I have RCI points and have used them for Disney resorts many times. For the same number of points you can get a larger size unit (two bedroom instead of a Disney one bedroom) at a non-Disney resort. Look at the reviews on RCI.com to see which resorts are better than others.

I own both Hilton and DVC, which are RCI resorts. I have exchanged into SSR and VWL. No problems.

Although I own at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Sea World (beautiful resort) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hilton Grand Vacations Club on I-Drive. It is absolutely lovely. The rooms are bigger and nicer than DVC. It is at the very end of I-Drive (ie no I-Drive traffic or headache), and just minutes away from Disney. The Heavenly Bedding is TO DIE FOR. I can't say enough about this excellent resort. Just checked out two weeks ago, and am looking to purchase the bedding for home, it is that good.

Friends like Sheraton Vistana and Bonnet Creek, which is on Disney property. I am just partial to the Hilton.

You'd definitely get more response on your non-DVC resorts question in the "Orlando Hotels and Attractions" forum:

disney resorts book up quickly, so you should probably take SSR if it's available or book something as soon as possible.

sheraton vistana resort is a favorite of mine. recently renovated with a great location near the wdw gate.

the hiltons are reportedly really nice. probably nicer than the DVC units but without the onsite perks.

bonnet creek is in a good location, but you don't get onsite benefits there either.
