    First trip to Vero Beach in June! Do they do movies under the stars? If so, do they set up chairs, or are we allowed to bring camping chairs, small cooler, and blankets? Also, can Disney giftcards be used at Wind and Waves Grill and the gift shop?

    Hey there, Amanda! Welcome back to planDisney! I am so happy that you've stopped by with another great vacation planning question.

    Amanda, I can sense how excited you are, and I am feeling the excitement, too! I am also going on my very first vacation to Disney's Vero Beach Resort next month, and I seriously can't wait. Experiencing the surrounding nature, the beach, the oh-so-fun pool and waterslide, and the possibility of getting a glimpse of baby sea turtles or their nests along with the magic of a Disney vacation sounds like a pixie-dusted paradise! With so many opportunities for relaxation and so many recreation offerings and Resort activities, you can relax as much or as little as you want here. I'm so happy to hear that you are also planning to take advantage of the activities and dining that the Resort has to offer, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today! 

    Great news! I'm happy to let you know that Disney's Vero Beach Resort does have Movies Under the Stars on the back lawn, and you are welcome to bring chairs and/or blankets to get cozy during the movie. I called and spoke with the most magical and helpful Cast Member (Seriously, the Cast Members here are AMAZING!), and she let me know that bringing a small cooler should be fine, but no glass is allowed. Watching a Disney movie on a cozy blanket with the salty breeze blowing and hearing waves lapping the shoreline ... Does it get any better than that?!

    The good news just keeps on coming! You can use Disney Gift Cards for purchases at the Resort, such as Wind & Waves Grill, Wind & Waves Market and Island Grove Packing Company. Speaking of Wind & Waves Grill, I recommend dining here for both breakfast and dinner.  I seriously cannot wait to try the Key Lime-stuffed waffles for breakfast and the Shrimp & Grits for dinner. YUM! Is it vacation time yet??

    One last tip! Don't forget to wake up or unwind with cocktails, desserts, coffee and fabulous views at the newly renovated Green Cabin Room. From 8-11 a.m. daily, specialty coffee beverages, morning cocktails, teas, pastries, and more are offered, and did you know that for a fee, you can participate in "Adult Beverage Experiences?!" Every day, from 4-5 p.m., enjoy an hour-long experience crafted around a different spirit depending on the day of the week. Just stop by Eb & Flo's when you arrive to book your experience! This nautical-themed lounge is the perfect spot to begin or end the perfect magical beach day! 

    Amanda, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have THE most magical and unforgettable anniversary vacation. Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
