I have to wait a few weeks before I can switch from BWV to VB...my 7 month window opens then. So....should I be overly concerned about not being able to get what I want at VB?? Hoping that Sept 1 isn't going to be overly busy and I can get my four nights there....really looking forward to it!!! Very excited. Besides, I don't think my dh is going to be happy if I tell him he has to spend an entire week at WDW!!!!

Hmmm... Sure would like to say don't be worried, but that is Labor Day weekend and considered by many to be the last opportunity to hit the beach for the summer. I wish you good luck. If you have the points you should walk it through, meaning reserve the full week before including your first day of your stay as the last day of the reservation, then call the next day and cancel the first day and add the next day, and so on. If you are successful cancel the remaining days you don't really want. I'm assuming this is still allowed.

Edit: Just realized you're mod w/43k posts. I'm probably not enlightening you to anything new.

We will arrive at VBR next weekend for our very first stay! Traveling from MCO to VBR how much $$ should we prepare to have for tolls?

We just drove from Vero Beach back to Orlando this past December.

We used our Sunpass and these are the charges and locations on our invoice:
Curry Ford lane ($0.82)
Bee LIne lane ($0.87)
PINE HILLS (M) ($1.09)
CONWAY (M) ($1.09)
DALLAS (M) ($0.75)

We got off the Bee Line just before the airport and headed north, so the last three charges may not apply to you. But I think there is another charge just before the airport.

In January we drove from Disneyworld to the cruise port, which is pretty close to the route you will probably take.

EASTBOUND:
Beeline West ($0.50)
Airport lane ($1.00)
Bee LIne lane ($1.50)

WESTBOUND:
Beeline West ($0.50)
Airport lane ($1.00)
Bee LIne lane ($1.50)

If you are going directly from MCO, you will miss the Beeline West toll, I believe. Sunpass also gives a discount, so those prices might be on the low side, but I think in January there were no discounts.

And since I have the information in front of me, here are the times we hit those tolls. I only mention it because for a while it will seem like they are coming up fast and furious. But once you get passed Beeline West, there are no more.
Eastbound - 10:39 / 10:44 / 10:50
Westbound - 9:55 / 10:01 / 10:05

Oh, have no worries. VB is something new to me, so I can use all the info I can get!!!! I already have BWV booked for the entire time, so hopefully can get started on that Sunday of Labor Day weekend at VB...otherwise, I'll be driving from W Palm Beach to WDW...which will not make my dh happy!!!!

We will FINALLY get to Vero Beach this summer! We got our waitlist for a 2 bedroom....June 23 - 30. We are so excited....we live in VA, will drive to NC on the 22nd and spend the night there (my 14 yr old daughter has tickets to One Direction concert) then head to Vero from there. We have driven to DW many times....how much longer is the drive from DW? Its me, DH, DD, DD's Friend and HOPEFULLY my son(who graduates high school this summer) and his friend. First timers at Vero....SO excited!!! Thanks for this wonderful informative thread!

See you in Sept! Labor Day week, along with Memorial Day week, is one of my traditional weeks to visit Vero. Can't think of a better way to celebrate the unofficial beginning and end of summer.

As I sit here in Pompano Beach, watching the sun come up over the Atlantic, I get more and more excited about my VB stay in Sept!!! Hope to touch base with you. Perhaps you can give me some tips on where to eat/what to do in our short 4 day there!!!

So excited!! DH just told me he definitely wants to return to Vero this October. We were there in an OVIR in October 2010 and October 2011. In October 2012 we used our points to take DS and DDiL to a 2 BR BCV for F & W.
We have invited DS and DDiL to join as in Vero in October. I have to wait 4- 5 weeks for the 7 month window. If they come we will be in a 2 BR, but DH decided if they don't come we will return to an OVIR.
We are looking at either the first or the second week in October.
I too am wondering about the "cliff" to reach the beach. How is it now?
