Jess,

I have been following your Disney College Program Trip Report and read through the entire thing (and all your other reports too ) and I just LOVE them! I was looking through the DVC pages (because my family owns a DVC Membership) and stumbled upon this trip report. I opened it up and I was like OMGSH!!! This is one of Jess' trip reports!?!?! But this one isn't in your signature as a link, so I had no idea you did one on Disney's Hilton Head Resort. I just loved it!! This is honestly my FAVORITE place to go, besides Disney World of course. We have gone so many times over the years I can't even remember the count. Last time we were there was in August of 2011 (so i missed your family by 1 year ) That was the trip when I got engaged at Hilton Head Ahh I was so excited!

I know this was your first trip to DHHIR, and I'm really glad you liked it!

Here are my comments from reading the HHI Trip Report:
Ok, first off, your haul from The Disney Store was AMAZING !!! I was laughing so hard seeing you and those massive store bags with all the Disney goodness in them!

You mentioned that you went pin trading at the front desk every day. We did the SAME thing, I honestly went there soo much. We also stopped by the Rec desk each day. They had a bulletin board with pins on it. It was awesome! I really didn't get back into pin trading again until like a year ago. We first started collecting pins back when they came out in 2000!!! CRAZY! I have some like really old ones that my parents bought me just to collect and we didn't really trade them back then, but NOW I love it soo much!

I love that awesome sign right behind the campfire pit pointing to all the other DVC resorts!! It just makes it feel so homey and slightly connected to everything else at the same time! I have always loved seeing that sign and it's cool because I have gotten to see them add rungs to it throughout the years as they add more resorts (GRAND FLORIDIAN NEXT!)

HAHAHA OMG!! I loved the "HIBISCUS PHOTO SHOOT" I was literally laughing so much because every time I am there, we somehow have a "HIBISCUS PHOTO SHOOT" and I look back at pics and theres like 4000 pics of the flowers. EVERY TIME!! haha

Ok, on that giant pier, there are ALWAYS those really lanky white birds. Last trip, they got soo close to us and were TOTALLY cool with it. They must be used to the guests by now. We have some pretty hilarious pics of me and my fiance trying to "poke" the bird!

Glad you got to rent bikes. We always rented bikes and then we would ride over the to beach house on our bikes! It's kind of a long trip, but it's just so nice there and the weather is awesome, and the trails over are mostly shaded. Most of the time we would ride over with my dad and my mom would meet us there with the van (and all of our stuff )

I loved that you got that experience with the CM calling your room to tell you about the Haunted Mansion pin!!! That is the one thing that I absolutely love about DHHIR is the CM to Guest interaction! There are only a few CMs there compared to WDW, and each time we went it seemed like the REC department CMs really interacted with the guests the most. The CMs there are more like family!!! We became friends with different CMs every trip and even went back and saw the same CMs from trips we had met them on before. Last time we were there, my fiance proposed to me on the first night of our trip, so we got to be newly-engaged for the whole trip. I think my little brother (11 at the time) told a few of the CMs at the gift shop that we got engaged and honestly once that happened, the ENTIRE resort knew. It was hilarious. Everywhere we went people somehow knew we were the couple that got engaged and the CMs congratulated us and asked to see my ring and asked about us. It was so funny! I just thought it was hilarious that it was just like a little small town. One thing happens and suddenly EVERYONE knows.

Finally, if you go back again you DEF have to go to Coligny Square and Harbour Town. There's tons of shopping at both (some stuff is kinda touristy) but it's just so fun to walk around and see lots of different things around there. Harbour Town has a big red striped lighthouse and a beach area and is a great place to watch the sunset! It's just amazing.

I really LOVED this trip report! I felt like I found a little hidden gem from Jess (after reading all your WDW TRs). Thanks!!!!!

PS: This is me while reading and scrolling through all the reports LOVE IT!
