View Full Version : Who Would Trade Resorts...?????

03-13-2002, 01:34 PM
Boring........I love Beach Club, BUT it seems that's all we are talking about!

Let's kick it up a notch!!

Who would trade resorts? Or keep the DVC resort you already have?

Rule one: All points must be at ONE resort. (can't own at TWO resorts)

Rule Two: HAVE FUN!!!! BE NICE!!!!
So would you trade your points at OKW for Beach Club?, etc, etc.

OH!!!! You can trade points w/ NO COSTS!!!! Even Trade, No closing costs, etc....This is just for the fun of it!

Ok, let the trading begin!!!!

P.S. I would trade all of my OKW points for Boardwalk, I personally like the action and the pool better.D

but I would trade all our Hilton Head points for OKW. The resort seems so laid back and relaxing not to mention the dues are the lowest and the resort units have the lowest point requirement. You can walk or boat to Downtown Disney and I think probably even stay at OKW and not feel like you have to go to the parks and finally, I know its almost unheard of, but I actually like not having a slide at the pool. We usually spend all our Beach Club pool time at the quiet pool so that would be another advantage for us.

This is a fun thread! Now if it could only come true!

Being only 20, I am thankful to be in DVC at all. :) However, if given the choice I would trade my 100 BCV points and 160 VWL points for 260 BWV points in a heartbeat!! ;) I just love that place!

03-13-2002, 03:09 PM
This is a fun post! I would trade our 100 OKW add on points to BWV's in a minute!!! That would give us 250 at BWV's & that's the perfect number for us (I also prefer the BW location)

03-13-2002, 03:24 PM
Don't tell my husband . . .
but I would trade all our Hilton Head points for OKW.

Ok, I won't tell, but it will cost you.........

I'll take 50 points, and I promise you that you will never hear from me again.......( Just joking!!!. I have to add that, because someone will think I mean it!!)

03-13-2002, 03:46 PM
Sorry, wouldn't trade...but I want more! Hmmm...about 150 at each WDW DVC would work....200 would be better. LOL. I really think all the resorts have their advantages.

I wouldn't trade my BCV points for anything as of right now! If anyone out there doesn't want any of their points anymore and doesn't feel like deal with the hassle of re-selling them, I will sacrafice and take them off your hands. :) ;) :) ;)

03-13-2002, 03:54 PM
I am very happy that they built in the order they did. OKW was the only choice in '92, had BWV been built first, I might have bought there. I am very happy to have all my points at OKW.

I am also happy to have all the options that we have available, yes, even VB and HH.

03-13-2002, 03:56 PM
I would trade my 300 points at the VWL for BWV. But if the DVC ever opens "Grand Floridian Villas", I'd take that in a heartbeat!

03-13-2002, 03:58 PM
DON'T TAKE MY POINTS!!! :mad: ;) :D BWV's and wouldn't trade them for anything. We bought into DVC prior to finding these boards so we were basically blind (well nearsighted ;) and didn't know we would have options but are so glad we did. There is nothing like people watching at the Villas after stopping off at the bakery. :D :cool:

We already have 250 BWV points and I wouldn't trade for twice the points somewhere else (well, maybe for TWICE the points, I would:D). The other DVC resorts look and sound nice, but so far we've only wanted to stay at our home.

I also think 250 at BWV is the perfect number for us and we, too, prefer the BW location. And it IS a fun post!

03-13-2002, 05:13 PM
I would keep what I have (OKW-300 VB-110). I like all the options of DVC. But I also like having the 11 month window at VB when I want it:D Its like having the best of both "onsite at WDW and oceanfront"..........;)

P.S. Rich, thanks for the "positive" feedback for VB and HH.:D :D

03-13-2002, 05:21 PM
I had fun thinking about this one. I have 225 BWV and 125 BCV points. If I could trade, I'd trade the BCV points for all BWV. Then I'd have all 350 points in one place. While I'm excited to try out BCV soon, I have to get used to working with point totals from two different places. Pretty pitiful, huh? I think I have "point planning disorder" or something. ;)

03-13-2002, 05:29 PM
How's this for an idea of a trade:
I would love to trade all of my 410 points with a June use year at OKW for the same points with a February or March use year. We seem to always wish we could go in April or May!!!

03-13-2002, 05:37 PM

That wasn't one of the options that we had.......stick to the "program".....:D :D :D

03-13-2002, 06:05 PM
I sure see a lot of people who want to trade for BWV points.



03-13-2002, 07:00 PM
I also agree that I would never trade my BWV points for anything!!:D

Just the thought of staying at the Boardwalk was my dream for years and then I made my dream come true by becoming at Boardwalk members just before they sold out!!

