    Two separate people (one English on Dibb, the other USA on another forum) have both reported that CMs have said SSR is shortly to get a 'major revamp' which will include Murphy Beds. I wondered if anyone else (DVC Mike?) had heard similar?

    Refurbishments have recently been completed at Kidani Village, Vero Beach and Villas at the Grand Californian. Old Key West refurbishments are underway. The last soft goods refurb for SSR was in 2013, so the next one shouldn't be until 2020.

    Ok thanks Mike, I suspect you will be the first to hear if there is any truth to the reports.

    Thanks for the intel, and welcome to DVCinfo! I don't doubt it will happen, just a question of when. In other news, ROFR activity was reportedly more than double in January, specifically SSR. It seems to be a hot seller direct, so perhaps something is afoot.

    :welcome3:

    Thanks, great site by the way. Love all the charts about historical price increases etc, some real work gone in there.

    I think the WAY higher than average ROFR for SSR in early 2017 is directly related to DVD's promo when buying new Poly contracts direct .
    "Now through May 31, 2017, when you add on at least 125 Vacation Points at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, you'll receive 100 one-time-use Vacation Points which you may use for a weeklong stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. "

    They have to get those "free" points from somewhere I guess . :duck:

    No Murphy beds at SSR! I am adamently opposed to increasing occupancy - and the associated wear and tear - at SSR. Spruce it up, sure. Change the core, no.

    I think there is plenty of excess SSR inventory that goes to Disney to rent at 60 days that they can reimburse DVC for to trade for the added bookings. Plus they own 2% of SSR, which doesn't sound like a lot, but SSR is a huge resort. I'm thinking it's for resale.

    If you search the comptroller website, you'll see they are reselling SSR quite a lot- at $145 a point! These are no small contracts either, and people are getting large Disney mortgages to pay. It's a bit crazy if you ask me, I just managed to get a 160 pointer for 75 a point all 2016 points banked into 2017 which I immediately rented out, meaning a contract with all 2017 on points cost me $64 a point- compared to $145. Madness.
