We arrive on Sept 1, Sunday. I really want a nice dinner for dh and myself. It looks like Sonya's is open only on our first night. Should I plan on making reservations for that night??? It is Labor Day weekend, so not sure if it might be busier.
And if I should make reservations, how to best do that?? Should I call MS?

We just booked five nights at VB in a Inn - Garden View room for June 1st. We usually go to HHI and had ressies there for Sept. but decided to change to VB for June instead, mainly because our DD is getting married a couple of weeks earlier in May and we felt like we would need a little getaway ourselves after the wedding. Plus we didn't want to wait until Sept. to go to the beach. We've never stayed at VB, but did take a tour of it one time on our way down to Ft. Lauderdale for a cruise. We are very excited about this trip.

A question - what is the golf course situation at VB? I'd love to play a round while down there in June. Any public courses with reasonable rates nearby? Thanks.

I would recommend making a reservation if you want to ensure going to Sonya's. An option that my DH and I enjoy is: http://www.citrusgrillhouse.com/mainmenu.htm if you don't mind a drive about 15 min. south of the resort.

We found last year that right after Labor Day weekend there are some fantastic restaurant deals. Many were early bird specials, but the prices made it worth dining so early. I wish I could remember the name of the Lobby Concierge Cast Member who gave us great dining recommendations last year.

One big reason my dh loves Florida is the abundance of early bird specials!!! You should see him when visiting family in the Ft Lauderdale area..he fits right in with the little old men down there...waiting to eat dinner by 5!!!
Thanks!!

We will be driving from MCO to Vero Beach. Then, we'll need to return our rental to Port Canaveral before our cruise.

- How much money are we looking at for tolls? Will I need to have a roll of quarters ready?

- What rental car company is best for MCO to VB to PC?

Another restaurant we have enjoyed for a "special night" is the Ocean Grill in Vero Beach. It is about 15 minutes south. It is good to go before sunset and request a window table. The view is of the ocean and the food is great. We go to celebrate our Anniversary when in Vero in October

We stayed at Vero for the first time in November 2012. Wow! Loved that place so much that we are going back at the end of aug. both stays are in the Inn, this time ocean view. I can't wait to go back. If anyone has any dining suggestions, that would be great!

We are heading down for two days before our DCL in March (20-22) and spent the extra points on a cottage. Any advice on good/bad points of the various cottages? We stayed at a one bedroom two years ago and loved all the activities, the pool, and walks on the beach.

I tried sending you the IMG address, but when it posts it changes to the icon. Try hitting right click and properties to the one in my signature and see if that works.
