My wife and I are going for our first Vero Beach visit 12/22 - 12/26.

We don't really plan to do much outside, since I expect the weather will be a little on the cold side. But that's okay, we chose this visit as a relaxing trip.

What I am wondering is what the dining options might be like for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner.

We plan to cook at least one of those meals in the room (we have a 1B), but not sure if I should be worrying about availability.

We plan to hit the WalMart on the way into town, so the worst that can happen is one more meal in the room.

Thanks in advance!

Great information, tks.

We are going May 9-11 and wanted to know, do you call and make reservations for Shutters (Thurs. Buffet). If so, do you call the resort directly or can you make them through DVC. How far out should I make them? We are a party of 6. This is our first time staying there. We are combining Vero w/ WDW. I am within our 180 day window now, so not sure if I'm suppose to call and make an ADR.

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I've only wanted to book the character meals and have always called the resort directly about a week or two ahead of time.

We will be there for Easter next year and I called member Services at the 180 day window to reserve Easter brunch and had no problem. When I called the resort directly they said they couldn't book that far ahead, so I'd go with Member Services.

Thanks, I didn't realize I could make reservations at Vero through MS. I will try to do that this week.

I wonder why they decided to discontinue room service? The CM I spoke with said the lunch menu has been expanded at the GCR since Shutters no longer serves lunch. The current issue of Disney Files seems to say Shutters is only open for dinner but they are open daily for breakfast.

Going back

We will be going back again June 19-27, 2013.
Can hardly wait. Went for the first time 2 years ago (even though we have owned there since 2000) and positively loved it.

Tried to get 2 BR for our whole stay but the last two nights were not available so we will be splitting up and staying in 2-Inn Rooms our last two nights.

I'll be there next week - and I don't care too much what the weather will be like. 1/3/13 to 1/7. And I'll be there again in April: 4/9 to 4/13. I think I must have had about 20 visits during my membership.

Vero Beach Kids Craft ages

Headed to Vero 1/16 with DH, DS13, DD 9 & DS 5

Looking at activites and see that the age for the craft time is 6-12. When we were there in 2011, DS who was 3 at the time able to do craft time then. The younger 2 loved it while older DS & DH went to Daytona 500. Does anyone know if strict about age or not?

If they are, I guess we'll find something else to do, but the craft time is one of the things the kids were looking forward to.

Thanks!

I'm no expert, but I would say just go. Your youngest is near the 6 year mark and will be with an older sibling. Not saying you should lie, but hope that reason will outweigh a few months. Also, can't believe this will be a busy time at the resort so that may help.
