    AKV has actually only gone up <3% each of the last three years (1.8% in 2016, 2.7% in 2017, and 2.6% for 2018). Over the past five years (2014-2018) the annual growth rate has averaged 3.6%. BLT on the other hand, has averaged 6.2% since opening in 2011, with all but one year over 5%.

    The annual dues statement is always a kick in teeth every year just like any annual bill. But once the smoke clears I always remind myself of the value we get out of it. Our statement is about 1300$ this year but that got us 13 nights at Aulani this coming January. This will be our third trip (2nd in as many years) and something we would have never have been able to do without DVC.

    When wife and I went to Disney in 2010 I remember paying about 140$ a night for POFQ. Now its about 250$ or so before taxes. We rented points for our trip in September and it was cheaper to rent points than stay at most moderates.

    The only real killer for us the exchange rate.

    Good information
    Maybe the Bay Lake increases are higher because of the constant maintenance needed in the stained, nicked rooms. Hopefully the last refurb helped - we haven't used BL for a few years. We gave our points to my BIL last year and he seemed to like the room.

    Location is part of the expense for BLT. I expect when DHS opens all it's new attractions and they start revamping Epcot, the Epcot resorts will suddenly have increased tax assessments. Also opening a separate check in counter and customer service in the BLT lobby really increased the operating costs.
    I also think that DVC made the mistake of using the assessment amount that the county would use figuring the first assessment. The next year the resort was opened 12 months versus 4 month. And then two years later MK began a major overhaul and adding the new Fantasyland.
