We are much like you in that we like to "mix it up", and we are planning on trying them all. So far we have tried BCV, OKW, SSR, AKV (JH), HHI, VBR, and of course our home resort BLT. We will be trying VGC in January.

We have enjoyed them all and they were all very nice, however logistically there are some that we do not have a desire to return to. OKW, SSR, and AKV are just too far from the parks unless we have a rental car, and we usually do not rent one. We do want to try AKV (KV) however. If we drove to Disney, I do not believe we would care as much.

Currently there is no DVC property at WDW that we feel like we HAVE to stay at in order to have a magical vacation. So buying at SSR made the most sense for us as 1) lower PP buy in, 2) stable MFs and 3) relatively long expiry date.

With a young family, I anticipate that our preferences will change over time. We'll stay at AKV while the kids are little. When they get a bit older, we may prefer BCV for the pool or BLT for the proximity to MK. When they're teens, we may prefer SSR or OKV for DD. And when the kids are grown, my wife and I may prefer BWV or BCV for Epcot (our favourite park). I'm sure that we'll make a trip to Hawaii or California sometime as well. So "buy where you want to stay" doesn't apply to us as where we want to stay will change with time. Also, my wife and I like seeing different sights so staying at different DVC resorts was a key selling feature for us.

Please show your support for GKTW!
