The Resort

Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is a quaint beachside resort that makes you feel like you are relaxing in a beach cottage from another era. The lobby is full of old-fashioned charm, and also pays homage to the sea turtle nesting grounds that are located along Vero Beach with the turtle footprints imbedded in the flooring.

You’ll find lots of seating areas to mingle with family and other guests, and even a little free library.

The Beach

Vero Beach’s standout feature is none other than it’s sprawling beach! This private beach requires a room reservation to enter and is only for guests staying at the resort. Vero Beach Resort’s beach is kept very clean, and guests are able to rent either chairs or cabanas for the entire day. The beach goes on for miles and has several turtle nesting sites that are sectioned off via flags and caution tape. Boogie boards, kayaks, banana boats, and more are also available for guests to rent. There is even a beachside food delivery service so you never have to leave your spot!
