Default Riviera Going to $195 on 1/29

Surprised this hasn't come up yet. Not sure what this says about pace of sales.

Iím thinking they are trying to create a last minute sales frenzy.

I thought about posting it yesterday but got too busy. I donít think anyone should attempt to analyze this. It could be trying to push sales at the end of the year, it could be because sales are doing so well, it could be because everything is doing the regular January price increase, etc. We have no information on their sales goals and how the actual sales are lining up with said goals. I know they just hit over 100k points in sales for the 4th month before the resort even opened. Like a handful of us have been saying, those resale restrictions are most likely here to stay whether we like them or not. FTR, I donít like them!

Lots more. Disney will have to make up for the costs of repairs and comps from MFs.

I saw that earlier this morn and it made me mad... do they even bother to promise a 20% savings or any figure at all anymore?
I guess those contractors want more money than theyíre worth!

People get hung up on the wrong numbers, especially when looking at costs for buying DVC. Buying at a brand new resort is still a very cost effective way to visit WDW over the life of ownership.

I ran a cost analysis of the Riviera Resort. When you buy from a new resort, you are buy 50 years worth of points. If you buy from a 2042 resort, you are buying 23 years worth of points. Riviera is offering twice as many points, yet people only focus on the price per point cost.

Anyway, buying Riviera is cheaper as an overall per point value then a lot of other resorts. Will it be 20% savings over time? Probably....but we really can't predict the future. If you look back 27 years ago and priced OKW purchase cost vs hotel costs then and hotel costs now, I am sure you will be a huge winner!

That's True, Except for a few problem that you also need to include the Dues. RR dues are about 20% higher and the room costs are about 10% higher.

That's why i always use this report.
