DVC discount............

I have always used my DVC Member card at the World of Disney. We just returned from WDW and were told that we could not use our DVC for discount at the W of D. I was there as recently as Dec. and never had a problem, but they told me yesterday that they have never accepted it for discount. I have been using it since 1995. Does anyone have any further info on this? We know that we can't use it in the parks and that is why we always wait until our last day to go to the W of D.

I've never been able to use my DVC card to get a discount at the WofD in Downtown Disney. I have, however, rec'd an AP, amx and DC (then MKC) discount. You'd think they'd just make it easier for everyone and throw DVC in there too.

WoD has never accepted the DVC card, so if you received the discount in the past you were fortunate indeed. DVC has a discount benefit at The Disney Store, but WoD is not part of the Disney Store program. Right now there is a DVC disocunt at Ghirardellis (I think) at DD and there are some dining discounts at some of the restaurants and at PI. Enjoy!

Doc,
Do you mean the Disney Store at the mall, because ours has never heard of DVC and of course offers no discount.

Cheers

Yes - the Disney Stores in the malls honor the DVC 10% discount - it works like the old MKC/new DC. I am a CM at local Phila. store and we always honor DVC. Try again and insist on your 10%!!

DVC members are entitled to a 10% discount at all Disney Stores. I would go back to yours, Pixie_Dust, and tell them to check their SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures). Speak to the manager if necessary. On our registers (I'm a part time TDS CM) there is a specific button to push for the DVC discount. Best of luck! Email me if you have any other questions.

Yes, you should insist on the DVC discount at your mall Disney Store. If you have any further problem, please let me know, as I have a DVC contact who has offered to help with situations like this. I suspect if they will check, you will get the discount- be FIRM!!

FYI - If you spend over $50 at W of D, you can use American Express and get 15% discount. It adds up!

OHHHH, YES YOU CAN.

World of Disney DOES accept a discount from DVC on purchases over $15.00. I have it in writing in a phamphlet and also it states it in the membership magazine (whatever it is called). If you keep those lovely magazines they send quarterly check it out. I will now make a copy of the page and show them if they question us.

DVC discount at Disney Stores

Wow! Great information. I didn't know that the Disney Stores would give us a DVC discount. If I buy Hopper passes or other admission media at the Disney Store is there still a DVC discount? (Probably not, but maybe someone out there can tell me one way or another.)

I have yet to join the Disney Club, since I really don't know what it is, or if it's worth the $29.95. Since we live in Calif., does any one know if the DC offers discounts for Disneyland or Disney Calif. Adventure?

Thanks for all the great info on this board! We're off to Disney Grand Californian Hotel in April with our DVC points. Can't wai

No, you do not get a discount with the DVC card when buying hoppers at the Disney Store. You can only get a discount when purchasing them onsite.

Yes, there are discounts for the DC in DL and DCA, mainly on packages that include a resort stay. I didn't pay much attention since the liklihood of me getting out to DL anytime in the near future is slim! :D Except for the Convention of course...but no discounts apply to that unfortunately.

disneyokw- can you please check which issue and page of Vacation Magic you found the WoD/DVC discount. I have looked through the past 4 issues abd can't find any mention of this discount. It is also not found on the Members Only site.
I know American Express offers a 15% discount- and a brochure is given at checkin showing this, but have never seen any mention of DVC discounts at WoD.

amex discount for DVC at WoD?

We had some friends of ours stay in the second bedroom of a two bedroom for a week in January and one night they went to downtown disney to do some shopping without us. I told them about the 15% amex discount (they have amex cards and resort ID's which is all I thought was necessary). Anyway, the CM there said that DVCers were NOT entitled to the amex discount because in order to qualify for it you had to pay for at least 2 room nights with your amex card and since DVCers stay on points, their stays don't qualify for the 15% discount. The CM gave it to her anyway, but I recall having a CM tell us the same thing once before. I told him that we put our down payment on our amex card and he laughed and gave us the discount. Does anyone know if this is really a rule? (and i think this question still belongs on this board because it only pertains to DVC stays... to my knowledge, there is NO way to tell by looking at a resort ID what credit card someone used to pay with).

You're right, Lisa

About the Am Ex discount. I've never stayed on points - always used my Am Ex to pay for vacations. No one has ever asked when I've made a purchase how i paid for my hotel. I've always just handed my resort key with my Am Ex.

Sorry for the confusion.
