Commonly vaunted by Disney as its “flagship resort,” and “crown jewel” of the DVC Disney World resort collection … join Chad and his guests, Emily Hicks and Sam Schapmann, as they reminisce on the history of one of Disney World’s most storied resorts — The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. We explore the history of the resort all the way through the DVC addition and secondary offering of DVC points when they converted the Big Pine Key building to DVC.
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 compare and contrast the Villas at the Grand Floridian vs. the Polynesian Villas and Bungalows. What are the pros and cons of each resort? What do DVC members like about each resort? We cover everything about each of these Disney Vacation Club resorts. Rooms to Restaurants, Point Charts to Pools and Parking, and Transportation to Themes.
