I just loved my DVC membership a little more

Just for giggles, I went on the WDW website and looked what a two bedroom Std Kidani room costs the first night of our December trip. (12/22/13)

$1,431.00

Makes me feel much better for paying almost that exact amount for our dues this year.

I cannot imagine a regular person paying rack rate for that a night.. Maybe.. .. I guess..

Even so the 45% off room only is still.. 800+ per night.. but something I think someone (not a billionair) would pay for a trip...

I think you'd be surprised. For our first WDW trip, I went to the web site and took the package price they offered without questioning it. I've learned a lot more in the years since, and wouldn't think about ever paying that full amount again. But not everyone who goes to WDW has found the DIS yet. (Poor them.)

You want more giggles, take a peak at the rates for a GV!

We've hosted 3 fabulous, 5 - 6 days family reunions at various OKW GV's and let me tell you, were I not sold on DVC when I bought (truly not the case), the 1st GV stay sealed the deal for me! One of the best decisions I made for our family and friends!

Oh yeah! I know how you feel! People always laugh be cause we don't have children so why in the world would we own a Disney timeshare. Then I ask them how much they pay for a regular room and sit back and watch their faces. Priceless!

Talking Wow, what are family is saving

BabsBunny,
I went into to see what my Dec 1-8,2013 trip would cost , 3 Adults at AKV -Jambo House Deluxe Studio -Standard View =$3079.16 . That's over 2 1/2 years of payments to DVC.

It was more than what I thought it would be(OUCH). I can't believe someone would pay that price.


I love that we have are little slice of heaven, with out all the stress of what Resort to stay at ,and wondering if its good enough for everyone.

by the way, I leave this Monday back to WDW

Inspired by the OP I just priced out our recent and upcoming stays. Our recent trip was in an OKW GV and our next trip is split between a BWV Standard Studio and a BWV GV. The points cost was 896 points. The cash cost, if booking through CRO with no discounts would be...drumroll please...

$22,840!

Of course without DVC I would not be booking a GV, but that is the beauty of the membership, isn't it?

Thanks for your replies.

I see so many negative threads on here. Personally, I'm happy we bought in and try not to take these nice accommodations for granted.

Totally agree. We're in a funny stage where we're not ready to add on yet, but only have enough points to go once per year, and lately we've been going twice. We keep kicking ourselves with the cash bookings, even though we've gotten good discounts (like 35% off from AP), it's still money that could go towards another resale buy. We don't know if we'll keep going twice a year, though. And when we do book cash, we book a regular club room, not a 1BR, so it's not as expensive... and not as roomy!!!

I hear you, psac. We started with a 160 pt contract and then add 100 more in early 2011 while we were on the Dream. My husband and I have become spoiled with our one bedroom villas. Our kids are at the age where school/work conflicts get in the way of family trips -- plus they haven't been gung ho about vacations with mom and dad. So that means DH and I have been escaping a few nights twice a year over the last two years.

But the cool thing is that it's so flexible. After our three night trip to BWV in a couple weeks, we won't go again until Christmas when all four of us will go.

The only negative about our add on is when the bill for dues comes in the mail. It's a little painful writing that $1400+ check.

instead of paying cash you should look into renting points. That would probably save you a bunch over the cash price everytime you decide you want to go that "2nd time" in a year. Do that until you're ready to add on pts. Enjoy your trip home!

Have you considered going on the monthly payment plan? Since you're writing a check and not using a credit card, from what you wrote, why give Disney all your money up front when you can spread it out over the full year?
