DVCNews Debates: Wearing DVC Merch

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews Debates

Disney produces a wide array of Disney Vacation Club merchandise--items which are available for purchase online and in resort gift shops, and items which are distributed free of charge.  Even if you don't want to spend a dime on DVC items, attending a member event or visiting the Preview Center is often enough to net a complimentary baseball cap, trading pin or tote bag with the DVC name and logo.  

But do you actually make use of the items you receive?  Do you wear the baseball caps or carry the tote bags?  Do you spend additional dollars to purchase appealing items from the gift shops?


 Topic:  Do you typically wear (display) Disney Vacation Club branded merchandise?   

DVCNews Debates: Tickets

Yep, they did it again.  Ticket prices are up.  But this isn't just a run-of-the-mill price increase.  Instead, it's a price increase combined with a lower discount, resulting in Annual Passes priced nearly 10% higher than previous rates.  

And for those who may not need 365 days of non-stop theme park admission, the non-expiring passes are now a thing of the past.  No longer can guests purchase a 10-day ticket and use it for years on end.  

So will these changes impact how you visit the parks, or merely change the amount of money leaving your wallet?


 Topic:  How will you respond to the ticket price and policy changes?

Despite competition from resale outlets, the retail price of Disney Vacation Club points continues to climb.  

As recently as January 2012 buyers could purchase points at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas for $120 per point with incentives reducing the price further.  In May 2013 the Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort debuted at $145 per point.  Today the price for all three resorts being actively marketed--Aulani, Disney's Polynesian Villas and Grand Floridian--rises to $165 per point.     


 Topic:  When will the direct sale prices for Disney Vacation Club reach $200 per point?  

DVCNews Debates: Membership Magic

Disney Vacation Club's Membership Magic program is now a year old, having debuted on January 31, 2014.    

The program's goal was to provide DVC owners with a slate of exclusive experiences not typically available to the general public.  Examples include unique dining events, member nights at vendors like Splitsville and Walt Disney World spa locations, exclusive Adventures by Disney itineraries and more.    


 Topic:  Have you sampled a Membership Magic event?  If so, what did you think of it?
