I would ONLY buy DVC to stay at DVC resorts. If one wants Orlando and other options all in one, DVC is not the best. I'd look at Wyndham, Marriott, Bluegreen, Starwood, Worldmark, Hilton or others. Wyndham might give you the most/best non DVC options, Bluegreen will give you a better chance of exchanging in to DVC, Marriott/Hilton/Starwood will give you better resort quality options.

I'm unclear why you thought you could only buy DVC direct based on your vacation home situation. If you're thinking of a 1031 exchange, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't work with DVC in any way.

Thanks to everyone for all the information. I am researching all kinds of options now. I don't intend to "pull the trigger" on this until next spring or so. I have lots of research to do. Meanwhile, I have decided that for my next WDW vacation, I will try to rent points to see if I like the amenities (ie: kitchen, laundry etc) enough as well as decor, etc.

I'm an accountant by trade so every potential decision requires a spreadsheet. And every decision requires a pro and con T-table.

I am so glad that members of DIS have pointed me to a wealth of valuable information.

I requested information from DVC and got a call today. However, I am a hard sell and only wanted the points charts and someone I can ask questions. He sent them via email today.

Thanks again!

You will find that most of the items on the pro side are immeasurable and most of the items on the con side are financial and easily quantified. This might make it difficult to buy with your background/mentality. One thing I might consider is looking at resale, which brings the financials more into line and gives you a much lower risk level with regards to your exit strategy should you decide that you no longer need/want to own DVC. In the end it may come down to answering two simple questions. Can I truly afford this and do I want it? Good luck with your research.
