It's a little bit farther from the resort heading back towards the mainland.

This is our first visit to HH and we are really excited ... and starting to look for tips and suggestions. I know we will be taking a day trip to Savannah and I want to do a dolphin tour, but otherwise, it's up in the air. I'd love restaurant suggestions too!

Thanks
Our family is not big "foodies", we are more into the atmosphere (think Hard Rock, Planet Hollywood etc). Anyway, we LOVE the Salty Dog Cafe. Decent food, cool atmosphere and near an area that is neat to walk around.

Beach Question

Hey everyone. This will be our first 4th of July at HHI and I have a couple questions about the beach. How does Disney make sure that only guests access the beach? Also, do they have chairs and umbrellas or do you have to bring your own? Any help would be great

Talking

The beach is a public beach really....many other resorts are beachfront, plus other areas of public access. Only Disney guests can access the Beach House. There are chairs n umbrellas to rent or you can bring your own.

maybe we will cross paths during our visits!
Hi there! So sorry I have not replied to you!! Yes, I hope we will cross paths! My DD16 Megan is hoping she meets some other kids her age to hang out with, but she is not the type to approach someone, so I am not sure how that will happen for her! DS12 Evan, however, will talk to anyone and makes friends easily! I think we will be at the pool a lot but since we have never been there, I am just not sure! We leave a week from today!! We are getting so excited!!
Hope to see you soon!!

We just booked 12/29 to 12/31. Leaving on New Years Eve to head home to the family. Very excited to try out Hilton Head. We are stopping there on our way home from Disney.

I guess we will be there at the same time. We are doing a week there on our way to Disney. Have you heard about anything fun to do for New Years? I called the resort and they said they do a pool party that night with a DJ and stuff so that should be fun.

Just checked in today. Love the view from our room. We are in Bldg. 11. We have a great water view all the time. The only down side is we can hear the A/C's running when on the deck. Not a big deal to me. I'm trying to do a live TR from there but won't have any pics until we get home. Hope yall will check in on it. And can't wait to see all the other dissers that check in on sun.
