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.

DVCNews Debates: Perk Availability

DVCNews Debates

Disney Vacation Club recently began offering a behind-the-scenes tour of Soarin' to its members on both coasts.  As one of the most popular theme park attractions, the tour quickly gained interest among members.  Unfortunately, many owners were left disappointed as they discovered that only 20 participants were allowed per day.  At Walt Disney World, six months' worth of tour dates were completely filled within minutes of their opening.   


 Topic:  Should DVC even offer perks of this nature if availability is so severely limited?
