Cool "WE'RE AT MINI DISNEY!" Our First Visit to Disney's Hilton Head Resort UPDATEx2 10/31


Why hello there, everyone! Thank you for stopping by my trip report!

My name is Jess! Some of you may know me from the Walt Disney World trip report board. I'm one of those frumps, I'm a hopelessly obsessed Walt Disney World fanatic, and I am here to share yet another story with you all!

For this vacation, my family went to a completely new destination. Being DVC members, we didn't want to travel too far off the path, so we still stuck with the Disney name. However, we were not going to any of the Disney theme parks.


After a hectic summer, we needed a little vacation so we could unwind and get ready for the upcoming school year. Let me tell you, Disney's Hilton Head Resort was the absolute perfect choice for a vacation like that! We feel completely recharged now and our time there was extremely enjoyable!

You don't hear about this place too often, and while planning for my own trip, I could not find ANY full out trip reports on people's stays at HHI. Since writing trip reports has become my favorite hobby, I decided to write one about my experiences for others to reference and enjoy!

Let me properly introduce myself:


Like I said, my name is Jess. I'm 19 years old and I'm about to start my second year of college. I am a very motivated theater and communications dual major and my goal in life is to work for the Walt Disney Company. I actually hope to do the Disney College Program within the next couple of years. I LOVE Disney food and Disney pin trading. My favorite Disney movies are Tangled, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin. I have been to WDW over 20 times and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon!

Here is a picture of my family:

Jonathan, Dad, Mom, and Me

From left to right, you have Jonathan, (my 16 year old brother) my Dad, my Mom, and me! We are a very close family and we were so happy we got the chance to take this trip to finish off our summer. We love traveling and swear by DVC - my parents wish they bought it sooner! My Dad works in the insurance business, my Mom is a stay-at-home Mom, and my brother is just a pretty chill guy who is a big sports fan!

We had another guest join us on our trip:


Preston is my boyfriend and we have been dating since February of this year. He goes to college with me but he actually lives in Georgia, which is about 16 hours away! (driving distance) We hadn't seen eachother for 3 MONTHS STRAIGHT prior to this trip/my visit in Georgia. (which I am going to do a brief post on at the beginning of this trip report.)

Preston has a fantastic sense of humor and is such a sweetheart. He treats me like a princess and he is very supportive of my Disney obsession! He has only been to WDW once when he consciously remembers it, but thankfully he understands pin trading! (That's the important part, right?) I got to teach him a lot of Disney-isms on this trip, so he's learning more and more by the day! He only got to stay on this trip for 2 nights/3 days before he had to go back to work, but it was so fun having him there!

Alright so that's a little about us!

We stayed at Disney's Hilton Head Resort in a wonderful two bedroom villa. We were there for a total of seven nights and our dates were August 17th-24th, 2012.

Whether you're reading this for entertainment or if you're actually planning to visit Hilton Head Island, I have lots of great recommendations and stories coming your way!

Disney's Hilton Head Resort is very different from Walt Disney World, however, it has enough Disney touches to make you feel right at home. The service is top notch, the amenities are BEAUTIFUL, the cast members are friendly, and you can definitely tell that this place is run by Disney!

Stay tuned for the next installment of the trip report! It is a pleasure to have you here! Welcome aboard!
