So this means that RIV resale owners might be able to stay at RIV AND new resorts from that point on?

That’s what it appears based on this language, but Disney has made no announcement - so hard to know for certain.

Interesting since this is what a guide said to me two weeks ago. I was upset because I thought he was lying to try to get me to buy. Sounds like maybe he was just giving out unreleased information.

I would guess it's just because it is referencing future resorts and Riviera is no longer a future resort.

Or does it mean resale current resale owners that bought after Jan 2019 can now stay at Riv as well?

The broker asked Disney to specify which resorts new owner is eligible to book at and they replied including Riv in list. See attachment.

Unknown. I’m in that boat of the post Jan 2019 and so far not able to on dvc site.
The broker doesn’t yet have a client that has points loaded into account with this new wording in their contract, so not able to test yet.

Not sure if I’m blind, but that doesn’t that document only talk of direct purchases being used at 14 or 16 DVC resorts. Too many ways to interpret it. Could also be the start of DVC II. We will find out soon. As of right now I wouldn’t buy RIV resale and expect to stay at VGF or any new resort.

It's interesting that it went from saying "14 resorts" to "16 resorts" and that the Animal Kingdom is divided into AKV and AKV2, which I'm presuming means Jambo vs Kidani? Why are they breaking them out as two different resorts? Do they plan on not making them the same "home" in terms of priority and combining points?

The broker Facebook page has a Facebook thread going on the topic showing the language before and after too. 14 resorts to now 16 resorts, which for whatever reason has AKL split into two.
Am I allowed to say the exact broker on here? I don’t want to get banned.

On a whim, I tried to make a reservation at Riviera, but only my direct contracts appeared as contracts I could select when making the booking. If Disney is making a change, it's not there yet.

it's in there! (Not accusing you of being blind or anything - LOL!)
I see it now. I was trying to read it on my phone and the writing is a little small. Had to take a pic of it and blow it up. “Resale contracts purchased for the existing 16 DVC resorts will only be able to exchange into those 16 resorts. “
To me this sounds like DVC II is on the way with Reflections, DVC tower in CA or whatever they build next. Not sure why they break AKV/L into 2. Prior to RIV they have always stated 14 DVC resorts. RIV would make 15.

Post the URL to the broker's main website. If it comes through, you're good!

I just bought resale contract and it showed up in August and it definitely can not be used for RIV.

Honestly, until it is confirmed by Disney that resale contracts can be used there, I would not buy with that assumption.

It also contradicts itself and as mentioned, AKV is now being considered 2 resorts.

Now, could it mean that changes are coming? Maybe.
