It always interests me to click on the "Replies" number of the VB thread (in the forum listing) to see how many times people are posting to the thread. We have a number of new major contributors. I think you can click on the link below to get there too.

Are there any spa treatments for kids? DD and I were just talkng about trying a Disney spa. The one at SSR has "My First Spa Experiences" for ages 4-12. DD is 8, so she would be a good age for it if it was offered at VB.

It's one of my very favorite places! This was the first time we just stayed at Vero without a Disney trip too. Although I couldn't resist a small side trip. One day we had had enough sun so headed over to Downtown Disney for a little Disney fix. Had dinner at Trail's End then watched Wishes from the observation deck of Bay Lake Towers.

Thank you! We just may try something when we are here for NYE, schedule permitting. Yay!

Actually, this might be a quiet year for you August is when I start looking for the next VB thread manager and really start paying attention to these numbers.

So, that said, I am officially kicking-off the search for the next person to moderate the thread. I feel it is very important to have new blood, new ideas, new fun. I haven't been very new this time around. Need help.

It really is as easy as copying and pasting the current thread and making corrections, changes, and additions as desired.

Anybody have any interest? If someone doesn't step up... I will have to let the thread die. Threat, threat, threat....

Thanks for the replies!

I asked this on a VB facebook fan page, and I was directed to this:

http://advc.disney.go.com/media//dvc...vised_2011.pdf

Lots of good info!

BLAH!!!!!...and now there is Issac to think about. Wish I had a crystal ball to know if we should have an alternate plan and head to Orlando on Sunday. If we cancelled part of our Vero trip, the points would be placed into holding and we could use them immediately at another resort, right? Decisions, decisions!!!

They do have tween treatments for that age group. We were just there last week and my DD10 had a tween massage, while my DD12 had a tween facial (I think each was $65). I had to be in the room while they were getting their treatments - they put my DD's in adjacent rooms that had a retractable door, so I was able to sit with both at the same time. Both girls loved their treatments.

They also offer ice cream manis and pedis (around $35/40) that include ice cream at the end. Neither of my girls opted for those, though, so I can't give you a review on them.

I had a Vichy shower treatment. It was wonderful. This was our second annual trip to the Vero spa and I'm sure we'll be back again next year.

Oh, and all spa services for DVC are 20% off through Labor Day. Enjoy!
