DVCNews Debates

While many of the Disney Vacation Club resorts are similar, there are slight variations from one property to the next--and not just in terms of resort theming.  Additionally, guests used to a certain level of service from Disney resorts will see differences at the DVC timeshare properties, among them the lack of daily housekeeping services.  

With DVC being a rather long-term commitment, some prospective buyers are advised to stay at one or more vacation club resorts before buying.  Of course, doing so may diminish the value of the purchase as it's money spent on cash stays (or point rentals) instead of going toward the DVC purchase.

Even people on a Hawaiian vacation like to get dressed up and go trick-or-treating for Halloween. The Halloween season arrives at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawai`i, this weekend, with special activities for guests of all ages through the end of the month....

Disney Vacation Club members were among those invited to attend a Times Square event to launch Disney Parks' 2013 'Limited Time Magic' promotion.  The new promo will bring a variety of daily and weekly themed events to the Disneyland and Walt Disney World parks.  


September 2012 was a very slow month for direct sales of Disney Vacation Club points.    Only 120,348 points were sold in September, almost 90,000 points less than in August 2012.  Sales were down for each of the nine resorts that are tracked for this report.

Ever-increasing annual dues seem to be a spectre Disney Vacation Club members will have to learn to live with.  Dues include key items such as employee wages & benefits, property taxes, insurance and fuel (park transportation) which never seem to decrease in cost.  

Therefore it makes sense that DVC executives would periodically review resort budgets and consider which products or services could be reduced or eliminated to help control owner costs.
