DVCNews Debates: Best rental approach

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews Debates For the first 15-20 years of Disney Vacation Club's existence, owners looking to rent excess points had to do all of the legwork themselves.  Listings could be posted to a number of sites including the DISBoards or eBay, looking for non-members willing to rent for a fixed price. 

More recently services like DVCRequest.com have emerged.  These rental brokers pair up the owners and non-owners, requiring much less work for the owner while taking a portion of the rental proceeds.


 Topic:  When/if you rent excess points, do you prefer to handle the transaction yourself or work through a broker?

DVCNews Debates: Resale restrictions

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesIn 2011 Disney Vacation Club introduced a number of restrictions on points purchased via the resale market.  Most notably, resale points cannot be used to book most non-DVC destinations including Disney cruises.  

At the time, some owners were openly critical of the move, claiming that it can only harm owners and contract resale values.  Others view it as a modest perk which benefits those who buy direct.    


 Topic: Opinion on resalre restrictions--good, bad or indifferent?

DVCNews Debates

This is not the first time we've debated this topic and it won't be the last.  Impressions seem to change frequently over time.  

With Disney's Polynesian Villas creeping ever closer to completion, it's time to begin pondering where they will next break ground.  Among the most popular rumors are a DVC hotel on the Ft. Wilderness campground, a second Contemporary tower, another Disneyland property, Disney's Yacht Club, a new stand-alone property and even conversion of a Walt Disney World Moderate-class resort.  


Topic:  Where do you think Disney will build the next DVC resort?

 

 

DVCNews Debates: Vacation savings

Even with Disney Vacation Club points to pay for the room, discounted ticket media and dining discounts, Disney vacations are still an expensive venture.  A family of four could spend well over $2000 for annual passes, hundreds of dollars per day to eat and thousands just for transportation to the Orlando or Anaheim area.  

Rather than paying 18% on a credit card, it makes sense to have a plan to pay those bills when they occur.   


Topic:  How do you go about saving for your Disney vacations?
