An Idyllic Beach Practically at Your Doorstep

Turn-of-the-Century Nautical Theming

Like all DVC resorts, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort features immersive, highly detailed theming that lets you escape the everyday and lose yourself in magic. From the light neutral hues and beachy decor of the lodgings to the richer wooden cladding and nautical knickknacks of Wind and Waves Grill, to the pirate-themed recreational amenities and elegant turn-of-the-century architecture, the design elements are eclectic but all of a piece.

Dining Options at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort

The nautical theming continues at the on-site restaurant, Wind and Waves Grill. Wrapped in warm wooden cladding and festooned with nautical curios, Wind and Waves Grill is an upscale sit-down restaurant with a wide range of breakfast and dinner options highlighting fresh-caught seafood. Pressed for time? Wind and Waves Market offers a variety of grab-and-go items, as well as made-to-order light bites like sandwiches, salads, and burgers. The resort also features two bars: the Green Cabin Room, serving high-end cocktails, and the poolside Wind and Waves Bar, where you’ll find wine, beer, and specialty drinks.

Tour de Turtles

One of the most unique things about Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is its commitment to conservation. The resort shares space with a primary nesting area for the loggerhead sea turtle. In keeping with Walt Disney’s eco-friendly legacy, it was designed for minimal impact on their nesting grounds. Since hatchlings use moonlight to guide them back to the sea, the resort’s east-facing windows are tinted to minimize interference by interior lights, and all exterior lights face away from the ocean.

Every July, Disney further demonstrates its commitment with the annual Tour de Turtles. Held in partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy, Vero Beach Resort’s Tour de Turtles is a fun, educational event tracking the turtles’ nesting patterns as they make their way to their nesting and feeding grounds. In addition, it provides the turtles a safe place to nest and ensures the hatchlings safely return to the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic. This is a one-of-a-kind vacation experience you won’t want to miss, and one you won’t soon forget.

McKee Botanical Garden

As you stroll the lushly landscaped 18-acre grounds, you’ll see everything from exotic and endemic plants to water lily ponds, to sculptural art. Also featured are exhibits highlighting the history of the Garden, a gift shop, and a cafe with outdoor seating. In 1998, McKee Botanical Garden was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

Other highlights include a tidal pool, as well as a treasure museum showcasing artifacts salvaged from the 1715 wreck of a Spanish fleet.

Go Golfing Near Disney’s Vero Beach Resort

Love golf? You’ll find several championship and executive golf courses just minutes away from Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. Test your accuracy on the par-3 Vista Plantation. Or, test your long game on the 6,968-yard Dunes Course at Sandridge Golf Club. Other excellent courses include Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club, The Moorings Golf and Country Club, and Bent Pine Golf Club.

Vero’s mild weather means you can golf any time of the year. Winter is prime golf season in Vero, while summer golfing can be a bit on the warmer side. However, rates are cheaper in the summer, and there’s a chance you’ll have the course all to yourself!

Vero Beach is made up of two distinct parts: the Anytown-USA mainland, and the moneyed beachfront. Ocean Drive epitomizes Vero Beach’s more glamourous side. Here, you’ll find some of Vero’s best restaurants, such as The Tides, Ocean Grill, Citrus Grill, and Maison Martinique. Ocean Drive also boasts a variety of boutiques and vintage shops offering everything from art to clothing, to jewelry, to home decor and hand-made crafts.
