Disney's Vero Beach - my pics from T-Day '13

I just posted these on the Vero Beach thread on the Vero Beach Adoration thread, but thought I'd add them here too!

Time at the resort was special. CMs were very sweet and we loved the campfire. The CM said the record for a guest was 27 S'Mores. YIKES!!!! Great pin trading in the afternoon. CMs believe they will get magic bands ( for room entry and charging) sometime later in '14. Overall, had a nice little visit. Will return someday in the future.

So here are some of my pics from our first stay at VB this past T-Day! Hope you like a LOT of pictures! Sorry if the menus are kind of hard to see, but thought you'd appreciate seeing them anyway!







Santa Goofy and Donald were out in the lobby for a special meet and greet on T-Day. I was told this was a special rare treat. There was barely a line!



Decorated lobby:







Sea turtle ornaments:






From on top of the 'lighthouse' water slide:









View from our building 12 studio balcony:





Campfire (lots of Boom Chicka Booms and S'mores!)



More in next post...

Island Grove Packing Co. (gift shop). Pin trading takes place in here during afternoons. Show your WDW AP, and you can get a discount on merch like you would at WDW resort. This is also where you can borrow DVDs to bring back to your room.

I hadn't seen a lot of pics online, so I went a little crazy.




















Last batch in next post!

Sonya's and Shutters were both open for a Thanksgiving buffet. Both shared the same banquet room where the buffet spread was maintained.











Shutters:






Sure was empty! When would you see a character breakfast like this at WDW? (I was told this was not the norm!)
