Thanks for the correction, I always forget about the YC since I look at the YC/BC as one unit.

different advice

I strongly recommend that you only buy enough DVC points to vacation every other year---that way, your upfront outlay, annual fees are much less and you are not locked into DVC every year. We have a timeshare that we bought when our kids were very young. It seemed perfect for us (East Caost beach week in the summer)--now 7 years later, our vacation tastes have changed and I really wish we had it every other year. Same for WDW. We used to go every year, now we like to go on cruises, etc.
With banking and borrowing DVC points, you can still go even 2 years in a row, if you then skip a year. Good luck.
also, I saw reference to 15-20% discount---just making sure you are not referring to cruises---no one gets that. Only discount is for booking another cruise while on board. Elaine

I would do this to . You are asking basic questions . I would get those answers then make your decision .

As referring to the discount I assume you mean the special offers they had in june for the fantasy for like $170 per night for veranda room . I belive that was offered to all dvc members including resale.

Thanks. I suppose I should clarify my comment a little bit. Salespeople have what is called an "objection book" that they use to provide counterarguments to whatever reason for canceling you give. It is literally a binder with tabs where each tab indicates a potential objection. Phone salespeople have it right on their desks and they flip through it. I'm guessing that timeshare salespeople, especially the good ones, have the entire thing memorized. The purpose of using the objection book is meant to wear the buyer down and refute every reason they give for possibly wanting to cancel. This eventually brings them to the point where they cannot provide an inarguable reason for canceling and therefore end up getting talked into keeping the contract.

The process can in fact seem a lot like your world is ending...

The price will never be lower, just think of all the vacations you will be missing, we are going to sell out soon, this special deal is about to go away, you should do this for your family, you are this close to owning a piece of the Magic, etc. etc. etc.

It's a grueling process and is unpleasant to say the least. My comment was meant to prepare the OP for that, I guess being funny was just an added benefit.

I agree . I just thought the way you phrased it was funny . Especially when I think back to some of my negotiations in thr past .

Like when I bought a new car but wanted the left over model they have a buch of reasons why you should get the new model .

Timeshare sales people likely wrote the book. Historically, at least before the last slow down, good timeshare sales staff often made $250K and up. Those with the skills of top timeshare sales are often called confidence men in other circles. Phrases such as they could sell "ice to a drowning man", "ice to an Eskimo" are often applicable to this group. Many of them could step into any car dealership and quickly become the top salesperson.
