UPDATE:  Note that this offer ONLY applies to purchases at the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.  However, reports indicate that this offer can be combined with the referral incentives which run through August 25, 2009.  Through 8/25, new buyers at the Grand Californian can save up to $24 per point (from the $112 base price) and receive the $500 Disney Visa promotion.

DVCNews Debates: One Bedroom Occupancy

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews DebatesDisney Vacation Club ownership documents officially list the maximum occupancy of most One Bedroom villas as 4 guests.  Over the years that occupancy was expanded to 4 guests plus 1 under age three.  More recently DVC has begun to allow up to 5 guests of any age (despite the units having sleeping accommodations for only 4 guests.)

This unofficial policy has lead some members to question when / if the policy will be interpreted differently by DVC.  

Should Disney Vacation Club officially acknowledge the higher occupancy in all One Bedroom villas?  If so, should they consider adding the sleeper chairs or convertible armoires (a la Grand Californian Villas) for the 5th guest with member dues billed for the expense?  Or should DVC go back to enforcing the original occupancy limit of these units?
