Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort {Our Visit}

We spent a splendid six days of our spring break soaking up the sun, making new friends, relaxing, and relishing all of the fun things to do at the little known, tucked away Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort.

It was a truly wonderful and relaxed week full of good old fashioned family fun and togetherness.  I think we will remember this spring break for a long, long time.  And we will absolutely, positively be back.  I’ll share all of the details on the resort tomorrow and open up a Q&A session like I did for the Disney Cruise last year.

See ya real soon, Disney Hilton Head!!

  1. Ahhh…wonderful. I've never stayed at one of the Disney resorts away from the park but have had my eyes on the one in Veto Beach. Think my littles…at 20 and 21(lol)…would love it as much as yours. We are Disney lovers, too.

  2. I'm an avid reader of your gorgeous blog from the north-west of England. I absolutely love Disney and this place looks incredible! Looks like you had the most amazing time x

  3. What a relaxing, good old-fashioned vacation! In your overview, please fill us in on the Date Night options available. It's too funny that the littles said it was their favorite night after all that! :)

  4. You had me at resort; however, I am not sure if a Disney one is my kind of resort—kids!!!! LOL!!!! It looks beautiful. Love your anchor jacket!!!! W is a good sport:) Miss ya girlie! xo

  5. Truly a wonderful vacation spot…kids are still talking about it. Wish we had been there longer to enjoy all they had to offer.

    Hugs to Whit from my two who have deemed him "one cool kid". I think he convinced them that we will be seeing each other next spring break–lol.

  6. Looks like fun!! Some friends of ours stayed at the Disney resort in Hawaii and had a blast. They live in Jacksonville and have year round passes to Disney World!! What a life!!( They are empty nesters who still love all things Disney!).

  7. What a beautiful time! Disney sure knows how to do it right, don't they? Thanks for sharing your vacation with us.
    BTW, we loved our short weekend stint at the Disney's Vero Beach resort. It was so neat experiencing 'Disney' out of Orlando and on the beach. That resort did offer one character breakfast with Goofy and Donald on Saturday morning, but other than that, we were pleasantly surprised at how it wasn't overly 'kiddy' at all. You almost wouldn't know it was a Disney property.

  8. Amanda, Love your top with the anchors on it, so cute! Where did it come from? Also, we have been DVC members for over 10 years and HHI is our home base, just love it there, even though our kids are in there 20's we still go every few years. Will come in handy when we are blessed with grand kids some day.
    Thanks, Susan
