Should Disney Have a DVC “Stub-Hub-esque” System

Today’s blog post originated when a friend of me rented points, had a reservation through a third-party vendor, and then lost his reservation when Disney discovered that the member who sold his points to be rented was behind in his dues payments.  The third-party vendor washed his hands of the old reservation and offered my friend a new reservation by at an increased cost which my friend declined.  However, today’s post isn’t going to argue who was wrong and who was right in this situation but to discuss should Disney run their own “Stub Hub/Points Exchange” program instead of letting this service be run completely by third-party vendors.

Disney Vacation Club and The Polynesian

Starting today, current members of the Disney Vacation Club can begin purchasing points at the newest property of the Disney Vacation Club…the Polynesian.  The addition of Disney Vacation Club villas and bungalows has been a major part of the renovations done at The Polynesian Village Resort and vacation club members and non-members have been waiting for sales to open.  Currently, only current members can purchase points at the Polynesian at the cost of $160 per point.  Sales for new members will begin on February 9th.  No word on if the sales will remain at $160 or will go higher.

Disney Vacation Club at Moderates?

As you know, I listen to a lot of podcasts while I write my articles.  Over the weekend, I was listening to the Mighty Men of Mouse Podcast.  They spent a couple of minutes discussing the possibility of Disney Vacation Club resorts making their way down the moderate level of Disney resorts starting with Caribbean Beach.  This got me thinking: Is this a good idea for Disney?  Does it make sense of Disney to start branching out into moderate resorts to expand the Vacation Club?
