As the opportunity to enjoy experiences typically unavailable to the general public have long been among Disney Vacation Club Members’ favorite “extras,” I’m pleased to report that the next such experience is just around the corner and that a limited number of spaces remain available.
Golden Oak, the master-planned, luxury residential community at Walt Disney World Resort, will open its gates to Members and their Guests for a special evening of food, drinks and entertainment on April 12 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
This exclusive Culinary Magic event, presented as part of Membership Magic in 2017, will take place at Markhams’s, the casually elegant restaurant inside Summerhouse (Golden Oak residents’ private clubhouse), where attendees will mix and mingle with other Members while enjoying the music of a string trio, an artful assortment of food and (for guests ages 21 or older with valid ID) an open bar serving beer, wine and cocktails. While menu offerings are subject to change, plans call for the spread to include artisanal cheeses, chilled seafood, a hand-crafted pasta station, a carving station (featuring Black Angus Prime Rib) and a sweet selection of desserts, including Macarons from Amorette’s Patisserie and chocolates from The Ganachery – adding a taste of Disney Springs to the festivities.
The price of $130 per person includes tax, gratuity and roundtrip resort transportation (arranged when making your event reservation) for Members staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort. Reservations are required (unfortunately walk-ins will not be accepted) and are open to Members and either the number of people sharing their Resort accommodations or a maximum party of six (including the Member) for Member families not staying at a resort. Please note that attendees not staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort must provide their own transportation and present a valid driver’s license at the Golden Oak gate to gain admittance.
You should not purchase or add on a real estate interest in a Disney Vacation Club Resort in reliance upon the continued availability, renewal or extension of any Incidental Benefits (“Membership Extras”). Membership Extras are subject to change or termination without notice, may require the payment of a fee, and cannot be combined with other Member discounts, offers or promotions. Membership Extras are not available for ownership interests not purchased directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc. after March 21, 2011, and, effective April 4, 2016, Members who do not purchase an ownership interest directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc. will not have access to other Membership Extras.
