Where's Your Fantasy DVC?

With DVC Rumors heating up about a new Polynesian property - the leading "I wish there was DVC at" location could soon become a reality. So where next?

If you could build a DVC complex anywhere, where would it be? mickey

Oh i think the Poly would be where I wanted one! And there are rumors about that which I hope are true. But if I can't pick the poly how about another resort near Epcot with like a world showcase theme? I know I'm totally making up a resort but I think it would be awesome to have something really diverse like that.

We love the epcot areas. The world show case idea would be amazing.

Has anyone else read this article? These all sound like what many of us are asking for.

Interesting. Quite possibly a good thing some of those never came to fruition. With today's current political climate, not sure the "Persian" resort would be looked upon favorably, although I'd love to stay at the Thai resort and it would make a fabulous place for a spa!!

I would like to see an adults only DVC. Nothing scandalous, but something that does feature a few more adult oriented amenities like a swim up bar, hot tubs aplenty, most rooms with king beds, and of course, no cheerleading/dance team/Brazilian tour/Pop Warner groups!!

Magic Days- thank you for that! It's an amazing article. And it would have been really cool if those resorts wouldn't have fallen through. Maybe we will see them sometime in the future.

If you like Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, then you are going to love:

Disney's new Borscht Belt Resort and Spa celebrating the spirit of the 1960's resorts of the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. Each building pays tribute to a different vintage Catskill's resort; Kutchners, Grossingers, The Concord and others.

For entertainment, you'll be regaled in the evenings by hack comics and washed-up lounge singers at Disney's new state-of-the-art, night club, "Mickey's Joint" where you really should "try the veal"," tip your waiters" and "drive carefully." Get your dance on at the Saturday night dirty dancing contest where you may have the time of your life.

For outdoor entertainment, try skiing on our man-made snow on our man-made mountain. Central Florida's finest skiing is found at Disney's Borscht Belt Resort and Spa. Then curl up at the lodge in front of the fire with a hot chocolate.

All resort rooms are bungalow style with running hot and cold water, flushable toilets and modular shower stalls. Luxuriate on our pull-out couches and stretch your toes on the vintage shag carpets.

And best of all, it's all just a 90 minute bus ride to any Disney Park.

Disney's Borscht Belt Resort and Spa, where the spirit of the 1960's Catskills resorts still lives.

I would like to see some cabins at Fort wilderness converted to DVC. They pretty much have everything already except for the spa tubs. My hubby and I love it there but using points to stay is way out of the question.

My fantasy DVC would be an all new DVC only monorail resort. I will admit, I have not come up with a great theme for it yet. I like the castle idea the best so far.

Ooooo... I like that idea. Could we put it on the Epcot Monorail line? I'm sorta done with the construction on the Seven Seas Lagoon. It's getting so cluttered.

Oh, I never thought about that! There is a good bit of Monorail there to put resorts.

That would be perfect! A medieval themed "castle" type resort on the monorail line just north of Epcot. Maybe even just north of the Epcot parking lot. Monorail would enter and exit the resort via a draw bridge. The moat would be the resort's main pool.

Okay, when do we begin!

I never gave the EPCOT monorail a thought either. There would be tons of room. I still want my fantasy resort on the Magic Kingdom monorail though. My reasons for this are, I am really not an EPCOT fan (I know, how shameful). And, I like the water front resorts the best. As far as it getting to cluttered, I gave that a thought but then thought of the EPCOT resorts and I realized that I really like them although they are all much closer together than the Magic Kingdom resorts are. I guess I should say they appear to me to be. I honestly do not think the EPCOT area resorts looked cluttered.

Ugh! Okay - looking at Google Maps it would be harder than I thought to put something there without rerouting World Drive, the monorail, or filling in a lake. The monorail track is just too close to it, and the lake on the other side leaves no place to add parking or a real Lobby Building. Not as great a spot as I thought.

But then I noticed this spot on Epcot Resorts Blvd and thought that it may possibly be a good spot. They might have to make the monorail station towards the back of the resort though instead of in the lobby. Or - get creative with the parking situation. I think that this is the only spot thought that there's really enough space between the monorail and the road to build the stations around it.

This stop has the added benefit that it's already on Resort Blvd and has a small existing parking area that could be added on to.
