We hope you all had (or are having) a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. Since this holiday is a celebration of all the hard work so many of us do on a day-to-day basis, we thought we'd shine a light on some of our favorite characters that put out an excessive amount of energy in their films, as well. That's right! This week we're celebrating The Hardest Working Disney Characters. So many of them put their noses to the proverbial grindstone to make their dreams come true. We'll be showcasing many of our favorites!  Once we wrap up our discussion of The Hardest Working Disney Characters, we decided to do a little segment sharing some of our wildest predictions for possible announcements at next weekend's D23 Expo 2022. Find out what we hope to learn at this year's Ultimate Disney Fan Event and see if any of our ideas become a reality. Next, it's time for the Disney Stories of the Week. In this episode, we share a big announcement that you may be interested in if you're a big Disney fan who also likes to help people plan their vacations. We also talk about a brand new rest spot for DVC Members that will soon be arriving at The Happiest Place On Earth. As always, we finish it all up with tips that might help you on your next vacation. Thanks for listening! Cheers!

Shannon, Pete, and Sue discuss temporary changes to Disney's Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions, return dates for nighttime entertainment at Disneyland Resort, and two new dining discounts at Walt Disney World for eligible DVC Members. N071 Season 7 of the My DVC Points Podcast was brought to you by: DVC Resale Market - Industry Leader in DVC Resales DVC Rental Store - DVC Point Rentals Monera Financial - Exclusively Financing DVC Contracts Patreon supporters in the My DVC Points VIP Producer Club. Changes to Genie+ Lightning Lane Attractions Effective February 25th through August 7th at Walt Disney World, Frozen Ever After, Space Mountain, and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will move to Genie+ Lightning Lane and no longer be offered as Individual Lightning Lane selections.  There are no changes to early theme park entry for resort guests. Source: Disney World website Return Dates Announced for Nighttime Entertainment at Disneyland Resort On April 22, 2022, the “Main Street Electrical Parade” and “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular will return to Disneyland park, and “World of Color” will return to Disney California Adventure park. “Fantasmic!” is preparing for its return to Disneyland park on May 28, 2022. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the “Main Street Electrical Parade”, this nighttime spectacular will return with an all-new, enchanted grand finale that celebrates the theme of togetherness. This universal theme is reflected in the creative concept of the grand finale sequence. Inspired by both the original design of classic “Main Street Electrical Parade” floats and Disney Legend Mary Blair's iconic art style on “it's a small world,” the new grand finale brings to life more than a dozen Disney Animation and Pixar stories. These stories will be interpreted in thousands of sparkling lights and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sound, with unique representations of beloved characters as animated dolls. As the new grand finale passes by, guests along each side of the parade route will see a different set of stylized scenes from classic and contemporary favorite stories such as “Encanto,” “The Jungle Book,” “Raya and the Last Dragon,” “Aladdin,” “Coco,” “Mulan,” “Brave,” “The Princess and the Frog” and more.  Source: Disney Parks Blog New DVC Dining Discounts at Jellyrolls and Space 220 Eligible Disney Vacation Club members can now enjoy special discounts at the new Space 220 Restaurant in Epcot and at Jellyrolls piano bar on Disney's Boardwalk.   Save 15% on Lunch and Dinner at Space 220 Restaurant.

For the first time in DVC history, most fall travel dates require more points than summer travel dates. The other travel periods remain fairly static. The 2023 changes only affect Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World Resort. They do not impact Disney's Vero Beach Resort, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort, The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawaiʻi. These point charts remain unchanged. The 2022 and 2023 Grand Floridian charts now show a new point category for “Resort Studio” rooms, with 3 views: standard, lake, and theme park. The "Resort Studio" rooms are the upcoming DVC expansion rooms in the Big Pine Key building. The Standard and Lake categories remain the same as the current Grand Floridian DVC studios, but the Theme Park view sets a new record for most expensive DVC studio.

Pete and Vicky discuss cuts at Hilton Head Island resort where B'Lou Crabbe and Shadow were terminated and discuss taxes, transportation, and other factors impacting our DVC membership dues. Episode N061 Season 6 of the My DVC Points Podcast was brought to you by: DVC Resale Market - Industry Leader in DVC ResalesDVC Rental Store - DVC Point Rental and Swap PartnerMonera Financial - Exclusively Financing DVC ContractsPatreon supporters in the My DVC Points VIP Producer Club. News Stories B'Lou Crabbe and Shadow “released” from Hilton Head Island resort DVC recently announced that popular character B'Lou Crabbe and his dog Shadow were released from their contract at Hilton Head Island. These two had been entertaining guests at the resort for 21 years and were summarily dismissed by Disney.  If you wish to show your support, we have linked the Facebook fan page where people post their experiences and contact information to get in touch with Disney.   Source: B'Lou Crabbe and Shadow's Facebook Page DVC Publishes Our 2022 Dues On November 9th, DVC released the regular dues for the various resorts. On their DVC Member account, every owner will have a link to the details for their resorts, but we thought we would share some info. For non-WDW resorts, Aulani had a 3.7% increase to $8.67 for the unsubsidized dues, which is pretty standard. VGC was higher than most at 6.9%, as increases occurred across the board. Hilton Head Island only saw a 0.9% increase, while VB saw a 6.2% increase to $11.94, the highest of any resort by almost $2.  On average - the dues for WDW resorts only rose by 2.3%. We believe there are two main reasons for this: the lowered tax assessments and the decreased transportation fees for many resorts, likely due to the removal of Magical Express.  Of note: Old Key West saw the most significant change at 5.3% $8.81 per point, mainly because the reserve funds have dwindled and needed to be increased. OKW is now the most expensive of the DVC resorts in Walt Disney World and the third most expensive dues overall. The Polynesian also saw a 4.6% increase to $7.39 per point and 33 cents increase, surging it out of the bottom three. We noticed an INCREASE in transportation costs versus other resorts and administration and front desk costs rising by 25% for unknown reasons. The happiest members will be at Copper Creek and Riviera - where dues remained essentially flat, as well as Boulder Ridge with a mere 0.5% increase.
