Disney’s Beach House
Located a shuttle or bike ride away from the main section of the resort, Disney’s Beach House is on the Atlantic Ocean beachfront. This is where you can find umbrella and chair rentals, quick service lunch at Signals, and a heated pool. The Surfmen’s Station at the beach house is also the perfect place to lounge by the fireplace and play games for some indoor fun.
Each week there are activities for the whole family, including Goofy Bingo, Movies Under the Oaks, and Mickey Tie-Dye. You can also rent equipment to go fishing and crabbing along Broad Creek. Like other DVC resorts, Hilton Head offers marshmallow roasting by the campfire. If you need a little more Disney fun, you can find Chip ‘n’ Dale at the resort as of April 2023!
Stop by the community hall for games and arts and crafts. You can also visit the front desk to borrow board games.
At the resort’s recreation office, you can rent bikes for adults and children to enjoy the many scenic bike trails. The bikes have fat tires, so they can be used on the beach. The rental office even provides complimentary bike helmets, locks, and baskets.
Aside from bikes, you can rent equipment for fishing, crabbing, basketball, bocce, pool, table tennis, and shuffleboard.
