I could be really wrong on this but I feel convinced there's going to be some sort of FP+ benefit in the future (like you mentioned might be possible) with the blue card. I think that would be a huge perk and rumours about paid FP+ are circulating anyway. Also, depending on the cost of purchasing paid FP+ with a regular ticket, it could definitely be worth the investment (especially for those with large families), yet not a massive cost to Disney if they were implementing it anyway.If the minimum goes up to 120/125 there needs to be some consideration of what value is going in the buyers favor? If it’s simply you get the same Blue Card benefits that currently exist then you will have a tough time swaying experienced buyers.
Like I’ve said before... extra FPs for DVCers, Dining benefits, more DVC lounges, DVC preferred parking at parks, complimentary mousekeeping, etc
The only way I can see minimum going up benefiting anyone (other than Disney) is if they could pull cards from those who don't have the new minimum. Why do I say this? All benefits come from the profit of DVC. If they had less members with Blue Cards and new members had purchased more overpriced direct contracts they could "afford" better benefits.With all this said I cant see the minimum going up if moving more towards the interest of DVC members.
I predicted 2022 a while back which lines up right to your 1.5 years. Honestly borrowing is another thing that DVC likely would prefer to remove to allow for more breakage and people being required to travel every 12 months.Also expect the borrowing point restriction to be gone in the next year and half.
"Back like how it used to be" when? It wasn't until Ken Potrock threw that big 25th DVC anniversary bash at MK in 2016 that we started seeing all these perks, like Moonlight Magic and the Epcot lounge. I can't remember when DVC members started getting discounts on APs (we had no reason to buy them until 2014, I think), but I do remember all the years here on the DISboards with DVC owners moaning about how we were neglected because Disney already had our money and knew they had us locked down to come back over and over to spend money at WDW....I was told that Disney was moving more towards the mantra of taking care of their DVC members first over others back like how it used to be.
