We would like to add AK as another home resort early next year. I know I should post on dvc thread but sometimes they scare me and you folks are so friendly! What are your true experiences of resale vs direct? I want to start saving , budging etc but need to decide if direct or resale is best first. Tia
Paula, we bought three of our five contracts via resale. We bought our VGC direct because there was no other way to get them when we bought. That said, we rushed (and bought our last two contracts at double the number of points we really wanted) to get in before the March 2011 deadline where they changed the rules.

I don't ever plan on using my points to pay for a cruise, but I didn't want anyone to tell me I could or couldn't use my points however I wanted. I think even now if I needed more points (which I don't see ever being a problem), I would go resale because you can save tons of money.

Just the other day we were calculating prices of points and cruises. A four day dream cruise would have used 115-135 points per person, and the cash price was $1,949 and change, that was without the 10% onboard booking credit. If I rented those points out for $10pp I would get anywhere from $2300-$2700 which would give us some nice spending money on our cruise.

This is only our second year having a ton of points and already I'm seeing that we will be banking our points and rushing to use them, so I'm more than happy to discuss point renting with those who need them.

Thanks! We don't ever plan on using the points for the cruise. We paid cash for our cruise this october coming as it worked out better deal as you rightly point out. We did it on our last cruise 10% plus onboard credit :-) thanks for info we wont be so scared now to do resale! :-)

Ugh... I was coerced into heading up the Social Committee at work.

I think I'm going to make all gatherings Disney themed... If I start with "dress like a princess", do you think they'll replace me???
