DVC rules

dvc member guidelines...

for my home resorts BLT & Vero beach I can book 11 months out
for non-home resorts..every other DVC property..I have to wait til 7 months out.

great when I want to stay at BLT..not so great for GCV or Aulani...it just encourages you to buy where you want to stay....

but for us to add on BLT points, they are now @ $165 per point, whereas with resale we paid $45 a point for VB saving $7200......and we can use them just as well as the BLT points...

make sense.....
