Amy and I are new Orlando, Florida residents where we live with our dogs Odie the greyhound and Hermès the Spanish galgo. We are DVC owners at Animal Kingdom Lodge, BoardWalk Villas, and Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian, Disney World Annual Passholders, and love educating Disney Vacation Club on how to both use and maximize the value of their DVC points!

  • I was just recently on a DVC tour and they are PUSHING Riviera. A lot. And incentives to buy. Plus a cash incentive if you use your Disney visa card. She wouldn’t even talk about the other resorts. You’re right, it’s saying something if they are discounting a brand new resort. But I personally think that will be the way of the future with new DVC resorts. I’ll bet that Reflections will have the same resale restrictions.

  • visited Rivera Resort early March. Lovely place, however, it is so subdued with “Disney” it did not appeal to me. I could
    hear my grandkids saying “I thought we were going to a Disney Resort?” Not for me. Looking for fun, not sophistication.

  • The idea that Riviera sales are soft is a complete misinterpretation of the data. Looking at the the last three resorts over the first 8 months of sales for each resort the data says this:

    Poly sold 539,108 points in eight months

    Copper Creek sold 445,376 points in eight months

    Riviera sold 787,623 points in eight months

    Sales of Riviera were 46% better than Poly and 56% better than copper creek over the first eight months.

    The resale restrictions are not hurting. Sales are robust and outperforming the last two offerings.

  • I watched this when it came out on March 9 and I agree with Pete Scheidle’s analysis. In the last six days (it’s March 15 as I write), a lot has changed and I am thinking this becomes much more negative for those Riviera purchasers that now need to sell due to loss of jobs, etc. An unfortunate situation for everyone, but I am wondering if this will eventually force Disney into relaxing the restrictions.
