It sounds like getting the new system to work with the DVC system has been a real pain!

My understanding is they're not testing at any DVC resort with reservations booked on points.

Some threads on dvc forums suggested that at least some bcv and one of the akl dvc was also part of test, even on points, and some even were offered the mb and fp+ even if just renting points for those.
