I think this is relevant to the parks and future resort development, particularly because I have heard that NY and NJ send the largest share of guests to WDW. It seems like an odd move given the current and rumored future expansion of DVC properties. Could it be that Disney thinks these markets are tapped out? Could sales in general be stalling? With the poor occupancy numbers resort wide, might Disney halt all future stand alone DVC plans in favor of easier to market add-ons?
Disney to close sales center
Disney's time-share arm has decided to close both of its remote sales centers in the U.S.
Disney Vacation Club, which is based in Celebration, says it will close its "Doorways to Dreams" sales center on New York's Long Island on Nov. 3.
The move comes a few weeks after Disney announced plans to shutter its other sales center, in suburban Chicago. That location, the first Disney Vacation Club sales center to open away from Walt Disney World, will shut down Sept. 14.
Disney Vacation Club also operates a sales center at Tokyo Disney in Japan, which is a key market for Aulani, Disney's hotel and time share in Hawaii.
