DVCNews Debates: Cash Guest Promos

DVCNews DebatesCash guests have it pretty good at Walt Disney World.  During slower times of they year, they are offered special package deals, 20-30% savings off of normal hotel rates, free dining plan credits, complimentary room upgrades and more!  (Of course, cash guests are also paying far more for their lodging than the DVC member's price for a single year of their contract, but let's ignore that for the moment.)    


 Topic:  If Disney were to offer one of these promotional specials to DVC members, which would you like to receive?

Free Dining would be nice -- cherylf

I know we don't pay what the cash guests pay so it's probably unrealistic to expect free dining, but during these promo periods it would be nice to get a very reduced cost for our dining plans or a plan upgrade (pay for regular and get deluxe or pay for the quick service plan and get the regular).

Great idea. I was thinking it would be nice if we evengot the snack credits only during the free dining promotions. But since free dining is a lure to fill cash rooms at full price, I too doubt it will ever happen.

Disney sometimes offers cash guests "bounce back" room discounts on future stays, with the savings being as much as 30-40% off the normal rate. There are times we extend our DVC stays by booking a cash room at a non-DVC resort, so it would be nice to be offered a bounce back discount on future cash stays.

I notice during our stay at Copper Creek this week that the bounce back offer in the flyer in our studio mentions Disney and DVC resorts. So I would think members could use that offer too. It was 30% for a deluxe resort or DVC Resort, 20% for a moderate and 10% for a value.

i was surprised that the come back offers were not better that the limited time offers Disney does a couple of times a year. I thought the comeback offers used to be 40% off.

​Not quite sure how to interpret the question?? I am a DVC member, but that doesn't mean I can't book a cash trip using whatever the current Promo is. In fact, if the price were right, these are great opportunities for spur of the moment trips, something that can't always happen using points.
