Disney's Vero Beach Resort is currently underway with a multi-million dollar guest room and restaurant refurbishment project.

Guest rooms will be completely refitted with new hard and soft goods, bringing a much needed update to the dated look of the rooms.

The signature table service restaurant, Sonya's, will close at the end of April 2016, with the Shutters table service restaurant and Bleachers Pool bar closing later in June.

In the fall, a new table service restaurant will open, along with a quick service marketplace restaurant, and a new poolside bar. During the closure, a temporary dining options will be available.

Penny Hill Beach Emporium. If you are looking at the resort from the beach, it's on the left. Great sandwiches!

We'll be first timers there this summer...sounds like good information to know. Would you mind sharing the name of the sandwich shop please?

Man those prices. They should hope that a majority of hotel guest never figure out that there is a sandwich shop 100 feet away that has twice the food for half the price.

Glad to see the rooms getting some love. However, we loved Sonyas and hate to see it go. Shutters didn't do anything for us so maybe a change will help that for us. In any event, can't wait to go back after everything is done.

I wonder if they are removing the Jacuzzi Tubs from the 1, 2 Bedroom and Grand Villas (Cottages) as well. So they are going from two dining options to one dining option and a quick service option?

Really bummed by this news. I was so frustrated years ago when Shutters stopped serving lunch; my family always had such wonderful meals there. My late grandmother absolutely LOVED going there for lunch; it so brightened her spirits. Will definitely try to go there one more time before they close later this summer.

Wow this is great! We just had our first stay at Vero Beach this past fall and it was great, but it definitely needed a refresh. Gives me a reason to go back in 2017!
