We thought we would have a nice lunch (recommendations please) and visit the beach area. I did see on the DVC website that pool hopping is allowed, though not sure if we want to do that, but might pack our suits anyhow. Has anyone done this recently? Should we bring beach towels? We will be staying at the BWV, so we can prove we are WDW guest. Can we access the beach? Since this next trip is a long one, we certainly have the time to visit. I tried to read this thread, but it's huge and it seems almost everyone loves their stay here.
I think I would call the resort directly and ask if you can access their beach. Like the pool, you must have a key card to unlock the gate.
As for lunch, I would say "Squid Lips". Very casual atmosphere and on the water....

No problem accessing the beach. The same key card works for both the pool and beach gates.

My husband is sitting here beside the fire place thinking of making s'mores so he can practice for Vero. Does anyone remember the resort record? Was it 26?

Sea Turtles at Vero Beach

A new post from Disney Parks Blog states "Disney’s Animal Programs team members have marked and monitored 1,381 loggerhead sea turtle nests, 220 green sea turtle nests, and 11 leatherback sea turtle nests so far during the 2012 nesting season, which ends in late October."

I am so grateful to have witnessed this program first hand. What a wonderful experience!!

Changes at Bleachers and Shutters

As of Oct. 1st, Shutters is no longer serving lunch and Bleachers has an expanded menu. For those of you not familiar with the resort, Shutters is a casual table service restaurant within the main building and Bleachers is a poolside walk-up window – outdoors. In the article (link below) it states that it isn’t clear if discontinuing lunch at Shutters is a seasonal or permanent change.

We have only visited VB once so others may have a better idea if this change is for the best. During our visit we enjoyed Bleachers poolside on several occasions and always were impressed with the food. The updated menu at Bleachers sounds really yummy.

Here is a link with photos of the new menu: http://dvcnews.com/index.php/resorts...ers-lunch-ends

Thank you for that link! I'm interested in that sea turtle race and also love to read the hatching report!

Thanks for posting. An expanded menu at Bleachers is a great thing, we eat there most days for lunch (otherwise, go to Orchid Island Pizza down the street!). We've been to Vero many times, and never had lunch at Shutters. We actually haven't had dinner there the past couple trips, either. Green Cabin Room is fine for us if we decide to stay at the resort at night.

Unfortunately I don't think we have enough points for a Vero trip next year, though! I really do love the resort. Nothing better than relaxing by the pool, except during love bug season!

Booked!

We're going BACK. April 25th through May 1st. Then we are driving down to Miami to hop on the Disney Wonder.

We loved VB and reserved another 2 bedroom as my husbands' parents will be staying with us.

Last time, we didn't go off site much (at all). This time, we will be headed off property more for dinner/experiences.

Well it looks like we will be giving up part of our signature...



Currently in the process of selling our VB points. A few reasons; a few two many points, that reallocation a couple years ago really hurt our plans, were feeling very uncomfortable owning beach front with global warming, and DD is looking a $$$$ colleges

I'm sure we will still visit VB but feel more comfortable this way.

Love VB so much we bought!

We have been going to Disney Vero Beach Resort since we bought points there in '98. We love the area. So because we love the area so much we bought our retirement condo right across the street from Disney Vero Beach Resort at Coralstone. Coralstone's property boarders Disney's park lot across A1A. Our beach access it to the right of the resort. Now all we have to do is retire which won't be for another 3 years. Maybe I'll get a job at the resort.

The only problem is that now we might never stay at Disney's Vero Beach Resort again.
