027 Debbie Ely Member at Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows and Proprietor of Vacation Club Loans
In Episode 027, we meet Debbie Ely who is not only our DVC neighbor but she also a timeshare industry insider. Debbie has worked in the timeshare industry for 20+ years and is a proud member of the Disney Vacation Club. We learn about her buying into DVC and her biggest regret as a DVC member. Hint! It’s not, “I should have bought sooner.” We also learn about the history of Vacation Club Loans and how they may be of service to our fellow members.
In episode 024 of the My DVC Point’s podcast, we’re getting to know Melissa Mullett of David’s Vacation Club Rental. Melissa calls (BRV) Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge home. We discuss the birth of the point rental industry and circumstances that arise that prevent members from using their points. We discuss how DVC is in a unique position in the timeshare industry in the fact that they’re the #1 vacation destination in the world, they own pop culture, they own magic, and DVC members can benefit from this draw through rental and resale. We discuss member education on banking and borrowing as it related to Use Year and Disney Cruise Swaps.
