Disney Parts Ways With Beloved Hilton Head Island Resorts B’Lou and Shadow

I never thought I’d create an short article about Disney firing a puppy, and but right here we are…

Anybody that is a supporter of Disney’s Hilton Head Island Vacation resort has likely read of B’Lou and Shadow. As the formal mascot of the vacation resort, Shadow initially confirmed up sniffing around for the duration of the resort’s original building and has been a staple there at any time due to the fact. She can commonly be observed accompanied by Mick Ayres, who also goes by the title B’Lou Crabbe. B’Lou has served as the resort’s community folklore qualified and entertained visitors with his storytelling, audio, and magic for more than twenty-one several years.

Very last 7 days, each B’Lou and Shadow saw this job appear to an abrupt ending in a shorter five-minute mobile phone simply call. After months of promises that they would return immediately after a twenty-thirty day period hiatus, Disney has made the decision not to convey the duo back again to Hilton Head Island Resort.

In a put up on Fb, Ayres (B’Lou) went into depth with regards to his determination to Disney around the previous twenty months. B’Lou ongoing to hold up his conclusion of their settlement by not pursuing other payment in the course of the shutdown. Disney also ongoing to honor Shadow’s part of the efficiency contract by shelling out for her ongoing vet and grooming treatment. By way of this very good religion energy, it appeared all but specific that their return was only a subject of when not if.

Followers and HHI homeowners have taken to the online sharing their B’Lou and Shadow stories over the past week. Some have even taken points a step more, trying all the things in their ability to get Disney to see the joy and lifetime that B’Lou and Shadow deliver to the vacation resort.

Maybe it is the puppy father in me… but this one particular tugs at the heartstrings just a bit far too substantially. I wish B’Lou and Shadow the best and hope that possibly with plenty of appreciate and aid, we will see them on a foreseeable future check out to Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort.
