From someone who is thinking of buying ino DVC this year I think a lot of valid points have been raised. Can I just say that for people who love SSR and OKW the UK deal is good and I has taken up this offer for 5 nights at OKW this trip prior to the cruise.However the offer in the UK is only on 2 of the DVC resorts. I presume this is because they are the largest.I cannot see any offers being extended to AKLV BW or the others. Now we all have our favorites and out of the two on offer I prefer OKW by a long shot.
I have also rented points for 3 years now as staying at DVC resorts is cheaper than booking direct through disney UK in the times we have visited and AKL is cheaper renting points. The remainder of our trip doesnt have the offer on so it is a lot cheaper renting from a DVC member even adding the DDP on but if the annual pass is purchased and the TIW is purchased then the DDp doesnt seem that attractive to us.
From comments I have read and as we are buying with the intention to go every year I feel it is a good idea. I know there are monthly dues which will be around £53 a month (based on current exchange rate) for us.
For people looking into buying it is really interesting to read this forum and gives us beginners a good insight into the membership.
We have saved around £900 buy renting points this year.

You can get the DDP free for other resorts as well.

I remember when you used to get free entry into parks for duration of your stay that was an incentive to buy at OLD KEY WEST and for a few years after the launch of DVC in the mid 90's members had this perk which expired approx 1997. Unfortunately when I bought at Boardwalk in 1999 this was not on offer however the credit towards purchase was although I suspect it was built into the price as you need incentives of some description (even Disney and more say now than ever) Would I buy now,no but I have had reasonable value for money even although the annual dues are now expensive and as I paid upfront the worry of meeting high interest charges at the time was a good choice.I am at the time of life where my kids are older that I shall use my points on them or use passport breaks.
