Careful of the DVC bug once you've joined you are always wondering 'where else should I buy or how many more points do I need?"
We're looking at the Re-Sale right now. Some AMAZING deals. It will be March before we actually buy. Honey says we need to wait. We have the holidays around the corner and we both want to upgrade our cars by Dec. Looking to get 150 points to start with.

DVC was my push present after our triplets were born, and we always get excited planning our next trip!! For us, it's an easy way to really guarantee that we get to go on a fun family vacations especially when life sometimes has other plans!


Enjoy DVC! I know that we do!!
Thanks, we can't wait!!

AH-HA! Now the March puzzle has been solved

If it is just the two of you traveling and you usually go Sept/Oct 150 is good. Yes fellow DVCers I will stand firm

There's definitely deals out there especially with the costs per point on the rise. SSR just went up and there's a rumour of BLT going up again. When it's time to buy however do the math between buying on the market vs direct through Disney, with closing costs etc sometimes the price differential is quite small.

I am very excited for you two!

Your right, our DVC agent just emailed us and said BLT is going up to 130 per point. This is why I think ReSale may be better for us. Wifey is still researching it out. Either way, March gives us more time to get through the holidays. I have ANOTHER wedding ahead of me and this one is the big one. Just about every penny I have will go to that one. It's not everyday your first daughter gets married.

I love hearing about happy weddings. My wife and I were married a year ago, and we went to Disney in January for a delayed honeymoon. It was great. We got to walk around the parks wearing "Just Married" buttons. We even got free desserts to congatulate us on our wedding. It was a lot of fun.

I already had a DVC memebership and we have been planning Disney vacations since we started dating.

Best wishes to you both, enjoy Disney again and again!

I love my DVC membership. Be careful of "add-onitis" in the future.

Before I bought into the DVC, we used to (and still do) see the "Heard the best kept Disney Secret?" with pluto looking very suprised. I always said it's because he heard that Goofy was well endowed.

My room-mate has points at AKL and BLT, and I have to say that when we stay at AKL it feels more like a vacation. To be fair we had a Magic Kingdom view at BLT and it was great, but it is soooooo kinetic that I felt less relaxed there. We are talking about when we stay at BLT next that we want a Bay Lake view instead this time.

We REALLY want AKL or WVL. I think we're leaning towards the RESALES's. We've decided to wait till AFTER the daughter gets married in May. I'll feel better about it all. We originally told our DVC gal next fall and in the end, it works best for us. This time next year we should be owners!! I'm a big picture girl. If I KNOW it's a long term goal, I chip away at it. I can wait for it, cuz it's SO worth it!!

Hello Soulmates! Congratulations on your marriage! Glad everything was perfect for the two of you! I was actually at WDW at the same time. I thought I walked past the two of you at Epcot..

Glad to hear your daughter's wedding plans are coming along...we are in the same position...lots of $$ heading out the door for our daughters March wedding! She and her fiance' are honeymooning at WDW. They are using our DVC at Hilton Head and WDW and a few days in Savannah.

We have owned DVC since 1999 and I always tell people that we should have bought sooner. We weighed the options of buying a larger house in Cary or buying DVC...we made the correct choice! Let me know if you have any questions about DVC.

Cindy
