After a very slow month for sales in August 2014, Disney Vacation Club point sales rebounded in September. Led by a 36.8% increase in sales for the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, 128,897 points were sold in September 2014, 19.1% more than the prior month. Despite the increase, sales in September were well below the 153,356 points that sales have averaged over the previous 12 months.
Villa upgrades are pretty rare in the Disney Vacation Club world. High occupancy levels are the primary reason--timeshares are designed to be near 100% occupancy year-round.
But DVC does retain a small inventory of unreserved rooms which can be used in an emergency. If a maintenance problem takes a Deluxe Studio room out of commission for a couple of days, some lucky guest may find him or herself upgraded to a vacant One Bedroom.
Topic: Have you ever been upgraded during a DVC points stay? If known, what were the circumstances of the upgrade?
Nobody likes to experience problems during their Disney Vacation Club stays, but they do happen. Could be a room maintenance issue, an injury or illnes to member of your party, some personal item that was lost during the stay...the list is endless.
In many circumstances, hopefully Disney staff are willing and able to assist in a resolution.
