Does Disney inspire your inner creative? As DVC members, we love our resorts and have often dreamed about building a new resort. In episode 030 and episode 031, we give members the opportunity to share their creativity as they dream up new resort ideas on our armchair Imagineering competition. After listening to the episodes please vote for your favorite resort! The winner will advance to a celebrity round with former Disney Imagineer McNair Wilson. Who will win episode 030 and episode 031? Will the Haunted Mansion inspired resort edge out the Villain’s Getaway? Will the listeners prefer the luxury of the Skyline Resort and Spa?
Have you ever wondered how a DVC guide spends their points? Realistically, DVC is their job. What do they do to get away from work yet create magical vacation memories for their own families? Shortly after Andy Berry joined DVC as a member, he joined the DVC sales team as a guide. Earlier this year, he transitioned over to DVC Resale Market. In episode 029, Andy shares his DVC story and we get a glimpse of how a DVC guide’s family utilized their DVC points. Join in to learn about RCI, cruises, and Adventures by Disney.
“Hey, my DVC sisters and brothers!” If you’re a member of any of the DVC Facebook groups, that’s all the introduction you need to realize our guest for this episode is none other than Mr. Kevin McCloud. I consider Kevin “The Happiest DVC member on Facebook!” Kevin has the gift of packing pixie dust into pixels and filling our Facebook streams with pure joy. I find it ironic that Kevin shares a last name with the author of “Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids.” Just like the posts, Kevin brings happiness and joy to episode 028 and its sure to fill your bucket!

Mini-interview with Jeff Jorgensen about his family’s Disney experience. The conversation continues in Episode 026.
