After staying at some of Disney's "moderate" resorts, we thought we'd try one of the DVC (Disney Vacation Club) resorts, which are mostly listed as "Deluxe."
We easily found many websites that match buyers & sellers - owners with timeshare points to spare sell them, which allows you to get the room at about what you might pay Disney for a regular Moderate room. Unused DVC rooms can be booked direct, but at a more expensive rate. The Disney rate for our studio was $299/night for the time we were there. If we had paid that we would have felt extremely unsatisfied.
The Studio was the same size as Disney's regular moderate rooms, with the addition of a tiny kitchen which featured a microwave, small fridge & coffeemaker. No sitting area. A tiny balcony with no view.
Also, these rooms come with LESS maid service. Towels get changed twice a week, room get cleaned once a week.
The grounds are HUGE, some rooms a 15 minute walk to the reception area.
Olivia's is fine, but overpriced & our server seemed distracted.
Bring your own booze & beer - the lobby shop sells for two to three times normal prices.
Overall - we thought it was worth less then some of the, lower cost, "moderate" rooms we've stayed in on Disney property.
