Walt Disney World & World Travels

Hilton Head Island October 2008

Posted on: May 28, 2009

We don’t always go to Disney (World) sometimes we like to go to Hilton Head Island and stay at Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort.

Quick little trip report from our weekend at HHI.

We (DH 39, Me 37, DD14–15 in a month– & DS11 ) drove down on Saturday 10/4.  Checked in around 2pm and CM (Natasha?) was great! Very friendly & helpful and found a perfect villa for us that was ready.

We were in 2611 (2br villa), overlooking the Big Dipper Pool. Villa was in great shape, perfectly clean, no issues at all.  This is the view from our deck:

After settling in, DH & DD went to one of the local parks to play tennis. DS & I hit the pool.  Weather was beautiful, sunny & low-mid 80’s. There were only a couple of other people in the pool, we had a great time. I even tried out the water slide.   Then we played some table tennis & shuffleboard.

After relaxing a little while in the villa we all went to Parrot Cove Bar & Grill at Shelter Cove for dinner.  DH & I had the all-u-can eat crab legs, yum!  DD had the “Parrot Burger” -with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes, and a big kosher pickle  (I couldn’t get the song out of my head the rest of the nite  ) DS had an appetizer sample.  Meals were good, service was a little spotty but all in all, it was pretty good.

After dinner, we all went to the park for some family tennis.  These were beautiful courts, lights, and empty. Had a good time, stopped at the Piggly Wiggly for a few things that didn’t get packed  and went back to the room.  I was surprised that the pool area gets locked up at 10pm .  JMO, but if it’s ok to swim without a lifeguard from 5pm-10pm, why not leave the area open? Would have been nice to go to the hot tub… The kids did go down and play table tennis & shuffleboard and then called it a night.
