Enjoy Vero!!!
Thank you for your reply. Our plane lands at Sanford Airport at 10:10 pm and we were undecided if to drive the 2 hrs or so to Vero Beach or stay the night near Sanford airport and then leave early in the morning. I am trying to convince DH for us just to drive to Vero Beach and do a late checkin.. even though we will get there past midnight.

I enjoy getting off the roads and doing something different.

A few years ago we took 528 and A1A. We did it on a Saturday and were stuck behind tons of folks pulling trailers. Why they were going south in March is beyond me. It was a beautiful drive, but I doubt we'll do it again.

One year we flew into TPA and drove across to VB on 60. Interesting drive past a huge number of orange groves.

This year I think we'll take 192 to 95. I think 192 will be tight through St. Cloud, we'll see.

Umbrella rental and cooler question

Hello everyone!
We are heading to Vero Beach in May. Does anyone know the current rental price of the umbrella and chairs on the beach? Also, can you take a cooler onto the beach? alcoholic beverages? I just didn't know what was allowed and wanted to know the Disney rules beforehand. Also, are you allowed on the beach after dark in May. I know you aren't when the turtles are hatching but that won't be in May. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Disboards!

It is hard to answer your question not knowing if you are first or tenth on the list. Cottages are pretty hard to come by and a reason many people buy VB points. Good luck though. I'll put you the roll call.

I can't speak for current pricing. Many people buy chairs and umbrella from the Walmart or CVS if they are staying for more than like 3 days. You certainly can bring a cooler on the beach. The beach is not owned by Disney so it is not their rules. All US shores are public domain usually managed by local, state, or fed gov. I personally wouldn't bring glass or bottles on the beach and usually drink whatever from a mug... could be beer or Margarita, or Iced Tea (Long Island)

You can walk on the beach in the dark (no flashlights). Beware, I broke a couple toes one year walking the beach in the dark by basically kicking a sizeable rock (not intentionally) on the beach. I mean who expects to encounter a 30lb rock on the beach? I do.

The turtles aren't hatching in May, but they are laying eggs by then. Have a great time.

renting bikes and where to ride them

We've been to Vero several times and have rented the disney bikes for an hour and have basically rode around the property and on the sidewalks along A1A. Any suggestions for a better longer more scenic bike ride? I know they offer a pelican island bike ride but our kids are 5 and 7 so Im not sure they are "allowed" to do this. They are both great riders and ride on 2 wheels, but we like to go at our own pace. Thanks for any suggestions. Are there bike paths at the Sebastian Inlet? Do they rent bikes over there?

One thought I'd have is to head North out of the resort and enter the Jungle Trail, then ride it south to it's end, and back up to the resort via the sidewalks on A1A.

I am pretty sure that if you go NORTH (Towards Sebastian Inlet) on Jungle Trail you will hit Pelican Island.

Nye?

Due to some financial issues, we are seriously considering canceling our DLR/VGC trip planned for this summer. Unfortunately, we would then have some borrowed points that would have to be used this use year. We are considering 12/28 - 1/3 at VB

Are there any special activities planned for NYE?

Does the Community Room have ceramics? These were a big hit in my family at SSR this past December.

Thanks! I really had my heart set on the DL trip, but I am trying to make lemonade. We love VB, and we love going somewhere warm that time of year, so it isn't too hard.

Catira,

I prefer 528. I've taken every route you can imagine between Vero and Orlando and that is just what I prefer. I bought a Sun Pass and it makes the ride even better as I don't have to stop and pay tolls.
