Hilton Head Island sits off the coast of South Carolina and is well-known as a luxurious vacation destination. However, it came under a hurricane warning as Ian regained Category 1 strength and turned inland through South Carolina.

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is one of a group of non-Theme Park Resorts operated primarily by Disney Vacation Club and includes Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. There is no word at this time about what kind of impact Hurricane Ian had on Disney’s Florida Beach Resort.

Disney describes this Resort experience as the following:

“Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is located on the picturesque coast of South Carolina, only 5 hours from Walt Disney World Resort. This elegant, relaxing home-away-from-home—fashioned after a 1940s hunting and fishing lodge—combines local charm and simple pleasures with outdoor fun for the entire family. The resort features multi-roomed villas and many recreational activities, including 12 miles of heavenly beaches.”

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Hurricane Ian’s impact on Disney Resorts as more developments continue to come to light.
