Hi Scott! It is worth the trip just to see this, if it all works out and you get to see a nesting. If not, it can be a little disappointing.

It was good, as long as you're a carnivore. Vegetarians might want to keep looking for other options.

Quick question, our next trip will be with our baby girl, who will be approx 18 months. Would you say that there are adequate facilities and entertainment etc for us or would you wait till she was older perhaps??
Hi Mel. Hmmm, that's a tough one. I'd probably say that it might not be the best place for a baby that age. The biggest attractions are the beach and the pool, and I remember that we didn't always have the most fun at the beach with a baby that age -- Judy was always worried about them putting sand in their mouths or things like that. As far as the resort activities, there were a lot of things for young kids, but probably for a little bit older than 18 months. It probably wouldn't hurt to contact the resort, or you could post a question on the Vero Beach thread (under the DVC section of the DIS) to see if anyone with babies nearer that age has any advice/recommendations for you....since my kids are older I am probably not a lot of help.

It was a great night! It was great to see the kids so excited and happy. I don't think any of us will forget it any time too soon.

I wish. I have to confess that I still haven't even started the next chapter, and I have a busy week, so it'll be interesting to see when I can get to it.

I'm caught up!!!!!

Vero's setup looks just like OKW in the villas. Love it! Huge and awesome.

How VERY cool that you guys got to see a turtle! What an incredible experience for everyone. I think Vero is a must for these city folks - gotta teach the kid to fish and to experience wildlife like that. And that view...ahhhh, beautiful.

I know what you mean -- with limited time, it's a choice between updating or getting caught up on others'.

Well, "crabbypants" might be a little over the line.

Yep, nicely sized suites.

I think it'd be a great trip for you guys. Henry's at a great age that he could take advantage of a lot of the programs they offer. I could see him enjoying fishing in their pond, and the sea turtle nesting is unbelievable, if you get lucky and get to see one.

No worries! (And I'm not just saying that because you're from Australia. ) You'll notice that our drive to WDW was a lot less eventful than your cross-country marathon-trek though.
