Anyone else have any words of wisdom all is appreciated!
The key issue is how often you will go to Hawaii and whether you will need the 11-month booking window to get the room of your choice when you do. The primary reason to buy points at a particular resort is to be able to book there during the 11-month booking window. Presumably there are times when Aulani books up before the 7-month free-for-all window, at least in some room classes. Do you care? If you do not care (much) about the 11-month booking window at Aulani, then you might as well buy a less expensive property. If you do care about the 11-month booking window at Aulani, stick with Aulani.

There's a separate discussion to be had regarding direct versus resale, but I'll leave that sleeping dog alone. For what it's worth, it sounds like for a direct purchase, you got a very nice deal. It's still a lot more than resale, but there's not many Aulani (or VGC) resale contracts available.

We just got off the Magic and joined at the 220 level. Got a $500 onboard account credit, $2700 taken off the cost of the contract and were given points retroactive to this last April.

Did you buy at AKV or Aulani?

AKV.... Hawaii is not enticing to us.

That's got to be a typo, right?? An extra 20 points maybe? If that's right then that's a better deal than resale!!

No they bought SSR for 100.00 a point from Disney they gave them the previous use of points as if the 2010 points were banked

Ok, that makes more sense to me. I thought they were referring to 10 free points for every 100 points purchased that others are talking about. So its basically a one time 200 point gift which isn't to shabby! Thanks for explaining that.

We went on DCL in March and had the OBC which went up depending on how many points you purchased. Like others have said even with the incentives resale is MUCH cheaper. If you have your heart set on direct then it is probably not a bad idea. Certainly would not book a cruise just to purchase points as Disney cruises are not cheap. Good luck with your decision.

We talked to the DVC sales on the Wonder before we bought, but the girl wouldn't give us any information without sitting in a seminar! I did NOT want to waste my crusing time in a timeshare sales pitch. We just waited until we were home, and walked over to the resort.
