    We're recent DVC owners, and one huge motivation for buying was my lifelong dream of staying at the Poly (Poly stay at Pop prices, amiright?) Our intention from the beginning was to book May/ June '21 as soon as we were able, but now the refurbishment has been announced with it's rather vague...

    If not Reflections then where - Future DVC Resorts

    I know that is a long way off and there is still a lot of Riviera to sell but I have come to wonder what will be the next move for DVC if Reflections does not go ahead; I do hope it goes ahead though as I was one of the people who actually quite liked the disign. I know that the Disneyland DVC...

    Disneyland Grand Californian Resort Grand Villas

    We have booked a VGC Grand Villa for May 2021. I have seen views from the park side but never the pool side. Does anyone have pics looking out from the Grand Villa pool side? I have heard it has a good view of DL and the fireworks.

    Just Back-Poly/AKL/GF/CCreek Stay

    I just got back from a 2 week trip as a first time DVC owner and I had an AMAZING time! 3 adults traveling and we wanted to try the different resorts to see what we liked.

    Minimum for direct benefits raising on 10/1

    Was told today that the minimum for blue card is raising to 125 points on 10/1. I’m sorry but WHAT??!! What are they thinking?? Most direct benefits are absolutely useless right now. You can not even buy an annual pass if you’re a new member. I kindly told my rep “No Thank You” and went back to...

    Rented Points

    I just recently stayed at a DVC Resort renting points from a member. My credit card shows a pending charge for the reservation in the amount of the stay. Has anyone ever rented and had their credit card charged as well. Just curious as to how the process works post checkout.

    Disney Visa and DVC Purchase

    Has anyone ever used their Disney Visa as a down payment on a DVC before. Didn’t know if it still came with the 2% back and the six months interest free financing.
