010 Franken Resort - Member Mashup Competition - Create a New DVC Resort

Have you ever had a conversation that goes along these lines?  We love this resort, but we wish it had the pool from Beach Club, the monorail from the Magic Kingdom resorts and the room layout of Old Key West.  Episode 010 is a tribute to Mary Shelly's literary classic from 1818 classic: Frankenstein.  Just as Dr. Frankenstein brought something to life from bits and pieces, we originally tasked four DVC members to create a brand new resort by incorporating elements from other resorts.  Thus the “Franken Resort” show was born.  As our members started working on the project, the lure of armchair Imagineering took over, and our members created their unique immersive resorts.

The show was so much fun to research and record that our friends and family could not keep from joining in on the fun.  We think you're going to love this episode.  To plus things up a little bit more, we wanted this to be a competition.  We are asking our listeners to vote on the best resort!

Voting is easy.  Our polls will close on December 1, 2018.  You have two options.

Option 1 – Vote on Our Website – One Vote Per Person Please!

  3. An invitation to join an upcoming show with a former Imagineer.  McNair Wilson, who designed Hollywood Hotel Tower of Terror, volunteered to co-host and judge the final round.  (Teaser – I'm saving Episode 013 for an interview with McNair on the Tower of Terror backstory).
