DVC Members love staying in deluxe accommodations close to the magic of the theme parks, but sometimes we want to try some new Disney experiences! Members can use their points towards Disney Cruises, Adventures by Disney, and stays at non-DVC resorts, but this is not always the most valuable way to use them. That’s where Anthony and the team at DVC Rental Store come in! In this episode, Anthony talks about how DVC members can leverage their points through the rental market to make their vacation dreams – and those of other families – come true.
Tara Gray, and her husband Jason, have been visiting Walt Disney World multiple times a year for quite a while, but could never make the leap into becoming Disney Vacation Club members. Disney’s Riviera Resort changed all that!

Alicia and her husband were “bitten by the Disney bug” after bringing their two children to Walt Disney World for the first time in 2009.

For their family, the Deluxe Studios that sleep five, proximity to Hollywood Studios, and 50-year contract length were the best aspects for Disney Vacation Club’s newest resort.

This episode leads our Disney’s Riviera Resort review mini-series. The Riviera Resort is one of the most controversial resorts in Disney history due to the new resale restrictions implemented with this resort. Long-time DVC members and fans of resale are concerned that the resale restrictions will significantly impact the market value of Riviera contracts. Consequently, a lot of members see Riviera as a very poor value proposition. In today’s episode, we meet Micah Wyss, the founder of MousePerks.com, which is arguably the most value-driven content created by a Disney fan. Micah explains his rationale behind purchasing Riviera. We will hear from more Riviera owners in the series and end with a Riviera review episode.
