As to the initial investment. Would I be investing that in something else. Probably not. I'd be dropping it on a Disney cruise or an Adventures by Disney. So, a long term vacation possibility or a one time adventure or two cruises.

The dues I am not paying will pay down the capital investment in 4 to 5 years. I think that rentals in the $10 per point will pay that off even with increases in dues. After that its a wash. I'll either use them or rent them because my personal expenses should be less.
I'm sure it sounds all well and good and not going to dispute numbers with you. But ask yourself two questions. First, do you have or know someone who is going to be renting from you on a regular (yearly) basis? If not, then are you prepared to do the legwork and take the risk of someone causing damage to the room while renting from you? Second, what if in 3 years Disney does identify you as a commercial renter? What then?

Just my 2 cents, but I think there are safer investments that involve some risk to get a better return. It's a big gamble to "invest" in a prepaid vacation system.
