DVCNews Debates: Accessible villas

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesThe Americans with Disabilities Act requires Disney Vacation Club to construct a certain percentage of villas which are modified for disabled guests.  However the number of accessible units seems to often exceed the number of guests requiring such an accommodation.  Due to high DVC occupancy levels, able-bodied guests will occasionally find themselves assigned to an accessible villa.    These assignments are seemingly random, with the guest given little (or no) opportunity to approve or reject the assignment.


 Topic:  Should DVC change its policies toward reservations or assignments of accessible villas?  If so, how?

DVCNews Debates: Owner Mistake

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesWe all make mistakes...even Disney Vacation Club owners are not immune.  But when it comes to a vacation property which could be held for up to 50 years, those mistakes may prove costly.  

Could be something like not selecing the ideal Home resort or Use Year.  Maybe it's not buying enough points in the first place or not waiting for a new resort to come on-line.   


 Topic:  What is your biggest mistake made as a DVC owner?

 

DVCNews Debates: Spending bonus points

It's a problem some members will never have to worry about dealing with:  What would I do if extra points suddenly fell into my lap?

If you're like me, points are usually rationed out pretty carefully.  We own about 300 points and trips are often booked with careful consideration given to the most economical resort, view and even season.  But what if I suddenly found myself with 500 extra points?  For no partiuclar reason...suddenly I had 500 points to splurge on any resort, view, room size, season, etc.     


Topic:  If you had 500 on-time DVC points to use, how would you spend them?

With multiple villa sizes available at each property, Disney Vacation Club has options available to suit most parties.  From hotel-sized Deluxe Studio Villas to 3-bedroom Grand Villas measuring nearly 2000 sq ft, owners (and renters) have quite a variety to choose from.     


Topic:  What size DVC villa do you most often reserve for your stays?
