You will have limited housekeeping
Trash & Towel Service
For stays of seven or less nights, Trash & Towel Service is provided on day four. With Trash & Towel service, Housekeeping will: empty trash and replace liners in trash bins, provide fresh bathroom linens, replace shampoo, facial soap and bath soap, replenish facial tissues, paper towels and toilet paper, replenish coffee, sugar, cream and sweeteners, replenish dishwashing liquid, dishwashing detergent, sponges and laundry detergent as needed in one-, two- and three-bedroom Vacation Homes.
Full Cleaning Service
For stays of eight or more nights, Full-Cleaning Service is provided on day four and Trash & Towel Service is provided on day eight. After that, the cycle begins again on day 12. With Full-Cleaning service, Housekeeping will provide everything included with the Trash & Towel Service, plus: change the bed linens, vacuum and dust, clean the bathroom(s), clean the kitchen/kitchenette and wash the dishes.
You may also choose to pay for daily housekeeping or have additional towels etc. Check with the front desk for information and pricing. If you are not using Disney Vacation Club points (your own or rental) and paying “cash” you WILL have regular daily housekeeping.
You Might Save on the Parking Fee at the Resort
Disney Vacation Club Members will not be charged for standard overnight self-parking when staying at a DVC Deluxe Villa, regardless of whether they use vacation points or another form of payment. Members also will not be charged to park when using vacation points to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
You May Have Access to DVC Exclusive or Designated Areas and Locations
- Bay Lake Tower’s Top of the World Lounge (on the 16th floor) offers limited appetizers and is open 5pm to midnight — and one-of-a-kind views of the Magic Kingdom‘s Happily Ever After nighttime show.
- Most of the DVC resorts have pools dedicated to DVC guests; however, these pools are not exclusive to DVC members.
You Can Cook Your Own Meals
Depending on the size room you book you will have some sort of kitchen facilities — from a kitchenette in the studio villas (these will generally have a microwave and no oven) to a full kitchen (oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher) in 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom villas.
The shops in the resorts have a limited supply of basic grocery items (they are expensive) so if you do plan on doing some of your own cooking it may be easier on your budget to stop, taxi, or take an Uber/Lyft to a Publix (Florida’s grocery store chain) and pick up the groceries you will want during your vacation.
Your Room will be 100% Pre-Paid by the Time you Arrive
Whether you are a DVC member or renting points, you will have pre-paid for your room before your arrival – one less thing to think about during your trip. Typically, when you stay and pay “cash” at a Disney resort, you pay a deposit of one night, and when you arrive the remainder of your room fee is charged. If you are staying DVC you will have already taken care of that!
