While I was a travel agent, our Disney rep. came in to give us a Disney seminar. One of the things she told us about the Disney Resort in Hilton Head. Needing a break, I brought home the information and asked John if he was interested. Being the big Disney fan, he sure was.
I originally booked our stay under a travel agent rate. This gave us a bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room for my mother-in-law. I requested a visitor’s package from www.hiltonheadisland.org and noticed they had an even better package than I could get as a travel agent! Wow! This one gave us two bedrooms and a $25 gift certificate for less money! Okay, sign us up. This is why I always recommend requesting a visitor’s package when traveling.
The Disney Resort opened in 1996. It sits behind a marine harbor and has a beautiful marsh in the back. The 15-acre resort is surrounded by massive oaks tress, many dating back over 100 years. The resort is more like a rustic cabin feel that what usually associate with Disney. This is a timeshare, but you do not have to participate in a tour to stay here. We didn’t. They also offer the Disney Resort as just a resort.
We had a two-bedroom cabin. Our room had an oversized wrought-iron king-size bed. We had a 37" TV in an armoire. The room had two oversized chairs, chest of drawers, and a truck. The furniture was made of wood, with a very rustic feel. The bedspread looked like an Amish quilt. The colors come from nature, featuring rust, dark green, and yellows. Our room opened up to the private deck. The bathroom in our room featured a hot tub. The bathroom was very spacious and luxurious. It featured his and her sinks. The amenities basket featured Mickey Mouse products (which were actually Dove), and the shampoo and conditioner was Pantene. There is also a shower in case you’re not in the mood for the hot tub. My mother-in-law's room included two full-sized beds and a full bathroom. Her bathroom did not come with a hot tub. Instead, she had a regular bath/shower. The bathroom was slightly smaller, but still nice and cozy. She also had a TV, chest of drawers, and a big comfy chair.
