Derek Sasman (Rope Drop Radio) DVC Journey

Derek from Rope Drop Radio share's his family's Disney journey. The Sasmans have been lifelong Disney fans. A significant part of their Disney journey is becoming DVC members. Derek's wife had DVC-related photos on her dream board for years. During the COVID lockdown, their businesses bloomed while spending decreased, allowing them to pay cash for their first DVC contract.

Derek is the co-host of one of the fastest-growing Disney podcasts: Rope Drop Radio. The show is in a simple format. Derek and Doug McKnight, two Disney dads, have become good friends and share their passion and their family's Disney journeys. The show was sponsored by Doug's wife, Michelle, until Michelle's travel agency picked up the show. If you're a fan of Rope Drop Radio, you'll find some fascinating conversations where.

DVC is the Bruno of travel agency-sponsored shows.

Travel agent-sponsored shows do NOT talk about DVC! The reason is simple. Travel agencies' best customers are the ones who book a Disney vacation with the agency every single year. When you join DVC, you book directly with Disney. Part of your savings as a DVC member comes from the travel agency commission. As a result, you won't find much DVC-related content or discussions on most travel agent-sponsored shows. At My DVC Points, we respect all of the content these shows do create; however, we try our best to fill that void with content that focuses on DVC members. We're honored to have Derek as a guest on our show and to be able to share his perspective on DVC.

Derek and his wife are lifelong Disney fans. DVC was a life goal. His wife had DVC-related photos on her Dream Board for years. The sun, stars, and moon aligned up during COVID for the family to join DVC.

Our positive, respectful, and authentic conversations about Disney Vacation Club are designed to help people make informed and educated decisions about what's best for their families.
