President's Message

September 1, 2021

My Fellow Owners,

As the summer draws to a close, I am pleased to report on several changes underway at our Resort. Last year I wrote about COVID and the new policies and procedures introduced to make our Resort safe for our owners, guests, and staff. These past 6 months have demonstrated the success of those efforts as the Resort has been packed full of happy families.

Going forward, our management team has identified and tracked a change in guest behavior which started several years ago and needs to be addressed. We found that owners, exchangers, and guests visiting our Resort were spending more and more time on property using the resort amenities. Owner feedback indicated that our 2010 amenities renovation made the Resort a place where families could relax and have fun all day. Due to ever-increasing costs, families are spending fewer (but longer) days at the attractions to get the most experience for their money, and they are spending more days at the Resort, taking advantage of the amenities, and resting their feet and their wallets. This shift put pressure on the existing amenities and infrastructure. It was not uncommon for all the pool lounge chairs to be taken or for people to wait over an hour for food. We need to expand to meet the increasing demand. Over the fall 2021/winter 2022 season, we will be adding more seating to our main pool deck, additional activities and features, a larger food and beverage operation with more options, and expanded entertainment areas will also be added. We believe these changes will improve the Resort experience for those coming to FantasyWorld and increase exchange value for those Owners travelling elsewhere.

Each year, Owners ask the board of directors for assistance in ending their timeshare ownership early. As most Owners are already aware, 2030 is scheduled to be the last year of our timeshare. After 2021's vacations are complete, annual Owners will have only 9 vacations left (odd-year biennial Owners will have 4 left, and even-year biennial Owners will have 5 left).
Most Owners are already familiar with our Wind Down Plan, which allows Owners in good standing to pay a portion of the future maintenance fees to end their timeshare ownership early without their exit creating a burden on the remaining Owners. We are introducing a new program as an option to the Wind Down Plan. We call it the Speed Up Plan. Beginning in 2022, we have limited opportunities for Owners to use their remaining vacations faster and thus end their ownership sooner. It works like this: An Owner can pay the maintenance fees for their future weeks at the current rate and then use those weeks at any time within the next two years (based on ownership season and availability, as always, first-come, first-served).
For example, an even-year biennial Owner has 5 vacations left through 2030. That Owner could pay 5 weeks of maintenance fees at the current rate ($1,000.91 per week), then book those 5 weeks in 2022 or 2023 and be done with this timeshare forever. These 5 reservations could be a single townhome for 5 weeks in a row (consecutive usage) or an Owner can choose to reserve up to 2 townhomes for the same week or weeks (overlapping usage). Reservations can also be deposited with the exchange provider of the Owner's choice if that is preferred. The logistics of the Speed Up Plan are complex, so availability is limited and will be first-come, first-served.

We know that neither Wind Down nor Speed Up are perfect solutions for every Owner wishing to exit early, but these plans are the best we can do to be fair to the Owners wishing to exit early and fair to the Owners wishing to continue their ownership as originally agreed.

Warmest Regards

What All Owners Should Know About Reservations

  • ​All reservation requests are confirmed on a first come / first served basis. 
  • The timeshare includes 205 townhomes. 
  • ​The first 205 eligible deed owners who request any specific week are assigned a reservation.
  • ​The 206th and all subsequent owners who request a week will be asked for an alternate selection.
  • The maintenance fee associated with the owner usage must be paid before a reservation can be confirmed.
  • ​Owners are eligible if they are requesting a reservation within their season of ownership (owners of Platinum deeds requesting Platinum season weeks, or owners of Gold deeds requesting Gold season weeks).
  • ​Every owner needs a specific reservation at the resort to make use of their ownership.
  • ​Owners wishing to exchange their reservation with an exchange provider, must first obtain a confirmed reservation from the resort and provide the details of the reservation to their exchange provider. The reservation is the medium of exchange providers. This applies to same year exchange and to owners wishing to bank their usage for a future year. Owners are encouraged to contact their exchange provider as soon as they know their plan is to deposit and they have their confirmation email.
  • ​Owners may pay an amount equal to the prior years maintenance fee if they want to confirm a reservation before the amount of the maintenance fee is established for the year (late summer or early fall; at the annual meeting). Any difference will be bill when the final amounts are established.

Notice of Potential Scam!

Fellow Owners, 

Be Alert! 

We have gotten reports from owners that they have been contacted by somebody claiming to be with “Festiva” (which is probably not accurate) which “owns the Resort” (which is definitely not accurate). This person is offering to sell “Rental Protection” to our fellow owners. Owners are asked to pay this person $1,195. In return for that payment, the owners’ week as well as two additional “getaway weeks” will allegedly be rented in the owners’ name. Supposedly, the proceeds from the rental of the 3 weeks (totaling $13,000) will then be paid to the owner. 

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If we could turn a maintenance fee plus $1,195 into $13,000 we’d all be rich. 

You own the Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld Resort, not Festiva nor any other developer. We do not believe the people contacting our owners with this offer are actually associated with Festiva. We don’t know who they are. We don’t know anything about “getaway weeks,” nobody gets 3 weeks for 1 maintenance fee. These people do not represent us. We did not sell or give anybody your phone numbers. There are lots of scams out there. 


Warmest Regards 

Jeff Weinland, President

on behalf of the Board of Directors and Management Team of Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld Time-Share Owners Association Inc.

Notice of Authorization
for Non Judicial Foreclosure

If a timeshare owner fails to make timely payments of timeshare plan common expenses, ad valorem taxes, or special assessments, an assessment lien against the timeshare owner’s timeshare interest may be foreclosed in accordance with a judicial foreclosure procedure or a trustee foreclosure procedure, either of which may result in the loss of the timeshare owner’s timeshare interest. If the managing entity initiates a trustee foreclosure procedure, the timeshare owner shall have the option to object pursuant to Florida law, and in such event the managing entity may thereafter proceed only by filing a judicial foreclosure action.

COVID-19 Update


The FantasyWorld Resort proudly complies with its governing documents, state and local health regulations, as well as federal ADA regulations.
We all love our furry friends but to comply with the rules that govern us and to ensure the safety of guests and pets.


Except for Service Animals

“Service Animal” means any ADA recognized animal that is trained to do work or
perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability.


Unless the service provided by the animal is apparent, our agents will ask:
– Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
– What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

Misrepresenting a Service Animal is a violation of Florida Statute 413.08


ADA requires your Service Animal be harnessed, leashed, or otherwise tethered unless your disability or the work it does prevents the use of these tools. in that case, the Service Animal must be under control through other means such as voice commands or signals. If the Service Animal is out of control and you do not take effective action to control it, or if the Service Animal is not housebroken, we can require that it be removed from the premises. You are responsible for any damage caused by your service animal.

Using your Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld Reservation to Exchange to another resort or trading for another type of vacation experience.

The first step in the exchange process is to pay your maintenance fees to your home resort and request a specific reservation from that home resort. A confirmed specific reservation is the medium of exchange with exchange providers.

The exchange provider will need the check-in date, check-out date, confirmation number, and name of your home resort to complete the deposit or exchange process. All of this information is provided in the confirmation email from your home resort. 

All other aspects of the deposit/exchange are functions of the exchange provider. 

Exchange into Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld Resort

Owners from other resorts wishing to exchange into Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld are welcome to speak to their exchange provider about availability at our resort. Commonly, Interval International and DAE Live have the most of our inventory available, but our owners may use any exchange provider of their choosing, so it is possible to find availability from other sources. 

Our resort also operates a transient rental program for other units in the community which are not part of the timeshare plan. 

Visit for information about transient rentals.
