July 28: Vero Beach Vacation Club

On this day in 1994 a ground breaking took place for a new Disney Vacation Club in Vero Beach, Florida.

Disney's Vero Beach (which opened in October 1995) is the first Disney Vacation Club to be built outside of the Walt Disney World area.

Consisting of a main building (known as The Inn) and various Villas and Cottages, the resort sits along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, thus creating a "private beach" for guests.

Among the resort's offerings ... a Mickey Mouse-shaped swimming pool, a Peter Pan-themed miniature golf course, 3 restaurants and a quick-service food & beverage counter.

A volleyball court, soccer field, fishing pier, lighted tennis courts, and a basketball hoop are located across the street from the resort. Guests can safely cross the busy A1A highway via an 
underground passage.
