DVCNews Debates: Fixed Week

DVCNews Debates

Disney Vacation Club has only offered the Fixed Week purchase option for the newest four of its fourteen properties.  The option allows buyers to secure a specific unit size and week every year without any of the uncertainty involved in making reservations.  The buyer can cancel their fixed week at any time and receive the points to use for any other booking, and the Fixed Week is guaranteed to be immune from any future point chart adjustments.  The primary downside appears to the the requirement to purchase 10% more points than the given week would actually cost if booked through normal means.    


 Topic:  If the Fixed Week option were available at the time of your DVC purchase, would you have given it any serious consideration?

DVCNews Debates: Add-On for Perks

DVCNews Debates

In 2016, Disney Vacation Club implemented a policy requiring all new members to own points purchased direct from Disney in order to be eligible for most owner perks.  Among those limited perks are the Moonlight Magic theme park evenings, access to the Epcot lounge plus food & merchandise discounts. A direct purchase as small as 25 points would make owners eligible for the perks, but that add-on is still likely to cost consderably more than 25 resale points.


 Topic:  Is it worth purchasing 25+ points direct from Disney in order to be eligible for DVC perks?
