As I mentioned in my preview to this week’s blog posts, I plan to discuss a number of features of Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort throughout this week. I have selected some images to feature today that will help to capture some of the unique elements of the resort that do not necessarily fit into my other days’ themes, yet will help a guest to understand and envision this Disney property in South Carolina. Enjoy!
Located inside the Live Oak Lodge, Murggie’s Den sets the tone for the resort’s decor, story, and theme. Come here to gather by the fire, play checkers, watch television, shoot pool, or visit with other quests and cast members. Oh, and there are a number of Hidden Mickeys here, too!
The fire pit and shuffleboard court are popular places for families to gather. Besides offering a beautiful view of the creek and marsh, they also are in close proximity to the soda fountain, Tide Me Over food service, and other games (ping pong, foosball, horseshoes). Also nearby, you can rent fishing poles or purchase a crabbing net to use at the end of the dock in the background of the picture.
Shadow’s Point, named for the lovable mascot of Disney’s Hilton Head Island (more to come on this lovable character later this week), is the location for different family activities, including evening movies.
The pool located at the mainland location is a popular hangout (though I realize nobody was in it at the time this was taken, I assure you, even in 50 degree weather, the pool was regularly full). The Big Dipper slide is a fun focal point.
Though very limited in its offerings, the Mercantile is a shop where you can pick up some food necessities or Disney merchandise. Disney pins, shirts, plush, figurines all were available, including items branded for Disney’s Hilton Head Island as well as for Disney Vacation Club.
Guests can take advantage of the resort shuttle to access Disney’s Hilton Head Island Beach House, which is located approximately one mile from the mainland resort. Many guests also ride their bikes along formal bike trails to the Beach House, which requires a resort key to access.

Thanks for joining me for this photo tour. Many more images and descriptions of Disney’s Hilton Head Island will be in store tomorrow!
