    Part 2: Vero Beach. Disney’s Vero Beach I know what you are thinking … “Vero Beach isn’t even Disney, right?”… Wrong!  I like to think of it as Disney “light.” Vero has all the amenities, service, and little Disney touches you want without the hustle and bustle and characters in your face.  I mean this in the best way (not to offend those who love the fast pace of chasing down characters).
