Trying to Decide

We are booking a cruise for May 2013. We are trying to decide whether we should fly into Orlando and stay DVC for a couple of nights (no parks) or visit Vero Beach before the cruise instead.

If we go to Vero, which airport should we fly into? We've never rented a car, so I don't know how that works. Would we rent at the airport and then return it at the cruise terminal? Please tell me all of the perks and plusses to staying at Vero. Thanks!

I know this is kind of late notice but I just cancelled a one bedroom at Vero with the stay beginning May 23rd.

Hope someone who loves Vero as much as I do snags it.

Family overruled me - we are doing WDW after our cruise instead of Vero this time.

We won't get to meet before the cruise at Vero (we are on the Magic on the 18th too). Want me to bring you sand? We will be going after the cruise for ONE MORE DAY at Kidani. Where are you guys staying after the cruise?

Just made a reservation for May 3-8 in a ocean view room! This is my first trip to Vero Beach and I'm so looking forward to it. I think I will be doing a blend of lazy beach bum, eco-tourist and nerd over my six days. There's a full moon on that Saturday night, so I'm hoping for clear skies.

I would love a shell or two for my collection.

We are staying at OKW.. first time we staying there so we are looking forward to it. My family(mostly DD's) thinks a week at Vero is just too long. Sometimes I have to wonder if we are related. I would love a week to lounge on the beach reading and taking walks. Maybe it's their ages?

We have only used our DVC points at WDW. If I want to stay at VB on points, how soon can I book? What do I need to request in order to get an ocean view room? We will only be here for a day or two before our cruise. What do you consider the 'must-dos' and 'must-eats?' Thanks!

VB is treated like any other Disney resort for booking if you are staying on points - 7 months out if you do not own there.

Ocean view inn room is a booking category. They sleep 4, with two beds. This is as opposed to a studio - same number of points, but has the pull out couch, and the ocean view is NOT guaranteed (or really even possible, from what I gather.)

Shutters was good for dinner and the character breakfast. We like Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty in Vero across the causeway, but many others will have eating suggestions.

We enjoed the ocean, the pool, and the Community Room.

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.
I am still wondering about New Year's Eve. Anyone?

We were there from Christmas to New Year. They do a big party at the pool, dj, characters (only two I think) make an appearance. It was fun.

We just came back from Vero Beach prior to our Dream cruise! It was great. We spent all afternoon by the pool and hot tub then lounged by the room and had diner at the green cabin room. The conch fritters are great. This is our new place to stay prior to our next cruise in 2013!

Thank you! I am guessing Goofy and Donald, as that is who normally comes to the character breakfast at Shutters.

I'll pick out some good shells. We arrive at Vero on the 10th, at Old Key WEst on the 14th then board on the 18th with you. It seems we are destined to meet.

Just booked our first trip to Vero this morning. We are going at the end of August after our DCL Dream cruise. We are super excited!

How did you get from Vero Beach to Port Canaveral?
