Jodi Gross from DVC Resale Market joins the show to discuss our quarterly recap of resale prices, inventory, and the Right of First Refusal.  While the overall market is slightly down from when it peaked in November 2021 to February 2022, month over month, the unweighted prices were up $8 across all the resorts.  If the market is cooling down, it’s not by much as prices are relatively stable and steady.

Grand Californian owners review the DVC studios, 1-Bedroom, 2-Bedroom, and Grand Villas at the Grand Californian. The studios are fairly typical DVC. The 1 and 2 Bedroom villas have an awesome kitchen with a space-efficient booth-style kitchen table, a third bathroom with a walk-in shower, and the Grand Villas include a billiards table. The general consensus is that the room’s decor and design elements are slightly elevated above most DVC rooms; however, the real “star of the show” is the proximity to Disney’s California Adventure theme park and a quick walk to Disneyland.

Jeff Barnes, Ph.D., also known as “Dr. Disneyland,” joins the podcast to discuss Disneyland history circa the 1990s and early 2000s when Disney’s California Adventure and the Grand Californian Hotel opened up. Disney wanted to transform Disneyland from a single-day park to a multiple-day destination in Southern California. DCA and Grand Californian were essentially built in the parking lot for Disneyland. After Disney acquired the land for the current Mickey and Friends parking lot, the City of Anaheim paid to have the parking structure built to revitalize the 2-mile area surrounding Disneyland. The city wanted to transform the area into a tourist and convention district. The city used hotel taxes to fund the clean-up efforts. Disney was also considering building a second gate a few miles away in Long Beach. The city successfully kept the second park within its city limits and was able to meet its revenue goals.
