I just saw on DVCnews that DVC have declared the first Riviera rooms. I’m quite excited about this - the place doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of love at the moment, but I think it’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished.
Oh! Was the points chart released ?
Ok, I just read the article. Are they saying it is “GFV like points”?
I think they expect them to be similar, which makes sense. It will certainly be interesting to see how much the points will go for. Boy am I glad we bought in at $79 per point in 2003…
I believe there were rumors that it would be the “first moderate DVC”. Those points, combined with the resale issues, will be interesting.
That rumour was purely based on location. And the idea that facilities would be shared.
Boy were they wrong. I’ve always said this would be a flagship DVC resort! Arguments can rage but no way this is “moderate”.
So there will be DVC Riviera contracts, yes? Right now they are just teasing with our brains? I got an email dangling the opportunity for DVC peeps to book, but i’ve not yet called so I don’t know if that means for points or $$$
Did you really get an email ? I am getting tired of this cloak of invisibility …::
Yes. It was one of their “How lucky you are to be DVC!” messages (which is true) which got me exploring Riviera (as intended, I guess I am a Disney Sheep).
Yes- hi, my name is Mary. I bought direct from Disney, and I am invisible…
Since they’ve declared the first lot of rooms, they can now start selling.
So info about points charts, price and the timeline for selling should be out soon.
When they first released booking for December I compared the other DVC cash pricing on their calendar and found GF was closest to Riviera.
