    Why are they building a new DVC hotel, when the other half of Pop Century still isn't finished?

    Pop Century Resort doesn't have the green-light yet to continue.

    One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. DVC has a demand now, and in order to keep selling memberships they need to have new properties to sell. Each hotels has a finite number of "points" they can sell at it. SSR is running out, enter AKV. When that sells out, which will be quicker than SSR because it is so much smaller, a new one will be announce...such as Lou's now famous STOL port idea. (Sorry, couldn't help that one )

    It is entrely possible that 3 new DVC's will be completed before Pop is, because the budgets are so totally different. However, I hear Pop is going to get going soon with suites

    Ok, I'm sorry. I wasn't paying attention. I had forgotten what DVC meant. I thought we were talking about another "hotel". I guess I better read before I rant!

    P.S. DVC is Disney Vacation Club, right?
