Not enough points! LOL

All our points are at BWV, the best place to stay.
Lol. Yes I have heard that. I would love more but I don't want the additional annual dues

DVC is not for everybody. IMO if you plan on WDW every 2 years then it could be for you!

Not complicated at all, you buy points and use them and pay the annual dues.

Yup......easy as...and you can borrow points from upcomming years, as we have done to maximise our visits...i think our next available points are from 2015

How far ahead can you borrow points.

Sometimes we have only borrowed a small amount from the next year, my theory is then I do not have to bank them LOL

Sounds like you need to buy more!

I felt the same the first time we went to a presentation. You really need to do your research to make sure it's for you. As a timeshare it is really flexible and it's always exciting to plan our next holiday.

I think you can borrow up to 2 years in advance...so this year you can use 2012,13,14 points......

I have stripped our BLT points...now have to use my VB points (2013,14,15) for next years hols at BWV........

Easy as.....

Clarification....you can bank last years points, use this years points and borrow next years points to give you three years worth of points. You cannot borrow two years in advance.
Cheers!!

yep...but as i always plan 1 year in advance i just count 3 years.....sorry for the confusion...so my 2013 trip i can use 2013,14 & 15....

eg: for my BWV trip in sept 2013..i am taking 60 points VB from 2013, 2014 & 34 points from 2015.......total 154

for my GCH this coming feb i took the points from my 2013/2014 BLT allotment

so after I finish next year I will have 26 points in my 2015 VB account, 10 points in my 2014 BLT account.....and then it starts all over again....

I'm pleased to see that it's not quite as simple as people make out it to be because it still confuses me heaps!!
