DVCNews Debates: Add-On for Perks

DVCNews Debates

In 2016, Disney Vacation Club implemented a policy requiring all new members to own points purchased direct from Disney in order to be eligible for most owner perks.  Among those limited perks are the Moonlight Magic theme park evenings, access to the Epcot lounge plus food & merchandise discounts. A direct purchase as small as 25 points would make owners eligible for the perks, but that add-on is still likely to cost consderably more than 25 resale points.

DVCNews Debates: More Extensions?

DVCNews Debates

It has been nearly 10 years since Disney Vacation Club offered 15-year contract extensions to owners at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  The general concensus was that the Old Key West offer was a failure, both in the manner it was handled and in the lukewarm reception from owners.  Still owners continue to express interest in extending their contracts, particularly at popular resorts like Disney's Beach Club Villas and Disney's BoardWalk Villas.


 Topic:  Do you think we will see another extension offer for any resort with a 2042 end date?

Recently Disney Vacation Club announced that it was replacing its Christmas season Member Mixers with Moonlight Magic exclusive evenings at Epcot.  Rather than 4-5 weeks of casual member get-togethers with free snacks, character photos and dance parties, owners would be invited to two evenings at the Epcot theme park including free admission and access to select park attractions.


 Topic:  Which exclusive offering do you prefer: 4-5 weeks of Merry Member Mixers or 2 Moonlight Magic evenings?
