    Disney Vacation Club Store At Ikspiari?

    Anyone heard about this?
    Disney Vacation Club to Open International Sales Center at Tokyo Disney Resort : Disney News : StitchKingdom.com

    Stitch Kingdom is reporting that a Disney Vacation Club storefront is opening at the Tokyo Disney Resort. The photo on the website certainly looks like it's in Ikspiari.

    Yes, a Vacation Club guide mentioned this to me last Saturday at a member event at the Grand Californian Hotel. That was fast!

    I hope this eventually leads to DVC style villas at the Disney hotels in Japan.

    From the picture it looks like the former site of Planet Hollywood, which closed last year. Despite Ikspiari being owned by the Oriential Land Company, Disney have the lease on that bit of property, and its in a very central location next to the Disney Store which Disney now also own !

    Maybe I can finally use my points for DVC in Japan- I know we can use them now- but don't want to blow all my points for the year for a 2 or 3 night stay & the one time I actually tried- they never had rooms available for me.

    The sales center is for Hawaii, they are focusing heavily on the Japan market.

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    One can assume that if sales are strong, they will consider building villas at TDR.

    This is the same way it happened at Disneyland. When DVC sales started in CA, they were selling Saratoga Springs.

    I know what you mean. I have been to TDR many times, but not since joining DVC. I am thinking using half points at the Mira Costa, then switch to another Disney hotel with cash.

    But I also question availability.

    Interesting that if there view the Japanese market in such high regard, why there havn't considered building something a bit closer to home, like the Okinawa Islands.

    Oh so that's what they were doing to the building! It's such a waste of a good area and big space! At least it won't be empty anymore...

    I just stayed at the Disney Ambassador for five or six nights--peak season rate was 375 points, and I booked it with no problem months ago.

    Not sure they need to. Hawaii is a popular destination for the Japanese from what I've seen.
