    We are arriving at Disney's Vero Beach Resort on 08/26/2024 for the week. Do you know if surfing lessons are still being offered? If so, do we sign up for this activity at Eb & Flo's Rentals?

    Hi there Thomas,

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks for bringing us your question about Disney's Vero Beach Resort, it's one of my family's favorite beach resorts to visit especially during turtle nesting season. Our favorite beach activity is heading to the shore every morning at 7:00 AM to meet the Conservation team Cast Members (they also work at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park). I love walking alongside them as they search for turtle nests. Vero Beach serves as a nesting ground for Loggerhead, Green, and Leatherback turtles. The Cast Members are always happy to answer any questions about the turtles and their nesting season, which runs from April to September.

    Thomas, I spoke with a Cast Member at the resort and inquired about surfing. During my family's vacations, the ocean was always on the calm side with smaller waves. The Cast Member confirmed that unfortunately there are no surfing lessons offered at the resort and that there isn't a lot of surfing in Vero proper. He recommended heading North along the shore and catching some of the bigger waves closer to Cocoa Beach which is known for its surfing. 

    Disney's Vero Beach Resort has waves that are great for boogie boarding - it's one of my kids' favorite activities. If you don't have a boogie board of your own, not to worry - you can rent them right at the resort as well as rent sailboats, jet skis, kayaks and banana boats. 

    Don't forget to link your Disney's Vero Beach Resort reservation to your My Disney Experience account. Once this has been completed, you can access Online check-in so that upon arrival, you can head right to your Villa and open the door with your MagicBand or MagicBand+! You can also use your MagicBand to access the pool area as well as the beach, it's handy!

    If you're feeling on the hungry side, Wind & Waves Grill offers incredible dining. (Head there if you are craving Mickey Waffles). This is also the place to go for the Vero Beach Character Breakfast (available on Saturdays only from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM). If you're in a rush to hit the beach or perhaps rent a bike from Eb & Flo's Rentals, Wind & Waves Market offers a variety of grab-and-go type meals and is also the place to get a DOLE Whip®.  

    I hope this is helpful, Thomas. I wish you and your family a wonderful summer vacation at Disney's Vero Beach Resort. Please revisit planDisney if you have any other DVC or vacation planning questions!
