For DVC members there is a weekly event at Atlantic Dance Hall called Welcome Home Wednesday.
Since its been a very long time since I’ve been, Shelley, Kelly and I decided to go and check it out.
You are asked to show your DVC member ID when you enter and you are given a ticket to fill out, on the ticket is a snack ticket that you can tear off easily.
In the small entrance many perks are featured such as your discounts on Sammy Duval’s Water Centre and Disney Florist and Owners locker. After you enter the snacks and lemonade are over at the corner bar for you to get.
The event started with a slinky game, one of the contestants was named Walt so there were many disney jokes. Everyone who played received a pin, Then after there was a feature on membership perks. One of the audience was sad that most of the perks information has gone online*, but we were reminded that DVC members can get restaurant savings when they join Tables In Wonderland.
The next game was that you had to guess the answer that your partner would guess. Kelly and Shelley volunteered to play, unfortunately they didn’t win but everyone got a pin.
The next game was building a snowman with golf balls, one contestant got very close, again both people won a pin.
The final game is that you had to try and get a cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands, one person won, again both contestants got a pin.
The last giveaways they used a basket to pick winners of prizes, the prizes were:
- A mug with flowers from the Disney Florist
- A gift certificate to Sammy Duval’s for parasailing
- A gift certificate to Senses Spa
- A year membership Owner’s Locker
- A ride along at the Richard Petty Speedway
After that the event was over, you were given an Animal Kingdom Lodge Hat.
We had a lot of fun playing games and laughing! Welcome Home Wednesday is a great way to spend some time outside of the park with fellow Disney Vacation Club Members.
