Exclamation Disney Vacation Club adjusts 2010 Vacation Points charts

Found this posted on the member website:

Disney Vacation Club adjusts 2010 Vacation Points charts

To help address a growing Member interest in weekend stays at Disney Vacation Club Resorts, Disney Vacation Club has adjusted 2010 Vacation Points charts, reducing Vacation Point requirements for Friday and Saturday nights.

In addition to better reflecting the changes in Members' vacationing patterns, the adjusted charts make accommodations more affordable during many popular Walt Disney World® events, such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and ESPN The Weekend.

To make this change possible, Vacation Point requirements for some instances of Sunday-Thursday stays are now higher. However, a full week's stay will essentially cost the same amount of Vacation Points as before.

To view the adjusted Vacation Points charts, click on the "View Vacation Points Charts" link in the "Plan My Vacation" section of this Web site (located on the right side of the page).

not sure if this is good or bad...

Well the trip I just booked for Dec2009 would be 28 points less...
But, the trip I was planning for Dec 2010 will be 2 points more...
It will be 215 points for a 2BR AKV Standard instead of 213
and I will only have 214 points... 1 point short ! Thanks DVC !

Thanks for posting...

I am surprised that the changes are as extensive as they are. The adjustments are also larger than I would have expected. This doesn't affect us because we generally have stayed for 7 days. But I can see that it might encourage some folks who have stayed non-DVC or cash on weekends to just use points for the sake of simplicity.

Just one more reason to sell. The new management team needs to be replace.

Good bye folks.

It's better for us. Currently we stay mostly Thurday to Sunday. For our September stay at AKV in a 1BR Savanna View, the number of points needed dropped from 113 to 102.

They have to adjust these points if they are lowering the weekend points. It all has to equal out in the end for the total chart. So, if they take some away they have to pop back in somewhere.

ETA..you changed your post while I was posting..

Personally, I like the change. But, we like to go starting on a Friday for a week but then also the next fri and sat to get extra days in. It'll save me about 20 points, which is nice. Might can fit in another day with that. But, we don't do the cash for weekends thing or just Sun-Thursday as we are not able to go down more than once a year. For us, it'll make it a little cheaper on points.

Don't really see a big change at AKV.

Was going to stay for 6 nights in a 2 bedroom in '10. Originally was going to cost 240 points, now going to be 238, not a big difference that i see.

What am I missing that has *some* people nervous and upset?

How much longer until we see this message:

In order to make vacation reservations easier for our members, DVC will be changing to 7 day vacations only. Booking will begin on Saturday and extend to the following Saturday. On the four day of your stay, you will have your towels refreshed, trash emptied and toiletries renewed. We feel this will make planning and scheduling your vacations much easier. These changes will allow housekeeping to schedule all full cleaning on Saturdays once guests have checked out and prior to newly scheduled arrivals. In addition to making this easier for our members, we expect to have some cost savings from the changes in housekeeping.

To assist with scheduling your vacations, MS will be open longer hours on Thursday and Fridays. However, they will be closed Monday through Wednesday.

I'm not sure how this will play out for us. Right now we're Sat.-Fri. kind of people, but as my oldest DS gets into Middle School I'm looking at trying to finagle long weekends (generally Thurs.-Mon.), so it might help out there a bit .

It will be interesting to see how it plays out and what people's reactions are. Between that and the new booking policy it seems like a lot of changes in the last year...

Thanks for posting this as I'm just starting tonight to plan our 2010 vacation!

I cannot say I am surprised, especially since BLT had a different weekday/weekend ratio. As a weekday only person it will cost me more points for the same stay, guess I will have to go to the member site and see how bad it is.
