Is It Worth it?
We're considering taking the plunge. We visit Disney every year during Christmas - well, close to every year during Christmas. We decided in 2013/2014 we will visit again for Christmas and NYE, and in 2014 we will visit for Easter.
This brought upon some new questions. My parents have always wanted real estate down south. We're from NY, and would love a place down in Florida. DVC has always been an option. We visit there enough (~once a year) to go through with it.
So it's between DVC, or taking the total plunge and buying a house in Florida. Orlando is a slight option, while other areas within travel distance of Disney are also options.
For people with DVC - how difficult is it to get Christmas? How about Easter? How would you compare DVC vs. owning a house in the area? The downfall is that I don't believe we'd actually live in Orlando or near Disney - just in traveling distance.
23 year old Disney lover. My parents began bringing my sister and me at a very young age and I fell in love with everything Disney.
Next Trip: Christmas
12/24/12 - 1/1/13
3/29/12 - 4/1/12: Wedding for family friend
A Short trip, but a memorable and enjoyable one! Played golf in Disney for the first time! A very non-traditional trip, but a fun one!
12/24/10 - 1/1/11: Christmas
[I] Our Second Christmas. We drove down to Florida. I had a broken foot, so I got everywhere via EMV. My mom got sick, then my sister, then I was sick for NYE. Missed the parks on NYE day, but I champed it out for NYE at DHS [I]
12/24/09 - 1/1/10 Christmas
[I] Our first Christmas spent in Disney. We took Amtrak down (never again). I fought a cold all Christmas, but fought through it to enjoy. [I]
Summer of 2007: We went following my High School graduation. Fun trip but it was scorching hot!
The one or two other times previous to this, but the dates don't stick out in my mind.
