DVCNews Debates: Universal Studios

DVCNews Debates

Universal Studios Florida has been very aggressive in trying to attract tourists to its resort complex; new attractions, new hotels, new waterpark.  But there are challenges to guests looking to venture beyond the "walled garden" that is Walt Disney World.  Ticket prices favor extended visits to the Disney Parks.  Transportation can be an issue, particularly for those using Disney's Magical Express.  And Universal's front-of-the-line service is only available to those staying at their hotels...or willing to pay a steep price.

DVCNews Debates: Member Cruise Worth It?

DVCNews Debates

Disney Vacation Club typically offers its owners at least one exclusive cruise experience per year.  The cruises are often priced higher than a comparable cruise of the same dates and duration, with members treated to exclusive gifts and special guests not found on a typical DCL sailing.  Unfortunately these special perks are never disclosed prior to booking, making it something of a crapshoot at the time owners must commit to the trip.

DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of Saratoga Springs

DVCNews Debates

It was once known as the Disney Institute--Michael Eisner's attempt to merge Disney travel and adult education programs.  But as a tourism slump plagued Walt Disney World in the early part of this century, Disney Vacation Club was brought in to rejuvinate the lagging property.  Despite being the only DVC resort with an integrated golf clubhouse, two feature pools, extensive spa facilities and easy access to Disney Springs, Saratoga Springs is not always viewed as a favorite among members.

DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of Beach Club

DVCNews Debates

In the minds of some, it's the undisputed king of Walt Disney World resorts.  Between the appealing beach theme, elaborate Stormalong Bay pool complex and its proximity to Epcot, there's a lot to like about Disney's Beach Club Villas.  But it can't be perfect, right?

Rather than building new hotel / timeshare properties at Walt Disney World, the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge started a pattern of Disney Vacation Club expansions to existing resorts.  The resort itself opened in 1994 with the DVC wing debuting in late 2000.  For many years, Wilderness Lodge was the closest thing DVC owners would have to a Magic Kingdom destination.
