My hubby and I are also looking into a DVC membership. We got our information package. But then also kept getting phone calls from a very -pushy- sales person. I am not saying that it's not "their job" to try and push sales. But this guy was a little over bearing.

We are still going to consider a membership. But I am having trouble understand all the different terms and points system. I think we might take the tour while we are at the MK this year.

I don't see too many westerners on here so I was excited to see your post.

I own at the Grand Californian and am sooooo glad that I do. I'd been looking at DVC for years but had been told to buy where I plan to vacation and now I see why. Let me explain. If VGC is your home resort, you can make reservations 11 months before your check in date. If your home resort is somewhere else, then you can't make reservations until 7 months out. This is a big deal because during peak times, VGC likely won't have any available space. There are less than 100 villas at VGC compared to over 1000, or something, in Orlando.

As for the 160 points, it will depend on how often you plan on going. I only have 125 but it's enough for us. If we only go every 3 years, with banking and borrowing, that gives us 375 points to play with. If you were to do the same, you'd have 480 points every three years. That would get you six nights in a two bedroom villa, in July or August.

Hope this helps.

London ON

[QUOTE=4stroke;43192108]OP:

Please add DW and myself as newest DVC Canadians!!

We bought 160 pts at BLT.

We've been to Disney enough in the last few years to realize that we intend to spend a good amount of money with the mouse over the next fifty. Why not pay it all now, and get it over with??? =)

First DVC trip in January at BLT.

I suppose I need to change my signature now to reflect our DVC-ness.

Standby for that!!

4Stroke.


Hi 4Stroke
I am in London ON too. Do you know if we do meetups in the city somewhere?
Cheers

Hi all we are maybe not the newest Canadian DVC members, but just recently found the Canadian forum. We bought into Saratoga Springs back in May and our first trip will be over New Year’s this year. We haven’t been to Disney since our Honey Moon, but now that we have a soon to be five year old and a two year old we figured DVC was a good idea.

Hello in particular to Disney180 and 4Stroke as we are Londers as well.

When DW and I bought into DVC in 2009, we had looked at things for awhile previously (online research mainly), but also waited until doing the tour when we were at WDW. Even then, we didn't immediately take the plunge, but waited until a few days later when we were on a Disney Cruise. Then we bought in to take advantage of the great incentives offered.

Hello Everyone,

I've been away from the boards for awhile and apologize for not updating this list sooner.

Everyone should be on the list on the first post on page 1 now!

Please check the list and if you are missing, I once again apologize but post again and I will add you to the list. My plan is to check-in at least once a week, I promise!

Shayne

As my avatar suggests we bought at OKW in 2012, and are soon going for the 1st time as DVC members. We later also boughtat HHI and will be going for the spring break.

There are likely other DVC owners in the greater Montreal, maybe enough to start a club and meet in person once in a while!
