DVCNews Debates: More Extensions?

DVCNews Debates

It has been nearly 10 years since Disney Vacation Club offered 15-year contract extensions to owners at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  The general concensus was that the Old Key West offer was a failure, both in the manner it was handled and in the lukewarm reception from owners.  Still owners continue to express interest in extending their contracts, particularly at popular resorts like Disney's Beach Club Villas and Disney's BoardWalk Villas.

DVCNews Debates: Mixer vs. Moonlight Magic

DVCNews Debates

Recently Disney Vacation Club announced that it was replacing its Christmas season Member Mixers with Moonlight Magic exclusive evenings at Epcot.  Rather than 4-5 weeks of casual member get-togethers with free snacks, character photos and dance parties, owners would be invited to two evenings at the Epcot theme park including free admission and access to select park attractions.


 Topic:  Which exclusive offering do you prefer: 4-5 weeks of Merry Member Mixers or 2 Moonlight Magic evenings?

DVCNews Debates

This week, Disney Vacation Club may have taken its first steps toward building villas on the grounds of what is traditionally a moderate resort. Disney's four moderate resorts--yes, we're counting French Quarter and Riverside separately--encompass a variety of themes: New Orleans French Quarter, the old south, a tropical escape and spanish/southwest influence.

DVCNews Debates: Favorite Refurb

DVCNews Debates

Over the past couple of years, more than half of the Disney Vacation Club properties experienced some form of in-room refurbishment.  Among the properties to see changes to decor and furnishings are Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Bay Lake Tower, Vero Beach, Disney's Beach Club, BoardWalk Villas, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas and even the Treehouse Villas. As expected, mixed opinions have been voiced regarding new color palettes, furniture replacements, bath tubs and other changes.  Hopefully some design hits the mark with members.

DVCNews Debates: Best & Worst of Grand Floridian

DVCNews Debates

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort is viewed by many as the flagship resort at Walt Disney World.  And the Disney Vacation Club component added in 2013 is a worthy namesake to that property.  Elegant touches and expensive furnishings are visible throughout the villas.  However the villa wing is also somewhat isolated from the main resort, lacking its own amenities.  Per-night room costs reached an all-time high, yet the small size of the DVC build out makes it one of the hardest properties to book at 7 months.
