Just purchased first contract and had to relate a side effect

My wife and I have looked at DVC 3 times with Disney on different trips and have always backed out. We finally bought a resale last month and thought I would relate a funny effect of owning. Suddenly, when we used to not be able to get the exteneded family to go, we now don't have enough points!
We found a contract we wanted with banked points and had to use them by 02/13. Our daughter is in college so we could only go at christmas break (Twist my arm). We scheduled our trip and sent emails to the rest of the family as we always do (I think this is about #18 for my wife and I). 2 weeks later we now have 15 confirmed in our . I have heard of DVC making you take vacations but I never thought of it making other people take vacations. Anyway couldn't be happier with our purchase. We bought just for this reason; to spend time with the family. Never thought it would work so well. As a matter of fact we looking for a second contract already. Need a 100 at Boardwalk with feb UY if anyone knows of anything similar let me know

Glad that all worked out for you, have a great trip. You know, now that you bring it up, I don't think I've ever mentioned our DVC membership to extended family.

Sound great! Last November we traveled to WDW with 21 family members all on our points. In theory it was a great idea but I don't believe we will make that attempt again.

I feel for you!! We have this affliction of needing to stay in a one-bedroom with a king-sized bed, even it it's just me and DH. Staying in one just once, is all it took!!

Have a great time! We have offered a "free bedroom" to our extended family and no one has accepted yet. The family that always wants to go owns DVC too!

My wife and I have 4 kids, 3 of them out of the house. They have no problem sucking up all of the points we have and are always asking when we're gonna buy some more! Unfortunately, that doesn't leave any points for brothers or sisters families, nieces or nephews, etc.

Let 'em buy their own points!

We do a family trip about EOY with between 25 & 40 people. I do hope it works out, but somehow I sense a disaster in the making. I'm guessing many of those interested are assuming free accommodations. We've even seen reports her on DIS of members who invited others that were upset when they didn't get free tickets or free meals as well. You know your family so I'm sure you know how they tend to act, just don't assume they'll do better than usual because it's Disney and you were nice enough to invite them. I'm hoping I'm wrong and you have a great trip.

What a happy original post. Congratulations! If your extended family aren't Disney veterans, I would suggest being clear about what they can expect--costs, time, meals, schedules, etc. My DBIL teases me about being a bit militant about our first trip with him, but it hasn't deterred him from coming on other trips. It took awhile before he went off by himself though, and he is over 50!

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us
