Well, wish I had renewed my card sooner. It expires at end of October. Never mind we are going in a couple of weeks and looks like my card will still be valid, no further plans on the near horizon for another dlp trip after that and not buying another 80 shares!

OK, there are a few ways of interpreting it and neither are particularly clear (I think they need to start their restructuring by sacking their corporate comms manager!)....

1) if you were a shareholder before 2000, you can continue as you are and will not need to have 100 shares when you come to renew - clear enough.

2) If you are a post 2000 shareholder you can keep your current 20 shares and shareholders card/club membership UNTIL you come to renew, when you renew you will only be allowed to do so by buying 80 more shares.

3) Post 2000 shareholder - you can keep your current club membership until 1st October 2012. After this date, you will need to renew your membership under the new scheme - which will mean you need 100 shares. If you do not, your membership will cease.

I don't understand the bit at the end about regardless of the number of shares held, you are still eligible for club perks? I can only assume this means until 1st October or in the second scenario until you have to renew. After this date perhaps you have to join the new Club and therefore the new terms?

Either way, it can be interpreted in at least 2 different ways so it's as clear as mud.

Also, it talks about fraudulently using card if you are no longer a member. Erm, how are they going to police this? Unless they issue brand new (different looking) cards under the new conditions, how can a CM in a shop tell?

Another example of DLRP being clear on what they are doing....

I'm not a shareholder but isn't your card like partners cards where they swipe them ? If so it's going to come up on the till that you aren't a member I'm guessing.

After tea I'll go and find the French discussion and see if it's clearer in French

I have merged two of the threads posted about this subject into one so we can keep the discussion about our future as shareholders in one place.

I'm waiting for my first card for our October holiday! Really hope I still get to use it otherwise complete waste of money. I'm now glad I only bought 5 shares, rather than 20!!

I can't remember if I've had mine swiped at all - I don't think so.

It honestly isn't very clear. I am wondering (the worst) and thinking we will all need to renew to the new club after 1st October, meaning if we don't have the 100 shares then we are out. It does seem an unfair way to do it - it would be better to let people remain until their renewal date on their cards. Let's hope it is the latter....

Interesting.

My membership has lapse and I need to renew. As I've only something like 22 shares held with Halifax Share Dealing it would seem I need to do something fast this evening/tomorrow in order to beat the October 1st date - which is next Monday.

When renewing what do people normally sent to prove ownership of the shares please?. In the past I've got a cover letter from the Halifax, but don't have time for this, this time.

Thanks

Iain

This is such a shame. Very few true DLP fans could afford that, it's almost the price of a trip. So just for the wealthy! I think all shareholders should email and stress that this is unfair for those fans who can't afford those extra shares,but were loyal enough to have them before this announcement.

They don't care though do they..it just makes it easier to buy them all out as some many people would renew and sell the few shares that they own

Of course! My brain wasn't working for a moment. I totally forgot about the whole wanting to buy out DLP thing! Ah well!

We should all refuse to sell then!

Omg thats such bad news! We only just bought ours and recieved our card last week at home whilst we were there so never actually got to use our card, just our temporary certificate! I hope we can remain shareholders even if its just the two years the card is valid as we are planning another trip in Feb! My OH just said "That's ok we can buy another 20 shares every 6 months or so" but I am sure that will not be worth it! We scrimp just to afford our trip!!

It did indeed cross my mind too that they may be trying to buy back shares and take control of the company.

Rosebug, I agree it's now a "rich person's club" not a club for true Disney fans who have been visiting for years and years. Let's face it, how many people are going to buy shares to get a member's card unless they are big fans and visit regularly.

I am also not too happy that they gave such a short amount of notice. It screams of them not wanting people with 20 shares to dash to renew before the date of the change (assuming we can still use our currently valid cards after the 1st of Oct)
