Default 2020 Point Reallocation - Updated: Revised back to 2019

Looks like 2020 point charts are out and there are some per night rebalancing across the different seasons of plus or minus 1 to 3 points or so. This article only looks at one resort, but all the 2020 charts are up on the dvc site for review.

I checked my two resorts.

CCV shows a decrease for 3 bedrooms and cabins at the expense of the other categories - usually 1-2 points per night.

SSR shows a dramatic increase, sometimes as much as 3 points. What I can't figure out is why every single option in every single season went up? I thought to balance it they would have to have decreases as well as increases.

The only decrease I could find on the chart after a quick scan was Dream Season, 2 Bedroom, Premium View, weeknight - down 1 point. They can't have that much inventory to allow for dramatic rises for every other option across the board.

SSR 2019

SSR 2020

I predict some howling down the road. Studios certainly seem to be hard hit, and we know how people love the cheap studios.

(Disclosure: We have always stayed in studios, but we're an adult couple just happy to have accommodations. We can still stay the number of nights we always have, but it's getting tighter.)

I saw something on FB saying it was an article about the validity of the 2020 point chart increases so I am guessing there is some hubub about it. I haven't really looked into my resorts...I may do that now. Really curious about HHI weekends versus weekdays as I followed all year and weekdays were always booked up leaving the high point weekends open so I think they needed a slight reallocation to make weekends more desirable. Maybe they don't want or need to (maybe they book up via CRO).

i looked just at the first week in december at bcv, bwv, akv, and brv.

for most, the week in a studio went up seven points compared to 2018.

studios are taking the hit, as (i guess) they should.

There's been quite a bit of howling on the other board the past couple of days regarding the point reallocation. Seems as if DVCMC has figured out a way to get more breakage income from the charts by raising point requirements on both studio and 1BR stays.

The one bedroom increases are still a head scratcher. They were always the last to book, yet they have increased. Many two bedrooms have decreased making them much better values.

For us, it means more two bedroom stays for our family of four. Which means we can bring more friends and family.

I will adjust and accept this as a win.

This is exactly our reaction. As a 1 bedroom family, switching to a 2 bedroom and bringing grandparents is a no brainer. I anticipate the 2 bedrooms to be hot hot hot at BLT standard and BWV standard.

So what do you think this means? However, members may still end up paying more points per night for many stays, due to something called a "lockoff premium."

Would the extra day (Feb 29) factor in much?
