    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    Yes. That is what Disney does with the contracts they take in ROFR. You might be on a waiting list. A couple of years ago we bought 25 pts at OKW so that we could buy and sell our resales without losing any benefits. It is now 75 points, I believe.

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    The word investment means a lot of things. Most people think of money. I have no idea if my DVC is saving me money. It is costing me a fortune in souvenirs, eating, tickets, and up charge events. Don’t ever mention maintenance fees around me! I can get ugly. If we didn’t own DVC we probably...

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    I like going to WDW. I feel cramped in hotel rooms. Therefore, I bought DVC. I don’t like a lot of the things Disney is doing, but unless the two requirements above change, I am keeping it. I have a contract in ROFR now that I don’t expect to pass. Please..please..please.. We may downsize...

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    What is the percentage of bungalow points specifically at Poly? It may be less across DVC, but I feel that Poly owners may need the 7 month window due to lack of studio availability there.

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    I would love someday to spend a couple of nights in a CCVC cabin. Maybe for a special occasion. They look incredible. While we own enough points to swing that, we probably won’t do it because it would mean shortening or eliminating another trip. The cabins and bungalows were meant for high...

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    Do you think that Disney is trying to put the resellers out of business and handle all resales themselves? That would be a major change. Their prices for the original 14 are prohibitive. And they are shortly going to raise them. We have several contracts and we had wanted more. With these...

    Nw Resale Restrictions as of Jan 19th

    What I don’t understand is the advantage to Disney in driving resale prices down. Right now resale prices are high and not a very large difference exists between direct and resale. I might buy direct to get attractive perks because I am not saving that much with resale. If resale prices go down...

    Cuts coming to every area of parks and resorts - thanks to Shanghai and Paris

    I don't see this problem as evidence of recent cuts. I see it as deeper than that. It reflects the divide between regular guests at the parks and those willing to pay $$$$ for special experiences. You did not get what you paid for at the park because someone was willing to pay more. Disney went...

    Surge Pricing Holding Up (Semi) Annual Increase ...

    The problem for us is the deterioration of the Disney experience. While we don't like the price increases, we would be willing to pay more if the quality of the experience remained high. We are long term Disneyphiles, having bought our first DVC points in 1992. I can't point to one specific...

    Should I sell my BLT and buy BWV or VGF?

    Financially speaking, I would hang on to the BLT points. The maintenance is cheap and the points are paid for. BLT is very popular and the points have been appreciating. However, we just sold a contract at a resort because we didn't like staying there. Owning those points was making us sad. I...

    Resort Date Of Construction

    We have never stayed at Jambo. However, we have eaten at BOMA (good) and visited the lobby. Kidani is where we stay. It is the extra bathroom for us every time. Now if HHI would only add an extra bathroom..... I like the new lighter decor a lot, but it is not an extra bathroom. LOL

    Sell SSR for HH?

    At this time, we are thinking of adding on instead of selling SSR. We have not had trouble using SSR in the past and have decided not to sell until we can't use it at the 7 month window. The same question arises, though. Where do we add on? I am leaning toward AKV because the maintenance is...

    Resort Date Of Construction

    Be careful!! You may like a resort so much that you will never want to stay anywhere else. LOL That happened to us at the AKV. We will never stay anywhere else at WDW. That said, we also like HHI a lot. When we want to save money and relax, we go there.

    The Spirited Seventh Heaven ...

    We just got back from a trip to Disney, and on this trip we spent the way we always have. However, looking at the total that we spent, I am thinking of not renewing our APs which expire in August. We don't have another trip booked and we are thinking to delay our next trip. If we stay away for 9...
