I was hoping to get some insight about my honeymoon to WDW in July 2011.
My fiancee's mother has a timeshare with Hilton Grand Vacation Club, and there is a program that allows them to trade through Resort Club International (RCI) to get reservations at many of the Villas and DVC properties, including Animal Kingdom Villas, etc. I was hoping that someone who had stayed at these locations as a NON-member of DVC would be able to answer a couple of questions.
1. Will I be able to purchase the dining plan?
2. Will I get resort benefits such as Magical Express, Extra Magic Hours, etc.?
3. If we chose NOT to get the dining plan, would we recieve the 10% discount that DVC members get at many restaurants in the resort?
Any insight would be appreciated.
