What I have come to realize through writing it all out is this: dvc is selling a product. As a dvc member I expect it to be a value. It is not. Their vacation advisors are not trained in these areas. Case in point: when I called to book the makeup fw cruise the advisor asked if I wanted to go out of contemporary? Poly? GF or saratoga? What??? I asked where the cruise from saratoga springs leaves from or goes. What fireworks do we see? Her answer was “i dont know”.I cannot believe Disney did not make it right, that is a shock, i am sorry you guys had to experience that
Thank you so much. I guess “buyer beware” is true even in the bubbleHave just read your TR in one go - hope you continue to do them on future trips because you have a great storytelling style. I would have been very peeved about the fireworks cruise as well; I’m looking forward to hearing how the next one compares.
My oldest, X, can clearly be seen yelling at me to stop taking pictures. And he is usually the “fun” onetry to do on ride photos, but my own kid (the coaster freak) won’t let me. Says it’s not allowed, or that I am going to drop my phone, blah, blah, blah ... Geez. Some kids are no fun!
I go back and forth. To be honest, priced in the $45-$55 range it would be a good time. Thanks for reading!Finally all caught up!
Don’t know what’s worse the original bait and switch DVC pulled on that firework cruise or how they failed to handle it afterwards.
Wow!!! 11 does not seem like a big group when you put it that way!!!I'm only on your second day and can already say -- you are so brave! Travelling with a big group and being the only expert. I would probably pull my hair out.
We went two years ago with 25 cousins/aunts/uncles/in-laws and thankfully it went very well. I think it was only because about half of us are WDW obsessed and know how everything works. We're going back again in 17 days with about 30 people and I'm just thankful for my cousins who are obsessive planners and MDE freaks like me. When we get there, we have a few ADRs/FPs together, but if certain parts don't work out, that's just fine.
