    We had "Brunch" Sunday morning. They had a few extra offerings on top of the regular breakfast menu. Other than that, the only difference is time. Sunday brunch hours are 9-1 and breakfast is served all other days until 11.

    We are enjoying the gourmet muffins and cupcakes, but especailly the Dole whips. I love the recent updates, the framed art around the resort is so pretty, and we have had the most wonderful cast members all week, in every area, especially on New Years Eve at the dance party!

    Staying at VB April 26-28, 2018. We love mini golf and wondering if there is a fee to play. We are DVC members so if there is a fee, is there a discount? Thanks.

    I was just looking at the Vero Beach 2BRs on the member website and saw that the description for a dedicated 2BR and a lockoff are the same. They say the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a pullout couch. Is that true, there are not 2 queens in the second bedroom? So what is the difference in the dedicated and lockoff at VB?

    Hi Denise,

    Though I haven't stayed in a dedicated, I have heard that you are correct about the beds
    https://www.disboards.com/threads/vero-info-please.3594209/

    Lock-offs can be divided into a studio and a 1BR while the dedicated cannot. There is a kitchenette in the lock-off second room, more room in the dedicated second room. There are half as many dedicated units all located on the street side of the villas with no dedicated entrance from outside walkway to the second bedroom. So the ocean views in a dedicated 2BR, if any at the villas, are worse.

    It sounds like the only difference between a lockoff and a dedicated 2BR at Vero Beach is that the lock off has a second exit door in the studio portion.

    Yes, but check-in when you get there so you can get access to the pool and beach area. They will text you when your room is ready.

    Agreed, you need the key card to get past the gate at both the beach and the pool.

    Just changed my 7 night BLT res to 5 night BLT and 2 night Vero Beach (May 3-4, flying home May 5th). Got a studio and waitlisted for an Ocean View.

    It's our second visit to Vero Beach. Last visit was 2010 with the (now grown) kids. It's just me and DH this time!

    GREAT way to wind down after the parks, just to relax! We love split stays, gives us a chance to experience two different resorts. ENJOY!::yes::
