Chair Rentals

Hi everyone! We are returning to VB this coming July for a week of relaxation and when I say I can NOT wait.....I really really mean it!!!!

When we have stayed at VB in the past we have brought our own fold up beach chairs. The resort chairs and umbrellas look so much nicer and more comfortable then what we had. We also noticed that the resort chairs were all taken by late morning. So... I am wondering if you can reserve chairs and umbrellas before you arrive for the duration of the visit? The resort is very full the week we are going (I was told I got the last open room - who knows how accurate it is, but I am guessing it could be busy) and I'd like to have a chair claimed without having to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve one.

I apologize if this was posted previously - I haven't read the entire post.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

I assume you're talking about the chairs/umbrellas that are actually on the oceanside beach?...you cannot reserve them in advance of your arrival, but multiple sources say that once you arrive you can reserve in advance by going to the rental hut on the boardwalk leading to the beach and making your reservations there.

We are headed for our first stay at VB on March 28 for 3 nights.

That day is my DSIL's birthday. Any suggestions for a romantic restaurant for the two of them (or a fun restaurant if they take their girls)?

Thanks

Thanks - I was referring to the ocean lounge chairs. I will do that then. Much appreciated

Room Types

Hi everyone! Going to VB for the first time April 1 - 7 for spring break. Have been trying to talk DH into this for months and he finally agreed. We are using part DVC points and part cash reservations due to limited availability. Have a question regarding the room types. The cash system has 2 studio types: Inn OV or Deluxe studio. The DVC site has 3 studio types: Inn garden, Inn OV, and deluxe studio. We have Inn garden by points and deluxe studio by cash. I called the cash reservation number and they indicated the deluxe studio could either be the Inn or villa, based on availability. They also indicated they would note both reservations and try and keep us in one room for the length of stay. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am fearful that they will switch rooms on us mid-stay.

So excited! Our wait list came through and we're headed down in GVIR April 2-5. This is our 3rd trip to VB, myself, DH, DS8 & DS3.

Does anyone happen to know the room numbers that are IRGV above Bleachers? We had one last year that was directly above the bar canopy overlooking the pool that was fantastic and would love to request something on that same side this year.

We will be there in late September. Does anyone know if they have any of the special dining options (character meals, pirate dinner) during the off season? I think my son would love them.
Thanks!

They will "for sure" have the Saturday morning Character breakfast, and the Sunday morning Brunch. They are likely to have the seafood buffet on Thursdays. I'm not sure when the pirate dinner ends (seasonally)

So long as the reservations are linked - you will more than likely not have to switch rooms. Of course there's no way to know this for sure until the time comes - you will have to "check in and check out" meaning that you settle your account from the first reservation and re-check in for the 2nd - but 96% + of my experience has been you won't have to physically move.

Hey everyone!
We're headed back to vero for Easter weekend. Well be there between April 6 and April 10.

I had a quick question. The first time we went to vero was aug 2010. During that trip we couldn't help but notice how slow and spotty the Internet was in our 1br villa (we were in building 14). Has the service been improved at all since then or should we expect similar service?

answered your question on the other thread you posted concerning this.

Well, our California trip fell through. However, Dec 28 - Jan 2 in an OVIR will be a nice consolation prize.

We went to VB a few years ago and it was great. We were thinking about returning next year during Easter week. Are studios available at Vero Easter week at 7 months out?
