    Yet another webcast which DVC Members outside of the USA and Canada cannot access.

    DISNEY VACATION CLUB is currently promoting a BEHIND THE GRAND DESIGN webcast event being screened during August on the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th.

    The webcast will be hosted by Samantha Brown and will be showing a behind-the-scenes look at The Villas Disneys Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

    Americans and Canadians whether Members or not can register via http://www.disneyvacationclubwebevent.com/ and all viewers will receive a limited edition Disney character lithograph.

    If you click on the REGISTER NOW link there is a very short pre-webcast video to watch.

    It's a shame the webcast is not open for world-wide viewing with maybe only those in the USA and Canada receiving the lithograph.

    Also am I correct in thinking that we seem to always miss out, can anyone remember if there's every been a time when Members received a special offer but was limited to those living outside of the USA and Canada?

    It's probably because, for all it's slick packaging, this is basically just a sales pitch for timeshare, and therefore legally only applies in the US and Canada.

    Would be nice to see though :confused3

    Are you sure it is only for the USA I signed up for it with no problems. I also signed up for the one on AKV last year.

    USA and Canada.
    Did you use your UK address and did you receive the limited-edition Disney lithograph for the last webcast?

    But I suppose you could sign up by inputting one of the DVC resorts addresses as your own address or use a friends?

    having a problem accessing the web page for the new spa at SSR also. Disney really should consider its international audience.

    I dont understand why disney excludes us Brits of any special happenings etc. we pay like anyone else does and if you are a dvc member we should be treated the same as a US or Canadian member. Doesn't seem fair to me

    Because it's essentially a timeshare pitch and thus there are different laws in different countries protecting consumers and it's a legal minefield for them.

    Obviously it's not because they have anything personal against other nationalities, that would be silly :)
