    How long would it take to drive from WDW to the Vero Beach DVC Resort? We'd like to check it out since we've never been there.

    Hey, Karen! I tell people all the time that there is more to being a Disney Vacation Club member than just Walt Disney World. With vacation options that literally span the globe, it really was one of our best vacation decisions ever.

    Disney's Vero Beach Resort is located on what is known as Florida's Atlantic Treasure Coast, about an hour and 45 minutes south east of Walt Disney World. The resort offers a little something for every type of vacationer. Nestled just steps off the beach, you'll feel like you've discovered a hidden gem that offers a quiet, relaxing vacation. With the resort recreation offerings, you'll find activities for the kids, miniature golf, and even the opportunity during the summer to observe the nesting sea turtles. So cool.

    My family and I had also never been there when we decided during a Walt Disney World vacation several years ago to make the drive. The front desk provided us with some resort information, such as the daily activity schedule, and gave us the opportunity to walk around the resort and see the beach and the amenities. It sold us on Vero Beach as an alternative Florida vacation destination for my New Jersey family.

    Enjoy the magic, Karen!
