Disney Vacation Club announced a breakthrough in the charging accounts for weekend reservations. Starting next year the number of points will drop. Now do you really believe what you are being told?
Yes, indeedie, drop for Saturday and Sunday reservations drop they do. What they fail to notify the public about is this: DVC will be taking more for every weekday–often the least booked days–to balance out this accounting. To the timeshare owner–whoops I mean leasee–whoops again I mean vacation club member nothing has changed if you reserve for a week. Count up what it cost before at your home resort for 2009 for seven days straight then compare it to previous years. Take a look at 2010 numbers as well. Show me how this good for anyone except Disney. Could this be an advertising ploy?
I bet the same legal board of directors that made it illegal for DVC’ers to smoke in the buildings they had bought rights and failed to notify these people of the matter coming up for a vote at a meeting plotted out this.
