Recently some rumors popped-up on line suggesting that Disney Vacation Club resorts were moving the published arrival time from "after 4pm" to "after 5pm." DVCNews.com contacted a DVC executive who confirmed that there is no truth to this rumor.
No changes have been made to the listed arrival times. DVC resort staff will continue to make every effort to get members into their rooms as early as possible, with the goal being to accommodate all guests by 4pm daily.
One popular perk of Disney Vacation Club ownership is a subscription to the quarterly member newsletter.
The member mag has undergone a bit of evolution in recent years, culminating in its 2007 name change from Vacation Magic to DIsney Files. 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.
Topic: What is your opinion of Disney Files magazine?
MousePlanet.com contributor Steve Russo today published "A Disney Vacation Club Primer." This article is yet another great resource for anyone considering DVC membership. The article addresses basic concepts like the Use Year, banking and borrowing of points and even the point reallocation set to occur in 2010.
Website About.com has posted some photos of the new Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas (link.) Included are work-in-progress imagesof the building interiors and several balcony shots highlighing the proximity of some villas to the Sassagoula River.
The Treehouse Villas are still under contruction and the finished product is subject to change. The units are available for member stays beginning on June 1, 2009.
