I admit, I've only just started looking into the DVC tonight, but I feel so overwhelmed! Is there a brochure or pamplet I can order that explains everything in full detail? I did look at the faq page, but there are still a zillion things unanswered. Off the top of my head I have these questions, hopefully someone can graciously answer for me. First of all, not sure if you need this, but just incase, we are a family of 7....2ad, 5 kids, so we need a two bedroom.

1. If we bought into the saratoga springs promo going on now and then later bought points at the akw when they open, would I be able to combine the points at one stay? and if so, let's say I want to stay at the akw, would I be able to book 11 months in advance and use the saratoga points at the akw if I use the akw points as well? Even though some of the points are saratoga?

2. I've read that it's better if you're goint to buy more points in the future to buy at other locations rather than only one. Why is that?

3. Does the yearly maintenance fee vary with each resort? If I were to buy points from two different resorts, I have to pay a yearly maintenance fee at each resort right? If the fee is the same at every resort, what is it?

4. Will the amount of points needed for a room ever increase? Will the value of the points decrease?

5, How many years are the points good for?

6. Are there any clauses for when/if they go out of biz or sell the resort or if they can simply revoke the whole point system, refunds if we don't get our full 50 years, etc. (that one is my dh question, lol)

Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out.
