Photo Tour: Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort Pool
Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is the quintessential beachside escape. The sprawling property fronts the water and is surrounded by countless local eateries that make it the perfect family-friendly getaway while maintaining that unmatched Disney magic.
Today we’re exploring one of Hilton Head Island Resort’s most appealing crown jewels: their massive pool!
Big Dipper Swimmin’ Hole
The Big Dipper Swimmin’ Hole is situated at the heart of the Resort. No matter where you’re staying, you are never more than a few minute’s walk to the Big Dipper.
The pool itself and its surrounding deck would remind WDW fans of the pools we have here in Orlando. There are padded pool chairs and tables galore, inviting guests to set up shop for the day.
A life guard is present during operating hours, and there is even a tower of life vests are on hand for young and inexperienced swimmers to help them feel more comfortable getting in the water.
If you’re not quite ready for the main pool, there’s an adorable splash pad area for the kiddos. Adult guests can also choose to take a relaxing soak in the hot tub.
The best part of the Big Dipper Swimmin’ Hole is by far and away the water slide feature! Just like the pools at WDW, the waterslide is the focal point of the pool and helps advance the story of the area.
The slide’s water tower structure serves as the central story element here at the Swimmin’ Hole, giving the whole pool the rustic feel the Imagineers were aiming for.
