    Is Riviera a DVC addition to Caribbean Beach?

    I saw that this morning as well. Might be due to the much longer lead time from start of sales to opening. Will be interesting to see what happens after December. Oh, and the fixed week incentives seemed to help, as they sold quite a few.

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    When you stated the above, it appeared that you were talking about EPCOT as a park. Sorry for the confusion.

    Umm, EPCOT was NEVER meant to be a park. That all happened after his death. And yes, Walt tore out stuff to make up new, and left attractions unfinished as well. As an example, the Storybook Land Canal Boats had piles of dirt along the route for a few years before it was finished.

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    We're rope drop or early magic hour people. I get up at 4:30am for work every day, and it seems we can't sleep much past 5:30 or 6 on vacation, so we just get up and go early. But again, there were still 5 nights during our trip that we could have stayed to close at MK. We just choose to do...

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    OK, but nothing of what you mentioned is paying extra for something you got for free at any time. Yes, less hours open is less value to some, I'll agree to that, but losing park hours is someone's subjective opinion of value to that person. The reason for more parties is that more people want...

    What are you paying more for that used to be included in your regular park admission?

    For a new DVC resort, Disney does not declare all of the points as available for purchase right away. For Riviera, they have only declared about 20% of the available points, so only 20% of the rooms can be reserved with points. The other 80% can be reserved only with cash. As points are sold...

    New Rule: For orders placed after 10/1, guests must be present to meet mobility vendor deliverypersons

    I think the other issue is storage of cold or frozen items. It's very probable that they just don't have enough space to store it all, so how do you decide which guests frozen items will be melted?

    Is Riviera a DVC addition to Caribbean Beach?

    True, but not sure why people think that it's a sign of overall slow sales. Might only be an indication of slower fixed week sales, which is true. Not really sure why they even bothered to offer that option, as none of the resorts where they have offered fixed weeks has really sold very many...

    Yup, time will tell.

    Is Riviera a DVC addition to Caribbean Beach?

    Except that Old Pete stated that he didn't know how many points or deeds had been sold, since Disney doesn't release that information. But the county comptrollers office does, and it is easy to look it up, so I take what Old Pete says with a grain of salt. Yes, I think the latest direct prices...

    Actually, not having financed, I just don't know. That would be an interesting statistic, though. I will bet that you are right that a lot more are financing the much higher cost.

    So your opinion is that since Riviera is selling better than both CC and Poly at this point means that DVC is disappointed in the sales???? On what planet is that true?

    Is Riviera a DVC addition to Caribbean Beach?

    Ah, ok, as you replied to a post that talked about the price at Poly.

    Is Riviera a DVC addition to Caribbean Beach?

    I am most certainly NOT defending those prices. We think they are nuts as well, which is why we'll only be buying resale going forward. I'm sorry that it seemed like I was defending them. But people stating that Riviera sales are not up to expectations, when to this point, it is selling...
