Gateway to Discovery DVC Welcome Center at Disney Springs
Posted: Wednesday March 6, 2024 8:36am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

A new Disney Vacation Club welcome center has opened in the Town Center at Disney Springs.

'Gateway to Discovery' takes over the former Alex and Ani space near the Guest Relations building and showcases DVC's offerings worldwide.

Like the DVC kiosks found in the parks, the new Disney Springs location includes interactive video kiosks, models of DVC properties, and a Mickey Mouse photo op.

Later this year, a new DVC lounge will open on the second floor.

Of course there is. :rolleyes: DVC is the only thing they have any interest in expanding.

Haven’t heard specific places but substantial growth coming. YC is usually booked pretty solid as is with convention travel back, but I could see POR being a target with its huge room inventory. I think reflections is only a matter of time, it’s prime real estate.

My guesses: -Reflections is back on the agenda to be linked with the FW cabins - Poly sales dates announced - More resort rooms being switched to DVC “resort studios” at GF, Jambo or YC. Possibly the Garden Wing at Contemporary. An outside shot for POR, now that there’s a precedent at FW.

Parks are not the only thing about to get “turbocharged”, it looks like there are some announcements ahead for DVC

I think the cost of tickets now is what makes it not a value. Like even if you’re getting the hotel for free the tickets are sooo pricey.

Bob WANTS you to buy Riviera... Bob NEEDS you to buy Riviera... But friends don't let friends buy points at Riviera.

Sounds Kinky. I'm in!

Once in, you don’t see daylight again until you’ve bought 300 points at Aulani or Riviera.

It doesn’t save much- when I ran the numbers it took about 18 years or so to reach break even. Buying secondary markets points will save you more of course. Just don’t buy Riviera unless you REALLY love Riviera!

🤣sad part is I’ve always wanted it and we could swing it, but it’s just not a good investment. Especially seeing we want to go other places sometimes. I haven’t seen anything lately to convince me otherwise. We’ve been going every year lately and don’t feel like dvc would have saved us money overall.

DVC sales isn't an offshoot?
