DVCNews Debates: 7-Month Availability

DVCNews Debates

There has always been uncertainty involved in booking a non-Home resort 7 months prior to arrival.  With owners at each property having 4 months' priority to secure reservations, high demand resorts, views and villa sizes have a tendency to be at-or-near full occupancy before non-owners can book.  

Adding more members to the program would seem to place more pressure on select high-demand locations...but adding new high-demand resort options (like the Grand Floridian) could also help reduce the strain on some resorts.  

 Topic:  In recent years, have you found it to be easier, harder or about the same to secure a reservation at non-Home resorts?




DVCNews Debates: Founding Member

DVCNews Debates

With most recent Disney Vacation Club resort debuts, current owners were offered the opportunity to earn "founding member" status by being among the first to purchase points.  Among the perks of the Founding Member designation was some form of recognition at the resort itself--like the fountain tiles at Bay Lake Tower--or a special keepsake like the framed print given to the first group of Grand Californian owners.  

 Topic:  Do Founding Member perks influence your decision to add-on at a new property?  Would some extra bonus sway you to purchase points at the Polynesian Villas when offered?
