Just DVC.

I can't even use all the points I have with DVC so any other would be a waste.

Voted only DVC, but it really isn't true that I don't need anything else. In the years between the time we first heard of DVC and the time we bought, the period between 1996, and 2003, we bought a vacation home in Cape May NJ. Together these 2 purchases have provided us with many many vacations with family and friends. Not everyone loves Disney and the Jersey Shore just doesn't feel like a vacation to some. DH and I are very fortunate because besides these, we usually take at least one non Disney, Non Jersey vacation every year. We're headed to the Eastern Caribbean in just about a month. The Holy Land is in our sights for next year.

DVC is my first and I like it for what it provides. I am also VERY interested in others but for some reason I'm scared of all the trading/gaming/planning involved with them. Sounds illogical now that I read that, but its true. I read posts by Dean and others and think there is no way I could ever figure it out.

Fort Wilderness Aug 85 started the obsession
Most recent trip AO 2 nights BLT, 3 nights SSR, 3 Nights Dream
This is the trip report that started it all!!

We own DVC and just bought a vacation home in Breckenridge, CO. This is all we will ever need.

The only timeshare we own is DVC, but we also own a vacation home. It is the perfect combo for us. -- Suzanne

i like DVC for onsite at wdw.

i like my other offbrand timeshare for traveling elsewhere. only $1 on ebay and much lower annual dues than 7 nights in a 2BR for DVC. so far i've booked reservations at hilton head (on the ocean, not like the DVC-HHI), las vegas and southern california. it definitely takes some time to learn how it works but the nice folks at TUG helped a lot...

We own 395 at BCV and 200 at VGC, and we also own the highest week possible with Hyatt. We like Hyatt too for the quality of resorts--truly first class and the great trading power with Interval International.

We own DVC and Wyndham in Myrtle Beach, SC. We just purchased the Myrtle Beach re-sale for pennies on the dollar. We are booked for Easter break this year. Hoping it's warm enough to enjoy!

Wyndham uses points like DVC -- only highly inflated. Instead of 154 points, I own 154,000 Wyndham points LOL.

We stayed in a Wyndham once in Williamsburg, VA and enjoyed it. Not happy with their sales practices and the real deal for Wyndham is re-sale.

Disney is the only place all four of us are always willing to go to. We're DVC only. We bought where we wanted to stay.

We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.

VOTED: DVC + another timeshare, or a variety of the above timeshares.
We have, in order of purchase: Worldmark (points); a summer fixed week at SoCal coastal property; a fixed week in South Africa; a half-share at a San Diego ranch property and DVC.

Favorite: Warner Springs Ranch in San Diego, CA.
Reasons: The model has been a cross between timeshare and country-club offering day use of ranch property, equestrian center, golf, pools, tennis courts, lodge, etc. The cosy bungalows are so restful: no televisions, no telephones, no alarm clocks, etc. Nothing better than spending hours on horseback followed by a soak in the hot springs. We have formed many friendships through the ranch and love visiting "most weekends." Seriously, there is no place better!

Next favorite: Worldmark
Reasons: So many locations -- several w/in driving distance of our home in San Diego. Flexible point system with easy-to-use Online Reservation System, generous cancellation policy and reasonable dues. Trades through RCI Weeks, RCI Points, and II. What's not to love?

The fixed week products: my RCI traders!
It is always fun to have a week or two banked with RCI for searching. These have been a blast to own and trade. The SoCal Coastal property also offers day-use of pools, fitness center (etc) in addition to plenty of owner-perks.

DVC: a niche product
Once we conceded that we were willing to travel cross-country each year on our own dime ... DVC was just the right product for our annual IBM conference. That DVC added Treehouses, the Grand Californian and Aulani since our purchase has truly been icing on the cake. Way cool gifts!
