DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of Wilderness Lodge

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews Debates

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.

DVCNews Debates: Better Perk Choices

DVCNews Debates

Disney Vacation Club has launched some rather impressive perks in 2016, ostensibly to recognize the timeshare program's 25th anniversary.  Among the most noteworthy are the exclusive member lounge in Epcot and the private after-hours events at the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon.

However, some members have been critical of these exclusives.  Complaints range from the lounge being "boring" and "a waste of time" to the limited number of dates for the after-hours events.


 Topic:  If you feel that these are poor choices for member exclusives, what sort of alternatives would you recommend?

DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of BoardWalk

In the summer of 1996, Disney Vacation Club finally got back into the near-theme park business with the opening of Disney's BoardWalk Villas.  The second DVC property at Walt Disney World was added to the charming Crescent Lake area, giving members easy access to the Epcot theme park via its rear International Gateway entrance.  Between the charming location and nightly point costs equal or nominally higher than Disney's Old Key West Resort, BoardWalk is often mentioned as a favorite of owners.

DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of Hilton Head

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

Remember when the off-site Disney Vacation Club resorts outnumbered those adjacent to theme parks?  No?  Well, that was the case for a few months in early 1996 following the opening of Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.  

The Atlantic seaboard community is split between the inner island resort and a Beach House on the coast.  With multiple pools, restaurants, Community Hall and many resort activity programs, the Hilton Head property has a lot to offer its guests.

DVCNews Debates: Beach modifications

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesLet's take a brief detour from our current best/worst resort series to tackle a timely subject.  The full extent of Walt Disney World's beach alterations and policy changes is now seemingly known.  Beaches have reopened, but with daily operating hours.  Fences and new signage are in place.    


 Topic:  What do you think of these physical and policy changes?  Too much...not enough...just right?
