We recently headed to Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort for the first time. We had a great time and can’t wait to visit again. I’ll have a full review up soon but first here is a tour of our wheelchair accessible room.
Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is a DVC property so you can find the same types of rooms as the ones you find at the Disney Parks. There are 123 villas that include studios, one and two bedroom villas, and a few 3 bedroom grand villas. We booked a studio with a roll in shower.
Our room (1112) was located in the Live Oak Lodge close to the main lobby. Since everything has to be built to withstand hurricanes many of the buildings don’t have elevators but the lodge does. It was actually really nice being as close to the lobby as we were. It’s not a busy as other resorts so it’s pretty quiet, especially in the off season. Plus they have free coffee and hot tea in the mornings and since we were there in a cooler month hot apple cider and cookies in the afternoon.
The kitchenette was located right as you walk into the room. Everything was accessible to me, including the sink. We had a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and toaster oven. We ended up not making coffee since the lobby was so close but they feature the same Joffery’s coffee pods that you find at the Disney Parks. There were also glasses and Disney Parks paper plates and bowls and well as plastic cutlery, a wine bottle opener, and can opener.
The bathroom had a roll in shower but not a permanent bench. We just had to let the front desk know that we need a shower bench and housekeeping dropped one off. I prefer when the bench is built into the shower but other than that it was nice and easy to use. It also didn’t have the water leakage problem that some have at the parks.
The sink was also easy to use but the mirror wasn’t. There is a large mirror on the back of the door though.
The closet is located next to the bathroom and has one lowered shelf. It’s also where the safe is located as well as a broom, vacuum, and pack and play.
The rest of the room was really nice and spacious. The carpet also wasn’t very thick so it was easy to roll on.
The studios have one queen bed and a full size sleeper sofa. Only one side of the bed is easy to get to but it’s where the nightstand is located so I was okay with that. 🙂
The balcony was really nice as well. It was a little larger than some of the others so it had two rocking chairs and a table. It also had a nice view of the water.
We loved Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort. The room was great, the Cast Members were so friendly, and it gave us that Disney magic that we were needing. I can’t wait to go back!
