There is an old saying…you have to know what side your bread is buttered on.
They are selling units at an amazing dollar per square foot amount. (Remember that I am a real estate apprasier so these numbers mean something to me.) To be more correct they are leasing us the property to use, NOT selling anything. We own a real estate interest, but we don’t actually own the property.
The reason that they are “giving” free dining, and 7 for price of 4 deals is because they have to do something to get the people there and fill the rooms.
I’d don’t know the numbers but I’d guess that the typical DVC person spends WAY more with Disney than a typical guest. Many or most of us buy season passes EVERY year, we pay cash for dining even if it’s DDP, we probably take more behind the scenes tours etc too. The only difference is in what we pay for lodging, and considering that many guest pay to stay at value or moderates it’s not THAT great of a difference.
Plus we take more trips. This year I will have 6 or 7 Disney trips, PLUS the points I’ve rented for 7 trips for other guests!!!
And I think the thing that ticks me the most is that they just make the perk go away with no notice. We know MONTHS in advance when they are going to “enhance” our membership but are left to discover this on our own…like when we pull up to the valet. :mad:
