Right. I think the pushback is like you were saying the other day that it's so high. It’s great that it's paid upon stay though. That way if not using the points and renting out then it's the renter's cost. Baking into MFs would reduce what an owner profits by renting as rental prices are not sensitive to MFs (e.g. someone renting Vero points isn't paid more despite higher MFs).The transient tax is an Anaheim thing. And the way it’s now calculated is also an Anaheim thing, which is why it’s so much higher than the tax for VGC.
However the decision to make it payable at the point of check-in is surely a DVC thing. It would make the dues much higher than VGC so they’ve decided to make it payable at check-in - which is the case at Aulani too. My guess is that’s the main reason.
