I thought the new planners were already being mailed out, yet I've seen no posts from anyone that has received it yet. End of March is only 2 weeks away. Has anyone received it?

No, not here in Alabama either. We never seem to be at the top of the list though.

I won't be happy until I receive my new planner before December 31st of the previous year. I'm just a little weird that way. Its kind of like not wanting your veggies to each other on the plate.

dvc at last !

We have the large 2009 Vacation Planner and
the small 2010 Vacation Points Chart booklet.
I have been going on the site to look at the 2011 points chart.
The ( Spring ) Disney Files arrived about 2 weeks ago.

No planner here, and like Bobbi we just got our Disney Files (on Friday or Saturday). I know people were receiving them the week before as they posted here. It just made my trips to the mailbox that much more depressing. I'd go hoping, and yet nothing would be there. :sad2:

The funny thing is, I JUST joined and got my stuff with a 2009 planner, which I thought was very odd. No 2011 point charts and the thin booklet for 2010.

Last week I heard they did not have the non-Diseny charts yet (still finalizing deals). I guess that makes sense because only DVC resorts and Disney Collection are on the website. I'm just hoping that the books are at least printed and the other charts are inserts.

Now I can't find last years to compare! :rotfl: Wasn't last years hard cover, or was that just two years ago? Anyway, this year's planner is a soft cover, lots of pictures and it seems to me many more explanations of rules and how to use your membership. I may have just ignored those parts in previous years though.

We got ours today, here in CA. There are a lot of explanations of rules this issue, more than I ever remember seeing.
The new pictures of each resort are glamourous.

Beautiful, I like this cover much better than the generic graphic on the 2009 planner.

Switzerland didn't get the new planner yet (and probably will have to wait quite a while longer) I received the latest Disney Files about 2 weeks ago and my partner who is joint-owner on our contract (same adress) got his only 2 days ago... :-) Not that we would need 2, but I'm afraid that if I tell them to remove one of us from the delivery list they will mess up and we won't receive it anymore at all.

Long Beach, CA. It just came in the mail, I'm still reading through it. That picture of the VGC makes me even more excited! I'm less than a month from my first stay there during the time of year which is EXACTLY WHY I bought points at a place closer to me than most people's daily work commutes.

I know there isn't anything earth shattering in there, but I like to have it in my hands when I call MS, to note down all dates, confirmation #'s etc.

And yes, I though there were much more detailed explanations in there about wait lists, holding accounts, and all that stuff, but I compared it to last year's planner and it was all there. Somehow I think they made it a little more noticeable. There are almost 25 more pages in the new book. I think they added more pictures, so the print was spaced out better and easier to read.

They wouldn't even need to do that. Just have a download of a pdf file and let people print them, if they want them, then use a 3 hole punch and place them in the binders. It would sure be a lot cheaper than paying for the fancy printing and shipping.

Oh, yes-I absolutely love that scene-well, actually, I love so many things about the movie. One time I was at Hurricane Hannahs and I got a drink with an umbrella, so I lifted it up next to my face and smiled, just like Steve Martin did in the scene where there was a picture and he had a glass of wine with an umbrella. What was funny was that the bartender immediately knew what movie I was thinking of.

Actually Chuck, I did that a couple months ago when the 2011 point charts came out online. I find the glitzy picture books a total waste of money.

Just a FYI... the cost of producing and mailing these planners do not come out of our annual dues. So as long as there is a chance that you will "share" your planner, that is giving the marketing Disney is ultimately seeking.

Sorry to hear so many have not received their planners yet. I'm in Western Mass and I got mine early last week or even the week before. Hope you all get yours soon. Most of the info is available on the members' website (point charts, exchanges, etc...), but I so love looking through all the pictures and dreaming up my next trip "home" :goodvibes

You might want to check out this thread and post your inquiry there. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2419756

Still haven't received our planner here in Houston, Texas. Seems like they got as close to Texas as New Mexico and then skipped to the NE based the responses posted on the above thread.

I thought the new planners were already being mailed out, yet I've seen no posts from anyone that has received it yet. End of March is only 2 weeks away. Has anyone received it?

