If frequent trading or renting is in your plans, wouldn't owning elsewhere be a better course?

I don't just want to go to other places with my points. I am just very happy to be able to have that possiblity. In fact since getting my points I have stayed at OKW in Jan 2007 and just made ressies for Aug 2008 at SSR. I have also rented my points to help others which I would do again if I am able. I am now trying to convince DH to get more points especially with want Disney is offering right now. Have a great one

Hi from Ottawa! We bought resale at SSR last October. First visit is next month. We are on the waiting list for Hilton Head this summer so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I posted this on the regular board, but want to know all of your opinions on the DVC tour, did you take it or not, did it influence you or not? How long was it, did you have to make an appointment??

Make that 57.

Another Ottawa family here. We bought AKV last July. We are heading down for our first trip home during March Break - (8th -17th March). I can't wait.

I took the tour in March 07 after 7 years of saying that I should.

It sure did, I bought 3 days after the tour!

It took about an hour and a half.

We were at MGM and the Cheerleaders were driving us crazy, we needed a quick exit and the DVC booth guy promised to get us a van to the front of the park in 10min. The tour and our guide were great and the AKV show suite was amazing.

I think the tour was worth the time we lost at the parks, and the fast passes made up for that time anyway.

The only thing I regret is not studying the point charts a little closer, I would've bought a few more points!

Don't forget about me

Add me in. #58 I guess. We have a contract at SSR in 2005 and a small add-on at VAKL. Stayed there when it was AKL and bought ASAP when it became DVC. Going to stay there again in December.

Cheers
Ed

We were in DL in November. Being from Alberta we had 5 and a half days for park time, tour time, make up our minds and sign everything time. We took the tour and always recommend you do so you are making an informed decision. If you cannot fit it in don't buy imo at that time. Did it influence me?....no. We researched for 7 months before we even took the tour so we were confident with our decision by the time we took it. Taking it helped put everything into a visual perspective and allowed us to ask any questions to our guide. We made an appointment and it took approx 2 hours with all our question asking.hth

Are you trying to get on the list twice or just trying to see if I'm paying attention?

Your #10 on my list and the 11th post on this thread.

I can be a little overprotective of my threads, sometimes you just have to let them grow up.
