DVC Member Cruises are the most sought after cruises in all of DCL. You have to be a DVC member who purchased points through Disney direct to set sail on a member cruise. (Part of the reason I bought more than the minimum points for a blue card from DVC was so that I would have points that I could use on a member cruise). Brian Flock from DCL Duo podcast and I discussed member cruises, and we decided to produce a joint show on DVC Member Cruises. We recruited Jonathon Hile and Cindy Leichner from the My DVC Points Community group on Facebook to join the show. Jonathon has been on three-member cruises, and Cindy has been on one member cruise. Join the conversation as we talk all things DVC Member cruise.
Andy Berry joins us for our monthly DVC Resale Market monthly update. Disney exercised Right of First Refusal on 22 contracts in August 2020. We’re back to pre-COVID resale prices. August was a banner month for sales and inventory is slightly low.
First episode of a podcast series focusing on New Member Education. If you’re a new member or researching becoming a member, we’re creating a podcast playlist just for you. Our panel will be made up of experienced DVC members that are very active in DVC facebook groups.
Dan and Holly Austin explain that they’ve been to Disney about every other year since their Honeymoon in 2012. In 2018, Dan started looking at the rising costs of a Disney vacation and bought into DVC thinking they would go every other year. However, once they acquired annual passes and stayed in deluxe studios and one-bedroom villas, addonitis quickly set in. In today’s show, we get to know our neighbor’s Dan and Holly Austin as they share their DVC story and Disney family memories.
Nick Cotton joins the show to return to the parks, unique opportunities we have to enjoy the parks during COVID, deals on discounted DVC points, and an update on the DVC rental and resale markets.
In Episode 109, we meet Heather Knecht. Heather transitioned from off-property to renting DVC points to becoming a member at Wilderness Lodge. In this process she provides a wonderful testimonial story for DVC Rental Store, DVC Resale Market and Monera Financial.
