Thumbs up Why are AKL resale points cheaper than some other resorts?

Hello! This is my first post! :-)

My wife and I were about to purchase, last month, 160 AKL points directly from Disney, and finance them to boot. I am so glad that I decided to buy resale instead, so we are now purchasing 250 AKL points, and financing them with a home equity loan at 3% for 24 months. Now we just need to clear ROFR.

Here is my question-- I noticed that older areas, like BCV points, sell for much more than AKL and BWV is in the same ball park. Seems to me that AKL would be worth more, since it is a newer facility and the points don't expire as soon. Is something wrong with AKL? Is it less desirable and that is why it's priced in the high $50s and low $60s per point on the secondary market? I know it's a bit farther away than the other resorts- just wonder what I am missing here. BTW, I understand that points are good anywhere.

One other question-- is it really difficult to get reservations in California and Hawaii if your home resort is in Florida? My wife is a teacher, so we would typically be vacationing in the summer (very flexible in terms of the specific dates), or maybe at Christmas/Easter break. I understand the 11 month/7month thing, but at 7 months what are your chances? Thanks.
