Best DVC Home Resort
Consider Your DVC Home Resort Location
Picking the best DVC home resort depends on your personal preferences and how you like to vacation. If you like to rope drop Magic Kingdom multiple days on your trip, you might want a monorail loop resort. Maybe food festivals and late Epcot nights are your favorite. It sounds like one of the options within walking or boating distance of the park would be a great fit. Considering other modes of transportation available at your potential home resort can be helpful too. Being near Disney’s Skyliner really opens things up. Of course, the monorail connects Magic Kingdom and Epcot, too, so any place on the monorail loop provides more options.
Think About Dining at Your Home Resort
Aside from location, dining options at your resort can enhance your experience. If you’re deciding between a few resorts, think about the meals you’ll eat at your resort most often. It might be dinner on check in day so you can settle in and relax. Breakfast is a big deal for some travelers so maybe checking that your resort has decent options for that helps you choose.
Your DVC Home Resort Theme Can Be Important
For most Members, it’s possible to use your points to book at different DVC resorts. Still, when choosing a home resort you want to make sure the theme is one you’ll enjoy being welcomed home to. It’s worth spending a little more or waiting for the right contract to get what you know you’ll love. If the European charm of Disney’s Riviera Resort just makes your heart sing, go for it. Know that if you purchase resale at Riviera, there are booking restrictions and you can only book there so you definitely want to love it. Maybe it’s the thought of the palm trees swaying and boat rides to Disney Springs from Disney’s Old Key West Resort that intrigues you. The theme of the resort impacts a lot of your stay from the style of food offered to the lobby aesthetics to your room decor.
