Disney unveiled a special member-only sales offer for Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows in February 2016, the first wide scale promotional offer for the resort. Members responded very favorably to the “Member 25th Anniversary” offer, resulting in the Polynesian posting its best month ever for sales in March 2016.
With Disney Vacation Club's new restriction on member perks, certain benefits will only be available to buyers who purchase points directly from DVC. Still the value of those member perks may not justify the added expense. Resorts like Bay Lake Tower, Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort are priced in the neighborhood of $120-140 per point on the secondary market while DVC asks $180 per point. Buyers must consider whether the perks are worth the added investment of a direct purchase.
Topic: On a per-point basis, what sort of value would you assign to the current slate of Disney Vacation Club owner perks?
