    Hi MaryAnn,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. You are choosing between two lovely resorts! Both Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort and Disney's Vero Beach Resort are beautiful Disney Vacation Club resorts with access to beaches. Which you decide upon for your vacation will probably depend a lot on your family and your specific preferences. Let me give you some thoughts on each resort to help you to make your decision.

    If you or anyone in your party enjoys golf, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort may be the way to go. You can enjoy golf at many courses nearby to Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort using special rates and packages through the resort. You will also have access to a beach at this resort; however, you should know that the resort is not right on the beach. Disney provides a shuttle to the beach from the resort, and at the beach you can enjoy the amenities at the relaxing Disney's Beach House. Also, considering that you are traveling in the summer when it can get quite hot in Florida, visiting Hilton Head Island may be a little bit cooler.

    Disney's Vero Beach Resort is located right on the beach, so there is no need to take a shuttle to play in the surf. There are also nearby golf courses, and many opportunities for recreation. There is programming related to sea turtles at Disney's Vero Beach Resort, and you will be traveling during the time that these programs are available.

    Either way, I think that you will enjoy a relaxing beach vacation, MaryAnn. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
