Egypt 736 to 836
Ecuador/Galapagos jumped 10 points but the 2012 itinerary is also a day less than 2011-734 to 744
Peru 421 to 447
South Africa 840 to 961
Viva Italia 614 to 661

These are all adult points. The child's a little less, still...
Considering points rent relatively quickly & easily at $10, you're looking at $6-9k for ONE adult on these trips.

I've always thought one of these trips would be neat, but I just looked at the Greece trip. For my family of four it's around $20k before airfare. I know Greece is expensive, but if we can't do better than that I'm afraid Greece will be on my no-go list for a while.

Off Site - 06/87, Off Site - 06/93, ASM - 11/01, Dolphin - 11/03, CBR - 01/06, POR - 09/07 FIRST TRIP WITH DS-10 mo!, Off-Site - 06/08 (DH's conference, so DS and I hit the parks!), BCV - 03/09 DS#2 was sick, so DH & DS#1 went alone! , DL Fairfield - 10/09 First Trip to DL & DS#2's first trip to a Disney Park!, 06/10 - BWV (Our first trip as OWNERS!), 06/11 - AKV-Kidani, 03/12-BWV, 06/12 - Not sure where yet!

I'm especially surprised since there is a new Disney executive in charge of ABD, DCL and DVC--I thought part of his job was to better integrate these 'non-park' entities.

At these points and these prices, adults can find as good or much better product with other companies (Tauck, A&K, Rick Steves, etc.), especially since ABD has cut back on adults-only trips.
Yes also surprised by the DVC point increase, what helps me make sense of the integration of DVC with DCL and ABD, is they are separate division in the Disney Corporation and competing for their separate piece of the guest dollar. I do hope Mr. Holtz can this availability more DVC member friendly.

I also hope their will be more adult only offerings.

If we couldn't laugh we would all just go insane. The only difference between an adventure and an ordeal is attitude. Don’t dream your life, Live your dream! Paradise is not a place but a state of Mind
