What Will DVC’s Next Move Be?

Disney Vacation Club is starting off to glance really distinctive than when we initial acquired in four many years ago. Selling prices have continued to boost on bought-out resorts as witnessed by the current enhance for Saratoga Springs, Old Crucial West, and Animal Kingdom. Manufacturer new resorts like Rivera have been produced or are less than construction like the Disneyland Tower. Some DVC vacation resort strategies have slowly ceased to exist like the disappearance of Reflections from all DVC literature.

To me, the new initiative to build much more DVC at present resorts is appealing. This isn’t a new thought for DVC. We have noticed it when they included the treehouses to Saratoga Springs as component of the current condo association. We have also viewed it with the get started of a new condo affiliation as they did with Copper Creek even though Boulder Ridge was previously at Wilderness Lodge. Now, we have villas being extra to the present apartment affiliation at Grand Floridan. We also have the freshly announced DVC tower coming to the Polynesian. I do not assume the Polynesian tower will be aspect of the existing rental affiliation, but that’s a different speculative article for a different time.

What I want to speculate now is the place will DVC go upcoming. We have viewed the reputation of including far more DVC villas to current resorts. Grand Floridian gave immediate revenue guides some of their most effective profits data ever and the new Polynesian tower is sure to be a hit. My dear husband has already explained to me if we pay off our new Grand Californian order by the time the new Polynesian goes on sale, we can seize a little deal. I nearly fell out of my chair when he explained to me this and I can assure you will be using all those words to the financial institution.

But now I’m inquiring myself if I require to consider selling just one of my kidneys or it’s possible just one of our two Animal Kingdom contracts. Because if DVC retains this up, there could be other fascinating prospective buyers to invoke a bad circumstance of addonitis. Here are some of the possibilities. These are simply just speculation (or perhaps goals), some stemming from rumors. But you have to acknowledge, it could materialize.

Yacht Club Villas

This plan has been thrown about for a even though now. The naysayers declare its status as a convention vacation resort limits its potential to incorporate DVC. I agree with that to an extent. But after owning conversations with my pricey mate and Goals Unlimited Travel Agent extraordinaire, Elaine Edwards, I’m still left with some hope. As a travel agent, she sees which resorts are well known and reserve up quickly and which types never. Yacht Club suffers the exact problems that the Grand Floridian lodge facet did. It just doesn’t ebook as very well as other resorts. This is why Grand Florida took in a ton of people today who received updates from overbooked resorts final 12 months and why it was this sort of an quick determination for DVC to purchase 1 of the lodge buildings for more villas. On the resort aspect, Yacht Club will get overshadowed by Seaside Club.

There are Disney Vacation Club users who are all set to be initial in line if Yacht Club Villas at any time goes up for sale and I’m fearful I’m one of those people men and women. I get it, Yacht Club is kind of little, but if DVC can take a wing of Wilderness Lodge and switch it into villas, I feel like they can acquire a portion of Yacht Club. I believe I see a awesome spot around by the lake I would like.

Bay Lake Tower Component 2

This has been a extended-standing rumor as very well, but it can make sense. Bay Lake Tower is a incredibly well-liked DVC Vacation resort. You have obtain to the monorail, a going for walks route to Magic Kingdom, and wonderful concept park and lake views. 1 glance at a map of the Contemporary Vacation resort exhibits that there is not a great deal room for an additional Bay Lake Tower. Nonetheless, we do have the Yard Wing of the resort side. I believe this would make a pretty very good site, and right here is why:

To start with, the Backyard garden Wing does not genuinely healthy in nicely with the rest of the vacation resort. It’s limited in contrast to the A-Body and Bay Lake Tower and spread out. If they taken off it and instead created yet another DVC tower, they could almost certainly make up for the missing lodge rooms with villas money inventory. They would acquire a lot extra rooms as a result of a greater 15-story tower. A new tower would give fantastic sights of Bay Lake and 7 Seas Lagoon and it’s possible a tiny bit of concept park views, but it appears to be like the A-Body could block some of people sights.

This seemed far more accurate when these rooms didn’t get refurbished with the rest of the resort. But, they have been, in point, lately refurbished. So my dream of Bay Lake Element 2 is a minimal fewer possible than I at first believed until they locate some better space.

BoardWalk Growth

I saw an individual question about DVC including a lot more on to BoardWalk. This is a person I really don’t feel as strongly about. BoardWalk is a single of my favorites, but it by now has a actually nice-sized villas area. I don’t see DVC taking around the hotel facet whenever shortly, particularly with the newly announced lodge refurbishment. Whilst Disney is not opposed to the concept of “fill in any and all obtainable space”, there isn’t a total whole lot left listed here. I can see some place to the side of the previous ESPN club throughout from Seabreeze Issue. I just cannot see them having that house particularly considering the fact that it is no longer on the precise boardwalk itself. This is one I’m not sure of.

Coronado Springs

This is a person of my favored tips and it will get a large amount of flack. As numerous associates disagree with the strategy of introducing DVC to a moderate vacation resort. However, Riviera, though is its have vacation resort, does sit on land previously occupied by Caribbean Seashore Vacation resort so that they can share some features like the Skyliner (I know they each individual have a station, but equally are walkable from both equally resorts). They even eradicated some of the properties at Caribbean Seashore Resort to make room for Riviera.

If there is one particular matter Coronado Springs has likely for it, it is land. All close to it is open up area. Additionally, it’s an incredible resort. Gran Destino feels quite deluxe in the theming, lobby, and lodging. They even have club level. There are excellent dining establishments as effectively. I know it is a conference resort, but the Cabanas part mostly doesn’t get entire. Casitas, Ranchos, and Grand Destino keep a significant quantity of rooms. In my fantasy, I consider a DVC tower someplace close to Grand Destino, probably where by some of Cabanas sits or in some of the open space back again by the key pool and the addition of a Skyliner. I did say the term fantasy, but you hardly ever know. This is one particular of our preferred resorts even though it’s a average, an “honorary residence resort” as we simply call it. I would love to make it a serious household vacation resort.

Port Orleans

Talking of open up areas, I see obtainable land at Port Orleans for the DVC New Orleans-themed villas. Okay, I’m definitely dreaming listed here. I am not 1 to get hung up on DVC needing to be situated at deluxe resorts. If the vacation resort is beautiful and has fantastic facilities, it can be deserving of DVC in my eyes. There is a decent quantity of space earlier mentioned the French Quarter. Also, it is appropriate following to Saratoga Springs which implies it could be walkable to Disney Springs. It’s a very long wander, but I am not one particular to shy absent from trekking from the Aged Vital West to Disney Springs. This is a very well-cherished resort and I do think there are some associates who would be intrigued in acquiring listed here.

What Does the Future Maintain?

My views were simply speculative. But I definitely see the value of DVC introducing on or incorporating new at present resorts. There is already a large amount of infrastructure in put at these resorts. In some instances, they only require to transform lodge rooms. For other folks, they need to have to develop new structures, but most transportation and dining are currently in place. I’m fired up to see what the upcoming retains for Disney Holiday Club and what resorts may well be following for a revamp.

The place do you think the following DVC resorts will go? Which of the thoughts I introduced would charm to you or not appeal to you? As always, remain tuned to DVC Fan for the newest information and discussion on all items Disney Vacation Club.