We just added on at the BCV, so we will have to see if we would ever be willing to trade thouse for anything, but I cannot imagine we ever would:D :) Our first stay at BCV will be in September, so we will see:)

03-13-2002, 07:08 PM
I would NOT trade my BWV points, I would however trade my OKW add on for more BWV. I love the look of BCV, but staying within the guidelines of this post, I would take all my points at BWV's, because if I could only stay in ONE place, my first choice remains BWV.( I do hope to trade into BCV and VWL at some time.)

03-13-2002, 07:22 PM
Ok, by the time I finished reading all the posts, I forgot about the "only points at one resort" rule!!:)

So, I would not trade my Boardwalk points for anything!!!
:) :D

03-13-2002, 07:37 PM
Totally no regrets:

Very happy with being HH and OKW owners. We definately look forward to staying at ALL, and appreciate the advantages each has ... but owning at HH and OKW fits us very well.

Is that boring?

We are totally content with having all our points at VWL. :D

All my points, so far are at BWV and I would definitely not trade them.

03-13-2002, 08:07 PM
We are very content having all our points at OKW!!! When my DD' s become teenagers then it may be different. For now I am a happy OKW'er!!

03-13-2002, 08:15 PM
Well, even though I haven't stayed there yet I wouldn't trade my VWL points for anything. We fell in love with the place when we toured. I do however plan to stay at the Boardwalk at least once just so my son can do the scary clown slide. He has wanted to for a long time.

Travelbug, if you've got it, I think I've got it too... now that I really think about it, I'm sure LOTS of us have it :D

03-13-2002, 08:37 PM
We are in the process of doing this exact thing! It seemed like a good time to buy so I convinced my DH to buy another BWV resale. We will be selling our OKW points as soon as the deal goes through.
Now if only there really were no closing costs. Oh well. I'm too happy to complain!

Nope, wouldn't trade our 350 OKW points..love the place. We also have our 100 BWV points that we enjoy too...but I would trade those for HH or OKW if I had the opportunity!

03-13-2002, 09:25 PM
I would trade our Okw points for BW. in a minute. We own a lot of points at the BW, and a 150 pt add on at the Okw. It's not as easy as it used to be to get the BW at the 7 month window anymore. We're hoping with the opening of the BCV it will open up the BW again for our okw points. We usually make the ressies at the Okw for friends at the 11 month window, and switch them to the BW at the 7 month window for the GV. We'll use our okw (lower dues) points to stay in the BW GV, but that's another thread.:rolleyes: We have several rooms at the BW in Nov and were thinking about trying to switch them over to the BCV at the 7 month window, but then thought how much our kids love the BW community hall.
We still want to try the WLV, VB and BCV in the future. Does anyone know if the health club at the WLV and BCV are free to the members staying there?

03-13-2002, 09:39 PM
Well, no sense dreaming, you can do it!!!
As previous Vero and BWV owners, we sold our BWV add-on points and bought about 3 times the amount at BCV.

So, we're Vero and BCV owners now.

See you at the Ocean, or Storm Along Bay.....

03-14-2002, 09:03 AM
I know you aren't supposed to be trading if you own at two resorts , but............
I'd trade our 230 BWV and 100 VB for 330 at WLV any time:D

03-14-2002, 09:44 AM
I wouldn't trade for the world. I think BWV point schedule was a DVC Mistake. I can almost always get SV at my 11 month window saving points. This is just icing on the BWV cake. I love the theme and beauty of BWV not to mention LOCATION!

03-14-2002, 10:11 AM
Well, personally I am ecstatically happy to have VWL as our home. Before BCV came along, I used to wish we could buy some BWV points, but now we are going to do an add-on at BCV, and I couldn't be happier! We'll have the fantastic location of being near the boardwalk, and be able to take DS to SAB. In the real world, maybe some day in the distant future we'll be able to do an add-on at BWV, I'd still like to, but now that's less urgent.

Oh, wait, we were supposed to pick just one resort? Mmmmmm, well then I'd have to stick with VWL - we all just fell IN LOVE with it when we visited back in January. And eating at Whispering Canyon with our 19 mo was some of the most fun I've ever had!

:bounce: :bounce:

03-14-2002, 10:19 AM
We are happy BWV and VWL owners. Now just want more VWL points.


03-14-2002, 06:33 PM
I wouldn't trade - I love the BW!

03-14-2002, 09:28 PM
My OKW and VWL points are keepers. We like the more "laid back" resorts.:)

03-14-2002, 10:20 PM
I personally wouldn't trade our VWL points for any other points. I love VWL.

I don't want to speak for my dh, but he better not want trade our VWL points either!!!!!!!!!!!!

03-15-2002, 11:18 AM
Will NOT trade our OKW & HH points for any other resort. Love it there.

03-15-2002, 05:44 PM
OKW suits us perfectly. No trades from us. Besides the 7 month window works well for us since we go in the off=season.

03-15-2002, 08:37 PM

There is no place like Home.

03-15-2002, 11:33 PM
We have BWV points and love the place, wouldn't swap them for anything. Will buy more at BCV soon, but wish it was the BWV to keep it simpler.:) :)
