So, in early January I went online and ordered both the new WDW Vacation Planning Package and at the same time ordered the Disney Vacation Club package. The differences are quite amazing.
First, the DVC video showed up 3 days after I ordered it. The WDW video showed up last week. Over a month in transit? The Video is very professional, low key, informative(to a point), and just a good promo.
DVC called me a week and a half after I received my DVC video to ask me if I got everything and if I had questions, requests, etc. All that I said was that I would like some pricing info. The next day, a FedEx overnight package with my full color, hardback, glossy page and embossed cover DVC coffee table book showed up. It is A M A Z I N G! I have never been blown away with the quality of Disney advertisements like this before. They're either really focused on quality service here, or really smell a sucker and are hungry for my moolah.
Well forward a month or so later, I got my WDW package. Over watching it for the first 35 seconds, the WDW video is obnoxious, loud, and has annoying people taking you around the parks. The quality was very good, but it just was annoying to the point of me just turning it off. The "Thrill Seeker" guy just made me want never go to WDW again... not really.
Does this obnoxious stuff actually work for Disney? It just seems that every year, the DVD's get more and more like this. Next year they'll have someone on fire walking around the parks or Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men or something. I much more love the way the DVC vids do their junkety junk.
Does anyone actually like the new WDW video?
BTW. I'm a DVC member now and I love it!
