I was just reading about how the free valet parking perk has gone away at DVC resorts. WE used this perk quite a bit especially at Y&B and Boardwalk to go to restaurants there and walk over to International Gateway to spend the evening in the countries and fireworks. Pool Hopping is so restrictive now it does not make sense anymore to consider it. It seems like when something becomes popular with the DVC members it gets cut by DVC. While not a big thing to me I remember many people got upset when OKW stopped having peach color towels in the unit and replaced them with the white standard hotel towels. What other DVC perks throughout the years have disappeared that you wish would return ?? I read the Disney Rumor and News thread and there is discussion on the boards that a rumor is going around that FLA resident passes will have payment plans similar to a plan at Disneyland. Apparently, you put $ 99 down and pay each month by a charge to credit card or checking account. This way a family does not have to come up with $ 1,000-$ 1,200 for a family to go to WDW. I guess Sea World and Bush Gardens have flexible terms. It would be nice to see DVC come up with a plan for their member that is similar. Heck, I would love to pay the FLA resident rate........ Just some random thoughts.........Would love to hear yours about what other perks have disappeared.
