    Hello! I'm condidering a trip to Vero Beach -but, have a few questions. How far is it from the airport, and how can I find out if the can accomodate a Gluten Free diet? Lastly, are there activities to enterain a 3 year old? Thanks in advance

    Hi Melanie,


    I have not stayed at Vero Beach personally but it is on our "To do" list.  The Resort looks amazing!  The beauty of it is that you will have all the Disney benefits but with the ocean right outside your room.  Everyone I have talked with says it is the most relaxing and wonderful vacation!  From Orlando International Airport, it takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes and from Sanford International Airport, it is around 2 hours.  You will need to rent a car as Disney's Magical Express does not go to this resort.  I spoke with a Cast Member about your dietary requests, and she didn't seem to think it would be a problem and transferred me to food services.  I was not able to speak with anyone there but want to give you the phone number to Vero Beach Resort so you can call and leave a message with them if you cannot get a hold of anyone either.  The phone number is 772-234-2000. 


    There are so many activities to do for your three year old!  They have a weekly newsletter called "Playful Pastimes" that will list every daily events.  Some fun activities are Parent and Toddler Craft time, poolside races, paper airplanes, chalk art and bubbles on the beach, a pool party every afternoon, a sea shells project which toddlers and children will color a sea life mural with Cast Members, and a Beach walk with a Naturalist.  There is also a campfire with S'mores which sounds so much fun.  Let me tell you, Melanie, just speaking about all this resort has to offer makes me want to book today!  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further.  Welcome Home!
