My family and I added Vero to our yearly pilgrimmage to WDW about 8 years ago. We add on 3-4 nights there as a vacation from our vacation. it is a well done beach resort- private beach - nice pool and tons of activities for kids and adults alike. Laid back with subtle Disney/Mickey touches.. two very nice restaurants and a nice snack shop by the pool. It's not a bad drive from WDW- taking 528 to AiA ( by Cocoa beach)- and a scenie drive southward- less than 2 hours regardless of traffic.
I highly recomend it.