I was at Disney last week and I went to the open house at BLT, and they gave them to use then I geuss I will still receive one in the mail.:confused3

We just bought a new contract and received the FedEx box with all the materials yesterday. I was most excited to open it and peruse the new planner, since I thought "Surely this will have the new planner in it. They wouldn't dream of sending me anything else."

So you can imagine my surprise/disappointment/anger to find an 09 planner with a 2010 point chart booklet added in the back!

I mean come on! They actually spent money to overnight me the 09 planner?! Seriously?! If a brand new member can't even get a 2010 planner, who can? They didn't even give me 2011 point chart. At least throw in a printout or something!

Maybe the effects of all those layoffs last year are finally starting to seep through the surface. :confused3

Likely the 2010 planners are all still in transit to DVC. They go to a shipping contractor that labels and send them to current members, and the division of DVC that sends out materials to new purchasers has probably not received the 2010 booklets, yet.

I totally agree...In fact, they should be sending out the 2011 planners now, not a 2010 planner after a quarter of the year is behind us! I also agree that the entire book should be loaded onto the member's website. We could then download (and print if desired) the entire book or only the parts which interest us :surfweb: I don't know about you, but I don't need the pages which outline the floor plans for each resort. I've been a member since 1991 and I think I know the layouts pretty well by now...not the experts that you all are :worship:, but pretty informed :goodvibes The glitzy booklets could be saved for new members and those who purchased an add-on at a new resort. Just my 5 cents! ;) Have a Happy Easter weekend everyone! :dance3:

I think that's true for the majority of DVCers. Most have already planned their 2010 vacations and maybe their 2011, for which they probably looked at the DVC website. What frosts me is that our dues are paying for this "waste".

It's still a waste of money. Even the cruise lines have learned to make their planners as a downloadable PDF. However, I know many members still enjoy getting the planner and can't wait for it to arrive. Right now I'm one of those, although I'd be just as happy with a PDF that I download.

I like getting the Vacation Magic/DisneyFiles magazine and looking through it. Many think the magazine shiould be discountinued. But I enjoy holding it in my hand, kind of like the difference between a real book and an ebook.

But the bulky planner booklet, I'd rather download in a .pdf file. I wonder what percentage of owners use the trade options annually? As I haven't traded, and have no plans to do so in the near future, that may be one reason the planning booklet seems like a waste of paper to me. And, if in the future, I do want to do a trade with RCI or even an internal Disney trade, I think I'd find the online resource more convenient to use rather than the booklet.

But, everyone has their individual preferences, it would be nice for DVC to give us a choice. Even if not funded by dues, some division pays for it, and they'd benefit from the savings of the prep and mailing costs.

Knowing its going out anyway, I want it, but I think if they can't .pdf it, they should cut it or get it in the mail by year end for the following year. Just my 2 cents:)

I think this is really not very nice of them [I'll edit another word], especially considering the number of people here who haven't yet gotten it. And I'll bet there are also a large number of DVC members who also haven't gotten it, but since they don't read these boards or maybe even the member's website, they don't know to be expecting anything.

IMO the idea of sending NEW planners again is a big WASTE of money.
There could be a master 3 ring binder.
That way pages could be subtracted and new pages added.
Very simple process. Just number the pages.
If we can keep track of our points, use year, bank, borrow, ADR's etc.
we can replace pages in a binder.

I received a planner yesterday in Eastern CT. :woohoo: Boy - was I excited. Ripped open the box before I did anything else - only to find it was the 2009 planner. :headache: I think we received that because we just closed on a BCV resale. It actually had a piece of paper in it talking about the BCV expiration date. Took me a few minutes to realize that it wasn't the 2010 planner I've been waiting for. I didn't look at the book at first, I looked at a card that was enclosed that talked about the 3 resorts that were "coming in 2009". I was like "what the heck?!?!?". :confused: Then I looked at the book and saw 2009. When I opened the book, I figured out why I received it.

Funny thing - the 2009 planner was mailed on 4/5. I received that before the 2010 planners which supposedly were mailed in March. :confused3 Oh well, back to waiting...:rolleyes1
