Character Meal Comes to Vero

Vero Beach Resort

Throughout the summer months, Disney Vacation Club members staying at the Vero Beach Resort will be able to dine with Donald andGoofy decked-out in their pirate garb.



Disney's Vero Beach Resort introduces Pirate Character Dinner

On Monday nights (5-10 p.m.) from Memorial Day (May 25, 2009) through Labor Day (Sept. 7, 2009), Shutters at Disney's Vero Beach Resort hosts the new Pirate Character Dinner, featuring appearances by Pirate Donald and Pirate Goofy, along with a family-style, all-you-care-to-eat dinner. Think of it as an epic summer blockbuster, only with less Johnny Depp and more pulled pork.

The bounty includes such swashbuckling highlights as guava barbeque ribs, rotisserie chicken, brisket, barbeque pulled pork, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and baked beans. (For the traditional Shutters menu, walk the plank next door to Sonya's. Sorry, no more pirate references.)

The cost is $26.99 for adults and $12.99 for children ages 3-9. Advance reservations are recommended, so call (772) 234-2180 to reserve your place at the table, lest ye end up in Davey Jones' locker (okay, one more pirate reference).

It's all part of Pirate Day, filling summer Mondays with pirate-themed events and recreational activities. (Note that while these activities are fun for everyone, they're even more fun for those dressed in pirate costumes, so pack accordingly.)
