Yes that is exactly what happens to them, and there is a website that buys and resells them also and on Ebay.

Execs did state that Disney would be paying for the initial install with dues charged for upkeep.

Reasonable assumptions are more housekeeping time in each room, more laundry costs, more frequent replacement due to wear (these bedspreads feel like they could survive a nuclear winter), etc.

As for the total increase in housekeeping at most resorts, higher wages and benefits also apply.

I would LOVE to find a way to get my hands on one of the OKW or VB comforters if they do change them. My bedroom is decorated very "beachy" in honor of our two favorite resorts and the 2 comforters I've found that fit in with the decor have been poly/cotton and hardly last a year...I think the quality of the DVC ones is MUCH better and I would love the chance to pick one up. (Haven't seen anything of interest on Mousesurplus in YEARS anyway though.)

I doubt it. The original comforters at OKW were on the beds for 18 years, and badly needed replacement. These will only be 3 to 4 years old. They were like new in November during my last trip. To bad they couldn't reuse the fabric to make drapes to replace those horrible Roman shades.

The Roman Shades aren't bad, just the mechanism that makes them work. If they weren't childproof, they would be pretty nice and easy to operate.

I can't believe they would last 18 years with supposidly monthly washings.

The design lasted that long, I am sure each bedspread didn't. They did dry clean them which does prolong the life over washings.

Bad enough in the one bedroom, but in the studios they are a real pain!

Well since they are changing to the three sheet method instead of a duvet cover, it's not going to tied down.

That will be better, but still a pain when you are making the bed. Especially with those foam blankets that they use. Unless they are getting new blankets, too.

I'm looking forward to the change, but wonder what took so long. With the recent refurbishments, it seems that the timing is off. Even if Disney is paying for the initial bedding, our dues did pay for the recent changes. If I'm not mistaken the bedding at SSR is currently being upgraded to new comforters that will be replaced in 2013 - 2014. I hope they have stopped that but my fear is that the new comforters have already been procured and will be installed while plans are in place to replace them.

That's 1647 almost new comforters to replace at OKW, even at $30 per, that is about $50K.

I don't like the current comforters any better than the next person, and they are more "beachy" than old style Key West. But at least wait until they have some wear and tear.
As much as I hate those new OKW comforters, I have to agree with Chuck. It's a HUGE expense to replace them in that many rooms!

The three sheets are on the bed, bottom sheet, top sheet, blanket, sheet, then the duvet with the comforter inside the duvet.

I think what Deb means by tie down is that the comforter inside the duvet needs to be tied to the duvet so that it does not slip to the bottom of the duvet cover.

We never use the bedspreads or duvets, its too much cover for us. It is never that cold in our room.

I do like triple sheeting, we had it at Kidani on our last stay.
