Bluegreen Resorts Counting On Next Generation Higher Incomes As Selling Points!

 

Bluegreen Resorts Counting On Next Generation Higher Incomes As Selling Points!

It’s also part of a move by the vacation ownership company to lure younger travelers. To do so, Bluegreen is seeking to expand into hip locations offering the types of activities and experiences that millennials may enjoy.

Bluegreen works on a points basis, in which owners buy points to gain access to the company’s properties. The more points owned, the more access a vacation owner has to top properties at peak times. The starting buy-in for points ranges from $10,000 to $15,000, officials said. Points can be carried over to another year, and owners can buy additional points, too.

We here at timesharefun.com are not advocates of the “Points Program” in the timeshare history. We prefer deeded timeshare weeks.  Points is buying air as far as we are concerned.  Also, the resale market is where you want to be if you are considering buying a timeshare property. Check out Tug2.net,  Vacationownershipforless.com .

Can You Believe This? Disney World Hotels Are Now Going To Charge For Daily Parking! Not So Magical!

Image

Walt Disney World Hotels Are Running to Start Charging for Parking( Video)

The new nightly fees could really add up .</ strong> Gather all the pixie dust you can, because Walt Disney World hotels will soon begin charging guests for overnight parking. Pricing, which differs based on Walt Disney World Resort’s three hotel categories, will begin with reservations starting March 21, 2018.

Overnight self-parking at value resorts, including Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century, and All-Star resort hotels will cost $13. Moderate hotels like Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Port Orleans will charge $19 each night, and both Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villas, which includes Disney’s Contemporary, Grand Floridian, and Polynesian Resorts among others, will charge $24 for standard self-parking .( Valet parking, available at select resorts, will increase from $25 to $33 nightly .)

Related: Eating Dinner at Disney Is About to Get More Expensive

Disney hotel guests will continue to park for free at Walt Disney World theme park, and guests visiting Disney inns — either to walk around Disney’s Boardwalk, dine at California Grill, or find the savannah at Animal Kingdom Lodge — will not have the responsibility at all.

The change is intended to align Walt Disney World resort hotels with other full-service hotels in the industry and other domestic resort practises, according to a Disney spokesperson. Over on the west coast, Disneyland hotels charge $20 for self-parking and $30 for valet each night, with flat rates applying to day guests as well, but it’s visually justified. The Anaheim-based theme park is famously tight on space whereas Walt Disney World, which is spread across over 40 square miles, has more room.

Though surrounding hotels not operated by Disney often tend to charge for self-parking , the swift change is surprising, adding as much as $168 to a family’s week-long Disney World vacation. Families visiting Disney World, particularly those with younger children, often opt to have a car during their vacation and drive to the theme parks for convenience and ease, regardless of if they arrived by airplane. Disney bus transportation can be convenient but often hour eating, and with simply collapsible strollers being allowed on the vehicle, is also possible challenging for larger groups.

Timeshare Travelers

Disney Vacation Club members. Participates in the timeshare-style program will receive complimentary overnight parking while staying at DVC Deluxe Villas — which include luxurious apartment-style rooms — or when paying with points to stay at any Walt Disney World hotel.

Walt Disney World has been dedicated to finding alternative revenue streams in the past few years, but many come in the form of optional vacation add-ons, like Early Morning Magic breakfasts or Disney After Hours events, and don’t affect regular guests. Beyond annual increases to theme park admission and Disney World parking, there have been few upcharges affecting guests across the board until now.

This will add up quite a bit for some families.

So, The Big TimeShare Companies Don’t Like Timeshare Cancellation Companies!

Oct. 15, 2017

So, The Big TimeShare Companies Don’t Like Timeshare Cancellation Companies!

Here’s an article about Diamond Resorts International going after legal firms, law firms that offer timeshare customers a way out of their contracts. We can see why they are upset but locking customers into long term contracts under high pressure salesman can be damaging as well. This is something that timeshare companies should address. The sales pressure that is applied to new customers is the same sales approach 30 years ago. The points program is where the fraud starts, in our opinion. Deeded weeks is our preferred timeshare concept. Click here for further information or resume below.
