Probably because when you buy direct, you only have to put up a few hundred dollars and they will give you several weeks to pay the rest of closing. But your points are immediately credited. So, you could use all your points in those few weeks and then just give up the contract. The initial few hundred dollars will be significantlly cheaper than rack rate, renting points etc. Disney now knows you are a risk.

I could understand how something like this could happen.

To clarify, that was never our intention, and the amount of our payments did pretty much pay for a 210 point contract with Disney....they were just spread out through various contracts. Again, i know we were in the wrong when all was said and done, but it wasn't our intention to score a quick deal using points like that mentioned above. I would have hoped Disney would have seen our record to realize that. What they told us is their stance on the situation...we'll move on and do what we can.

Thank you for your sentiments...they are truly appreciated. Despite Disney's decision here, we still feel owning DVC to be a good thing for our family. We'll buy resale when we can, and go from there.

Thank you for the Positive thoughts!

1. Addionitis may be fun, but can create problems if you buy too much too soon. ( i know many feel that financing timeshares are not good. I do agree with this now...but i learned the hard way)

2. If you do turn in your contract, Disney will never work with you again unless you find other financing options.

3. If you fall into difficult times and you believe that you may later wish to join DVC direct, do everything possible to sell the contract, not give it back.

So, We do have money saved, and figured we'll buy out 50-75 point contracts over time till we have what we need. So, it was a strong lesson for us, and i hope it can benefit someone out there too
All good warnings to add to a number of others. IMO, they did you a favor by refusing to finance because you can buy resale for about what it'd cost retail to pay half (depending on specifics of course). And you lose nothing of value going resale either now or in the future unless they come up with a VIP program that affects you directly, which I doubt they will. DVC is to use for DVC resorts, EVERYTHING else is a poor situation to buy for.
