Many feel that BLT dues were "mistakenly" set low and since it has sold out, it is being adjusted. The last 2 years we have seen 6% plus increases.

I wonder how bus sharing factors in as well, given that BW shares with Swan/Dolphin while BC shares with YC...

Not something most of the other DVC resorts do.

We don't know (but suspect its to compensate for standard view rooms that have a lower point value -but just as many guests using transportation)
Agreed - LOTS of wiggle room. These really are all just estimates, and disney has four separate pools of people on which to make estimates and share allocations- people staying at non-dvc portion of resort (either cash reservations or non-dvc portion of resorts), people staying at other disney resorts, park guests not staying at disney, and visitors to resorts not necessarily staying at any resort or visiting parks, but still spending money. With this much wiggle room, it really is a business decision, b/c there is such a wide range that would be defensible legally.
