if you stay at a DVC resort through an RCI trade, there is a $95 fee to cover "transportation," i believe.

since you are staying at a disney resort, there is no other charge for parking (at the hotel or parks). use of the fitness room is free. internet used to be $10 a day but it's free at the moment (no telling if that will change). there are other activities that have a charge (like arts and crafts activities for kids - here is a link to an example - but many activities are free.

if you stay at the swan or dolphin hotel -onsite but not owned by disney - there is a mandatory $12 resort fee per day for access to the fitness room, local calls and internet access and a daily parking fee of $11+tax.

If you are going through RCI on trade there is a$95 fee. I am not sure what type of activities there are at the resorts.

Thank you for the replies.

chalee, the example is very helpful but what is a "Bead" activity?

Is there a complimentary weekly gathering for all guests that would offer something like wine & cheese?

I'm asking to compare what our resorts offer to other systems of comparable quality.

Thank you for your help.

it says you are making an african-ish necklace or bracelet...the resort provides the materials so there is a charge. things like the night-vision goggle viewing and culinary tour are free, however. most of the resorts host an outdoor movie night, games at the pool and things like that for free.

no. nothing like that.
