    1st trip to Vero Beach next June with DD4, DS6 and DH; 1BR Villa. We have only been to Disneyworld. What to expect at this resort? Any dining or activity res we need to make? How spread out is everything? Can't find a map...Any info helpful! Thanks!

    Hi Corie,

    Disney's Vero Beach Resort looks so lovely. My fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelists Wilma, Andrea, and Jackie had wonderful things to say about the resort and gave me some thoughts to pass along to you. The resort is fairly small, and not as spread out as you are familiar with at Walt Disney World. There are many activities, from a large pool with a waterslide to miniature golf. There is a sing along campfire, as well as many other fun activities.

    Upon check-in, you will receive a sheet with the activities taking place during your stay. There is a list of activities and excursions at Disney's Vero Beach Resort available online. From that link, you can also download a sample schedule of activities. I spoke with a wonderful cast member at Disney's Vero Beach Resort, who informed me that when you arrive, you should check the activity schedule. It will let you know which activities you need to sign up for.  For most activities, you can sign up on the day of the activity. You can also call 774-234-2116 for the most recent schedule of activities at Disney's Vero Beach Resort.

    As to dining, for the most part there should be availability if you walk up for meals; however, you can make dining reservations if you like by calling Disney's Vero Beach Resort at 772-234-2000. The cast member at Disney's Vero Beach Resort did mention that you should make reservations if you would like to attend the character breakfast on Saturday morning, the seafood buffet on Thursday night, or the Sunday brunch, as all of these tend to fill up. All of these meals are at Shutters.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Corie! Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
