    We will be visiting Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort in July. Our son will turn 1 while we are there. Does the resort offer birthday cakes or should we bring our own? Also, are there any special birthday perks we should know about?

    Hi Amanda,


    How wonderful to celebrate your son's first birthday at Disney's Hilton Head Resort!  When you check in mention that it is his birthday.  They usually will put it on the big screen in the Lobby as well as send a card and special pin to your room.  At this time, they do not make birthday cakes.  They are trying to reinstate this at the Mercantile.  The Cast Member I spoke with asked me to have you call her back after June 15th to see what they can do for you.  There is no direct line but if you call the resort at (843) 341-4100 and speak with the front  desk, you can ask them to direct your call to the Mercantile about a birthday cake.  At this time, there is no bakery on site, and they are trying to get a process in place with a local bakery with deliveries to the resort.  You will have the best time celebrating your son's birthday at Disney's Hilton Head Resort!
