The Vero Beach Resort itself looked to be in very good shape despite Hurricane Matthew passing just a few miles east of the shore. However, a lot of the beach sand was washed away by Matthew. A local resident said the even Hurricane Nicole, which was much further out at sea, churned up the Vero surf and attributed to some of the beach erosion.
Soon, we will post photos of what the Vero beach looks now. If anyone has photos of what the Vero beach looked like in the past, please post them so we can make comparisons.

Thanks for the update on VB DVC. We will be there in December and looking forward to trying the new restaurant and refurbished rooms. We're happy that Hurricane Matthew mostly spared the resort. I hope the beach erosion is not too bad. I have attached a few photos of the beach from a previous visit in 2007.
These were from August 11th and 13th of this year. I noticed the "shelf" looks gone and it looks like the beach could have lost 20 feet or more.
They were telling us they lost about 15 feet of elevated sand.
Scheduled upcoming Disney trips:
11/30/17 - 12/14/17 - Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary Resort
03/01/18 - 03/08/18 - Copper Creek at the Wilderness Lodge
Heading to Vero
We are heading to Vero for the week of Thanksgiving. We will be checking in on the 18. I keep hearing that the restaurants should be opening up around the 15th. Does anyone have any updates. I will post menus from the new restaurant if they are open and have not already been posted.
We were at Vero Beach last month and were told that the new Wind & Waves Grill (replacing the Shutters Restaurant) would have a soft opening on November 13 and then begin taking reservations on November 20. With luck, Vero is still on schedule and will meet those target dates.
