My response is based on the fact that you stayed at Pop Century and will be going to POFQ next time.

I've read a ton of these threads and here is kinda what I've seen as the Common Wisdom:

If you are the type of family who would stay at Values or Moderates and not choose to stay at Deluxe resorts then DVC will not save you money. Period.

If you are looking at Disney trips from a low-cost perspective then staying at All Stars or AoA or POFQ will always beat DVC. Throw in the fact that Disney will give you incentives (free dining, discounted rates) to pay cash for rooms and you will come out ahead staying at Value Resorts or Moderate Resorts.

From a cost perspective DVC will not beat out paying cash for Values/Moderates. Even if you get the best resale deal out there you will not come out ahead.

Now, if you are planning on staying Deluxe in the future then DVC will save you money vs paying cash for Deluxe rooms (if you stay in a studio, if you stay in a 1 bedroom you will not save money). Not a lot of money, but it will save you some.

If you don't look at DVC as a "cost savings" issue and instead as a "way to pay a little bit more to get a much better experience" issue than DVC is a great deal. Because DVC will cost you more than POFQ but you will get so much more. A 1 BR won't save you money vs paying cash for a deluxe hotel room, but you get 700+ Sq feet vs 400 Sq feet for a Monorail Deluxe room. DVC's "value" is the fact that you get more for your dollar once you are already beyond a certain price point.

If you are already set on paying "a lot" for lodging then DVC will work out. If you would be OK with Moderates or Values then DVC will not save you anything.
