    Across Highway 278 under the watertower is a great place to eat. Pazzo. Great Italian food. Don't think they do take out, but, it's not a long walk. Very pretty if you use the walkway under the highway.

    I believe I have read on this board in the past that if your room is not ready when you check in at the resort, they can store any groceries that you may have that need refrigeration/freezing until your room is available. Since they don't have bell services, I assume that you just drop your groceries off at the front desk (and retrieve them from there when your room is ready)?

    Has anyone on this thread done this in the past and can verify that it is true?

    Yes that is true, they did it for us during on June 2013 stay. I also saw people who were switching rooms have their food stored properly until their new room was ready. Enjoy your trip!

    That's great. We're arriving early Saturday morning and wanted to pick up a few things on our way in and drop them off before heading over to the beach while waiting on our room.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    If you have pizza delivered to Disney's Hilton Head Resort, where does the delivery guy bring it? Just to the gate? To Live Oak Lodge? Or to the room?

    Any recommendations for pizza delivery? I have eaten at (and like) Giuseppi's. I'm just interested if there are places (that deliver) which anyone here recommends.

    They deliver to your room. We've ordered from Guiseppes and Wild Wings Cafe before. One other place, but I can't remember the name, sorry!

    We too will be checking in early on Saturday for an 8 day trip, leaving from Jersey at 11pm tomorrow night and driving straight thru, about 12 hours. Can't wait.

    Florence is where we usually stop for the night, only a couple of hours from there to the resort.

    Also, where is the Sam's club and Publix?

    It's about 3 hours from Florence to HHI. The Hampton Inn at exit 164 got awesome reviews.

    Got back home about 4 hours ago from our first trip to HHI and DVC stay in general. Had a good time. Didn't get to spend enough time in Savannah as I wanted to, but always next time. Played one round of golf (Port Royal). Will definitely be back. When is the question.

    Does anyone have the number for captain Scott that does the dolphin tours at the resort? We got it on our last trip but have lost it. We are currently at HHI but not at Disney. No more points left. We were wanting to do his cruise again. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!
