There is not really a system for owners to vote on every line item of the budget. The nature of these particular charges is a little confusing. The DVC news link states that Disney intends to pay the cost of the initial bedding transition, but members dues will cover the cost of future bedding replacements and other related charges. It doesn't sound like it will be a one time charge that will result in dues going back down next year. However, it should not be a driver of an increase next year either since it will already be in the budget and dues. To answer your question about Disney pocketing the difference, that can't really happen. The DVC dues are set based on budgets and can only be used to cover actual costs and/or set up reserves for future capital improvements. This is a requirement under FL law for all timeshares. The budgets and actual spend are subject to annual audits by an independent accounting firm (audit fees are a component of the dues themselves). The only thing Disney can really "profit" from with DVC dues is maybe allocating a larger portion of shared services expense to DVC at resorts like BLT or BWV where there are both hotel rooms and DVC units. Even that allocation is most likely subject to audit so they can't really stretch it too far.
