Disney’s Vero Beach Resort

With great ocean views and endless activities available, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is the perfect destination for a family or couple to have a nice beach vacation. The rooms are updated and spacious with balconies overlooking either the ocean or a garden. If you have a larger family, there are two level cottages that fit 10-12 people. You get to enjoy the crystal clear ocean on the resort’s private beach. For the adventurous types, there are hiking and kayaking trips you can sign up for at the resort and for the people looking to relax, there is a spa right in the main building. Your kids will have plenty to do with a big pool and slide and mini golf. Here are some pictures that capture some of the beauty of this ocean front resort. 

Disney Unplugged – When Your Batteries Die

The unthinkable sometimes happens. The battery in your cell phone has died. How to survive in Disney now.

1. Take a deep breath and relax. The twitterverse and Snapchat will be there when you get back to them.

2. Look around, you are in Disney World! This is the happiest place on earth. Between rides and shows and people watching, you will be entertained.

3. Take advantage of PhotoPass and Memory Maker. You will find Disney photographers all over and the pictures come out amazing! Don’t worry, you won’t miss any good shots.

4. If you really need to be connected, each Park has the ability to charge your phone for you. Go to guest services and they can help you out. You could also purchase a Fuelrod battery charger.

My cell phone died today. I hate to admit it but I am always on my phone. Always in Twitter and Facebook and Snapchat. It was actually pretty freeing. I may try to disconnect even if I don’t have to. Maybe I’ll see things that I didn’t even know were there.


Feeling Charged Up About the Fuelrod System Currently Being Offered at Disney Parks

I am currently sitting in Hollywood Studios, barely any charge in my phone and my day is just starting but I’m not worried. In the past year, Disney has installed a system that eases the stress of a dead phone on vacation.

Each park has a station(or two) that provides portable chargers AND the cord attachments for the most popular smartphones(Samsung, and Apple gen 1-4 and Apple gen 5-7). But this is not the best part! When your charger dies, you just go back to the station and they give you a new charger. You just insert the rod, but keep the cords, and a fully charged fuel rod comes your way!


The initial cost of a fuelrod is $30 but if you order it on the Disney parks app before your trip, the price is $25 and the first time you pay is the ONLY time you pay! In my opinion, this option is the best for me. I have bought many portable chargers, for less money of course, but guess what, I forget all of them, or they’re dead or it doesn’t last long. I love the fact that when it dies, I don’t have to worry about charging it, I just give it back to the machine and it gives me another! I think this is a great thing for Florida residents who visit Disney a lot. Or the Disney/Theme Park bloggers who are always looking charge.
