The DVC side is one of the smallest on property I think.

Checking on Touring Plans, there are 576 regular rooms at the Beach Club and a total of 272 DVC studios, 1-beds & 2-beds in the Villas building.
Yeah I'm not sure where I got that from. It was very specific in my head, too. I thought "Yacht Club and Beach Club are sister resorts because Yacht Club has the standard rooms and Beach Club has the villas."

Obviously not.

Well that is true, just not the full picture.

VGF has fewer rooms, 147.

Reopening at resorts with associated DVCs costs Disney less and have higher margins.

It’s my understanding that, legally, Disney was required to reopen its timeshares after the state’s emergency order closing them was lifted. It’s why you saw the DVCs reopen first.

Interesting, I didn't think that was a legal requirement. I thought it was more of an "oh crap we have this points glut that is going to be a tremendous problem for at least three years and we need a pressure-release valve immediately."

Disney has made it abundantly clear that they want to cater to the type of guests who stay at deluxe resorts.

Yes, they had no choice but to reopen the DVC resorts.

I think they legally had no choice. Timeshare laws are very specific and there would have been a legal challenge if they hadn’t have done so.

They also put a 50% cap on borrowing DVC points from your next years allotment. It is still in place. They need for all the DVC members to use up their banked and current Use Year points with giving them the ability to borrow some to make a trip.
