Walt Disney World – Hidden Vacation Gem

Join the Geek Family of 5 as we visit Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort. Our family was looking for a quick getaway and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort offered us the perfect destination.

This deluxe island resort offers a relaxing family friendly stay in a rustic and beautifully themed resort. There are not any giant theme parks nearby, but Disney magic still fills the air as there are plenty of kid events and activities. There are also adult activities and Hilton Head Island is also world-renowned as a golfing destination.

We found crystal clear pools, great food, relaxing hammocks, and awesome Disney Cast members ready to make our vacation extra special. The resort offers studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units and while it is actually a Disney Vacation Club property, non-members can book accommodations there.

This hidden Disney gem fits the bill for a relaxing, family friendly place to rest and recharge away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Come join us on this new Geek Family Adventure.
