I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

Before I forget...Dead Poet's Society is one of my all time favorite movies.

That pizza looks good! Now I'm hungry.

The one thing I don't like about big resorts is that they are so big and spread out. They should rent golf carts...

As a little side not...I know I'm a fuddy duddy but it's nice to see your girls in swimsuits that actually have more material than string and a few triangles. I'm always amazed at how little some teenage girls are allowed to go out in..

Well, even on a Sunday with full picture viewing capabilities, I can't count Judy's fast enough. And - I would have to get my magnifying glass out to count three of those judy's.

I liked the Orchid Pizza place when we stayed there. I think we may have ordered take out from there more than once.

I think you went all "Cynthia" on me with that map of the resort and the multi-colored arrows. Isn't it weird how everything looks far away on the map, when in reality everything is pretty close. We stayed at the south end of the resort.

I agree that all the grocery stores seem so far away, but I like that they gave us a paper with suggestions.

I can see where 5 people sharing 1 BR could get a bit difficult.

Great update!

Another great update Glenn! Extremely detailed as usual :P that pizza does look nice, and I don't even like pizza (pause for gasps of surprise) :D

I can't help but see that your next chapter is a not so subtle reference to previous TR's too. That beach looks inviting to me, not to mention the scenery. Where I live beaches mean hypothermia and hypodermic needles... But we do share the seaweed problem! That movie perk sounds really valuable, especially with kids to entertain, I know my parents were glad of a rented movie when I was younger on trips!

The shortage of hanging space is a common problem among hotels everywhere it seems. Strange, considering that most places have pools if not beaches. Overall, really interesting, and well worth the wait

ETA: I was major impressed that you gave the rip tide demonstration too. Always good to see people respecting nature!

Congrats Katharina!

Marv has no intention to put in any more answers for the contest so you don't have to worry about that. You guys can have all the "fun."

Poor guy. Kind of gives you an impression of how that ticket taker at Universal Studios feels when somebody tries to use theie Magic Your Way ticket to get in.

Cool! I'm glad it did have that Disney feel to it. I've always wondered how the Disney touch actually translated over to their non theme park resorts.

We switched our plan to go with that one, but should we walk or drive? It seemed silly to drive, but we were in a fenced-in resort and I had no idea how to get there other than follow the GPS, so that’s what we did. I probably drove just as far to get out of the resort as I did to get to the pizza joint.

Yes, not a bad beach, but the seaweed was, how shall I put it? Less than optimal. Like I said in the chapter, I don’t think that was the norm.

It was a very successful arrival day! I think the fact that our room was ready really helped.

The seaweed was not good. There was just as much in the water, and the ladies in my traveling party in particular, did not like it touching their legs and ankles and such.

Later in the week I went out through that gate, so I have no idea why it gave me a problem that day. You’d think that if my key wasn’t working yet, I wouldn’t have been able to get in, but that worked just fine. Weird.

You probably have better local pizza places than we do!

Simply b/c it was closer but I would have liked to check out Fresh Market.
That’s reassuring then, that you left your kids at the pool too. It wouldn’t have been any fun for them to go on a tour of “the grocery stores of Vero Beach”.

Where we went really seemed like a hike, and then when we ended up going to 2 different grocery stores, it took longer than we thought it should. So, you need to have a good list and make sure you get everything the first time!

I’ve never been to that pool. I’m not even really sure where it is in relation to the Boardwalk. That poor pool takes a lot of grief over that creepy clown, but I’d like to stay there sometime.

With the bad weather and the red flag flying, I thought it was a good idea. And actually, my kids haven’t been to the beach much except when they were tykes, so it was new info. for them.

Yes, but we didn’t try them out….sorry! Sonya’s is the “fine dining” restaurant and Shutters is more casual, from what I can tell. My sister-in-law (has appeared in a couple of my trip reports) said that Sonya’s is one of her daughter’s favorite restaurants. Cynthia, eandesmom, has a trip report going also and is getting near the Vero Beach portion. I think they tried one or more of the restaurants.

Have you ever had a movie that you tried to see, but it just didn’t work out? That’s the Dead Poet’s Society for Judy. We went to the theater when it came out and a few minutes in, she started not feeling well. She didn’t want me to miss it, so she went home and then came back to get me after the movie. And now I can’t remember if she stayed up to watch it with the kids…I don’t think so, she can’t stay up late. But I remember that she and Lauren were surprised to see one of the doctors from the tv show “House” as one of the students in the movie.

I haven’t stayed at OKW, but a few people have said that.

I think Vero Beach is a great option for DVC members who might be looking for something other than the parks.

The lack of hooks really stood out. Being a beach place, people always have suits and towels and things to hang up, and you’d think the resort wouldn’t want them hanging on the balcony’s where they’re an eyesore.

I just didn’t want a bad end to the vacation. And it’s been a while since my kids were at the beach, and when they were, they were at an age where they spent most of their time making sand castles. They needed this info. now that they were going in further.

It worked later in the week, so I'm not sure what happened this time. Probably a case of "Operator Error".

Except calling each other "white".

There might be a picture of me on the beach in a future chapter, so keep a welder's mask handy.

I'm glad to see that you made it back onto dry ground.

Maybe your wife will surprise you and tell you that she's just driving around Delaware and all of a sudden you pass under the WDW "welcome" sign.

Dang, I should've worked that into the chapter somewhere. But that's your superpower.

We really enjoyed the pizza at Orchid Island. We also got salad from there because my husband always feels the need to have salad with pizza.

I wanted to drive there when we were going to go there to pick up our pizza, but I was voted down. It's not a terrible walk...even with a three-year-old.

We just got back from the Gulf Coast and we all decided that, while the sand at the beach was softer, the beach/condo on the whole were not as enjoyable as Vero Beach.

You'd think he'd learn by now! Thank goodness for Google

My sister-in-law (has appeared in a couple of my trip reports) said that Sonya’s is one of her daughter’s favorite restaurants. Cynthia, eandesmom, has a trip report going also and is getting near the Vero Beach portion. I think they tried one or more of the restaurants.
Thanks! I'll check it out!
