Once again it was time to use our Disney Vacation Club points. Last year we used them to go to Hilton Head, South Carolina. This year we decided to try a resort a little closer: Vero Beach, Florida. It actually ended up being closer than we thought: only an hour and a half to get here.
Since the resort has a full kitchen, we started out vacation with a trip to Publix. We were going to already be spending money eating out and on various excursions. Better if we can eat a few meals in. The rest of the afternoon was spent swimming at the pool.
The first night I walked across the street to pick up some pizzas from a local joint. Then, I hooked up my MacBook Air to the TV and we watched a movie over Netflix streaming. After the movie we headed over to an event that must be at every Disney Resort: campfire sing-along with s’mores.
In the morning we had breakfast at the resort and we were accompanied by Donald and Goofy. I think the girls are officially getting too old for the Disney characters. Abby insisted that none of the characters should touch her on the head. The rest of the day was spent at the pool and lounging around the room. In the evening, we dropped the girls off for three hours of actives and dinner while Jennifer and I snuck off to have a nice meal.
