The excellent exchange rate was also a bonus. Good luck

We've no regrets and both wish we'd done it years ago.
We originally took the tour (not at all hard sell) in 2000, when the model rooms were at Boardwalk and they were selling Beach Club. (I think!).
We were not able to commit at that time due due a building project we were starting.

I think thats why we were ok buying from over here. We knew the standard of quality we would get and were very familiar with the Disney resorts.
I don't think I'd buy in to A.N.OTHER company from over here. It was just *** it was Disney, we knew it would all be fine.

Winkster, I think if you contact Disney and register an interest, they will send you the "Dreams" hard back book, which is lovely, and the DVD which might give you a further insight.

Certainly, do the tour when you are next at WDW. I promise you that there is NO HARD SELL and I think everyone will tell you the same.

It's all sounding very encouraging - thanks again!

One other question that I can't seem to find much into about...

Is there anywhere I can find details of the non-Disney resorts around the world? The official DVC site has brief info on some of the locations and a few of the hotels but I was wondering how many points are needed to stay outside of Disney.

Much as I'd love to go to WDW every year, I'm sure at some point we'd feel like trying somewhere else so it'd be good to have a few examples of how far our points could stretch elsewhere.
Time to be movin' along

When you register an interest in DVC they will send you out a book that will explain all the different places you can stay other than Disney.
