SOOO excited about joing DVC today!!! (Direct @ SSR) Still have to wait for all the paper work ect, but we already have our first DVC trip scheduled to stay at AKV @ Jambo House in late January. Can't wait!
I grew up in Central Florida and had annual passes to WDW most of my childhood, but my kids (5,3,1) have never been, now that we are in Texas. So I can't wait for them to have the experience, and looking forward to staying on site for the first time as well. We will be staying at the same time as my brother and his family (who we only see every few years, but now both as DVC members hope to change that).

Anyway, just had to shout it about to somebody! =)

Congrats! What did you pay through Disney? Just curious. Did you consider resale?

Thanks again everybody...feelin' the DVC love around here =)

Disney is selling SSR for $99 a point right now. We did consider resale, (it was a tough decision) but decided to get our foot in the door direct, and have all benefits and options available with our first batch of points. I anticipate adding on in the next couple years and intend to do that through resale.

Congratulation and Welcome Home neighbor! I also purchased SSR direct last July, was a better decision for me as a first time DVC owner. Looking forward to my first DVC trip in January at the BCV and then our home resort in June. :banana:

Howdy neighbor, welcome home.

We are from Texas as well and SSR is one of our homes. We were at AKV, Jambo House last January 22-26. It was great. Y'all will love it. We think late January is one of the best times to visit. We will be there this January 21-26 for our first time at BLT. If you are there at that time say hi. We will be easy to find, we will be the ones with the big smiles on our faces:rotfl2:

Exact same dates we will be there. And yes, I've always noticed a shortage on smiles at Disney World, so you should be quite easy to find indeed. :laughing:

We too bought direct at SSR for $99 a point, but one day before you. This was our second contract that we signed, we signed the first one back in September 2010 with our other home resort being BLT. We too wanted to buy direct because of all of the benefits and options available to us, and we were also struggling whether to go resale or not. And as far as addoninitis is concerned, don't worry you will get it and bad :goodvibes....DH is already talking about adding on again sometime next year :cool1:. Congrats and Welcome Home :yay:

Yeah, I think I'm already getting addonitis every time I look at the point charts. Find myself perusing resale sites. =)
