I agree about securing your financing here. If the dollar takes a tumble again it will up your overall costs.

Good Luck

I am really interested in a DVC membership but I am having a hard time understanding all this "points" stuff. I understand that you purchase the membership for a flat rate (i think $15,000 around) but then do you have to buy points every year? How many points do you get with the $15,000? Help!!!

IcePrincess467 I suggest you read through the FAQ on wdwinfo, http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-vacation-club/faq.shtml, and if you still have questions post something on the DVC Operations board. You will get a wider array of opinions posting there.

Another Canadian DVC owner checking in. I bought 200 VWL points last year, and have stayed at VWL and SSR so far. I'm really looking forward to trying the AKL! Love that place!

DVC was the best thing we could have ever done and as stated before the only regret is not doing it sooner.

UY for DVC Points

I'm really sorry to ask as this may be a stupid question. I'm really close to pulling the trigger on a DVC resort. My question revolves around the month I should be looking for. Normally we go off season, however my 4 yr old will start school so it's almost gauranteed I'll need to book peak periods. If I wanted to go lets say March should I purchase April points as I can book the home resort 11 monts prior. I have done all the reading and understand how everything works for the exception of this one point. I just want to be sure before I make this commitment.

Thanks

We have a Feb use year and we travel in early Dec each year and just take the ids out of school to go we always tend to go the first couple weeks of Dec it is usualy pretty great in the weather department and the crowds tend to be quite low also. Even with kids in school there is no way in hell I would change the time of year we travel to Disney school be damned the kids are coming on holidays with us LOL.

Actually, when you book at 11 months you have to have points that will be useable at the time of travel. The points don't have to be current at booking time. So, you can get any UY that works for you.

We have an Aug UY because our two most likely disney times are late Aug or Dec/Jan. By having an Aug UY the points are brand new for our first attempted trip and still fully bankable if we also miss the second window in a given year.

Thus, my advice would be to figure out your most likely travel times and make some calculations around banking. If you think you'll probably travel during March Break but might travel during the Christmas/New Year's break, then I'd recommend a Dec UY. If you think you'll probably travel during March Break but might travel in the summer then I'd recommend a March UY.

Another Canadian DVCer here. We're from Manitoba & can only buy into or add-on while we're there. We have 15- points at VWL & have added on 15- points at SSR. We really like the flwxibilty of DVC. We have stayed at VB & HHI and Grand Californian at DL - all things we would never have done without DVC

Add me to the list. Bought SSR in October 2006. Have just come back from OKW, will be at SSR in December. Still trying not to catch addonitis. We've just inherited a cottage which needs loads of work - certainly an antidote for addonitis

Can a potential (honest ) DVC er jump on board? I AM CANADIAN
Just waiting for that little piece of land in Peterborough to sell so I can buy a small contract 110 points at OKW.
Then I'll drive everyone nuts with all my questions

Looking like 28 DVC members so far, and a few who are close. I'm looking at adding on already and I haven't been a member for a month!!! Lets hope the tax refund is large.
