Disney's Wilderness Lodge will soon be home to two separate Disney Vacation Club Properties: the original villas renamed Boulder Ridge and the newer component dubbed Copper Creek Villas & Cabins.  Copper Creek points are now on sale for around $165 each (with incentives) for a 50-year contract, 11 month access to the lakefront cabins and participation in DVC discount programs.  Meanwhile Boulder Ridge points can be purchased on the resale market for around $90 per point for 24-25 years of ownership.

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?
