TouringPlans #Everywhere – I’m Going to Vero Beach Resort!

Many, many months ago an article was posted announcing the coolest project ever. A group of Touring Plans bloggers was going to take the Disney universe by storm, dropping one of us in every location around the world for a first of its kind blogging event. It’s called TouringPlans #Everywhere, and much like all of you I was looking forward to reading about it. Imagine my shock and absolute delight when I was invited to join the event by heading to Vero BeachI’m still pinching myself, and the best part is I get to take you all with me!

So what have I done to plan? Well, I suppose writing this article is a start. To be fair, I’m planning a vacation to Tokyo Disneyland first that has been taking up most of my time. Also, since Vero Beach is just a couple hours away, it doesn’t feel like a vacation that needs a ton of planning. It feels more like a beach weekend where you don’t pack more than your bathing suit. I don’t want that to make it sound like I’m not excited, though. If you can believe it, when I’m heading to Vero Beach it will be the only Disney location aside from Hong Kong I haven’t visited! So let’s take a look at what’s there:

Day Spa

I’m not a spa girl, but my hubby has volunteered if anyone is curious about the spa services offered at Vero Beach. Taking a look at their page, it looks like this is a big draw for the property. They offer everything from hot stone massages to pedicures. They even have tween services. I’ll be sure you get you all the information on this luxury treat!

Dining

Wow, we are not going to go hungry! I was surprised to find Signature, Character, Casual, Quick Service, and Lounge dining all offered at this one resort. I’m especially excited to see unique character dining offered! I’m a sucker for Disney characters in new outfits. It even looks like there is a pirate themed dinner. Ahoy! (and yummy!)

Recreation

Of course, there are pools and the beach, but I was curious what else Disney had up its sleeve at this location. It looks like there is quite a list! I’ve found information on outdoor activities like tennis, fishing, surfing, bike rentals, and golf. There’s also an arcade that I’m sure we’ll be spending some time visiting. Most exciting for me is a Campfire Sing-A-Long! These are always so fun, I’m excited to try one on the beach. (I wonder if the characters will show up??)

Kids Programs

While we don’t have kids, I know that information is important to lots of guests visiting. I’ll be sure to round up everything about activities for kids and teens. From the information online it appears organized activities are available for kids from 4-19 years of age, leaving time for Mom and Dad to visit that signature dining spot I mentioned above! 😉

That is what I have so far, but this is where you come in! What do you want to know about Disney’s Vero Beach Resort? Have you visited before? Do you have any tips for me? Please let me know in the comments below. As always, thanks so much for reading and commenting. I can’t wait to take every one of you on vacation with me! 🙂

    Would love to know if beach is clean and water clear and if you can walk forever like hilton head. And I hope this will show the pros and cons. Not just pros. Thanks can’t wait. Really want to go here

    There is a restaurant about 15 minutes away called Squid Lips which is amazing. All the cast members told us to go there when we went for our first time. If you are going during turtle egg laying season, walk on the beaches at night, you could be luckily enough to see a mommy turtle lay her eggs.

    We have stayed here twice once I realized it was only 10 minutes away from my Grandma (who is now gone). However – It is a great place to stay! The DVC members who frequent this place are like family 🙂 The campfire did not have characters when we were there but they may have now. The beach is “fenced off” so that this is a private section for the resort but I am sure you can get around them to stroll on the beach (we never tried). Have fun! It was much like a WDW resort, just without the parks, monorail & buses. There is plenty for adults to do there & in the area.
