Entrance to Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort

Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort is a Disney Vacation Club Resort and vacation rental accommodation, part of the far-reaching Disney brand of timeshares, located in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Designed by Cooper, Robertson & Partners, it opened on March 1, 1996. This property is on a secluded 15-acre (6.1 ha) island in the Shelter Cove Harbour area of Hilton Head Island.

The mid-island resort has an intentionally rustic theme and this property very much caters to kids. The rooms, grounds and location clearly accommodate a family crowd.

The rooms are spacious, clean and have kitchens and balconies. "South Carolina Lowcountry" is the theme and style of Disney’s Hilton Head Island resort. The grounds are well-kept and modern, with amenities that include hammocks and grills.

Disney Hilton Head is top-heavy with activities for children, including nature programs, campfires, magic shows, “Kids Night Out”, crabbing, art, swimming pool & pool games, biking, kayaking, tennis and more things to do.

The Disney Hilton Head resort is on Hilton Head’s Broad Creek, which is technically a land locked tidal marsh. A shuttle bus transports guests to the Disney Beach House in Palmetto Dunes, which is about a mile-and-a-half away. There guests enjoy a private swimming pool with bathrooms and a snack shop right on the Atlantic Ocean.

The resort does not have a full service restaurant, but there are two spots to eat: The main resort building and at The Beach Club. Both serve lunch; however, at the main resort it serves breakfast. Adjacent Shelter Cove has a nice mix of restaurants and a supermarket. HarbourFest, now in its 19th season,[1] runs every Tuesday night from June 5 to August 21 at Shelter Cove Marina, featuring arts & crafts, live entertainment, and fireworks at sunset. There is a special HarbourFest celebration on July 4.[2] In addition, "Summertime at Shelter Cove" features five nights of family entertainment by Shannon Tanner, who plays two shows per night, 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.[3]
