Question for VB veterens???

How likely will I be able to book a 3 bedroom cottage at 7mos out for the first week of March 2013? Are the beach cottages in high demand as I know there aren't many of them?

Question Beach Chair Swap

Hi I have been reading as much as possible for our Vero Beach trip. Noticed that in the 2007 Adoration thread there was a Beach Chair Swap. Would like to know if there might be any interest in setting one up?

Thanks

Please add us to the roll call!

We will be at VB from May 25th to May 28th before heading up to WDW. We are DVC members and this is our first trip to VB.

I've been trying to do some research about dining. When is the best time to make reservations at the restaurants? Since we are going over Memorial Day, I'm assuming it's going to be full so I want to make sure we get reservations when we need them.

We can't wait to get there!!! It looks like a beautiful resort!

We are going 5/3-5/6

Before heading over to WDW 5/6-5/9. It is our 30th anniversary trip & our first visit to VB! (we are DVC members) Glad I found this thread! I am reading all the info. (looking for golf courses nearby as well) Surprised to see that they accept TIW...may have to get another AP so I can get the TIW again... (my current expires 1/27/12) Also, I thought I saw this, but is there a charge for wireless internet at VB or is it free for DVC members, as it is now is at WDW? Thanks! Debbie

The chair swap was a wonderful thing while it lasted, but alas, it became too much of a burden on the VB staff. If you were to do it, I think it would have to be a direct hand-over type of situation. That would be pretty hard to coordinate though.

Someone will respond... I think this is a possibility, but I have never tried to book a cottage.

The BC's are in high demand most of the year. There is always a chance...my guess (and it's only a guess) would be you stand at least a 50/50 chance of getting it in the time frame....ya just have to call and find out...but DO call on the very first day you can.

One of the major things that killed it was funding the swap. At the beginning of the year those who participated contributed towards the purchase of chairs, umbrellas, anchors, etc. As it turns out, the arrangements for collection of money violates the DIS boards rules and the moderators put a stop to it. I guess I agree that solication of money on these boards, for whatever reason, shouldn't be permitted.

It sure was a great program and it would be fantastic if it could be re-created somehow.

I understand a bit more why it became difficult to continue the swap. When I go in June, I know for a fact that I will probably be buying a beach umbrella, some chairs, and maybe a small chest to take cold drinks with me down to the beach (if the resort permits it) and when I am out and about exploring nearby areas. I thought maybe we could start a "beach swap" and leave our pool toys, sunscreen, beach chairs etc to another diser when we check out without exchanging or involving money whatsoever. I know that when I have been to other beach resorts, I always find someone by the pool to give my pool loungers, and any beach toys we don't want or can't fit back into our luggage. Since the first page on the thread has a roll call, we would be able to swap things with others. If this is something others would be interested in.. maybe we can start a "beach swap"
