DVCNews Debates: Purchase Incentives

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesThis past week DVC finally announced the Bay Lake Towers at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Within that announcement DVC revealed that the first 1000 members to add 160 or more points would be designated Founding Members and have their name added to a plaque displayed at the resort fountain.  DVC has offered similar exclusive perks when sales began for the Animal Kingdom Villas and the contract extension for Old Key West.

Topic: Do these sorts of intangible perks play any role in your decision whether or not to add-on / extend contracts?  Which purchase incentives have historically had the most impact on your decision to buy / add-on / extend?

Treehouse Villas: What We Know So Far

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in Saratoga Springs News

On September 16, 2008, Disney Vacation Club made two very important announcements.  While the Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Villas has garnered most of the attention, thousands of Saratoga Springs owners were thrilled to hear that the Treehouse Villas were being resurrected as part of the resort they already call Home.

Details of the Treehouse Villa project have been a little harder to come by.  Eight months ago we took an early look at the Treehouse Villas before we even knew they were destined to be DVC accommodations.  Now it's time for a second look to summarize what we have learned in recent days.
