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.
