Question Turtle walks in May?

Does anyone know if Disney offers turtle walks the last week of May? Also, are the turtle walks only on Wed and Thurs?

I don't have the info about the resort. It is raffle for slots to go, but here is an alternative that starts in may

We are going to be two adults, two 15 year old boys and two 13 year old girls. Would we be better in 2 OV inn rooms instead of the dedicated 2BR? It's only going to be 5 nights (we're going to cancel the Fri and Sat night and add Tue, Wed and Thur nights), so we could probably do w/out the laundry and kitchen. I just noticed that the dedicated 2BRs don't really have a view of the ocean.

Shutters and Sonya's

I went online to the Disney website to make ressies there but it isn't on their site. Do I call the resort directly or don't they take reservations?

OK...all set for our 1st trip to VB...modified our resie and got exactly what we hoped for. We are lucky enough to have a 2BR (lock-off) for August 19-24 booked. I requested top floor. Now to figure out where we'll stop for 2 nights on the way home from VB.

Also, the MS person just asked if I was interested in dining resies...she told me to call back to MS on or after Feb 21st. So, you can make resies with MS.

We just returned from a week vacation in FL. We stayed one night at VB in a 2 bedroom lockoff. It was a great stay. The room was big, clean, and there were plenty of towels. The kids loved the bathtub! The weather was a bit cooler than we would have liked but we still swam in the pool for on both days. We are heading back for a week long stay next month! Cant wait for our OVIR!

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

Took the boat trip to Pelican Island this afternoon and thought it was excellent. If you care to do one through the Environmental Learning center, I suggest that you call a week or two ahead because they fill up.

We were given another possible place to view manatees this time of the year, and we will head out tomorrow AM. The learning center actually has a boat trip to this State Park to or row, but it's filled.

Okay, from VB back to Disney we have taken 95 to 528 to 4 or we have also taken 95 to 528 to 417. DH prefers the route with 417 he doesn't think that there is as much traffic that way. They are the routes we have taken in the past.

Enjoy Vero!!!

Thanks for the update!

Does anyone have any recent pictures of the one or two bedrooms or know where to find some? I could find a lot of Inn room pics, not so many villa room pics or Vero trip reports
