I was poking around at pricing of things, anticipating our planned two trips in 2020. Something that caught my eye was looking at the number of points various DVC places are in 2019 versus 2020. As seems to always be the case, Disney finds a way to stick it to their guests, apparently. A week DVC that was 194 pts in 2019 is 208 pts in 2020. This means you are paying more money (essentially, if you rent) for the same property, and if you have DVC pts, you are getting LESS for the same pts you bought into.
At such a rate increase in point value, it seems that the “benefit” of DVC (if there is one) diminishes more and more over time. That is, if, when you bought into it with enough points to get like 2 weeks at a resort, then at some point down the line those same points will only really get you a week (unless you decide to use the points at a LESSER property).
This seems wrong to me. Almost false advertising. I would expect point values of various resorts to stay the same over time, but perhaps only the cost per point to go up. In this way, those who are buying into DVC will be paying the new price, but those who invested long ago are getting the same benefit they bought into.
Anyhow, it is making it hard for me to budget properly for this kind of thing. Disney trips are wildly expensive that take years for me to save for. It is even harder to save for a moving target! Sigh
