Congratulations! We have owned at VWL since 2001 and we love it. We were also impressed with the professionalism of our guide. We've added on small contracts through Disney twice and have thought of adding on through a resale, but it was just so easy through Disney! Enjoy!

Congrats and welcome to VWL, our home away from home. I'll tell you right now that you two must visit at some point during the Christmas holidays--the Lodge is spectacular! Welcome home!

My first trip to WDW for Christmas was the year we bought VWL, and it was the first week of December as yours is. That's a perfect week to be there as the weather is generally nice, the crowds aren't spectacularly huge (we tend to do EMH, anyway), the decorations are up everywhere, the Osborne Lights are going full bore, and yet you get to be home for the actual Christmas celebration. Have a great time!

Congrats! I took a DVC tour and had a great guide as well who actually recommended (in the most subtle way possible of course) that given my situation resale would be the better option. He was very professional and respectful of my numerous resale vs. direct ?s. I'm now in the process of buying my first resale contract at AKV because it was the best choice for me. But I'm glad buying direct was the best choice for you -- enjoy it!!!

We have several contracts--some direct, some re-sale. We have no regrets about any of our purchases and very much enjoy being members.

Welcome home EastAtlantaGuys! Don't make yourselves scarce here on the Dis

Congrats OP! My DW and I also just purchased direct, but at BWV, and we too couldn't be happier to have the home resort we wanted. Our favorite time of the year to go is during F&W and to be able to book BWV 11 months out was well worth it to us. We looked at doing resale also, but for the first time direct just made more sense. I'm kinda jealous that you got VWL, as that is one of my absolute fav resorts, . And just as an aside, we're also in the ATL, and I agree being close definitely makes buying direct easier to handle (since our travel costs are minimal). GL to you both, and Welcome Home!

Welcome Home fellow Atlantans! Post-Thanksgiving is a great time to go to WDW! I love being 6-7 hours from WDW - any closer and I might feel the gravitational pull to go even more than I do now!

No flames here. You made an informed decision and took advantage of all avenues. You took the tour, asked questions, "reserved" points at AKV , then took advantage of your Right of Rescission. No worries.

The key point is that you made an informed decision, so the extra cost is outweighed by your desire for access to the Collections (which I like, too).

Plus, you likely paid what <looks at DVCNews (thanks Tim!)> $102/point-ish. This is about the same we paid for our points over the years, and much less than the going rate for a giraffe room . <I kiid, I kiid :P>.

Again, congrats! You made a wise decision.

oh, and Welcome!

The only thing I don't like about older DVC resorts are their contract end date: VWL: 2042 vs. BLT 2060. I wish all their contract has the same length, eg. 50 years or something starting from the year your purchase.
