Tables in Wonderland

I've just ordered a tables in wonderland card. She took the payment information and advised it would be here in 2-3 weeks but no email address or anything so I don't have any receipt or confirmation of it. Is this correct?

You should have just bought when you arrive in WDW. This is what we always do.
You get the card straight away and it would be valid from that date and not the date today or when you just bought it.

It takes 4 or 5 days and it will arrive by fedex. There is no email confirmation it just turns up.

I bought on 16th May and the card arrived with 30th June 2020 expiry, and it's a proper plastic card.

They are only supposed to sell to AP holders over the phone for this reason, they have no way of verifying DVC membership.

Yes it will be fine. Youll get the card fine. Many buy over the phone, including sole resale buyers. If you dont receive it ring them up and theyll send another. Youve also paid via credit card so you have CCA protection.

Theres actually no statement, T&Cs, caveat etc on the Tables in Wonderland site at all that its direct only, so this is totally unclear. In fact, now its quite the opposite, the old standalone website was removed and the new text was changed compared to before. The site now says show a membership ID OR a card when buying it, and a membership ID is the white card (SK when you are resale only you will see on your DVC site it says you can click to see your membership ID. This text changes if you ever buy direct, to say click here for membership card and then it shows you a blue digital card instead.) So DVC themselves only using the term membership ID in relation to a white card.

So if it wasnt open to resale, why would they say you can show something that only resale members have, to pick it up? That would be false and misleading advertising. Given its on the GB section of the site Im not sure if you could get Trading Stabdards involved, but I bet the ASA would be happy to take it up. Youll also notice on that site there is now also nothing about it being direct members only. Here is the text:

When purchasing in person, please be sure to bring the following:

Disney Vacation Club Members: A valid photo ID and your Disney Vacation Club Membership ID or Card

Here is the website:

disneyworld.disney.go/en...in-wonderland/

Bottom line is its another lucrative item for Disney, $150 is not insubstantial for a card that encourages more spending and only offers a modest discount, such loyalty cards are often given free in the restaurant trade. Ive got one giving me 15% off at my local (very popular) curry house.

I suspect in reality if you went to pick one up resale only, youd find people not adequately trained, who were not even aware of the wording on their own website and what membership ID means, so I agree, you are much better just calling up to save argument at the desk.

Such a pity it's not widely available to use in the Parks for quick service.

We use it at Pitzafari in the AK where we share a pizza for lunch. 99% of the staff have to get a Manager to show them how to apply the discount as it's not just a swipe on the till.

Brilliant for quick service in the Resorts mind

Can you use it at any of the quick service? Ironically I haven't heard of Pizzafari is it worth a trip?
