I hear things from time to time that just make me stop and scratch my head. Rumors so far-fetched and unbelievable that they cannot seem remotely true. Yet time and time again, they turn out to be accurate, and I am left speechless.
So ladies and gentlemen: Goodbye backpacks and hello PopSockets!
Disney Vacation Club is no longer giving out their famous backpacks with new direct member purchases. This swag has long been a right of passage for new members to display with pride in the parks, but now it has been moved to the curb to make way for a stick-on cell phone holder. Part of me likes to hope that the PopSocket says, “This cost me $30,000.”
Don’t fear, though – Our friends over at DVC Resale Market have been making up for Disney Vacation Club’s lack of proper swag for some time now and will still provide a backpack for each new resale purchase! You might also get lucky enough to snag an “Add-on-itis” or “It’s Got a Friggin Savannah” t-shirt.
Let us know what you think about DVC discontinuing this fan-favorite perk as part of direct Disney Vacation Club purchases! We also haven’t seen this PopSocket in the wild yet, so if you happen to see one shoot us a picture.
