    Just bought into Rivera DVC, thinking of cancelling and buying non-direct.

    On a cruise got caught up into buying into DVC for 250 points at Riviera. Just got home and after doing some research most likely will cancel and look into buying non direct. We have unique situation as well. We like to go to Disney every couple of years, BUT we live close to Galveston so...

    Availability of 2BR units across DVC

    How hard are the dedicated 2BR units to book across DVC at both the 11 and 7 month mark? I know it really depends on the date and resort, of course, but not sure if there are some usable general-purpose answers... It sounds like studios are always challenging to land, but are 2BR the same? If...

    Which DVC Villa to rent?

    So I really want to stay Polynesian Villa BUT I don't like that the 1 bedroom isn't available. I plan to stay for 2 weeks and I want a full kitchen because (crazy I know), Disney food doesn't impress me. It's too expensive and doesn't compare to a basic restaurant, let alone an upscale one but...

    We are taking my sister and her family to a 2 br dvc suite later this year. We all have the dining plan. Am I correct that since we’re all in the same “room”, the points will be pooled? Is there any way to split the points somehow to ensure that both families get their correct credits? thanks...

I now understand why they say a dining plan can be added up to 48 hours prior to check-in. My experience over the...
