Like others have said, I'd like to have the ability to pay for APs over 12 months.

I'd also like to see either an earlier booking window for FPs or more FPs for members.

I'd like more flexibility in the dining plan. We don't need 2 meals and 2 snacks per night of stay. I would like the option to buy elements of the meal plan a la carte. If that's not in the cards, then I'd like to see discounts or TiW extended to include QS locations.

"Welcome Home," well if they really meant it then what about DVC members being treated as if it was our Floridian home and offer us all the different rates they offer Floridians such as...........

Florida Resident Discount on Platinum Plus Pass $1,064
Florida Resident Platinum Pass $958
Florida Resident Gold Pass $745
Florida Resident Silver Pass $553
Florida Resident Theme Park Select Pass $468
Florida Resident Weekday Select Pass $372
Florida Resident “After 4” Epcot Annual Pass $329
Florida Resident “After 2” Water Park Annual Pass $95

And for DVC members who unlike most Floridians have "skin in the game" we are only offer the Gold Pass at $745 and the Platinum Pass at $958

I noticed free dining is back .

It would be nice if it was offered to those staying in DVC too.

Having re-read Kim's title asking for *one* change, I'm going to name the one thing that matters the most to me:

For ease of planning (i.e., using my DVC), the biggest change I would welcome would be additional FP options including the removal of tiering for DVC members. Essentially, give us what concierge gets for a fee.

The changes we've discussed seem to fall in either preserving value of the product or ease of enjoying Disney. For me, since we intend to keep our contracts for life, my primary concern is the park experience.

So - that's me *one* thing.

After thinking several things through, I think DVC maintaining the value of our contracts, and giving DVC members an edge in park touring would strengthen the value of DVC as a "Club." To that end:

New Things:
TiW as an included perk with membership
More FP Allotments (or same day allotments, or removal of tiers for DVC members)

DVC Value:
Remove the latest resale restrictions on Riviera (the earlier ones don't bother me as much).

This assumes not eliminating an existing perks like discounted APs and special member events that have a real value.

I'd love something more than a $20 discount on APs at Disneyland.

I come at it from a different perspective. In real estate, there is the "Bundle of Sticks" theory. In short, its the idea that when you purchase a piece of real estate, you are in purchasing a bundle of rights. These rights, or sticks, each has value individually and when a stick is removed from the bundle, there is a loss of value of the bundle collectively.

When we purchase DVC it is a real estate transaction. Obviously, Disney removed many of the sticks before we purchased. Most noticeably the "Right of Possession" with regard to when we can visit and the expiration date of our contract.

What bothers me is that Disney has removed sticks after we closed. That doesn't sit well with me.

I am sure Disney dotted their Is and crossed their Ts and it is all legal. However, I still don't like it. We can't sell the same bundle of sticks that we bought and therefore it has less value.

Practically speaking, the point reallocation would not have affected me because we stay in 2 bedrooms. And they rolled it back when people complained. However, DVC indicated that they might try it again in the future.

What would make me more comfortable with recommending DVC would be if it was cast in concrete that the total points at a resort could not be increased. Ever.

Have I had my head in the sand? When did this happen? Which resort? Details, please.....???!!!???

I agree with those who have said at least give us “welcome home” ticket discounts and options similar and equal to the Florida residents. If they’d throw in a free TIW card every other year or so, that would be great; but I know all of the discounts and freebies are accounted for and become a contributor to our annual fees, so it’s really just optics and “feel-good” stuff regardless.
So, just reduce my annual fees and I’ll be thrilled.
