DVCNews Debates: In-Room improvement

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesDisney Vacation Club villas are equipped with dozens of items both big and small.  Furniture, appliances, dishware, mattresses, towels, toilet paper, light bulbs...the list goes on and on.  

But DVC executives have to walk a fine line between providing items which adequatly meet guest needs without being extravant or costly to maintain.  As such, guests will invariably find themselves disappointed with the style or quality of villa amenities.


  Topic:  If you could change (improve) ONE item stocked in DVC villas, what would it be?

DVCNews Debates: Dining Events

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesFor several years, the Tables in Wonderland program has sponsored periodic exclusive dining events.  Cardholders have access to a number of multi-course dinners and wine tastings featuring exclusive cuisine, locations and themes throughout Walt Disney World property.  More recently Disney Vacation Club has jumped on the bandwagon and plans to offer similar unique opportunities to its members.  

Participation for each event is limited with many accommodating just 30-50 guests.  Fees can run $100-200 per person depending upon the nature of the event.  


 

 Topic:  Have you ever attended one of these unique dining events?  Do you hope to attend one in the future?

DVCNews Debates: Off-site dining

DVCNews Debates

While Walt Disney World is home to literally dozens of restaurants and other dining locations, they are not always the most economical places to grab a meal.  Guests with access to transportation can find lower prices and often better quality just off Disney property.  

However, venturing outside of the "Disney magic" isn't worth the effort for all guests.  


 Topic: Do you ever dine outside of Disney property during your stays, or do you prefer to stick to the Disney resort and theme park restaurants? 

 

 

DVCNews Debates: MS Wait Time

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesReports from many Disney Vacation Club members suggest that wait times at DVC Member Services have grown considerably in recent months.  It seems rare for a call to be answered immediately. Typical wait times can range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes or more.  

The extended waits may be attibutable to seasonal increases in phone traffic, questions about the MyMagic+ program, new Membership Magic programs bookable through Member Services and other factors.  


 Topic: Have you found Member Services wait times to be excessive in recent months?  If so, what is a reasonable standard to which DVC should strive? 

 

DVCNews Debates: Retirement

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesMany Disney theme park fans may dream of retiring to their favorite vacation destination.  Imagine spending weeks or months surrounded by the "Disney magic."  

And Disney Vacation Club helps make that dream more affordable.  Sure there are the initial buy-in costs to consider and the ever increasing annual dues.  But it's still cheaper than paying cash to stay in a Disney hotel room. 


 Topic: Is Disney Vacaton Club part of your retirment planning?
