Saw some on a resale site this morning for $160-165 5 contracts.

I saw those too. Itís $40k+ though for each of them because theyíre so large. If they were a bit smaller, I might be tempted.

Does anybody have any more information about direct price increases? I know that DDR incentives will change at the end of the month but will the $188 change? Will sold out resorts also increase? I've tried asking my guide but he doesn't seem to know anything...

Typically the guides get word a couple weeks before a baseline price increase so they can let people know to "buy now". I don't think the sold out resort prices are as predictable, but at this point we may just be looking at CCV going up. Even that was a soft prediction of 6/1 based on expected sell out. Perhaps they'll not renew Riviera incentives though

I havenít heard anything new. I did see someone say a guide confirmed the price increase at CCV on 6/1. I havenít talked to any brokers or guides lately though. What @pdude81 said is true that theyíll probably get the heads up shortly before it goes into effect to get a good push for sales.

I don't usually think it's true when people say others are jealous when they are rude or judgmental, but I kinda think it's true here. I don't want to love Riviera because I'd love it more if no one bought it just to show Disney we don't agree with the resale restrictions, but then I wouldn't get to own at Riviera and get to enjoy those bathrooms or the views or the Skyliner.

If we don't buy due to finances or because I just can't get past the restrictions, I will definitely be jealous of you... I think the only way to make this fair is if you promise to post very detailed trip reports so I can live vicariously through you. Kidding, well kind of. Congrats!

Also, the possibility of the price going up June 1 is making me feel as though I should purchase before then. Fie, Disney, fie. I can see you will probably have my money regardless of how hard I resist.

I don’t follow everything on MO and I missed your thread.

My guess is that people are so alarmed/disturbed/angry about the Riveria resale restrictions that they want it to be a failure, so DVC won’t continue down that path any further. If everyone can be convinced not to buy, it will be a failure. You buying frustrates that desire.

It’s easy to forget that someone in your shoes is excited to have bought and posts here to share that excitement. It’s the downfall of the internet, people forget good manners- that when someone you know shares good news, you don’t rain on their parade, you put your personal opinions aside and just let the good news be good.

You can discuss your critique of DVCs resale policy in a thread on that subject, or start your own thread to kvetch. So it’s not like good manners prevent intelligent conversation. There is a time and place for everything. A concept that sometimes gets confused on the internet.

So: Congrats on your Riveria purchase! Enjoy it.

I'm not sure you'll have to own at Riviera to stay at Riviera. There are no bungalows/cabins to throw off the point balances, and it's a decently sized resort. I think Tower Studios and Standard Studios (probably all Standard villas) will go fast, but Preferred Studios may be fairly easy to get at 7 months. My bet is that availability will be similar to BLT - you can get in at 7 months, not all views, but each size category should be available.

I've been watching the booking trends - Standard is booking fast, Tower gets booked up pretty dramatically, and there are a lot of sold-out weekends in standard, which makes me think local DVC owners are trying out the new resort.
