Our Team's Shows About Disney's BoardWalk Villas
Let’s keep the bougie going this week as we tackle Disney Vacation Club’s worst Grand Villas. When we say worst, we really mean we’re going to be a bit nit-picky. Is there such a thing as a “bad” DVC Grand Villa? Probably not, but there might be some DVC Grand Villas that just might not be your style or might not just be your personal favorite.
What are the three worst one and two-bedroom villas in DVC? We asked our panel of studio staying experts to give us their top 3 choices. We asked them to focus exclusively on the room as we've discussed the resorts in numerous other shows. We also asked each guest to choose their own descriptive language to describe their bottom three villas. Floor plan and decor preferences were significant factors in Episode 225
pools, restaurants, activities, and all of the other reasons you're going to want to book a vacation at Disney's BoardWalk Villas.
We're kicking off our BoardWalk Villas review series with a brief history of the resort and a unique perspective from one of the opening day DVC guides from the resort. Peter Scheidle from DVCHelp.com and our own DVC Newcast team researched the history. Humberto Santos from DVC Resale Market joins the show. Episode 175
DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there's something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.
Join the conversation as we host a classic DVC community debate between Team Beach Club and Team BoardWalk. Which resort has the best rooms, food & beverage options, amenities, location & transportation options, theme, and the overall best resort! Are you Team Beach Club? Team BoardWalk? Join the conversation and decide for yourself!
