The resorts listed in blue will receive a full refurbishment while the ones in green will receive a partial refurbishment.

Refurbishment by Resort

I thought that BRV did a full refurbishment 2015 - 2016 (when they put the twin murphy beds in the studios). Or was that not considered a "hard refurbishment"

One change that has corrected the pool situation is that there is no more pool hopping at Wilderness Lodge. Many Fort Wilderness guests flooded the boats coming over to use the pools. Now, the pools are very relaxing and hardly ever overcrowded.

More importantly, they greatly enhanced the DVC pool!

So, we got no peace from the kids out in the hall every day. Which meant nap time was actually not. So because of the second issue, it left a negative impression on us for the resort which we have not over come yet.



I have mentioned this several times, starting with Hope when she was thinking about buying her fixed CCV week.......The CCV fixed week is actually a decent deal and with 11 month availability being an issue, makes the deal twice as good!
The main pool IMO is still quite crowded. The quiet pool (DVC) was not ever even close to it. It's a vast improvement over past pool times for us. The main pool might be used during the pool party but even that we are outgrowing, and after we always headed to the quiet one.

Thank you!! I knew immediately I wanted the fixed week studio at CCV. 111 points Was almost tgtbt.
Plus, I know DSs will not be as involved in DVC as I am so it gives them the fixed week for future stays and easier to manage for those that canít plan, walk or stalk. They are not doing that. So it was a good contract to add them to for direct benefits now that they are young adults.
That 1 I will not sell if I ever decide to downsize.
The fixed week does provide awesome flexibility. I can call MS and have them convert my week to points and book what ever villa I like. I can bank and borrow. They perform like regular points when not booked as the FW.
The CCV 1 bedrooms only sleep 4 so if I am booking a 1 bed Iíd rather book AKV Kidani or BLT for the extra bath.
2 bedroom Iím booking the dedicated BCV or THV or OKW.
So itís nice to be able to have options across resorts and cherry pick the villas.

I'm 99% certain it's been confirmed that they all have tubs.

I know Micah has worked hard to ensure this is accurate. I have the link to this chart saved on my browser as a bookmark. I refer to it ALL the time. So helpful -- thank you again Micah You rock!
