The Disney Island Resort in Hilton Head is a medium-scale retreat that provides an excellent South Carolina lodging option for families. The resort’s more specific location is on a small island within the larger Hilton Head Island. Surrounding the Disney Island Resort is Hilton Head’s widest estuary – Broad Creek. On land, oak trees that are adorned with Spanish moss mix with palms and pines. The setting is relaxing, and for guests who want to stay active, recreational opportunities abound.
A large heated pool with a wraparound water slide and a smaller kids pool figure among the available facilities at the Disney Island Resort, and guests can take a complimentary shuttle to nearby Atlantic Beach. Found on this beach is Disney’s Beach House – a beach club of sorts with a pool, an arcade, and an air-conditioned TV room. Other activity options include biking, going on nature walks, kayaking, and fishing. The list doesn’t end there, and when it comes time to recharge the batteries, the resort offers two quick service dining establishments. Weekly outdoor dinner events are available on a seasonal basis, and guests can use the resort’s barbecue grills or their in-room kitchen facilities to prepare their own meals.
