Wish you well in deciding what works for you.

I have a DD that is a senior in HS & DS that is now a freshman in HS. We started going in the summer when DD started HS. My family really misses the prior trips but could never imaging go out of school again. (DD has missed only 2 days of school her entire HS career.) My DH hates Florida in the summer.

Yet, time has flown by. Next year, my DH and I are planning our first adult trip with friends to the F&W festival. My best friend has recently become a grandmother. We are already planning DGS's first WDW trip. As others have said, time changes the stages of planning a DVC vacation.

Sorry to hear that your schedules have made it harder for you to go on your family vacations. The suggestion that I would make is that you consider your ownership over the long term. SSR has 42 years left on it, so to make a decision to sell based on the next 4-6 years might not be the wisest long term move. Look forward to when your kids are out of high school and in college, their schedules will be a lot more open (most of the month of January is a great time for weather and for crowds). If you need the money, then selling might be a good option. But if this is just about the next few years, then I don't think selling is the way to go. I agree with others, look into renting for a few years if you can't use the points. I think in the long term you will be happy that you didn't sell. Good luck with your decision!

If your membership isn't working for you, I see no reason to go to any extraordinary measures to keep from selling it. Sell now and if events change, simply buy in again at some point in the future when the price will, in all likelihood, be significantly lower.

Good luck!

I'll point out that this approach has a cost associated of around 15-20% of the current value. Even with a proportional price reduction but assuming a neutral points accounting, this approach would likely have a real cost in the neighborhood of $1000 or more. It also sounds like they'd like to go but just can't work it out for reasonable options unless they could get HH in summer. Depending on the ages of the kids and realizing they were only targeting EOY already, they would likely only have about 3-4 (6-8 yrs) trips that were affected. The other factor might be if they would want to change home resorts anyway.

But those issues are related to my thinking asking about their Marriott timeshare and addressing finances. Were finances an issue on top of all else, definitely sell. Otherwise it largely comes down to their timeshare (Marriott & II) acumen and options.

If you owned a boatload of points I'd likely suggest you sell at least part but my sense is you're better off keeping and renting a couple of times to see how things go. If you sell SSR, you're likely to only get around $45-50 a point max after fees.
Dean...We own Marriott at Beach Place Towers in Ft Lauderdale. We are a weeks owner who bough resale and belong to II. We bought EOY as well although a two bedroom lockout used to give us 2 weeks but again, because of not having the time to get away, lately we trade a 2 bedroom for a 2 bedroom instead of locking off and getting two trades. Thank so much for taking the time to respond...I think there is a little bit (please don't shoot me) of being Disney'd out. While we love Disney and the memories for our kids, I just wish Disney would change some of the shows and rides to not have it be the same in 10 years.

Depending on the season you own and week you deposit, you may have success trading if you plan in advance, even for HH summer and HI. If you consistently need a 2 BR, I'd deposit a 2 BR. If you don't value owning DVC, I'd definitely sell.

We also try to avoid the FL summer (for us, FL summer = May-Oct). I prefer Disneyland in the summer.

When DS went off to college, DH and I made some trips just to two of us during F&W and Flower and garden and also early Dec when the Christmas decorations were up.

We waited several years to see how things would pan out. We recently sold about 25% of our points because DS can only join us maybe one time a year and DH and I are fine with either a studio or 1br if it's just us. We'll see how the new amount of points work out for us.
