I know what you mean, all these park ticket, free food and gift card offers will definately finish once things pick up economy wise. Plus resales are available at the moment for rock bottom price's. Weve book to go to AKL next year so I thin kwe will take the tour and see if DVC is for us

As a UK based buyer you would still be able to get the referral discount (it might be another couple of $ per point so it's worth having) but the referrer won't get anything if they are from the UK except the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from helping out a fellow Diser

Thanks for the tip loadsapixiedust, any discount is a good discount in my book

The other thing i am having problems getting my head around is the whole home resort idea, does this mean that this is the resort we would always be staying at?
We always bank and borrow points as we seem to being going every 2 years at the moment.

A big thing to take into consideration is when you buy your points... we have a november use year and it seems to make going in the middle of the summer more tricky... this year we wanted to go in september but had to wait for our use year to come around so that we could borrow the points from the next year...

You don't always have to stay at your home resort, but if you want to travel during low points time it is likely that you will have difficulty getting a reservation for a different resort... We thought being slow season would mean it was easier to get a reservation, but of course that's when DVC is most used - most time for the least points! If you want to stay elsewhere you may need to go during busier times and therefore need more points!

You can book at the 11 month window and borrow points then regardless of use year. As long as the points would be valid in your account at the date of travel. in your case you could have booked in October and borrow the following years points at that point.

There are 8 use years February, March, April, June, August, September, October & December. You want to choose a month just before you usually travel.

It wasn't anything to do with the 11 month window, it was needing to borrow points from the following year... so that we could use points from all 3 years... we had a few left from the year before, wanted to use all of this years and borrow some from the following year! Choosing the month prior to your normal travel time was the point I tried (unsuccessfully to make) LOL I know what I meant, so glad you were here to put it into English everyone else could understand!
