Disney has broken ground on a $3.8 million dollar renovation project at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, a  20 year old inn and DVC property located along the Atlantic Coast in Vero Beach, Florida located  just 2 hours south of Walt Disney World.

The renovations will result in the closure this month of Sonya’s signature dining restaurant.  Famed for its wood-fired steaks and seafood specialties, Sonya’s will officially close its doors on April 30th.  Plans are also afoot to close Shutter’s table service restaurant, the home of Beachside Sunday Brunches, a Goofy character breakfast and  the Pirate Character Dinner during the month of June. Bleachers Bar and Grill which has long been serving up hamburgers, ice cream treats and libations will also finish pulling pints this summer.

In their wake, a new table service restaurant, a marketplace dining room catering to quick service diners and a new poolside bar are slated to open in the Autumn of 2016.

Vero Beach, the first of Disney’s offsite Vacation Club properties will also undergo extensive renovations to its  guest rooms, beachfront cottages and villas including updates to both hard a soft furnishings. Opened in 1995, the renovations are anticipated to give the rooms a more contemporary updated feel.

Refurbishments are expected to near completion by the end of 2016.
