DVC Point Charts for 2018

Posted by | No Comments » | Share

Disney World’s Star Wars-themed park will debut in 2019, with plans for a similarly themed hotel to open on the grounds as well. Other new additions include the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, which have already opened their doors on the Wilderness Lodge property in Florida.
