We decided to visit Vero Beach this year during our family vacation to WDW. Another DISer (Barb - for real) was staying there with her family and we thought that it would be nice to spend the day with them. A helpful DVC CM at the Beach Club Villas suggested that we take the Florida Turnpike to get to Vero in order to avoid I-95. It took us a little under two hours to make the journey. When we got to Vero Beach, I went up to the front desk and, half jokingly, told the CM that we were exercising our pool hopping privileges. He asked to see my room key from Old Key West and, after verifying that we were indeed DVC members staying at OKW on points, he issued me a one day card key so that we could use the pool. As guests of our friends who were staying at Vero, we would have been allowed to use the pool anyway. But there was something special about being given a key to the pool. We spent some time swimming in the ocean before checking out the water slide at the pool. As Vero Beach is now 95% sold, I'm not certain that I can convince DW Sue that we "need" points there, but I think that we will have to seriously consider adding a stop at Vero to our next WDW vacation. Or maybe we'll just pool hop.
