Dear OP,
Consider the numbers. I made a spreadsheet and calculated the costs of DVC vs typical 'Good Neighbor' hotels vs regular rooms @ Grand Californian.

I also took into account laundry costs (we come 1-2x/year for 4-5 days), restaurant costs, tax savings.

I projected these costs out to 50 yrs, including a very modest inflation rate. For us, it turned out buying DVC saves a little cash compared to staying at a comparable good neighbor hotel. It saves a lot comparing to a regular room @ the GC.

I also evaluated intangibles such as time saved by being on property, customer service to my family, perks etc that come by owning DVC @ DGC. I also like the flexibility of the DVC system... we used it for a week in Vegas at a very family friendly resort.... no nudity or thugs hanging around. Even choosing from a smaller room for just the 5 of us or getting larger rooms for when family will be staying with us makes it very convenient!

And. frankly speaking, there is no better place to stay than the GC... may as well save some money!

Good luck!
