Similar Disney Vacation Club accommodations can often go for very different nightly point rates depending upon the resort and room class. For instance, a Studio villa at Disney's Old Key West Resort costs at little as 8 points per night in Adventure Season while a comparable unit with a Magic Kingdom View at the Bay Lake Tower is 17 points per night. With many options available ranging from economical to luxurious, it raises the question of which approach members prefer and why.
With the banking and borrowing provisions afforded to Disney Vacation Club members, realistically one could still justify membership even with trips taken every-other-year or even once every three years. Still with the variety of Disney experiences offered--not to mention frequent visitor perks like the Annual Pass discount--many DVC members appear to visit much more than once every 2 to 3 years.

Disney Files arrives in members' mailboxes every 3 months providing a look at pending DVC projects, trade destinations available through RCI, member perks, resort happenings, other news from throughout the Disney corporate empire and more.
