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!

  • Years ago when I first bought into Disney back in 1995, they used Interval International instead of RCI. The quality of those accomodations was excellent. I noticed a major difference once Disney went over to RCI. As you’ve remarked, RCI’s quality resort quality isn’t always that good. I just don’t understand why Disney continues with them. I wonder who was responsible for choosing RCI over Interval International.

  • Been a dvc member since 2005. Love your show, I know you guys have a life, but would love to see you on longer.As a member from NJ I try to use my points twice a year. Since 1989 this will be 62 times coming up,stayed at almost every hotel and dvc property. You are so right about using points for a hotel room, makes no sense especially for what you get in a dvc studio compared to a hotel room. I would never use it on an RCI property, if they change to Hyatt club definitely. Anyway love you guys great show big follower , learn a lot.

  • Gee, we started out staying 5 weeknights in standard studios at the Boardwalk in Adventure Season 2X a year to maximize our points and would actually have points left over to accumulate into a 3rd trip or an occasional weekend night. My work schedule has taken me out of adventure season and we sometimes splurge for weekend nights to stay 6 or 7 nights total and to get the Boardwalk view. We are still getting good mileage from our 100 point contract. We occasionally supplement by buying 5 or 6 points from Disney or spending a weekend night at Riverside (which we love). We’ve stayed at Hilton Head a couple of times in November for 6 points a night. We get to walk on the beach alone, enjoy resort activities, see old Savannah decorated for Christmas and eat amazing seafood.
    I cannot imagine spending 360 points for a cruise!
