So, I purchased DVC based on a friend's recommendation. I had not been to Disney since the early 80's. Clearly my memories of Disney could not have prepared me for what I was about to experience. I bought DVC because I knew I wanted to take the kids several times, and it seemed like a pretty fair price to pay, to stay at some outstanding resorts. I don't know what exactly I was expecting to see upon arrival, but I was thrilled with the accommodations. We had a 1BR at OKW for 8 nights, and it was absolutely beautiful. I loved the way the whole resort was set up. I loved not walking through a large lobby to get in an elevator, and ride up 6 floors, and then into a hallway where everything looks the same. OKW was just a beautiful, spread out, private resort. We had so much room, for the four of us. Having in room laundry was something that made a huge difference during our stay. The room was super clean when we checked in. Everything worked, and thankfully the AC was keeping it cool because it was HOT and muggy there last week. I guess, I just wanted to share a positive experience. I was able to tour a few of the other DVC resorts because my friend stayed at AK and BCV during our trip. Although they were very nice, I'm pretty sure I'm hooked on OKW. Every CM that I encountered in OKW was excellent. I had a slight issue with my dining plan, and they worked quickly to figure it out, even calling the restaurant that messed up the TS charge, and had it corrected. I wish I could say the same for CMs throughout the parks. There was a ton of good to this trip. I did feel slightly disappointed that there was not a DVC discount at all of the gift shops though. It was hit or miss on what discounts each shop had. I found it odd that each shop had a different policy. Luckily we had APs, and the Disney Visa, so we were covered in most shops, but I know we won't do APs again, it was a one time deal to use up some points this year. I feel like the DVC discount should be available all throughout the resort, since it is "Disney's Best Kept Secret," after all. I also didn't care for the number of cards I had to carry. I had my room key, and then I also had APs for each member of my family. It would be super convenient if they could put everything on one card. Then I could scan the one card for my whole family to get in the park, and get fast passes. I really don't understand why they even bother with park passes, when they had us all scanning our fingers to get in. Shouldn't they just be able to match the print, and pass in a database, and allow entry? That would make it even more simplistic, and possibly have one carry only one key card, to open the room. I know that is pretty picky, but I felt like it took forever some days to get into the park, due to all the finger scanning, and ticket insertion. All in all, I am very happy that I decided to purchase DVC, and even happier that I bought at OKW. I think it will be something that my family will love for years to come.
