The wife and I have been members for almost 10 years. I've seen this discussion a bunch of times before and frankly i don't think you can make the decision strictly on dollars, except for the 'I can't possibly afford to do it at all".
You have to be willing to assign some form of value decision based on the level of accomodations, the amenities offered and the 'feel' that you get from staying at one of the resorts. We were introduced to it when we took a trip with a bunch of cousins, several of whom were founding members and we stayed at OKW, and we fell in love with the place. We were able to afford it thanks to money left by departed parents. As someone mentioned, if you have the disposable income to afford it, or if you can afford the payments on a 'mortgage', its a great thing. But if you have to try and rationalize it based on savings over other comparable, and that's an important word, accomodations it becomes a much tougher sell. When someone asks me about it I always make the 'affordability' issue tops in my discussion.
