I thought the biggest news at the Dec 10, 2015 annual meeting was that DVC is switching from a complete refurbishment every 24 years to just 14 years (with soft refurbishments scheduled every 7 years). This will make the rooms a bit less dated, although it will have a small impact (less than 1%) on dues.
The following 2016 resort soft good refurbishments were announced by Sonya Deese-Byrnes at the Dec 10, 2015 annual meeting. These refurbishments will include lighter colors and additional lighting.(Note: a status update as of June is posted here)
