Disney's Hilton Head Resort in the Winter Time

On our way back from Walt Disney World, we decided to impulsively stop at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort. Yes, we had no reservation and our goal was to drive at least to Virginia and get a room there. But, just as we were getting close and saw the signs for Hilton Head, I looked at my husband and I could tell he was thinking the same thing. If we call I'm sure they have room because it's the low season for Hilton Head and because we are DVC, we can use our points and not have to pay cash for a room.
Your Daily Activities

We have been there many times in both hot and cold weather. And as in the busy summer season, there are many activities in the winter. The pool is still heated to about 70 degrees, the hard part is if it's a little cold getting out. The resort does provide big fluffy towels that are in your room, and two around you should be good to keep you warm. The average high temperature in January is around 59 and the low is 40 but, our days were in the 60's. You can get lucky and the weather from Florida will follow you.

Some of the activities other than swimming are :
  1. Shopping at the Mercantile Store
  2. Eating a couple of Mickey Ice Cream Bars
  3. Going in the Hot tub @ a steamy 98 degrees
  4. Arts & Crafts : making bracelets
  5. Fishing
  6. Catching Crabs of the pier (net is included in price)
  7. Dolphin Excursions
  8. Kayaking
  9. Shuffleboard
  10. Camp Fire at night including Smores

There are many activities but, my favorite is waiting to meet and pet Shadow the Mascot at the resort.
She is a six year old Golden Retriever and she also has a schedule when she is at the resort so you don't miss her.  

SO Cute

She's Smiling

They just love that Shadow

And with all that to do you can just enjoy your villa and do nothing or sit on you deck and rock the afternoon away. This resort is quiet and secluded so you can just lay in a hammock or find a hidden spot and read. There are also Hidden Mickey's for you to find too. There is a playground for the kids so as they are enjoying themselves in an enclosed playground you can take it easy too..

Disney's Beach House is currently being updated so it's closed for now, but that doesn't mean you can't go to the beach. There are many around and you just ask and they will point you in the right direction..

Not Disney's Actual Beach House but Close
