayak Nature Tour through the Hilton Head Island tidal marsh and an activity that my daughters absolutely love: a shark tooth hunt!  

    The resort offers a variety of crafts at the Community Hall for those who are both young and young-at-heart and I can't forget to highlight hanging out at the pool and participating in all sorts of trivia games at the Big Dipper Pool. Guests also have the chance to meet some familiar faces at the Character Meet & Greets! 

    Don’t forget to take a peek at the current offers for DVC Members (found on the DVC website). By showing their digital Membership card, eligible DVC Members will receive discounts at various locations around Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort on merchandise, dining and activities. 

    As you can see, there are so many fantastic activities that will have you falling in love with Disney's Hilton Head Resort in no time. I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning, Sarah. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I'm happy to assist!
