Things I Would Like To Know About DVC

Being a DVC member I have a few thoughts about a few things…

These are things that I have thought up because after all DVC members are in it for the long haul… Regular vacationers aren’t making the investment we are.

  1. With the money we pay, and comfort of “HOME” why don’t we have outdoor cushions on the chairs on our patios?
  2. Why can’t we pool hop to Stormalong Bay?
  3. Why don’t they offer some sort of Dining points?  Like 1-2 points per night per person for meals…
  4. Why can’t they allow DVC to get discounts on things in more than just 1 or 2 places?
  5. When are they going to offer the additional years to the other DVC resorts?  (They offered them to OKW owners)

These are just a few of the questions I have come up with over the years of owning DVC.  If you have any insight please feel free to comment here with your thoughts.

Getting Ready To Go…1 Week Left.

Well, we leave for Disney World in just about 1 week.  While there I will be bringing you some reviews of some of the dining, and just about anything else you can imagine, or want.  We will be going to see the newest of DVC resorts…Bay Lake Towers, and we will be staying in the Animal Kingdom Villas, so we will look at that.  We will do an extensive review of the dining plan.

We will be blogging from Disney nightly from the 30th of October through the 6th of November.

Some Stuff To Note

Upcoming Site Stuff…

A member area will be created that will have downloadable files of autographed character photos.  These make cheap, but one of a kind souveniers.

A member area will be created that will have downloadable ringtones in mp3, and wav format.

Upcoming Videos…

Video of the Treehouse Villas should be up within 24-48 hours.

Video of the Street Party parade in the Magic Kingdom should be up within 24-48 hours.

Photos of the Fort Wilderness Meadows pool should be up within 24-48 hours.

Questionable Things…

There is an island on Bay Lake other than Discovery Island. What is its name?
We had a boat captain tell us it was Shipwreck Island…
This was because Walt had crashed there…

Seven Seas lagoon being man made we all know, but it is called this because it is water from the seven seas… So says a boat captain.

Factual Things…

The new buses at Ft. Wilderness have a small display in the public view, and has a automated voice that calls out the next stop, etc.

All animals from Discovery Island went to Animal Kingdom.  They were transported by a boat named Disney Ark 1.

The Meadows pool area at Ft. Wilderness is in final stages of completion.  The slide, jacuzzi, and kiddie pool are finished.  There is other misc construction still going on.

Trails End buffet… There was prime rib, pizza, chilli, salad, shrimp, chicken, soup, desserts, and more.

For the vacationer with a car…  Sizzler @1 mile North of Downtown Disney on Apopka Vineland Rd. South has excellent food, and very cheap.  Another popular place is Ponderosa.

You can view a 3d model of the treehouses at Sarota Springs in the theatre.

You can walkthrough a actual model of the Animal Kingdom villas in the Saratoga Springs theatre.
