    We are driving to Vero Beach Resort this summer and am wondering if my kids are allowed to use their own boogie boards, chairs, and beach umbrella at the beach, or do we need to rent them from the resort?

    Hey there, Cassandra! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great planning question. I love chatting about magical vacations with my pals, pal!

    I could not be more excited to hear about your family's summer vacation at the pixie-dusted paradise that is Disney's Vero Beach Resort. My family and I vacationed there this summer, and it quickly became one of my very favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts. With the gorgeous grounds, breathtaking beach, oh-so-fun pool, fantastic dining options, and an endless list of awesome Resort activities, you will have the best time and can relax as much or as little as you want. It's the beach ... but make it DISNEY! Now, let's get this planning party started!

    I think you will be happy to hear that you and your kiddos will absolutely be able to bring and use your own boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas on the beach at Disney's Vero Beach Resort. If you prefer the convenience of renting these items at the Resort, they are available, however, it's totally up to you! Just be aware that boogie boards or any floatation devices cannot be used in the pool, but they are absolutely allowed at the beach. Get ready for a splashin' good time!

    Cassandra, did you know that you can now link your Vero Beach Resort reservation to your My Disney Experience account and take advantage of Online Check-in?! Then, with a MagicBand or MagicBand+, you can skip the front desk and go straight to your room once it's ready! I absolutely recommend using a MagicBand during your Vero Beach Resort vacation. It just makes it so easy to tap into the beach access and pool area without having to dig into your beach bag for a room key card! 

    One more thing, Cassandra! Did you know that you are visiting at the peak of sea turtle nesting season?! Even though Online Check-in allows you to skip the front desk at check-in, I definitely recommend stopping by the front desk to ask about the current sea turtle activities. Walking the beach with a Disney Conservationist, learning about the sea turtles and their nests, and finding sea turtle tracks and nests was the highlight of our vacation! It's worth getting to the beach at dawn!

    I hope this was helpful, Cassandra, and I hope you and your family have the most magical and memorable time on your summer vacation! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    Blue skies and sunshine,
