My wife and bought 200 points at the Beach Club Villas last August, and just returned from our first DVC stay this past Saturday. We stayed 7 nights at BCV and then moved to OKW for the last four nights. We enjoyed both resorts immensely, and decided to add 100 points at BCV while it's still available. Decided to forfeit the first point allocation to get $74 Magical Beginnings price. Our use year is February, and we already have a reservation for Xmas through New Years booked, so it wasn't a great sacrifice. Our dilemna was whether to wait and buy a contract at Saratoga Springs when it is available, but we decided not to wait. We loved BCV so much, especially the easy access to Epcot, MGM, and the Boardwalk. Another factor was the "rumor" that Saratoga Springs will be close to $100 a point (perhaps with a 50 year contract). Maybe we'll buy at SS too (one can dream, can't one?), but we decided to do the add-on while we were there. Can't wait to go back in December, and we'll soon be booking two studios for next June - one for us and one for our son, daughter-in-law, grandson and grandaughter.
